Last week we reviewed the BrainBox First Colours game and this week we are back with another in the series – First Numbers.
The BrainBox First Numbers game is a great addition to the series, helping to teach children numbers but also practice the numbers they already know. The game consists of a lot of thick card squares which are double sided. Each card has multiples of an object on one side and then the other side asks how many of each thing was on the reverse.
When we started playing this game LP wasn’t very sure of some numbers, or the different objects and would often count the number of items wrong but after a couple of weeks of playing she has worked out how to count properly and loves to count the things on the cards – dolls, fish, apples etc.
The game has also taught LP a few objects that she didn’t know the names for which is a great addition to the game and one that LP loves as she really enjoyed learning new words.
The cards with multiples of the same object on only go up to five with counting but then the other half of the cards have actual numbers written on so the child can recognise the digits for example cakes with number candles on the top rather than a certain number of candles. LP isn’t quite at this stage yet and finds it hard to recognise numbers but I know in time she’ll love playing this half of the game too.
Disclosure: We were sent the above game for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.
