Dino Math Tracks Place Value Game is a prehistoric twist on teaching place value, counting, addition, and subtraction. Roll a number, then move your dinosaur to the appropriate ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands places. Includes game board, 16 dinosaurs, 72 cards, and 5 dice with 3 levels of play. Board measures 19″ x 19″. For 2-4 players. Grades 1+ | Ages 6+ LER 0712
The Dino Math Tracks game (winner of several prestigious awards, including an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal) is a race around the rainbow with a pack of pintsize, prehistoric pals. An unusual spin on a typical roll-the-dice-and-move game, it spotlights the mathematical concept of place value and gives kids reinforcement in what makes our base-10 number system tick. Each player is allotted one dinosaur for each of the four tracks (the tracks are labeled 1s, 10s, 100s, and 1000s). To play, a player rolls four dice to create a 4-digit number and then moves his or her prehistoric posse to the appropriate 1s, 10s, 100s, and 1000s places. Problem-solving strategies are honed as players scurry to get all four miniature mammoths or tiny triceratops into the dino haven, ahead of the other players' thundering herds. But look out! In the race to dino utopia, it's easy to get bumped by a baby brachiosaurus!
The Dino Math Tracks game provides multiple levels of play for a variety of ages. At the simplest level (perfect for a first-grader who knows Arabic numerals and one-to-one correspondence), kids use only the place track for the 1s. Later, cards with simple problems are introduced ("Stuck in a tar pit! Move your 10s dino back two spaces!"). At the most advanced level, players might encounter a question like this: "Your 10s dinosaur forgot its pants, so it went back 15 to get them. Then it hurried forward 25. How far did it get? Move that many." Young players will find the 2-inch, spunky vinyl dinosaur playing pieces irresistible. The game offers plenty of opportunities for friendly competition and brain bending--not to mention lots of nonthreatening practice at addition and subtraction. --Julie Ubben

Honestly, it doesn't teach a great deal of math, and even that not in a very rigorous way. Just some very basic basics, like recognizing place value (what's the difference between 1, 10, 100, and 1,000 for example—and which are which?) and counting.
And as an adult, I have to say that the game seems boring, repetitive, and unimaginative to me.
BUT, with that said, this game is an absolute favorite with my five-year-old, who wants to play it all the time still, months later. And while my six-year-old isn't quite *as* enamored with it, she still says okay every time, enjoys herself, and gets into the game.
So as with so many things in life, even if it seems dull to an adult, it can still be absolutely absorbing to a kid. And even if it doesn't teach all that much math, it's still G-rated and has numbers and counting in it. When you compare to all the other "absolutely absorbing to a kid" stuff that's out there in the world today, those properties make it stand head and shoulders above much of the rest.
I can see this being a favorite game for a while and saving it for her little brother (who’s 2 and loves playing with the dinosaurs).

I would say for independent play it's suited for year 2 onwards, But I use this to help my sons in year one as they are just learning place value.
