Children will love Trucky 3. This puzzle game comes with three trucks with see-through cargo holds. The challenge is for kids to stack colored blocks inside the cargo holds so that it all fits. There are 10 blocks in different shapes and colors, and each challenge tells kids what blocks to use. Kids have to figure out how to make the blocks fit. There is only one solution. Trucky 3 comes with a challenge booklet that has 48 challenges at four levels: Starter for ages 4 and up, Junior for ages 5 and up, Expert for ages 6 and up, and Master for ages 7 and up. On the back of each challenge page is the solution. This is a fun take on a classic style of logic game that kids can play by themselves or with others. It is a great learning game because it helps children develop logical reasoning, strategic planning, and visual and spatial perception. And, the game evolves with the child’s skill level, allowing kids to proceed through the challenges at their own pace.
SmartCar is a wooden game that evolves with your child’s growing skills. Kids will love the challenge of assembling a car. As they get better at constructing the pieces, the plans get more difficult. Once it is assembled, the creative play continues. The set contains 48 challenges from easy to difficult, a solutions guide, wooden car chassis, and 4 colorful wooden blocks. Great for kids ages 3-8.
