    We are really enjoying this app!

    All three of my children enjoy this app. My 5 yr old is doing 1 family. My middle child has been working his subtraction and harder addition. My oldest is practicing division and mult. The all really receiving the tickets to receive virtual prizes. They enjoy this math game so much the other night they were arguing over who was going to play first.

    Another winner!

    I already bought Math Factball by the same company a while back and my kids play it and it has been great for learning their multiplication and division tables. When I saw this new game by the same company, I thought I'd give it a try. Once again, they've got a winner. You have to go to their website to see screenshots, but its a really cute game and very well done. Nice for keeping the kids entertained while learning - what more could I ask?

    Great

    I have a 7 & 8 year old they both love it. So much more fun than flash cards. Keeps them playing by trying to get metals but also getting tickets to trade for prizes and new hats for the moles. I enjoyed playing it as well while testing for them. Now i wish they would take this formatt and use sight words as well, I would by that app as well.

    Good concept overall

    My son is is 6. He finds this game to be too much pressure since it's timed. He would tend to get really frustrated if he pushed the wrong answer in a hurry. This would be good for kids who are more laid back, but it is a really fun concept. I think it would also be good once they have some confidence.
