We trailed three new SmartGames out. The first is a preschool to early elementary aged game. Yes you read that right!! Finally your not yet reading but feels like they're as big as their sibling 5 year old can play!! Carter went to town with Little Red Riding Hood right away. He can also continue to set up the next game once he clears a level. It really is heaven!! Not to be undone even my math crazy 8yr old enjoyed playing!!
This tile based game works on visual and spatial recognition. It shows you a picture and using clear outlined pieces you stack different shapes and color to form he exact picture. The age range says 5 and up but the amazing thing is the advanced games are challenging for even adult puzzle lovers while the beginning ones are perfect for a new 5 year old.
IQ Puzzler Pro was our third sponsored game and is a classic with a twist. We've played the 2D version before in other forms and loved it. I jumped to the 3D puzzles and was quickly stumped. They are extremely challenging but fun! Even the seasoned brain teaser fan will be challenged. Hubby does forms of these challenges for a living and still had to think when playing. I recommend this for the extreme puzzle lover in your life down to a novice. It's also a smaller price point and in a travel type case which makes it the perfect stocking stuffer or birthday gift!!
In addition to the featured games here we LOVE Quadrillion, IQ Twist, and IQ Fit also. Our Christmas wish list includes Penguins on Ice!!
For my blog pictures I am featuring my kiddos and even a school friend who all on their day off school mid week played educational games!!! Yes, they chose these over Minecraft even with a friend over. We also partied/played these games with 10 rowdy Cub Scouts and they were begging for more time!! Tomorrow our extra copies of each game are heading in to second grade to challenge 45 8 year olds.
