Reviews - What do customers think about SMARTLAB: 1st Grade Challenge: Ages 6+?
Great fun for kids aged 5 to 8 Aug 13, 2007
This would be a great activity for a car or plane trip. It is not annoying loud (and you can turn the sound off). The questions in the 1st grade challenge were mostly easy for my almost-nine year old daughter, however, the format of the game kept her interested. If you had two children, you could definitely go with the younger age and the older one would enjoy playing along. You can play a two-player game, passing it back and forth.
If a child can read, they could play this independently. It's easy to understand. However, my daughter and I even enjoyed involving my 3 year old, by telling him to press the right color button for the answer.
The questions vary from simple math (6+5 =) to questions on money and geography, and even some that I didn't know (Who was the first modern woman doctor? A. Deborah Sampson B. Eleanor Roosevelt C. Elizabeth Blackwell D. Susan B. Anthony).
One thing that increases the fun of it, is that on the display it tells the child to go to a certain number within a certain section (coded by color) for the next question. For example, 57 Red. This makes the combination of 500 questions have staying power. A child is not going to go through all of these in one day and be bored.
