Of all the games, I loved the Numbers game. I can't think about a better way to teach kids addition and subtraction and that too at a mental math level. Osmo team has figured out a way to make the kids relate addition to "bring units together" and subtraction to "separate out units". That's precisely what it is and since the idea is hit at such a basic level, kids are easily able to grasp the concepts. I would highly recommend all parents to play these games along with the kids and gently let them understand that the things they are doing in Numbers game is nothing but the "boring" addition and subtraction they learn at their school. I have seen this really motivating my daughter who has now started using the mental calculation idea back at school while doing the same. In my opinion, this the best way to derive unbelievable value out of this product. You just need to do it a couple of times, your child will take it up from there. Similarly, found the Words game a good way to improve spellings and vocabulary. Osmo has lot more libraries on their My Osmo portal. Make sure you sign up while doing registration and download these libraries.
Next your kid will be able to play the games.
They are incredibly complicated and confusing.
You'd be better off buying a regular $5 app. This thing is too complicated for young kids to enjoy, and too simple for older kids. Biggest waste of money I have spent on Amazon.
My daughter really likes the tangrams - they have levels that get more difficult as it goes along.
The number game is pretty fun too but perhaps a little too easy for my 9 year old. But when we had the original set at age 5, I had her play with it for 10min everyday and I found she gained more confidence with addition and substraxtion. Plus she never complained playing with it (compared to practicing math in a traditional workbook)
I’d high recommend getting this kit starting age 4 or 5. But probably becomes too easy after age 8. If your child is younger, I’d recommend the junior kit!!
My child does like the numbers activity, but that is it. He will do the Words one some, but again it is rather boring (so is the numbers one, but just not quite) even though it is an important activity to do. Due to the nature of these activities, I remove one star. I probably would have given 4 stars (I did for the younger aged set) if I hadn't realized a downfall of this set by buying that one.
Since we also bought the younger child one, I learned that this one does have another deficiency. It needs the Osmo work pad. The Osmo work pad is nice quality, and if you are working on a child oriented table with a design on it, Osmo picks up the table design which can be problematic during activities, so that is why I docked another star. We use a piece of paper as a work mat, and while it works, is kind of lame.
There is a parent app that is not all that great, and their app to download and use the activities is so-so and semi-confusing. I did not pay full price - I would not recommend paying full price - but for a deal like I got, it is an okay purchase and we use it frequently so I am glad we purchased it (especially with isolation going on). It is fine, but really could have been excellent, and I hope in the future they make it so. I will keep an eye out for other activities in the future.
Personally we get a lot more out of abc mouse and homer app. We pay a much smaller monthly or annual fee for those. We can take them on the go without any pieces. And those allow al my kids of different ages to play their own level for the same price on one account. So I would suggest those over Osmo. You get much more bang for your buck and it can be used for all ages anywhere you are.
