Rated 5 out of 5 by from POP goes the FUN! I was especially excited to review this game because I think it is important that children think of math as FUN. Math is such an important part of every day living! This cute math-fact game comes in a box that looks like a gumball machine! There are different levels at which you can play. The various levels makes it fun (and a great learning experience) for kids ages 4-12. Level 1 has you place the gumball machine (container) in the center of the playing area. The player spins to see how many gumball cards he/she should take. For each gumball, if you solve the math fact correctly, you keep the gumball. If you answer incorrectly, you place the gumball in a pile of "un-popped" cards.(Go through the pile later for practice.) If you draw a "POP!" card, you have to put all your cards back in the box. You keep taking turns into all gumballs are out of the machine. The player with the most gumballs wins! My daughter and I like to put our own little spin on things. Since she is only 6, we play until one of us has 10 gumballs. The first person with 10 gumballs is the winner. We've also played it where whoever gets the "POP!" card gets to take their opponents gumballs! I took this to my daughter's kindergarten class. They do 9 minute centers, so we played it where whoever had the most gumballs at the end of 8 minutes (we need clean up time) got a REAL gumball! It was a hit! Sure, they start out using their fingers, but they quickly start memorizing these essential math facts from the repetition. My daughter's class LOVES this game! Product Details: Includes 90 math-fact cards (1-10), 10 POP! cards, spinner and guide (printed on box). Measures 3½L x 3½W x 6H". For 2-4 players. The low price makes it a very affordable very fun birthday or classroom gift. If you have a child who is struggling with math facts, I highly recommend this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addition and Subtraction Facts I like that this game made math facts fun. My children have had fun playing this together before starting our school work in the morning. There are a few ways to play this game; however, we like to play with the original rules without the stopwatch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun way to learn the math facts I was looking for fun ways to help my 1st grader memorize her math facts and so far this is working for us. The first time we played it through, it was anything but "fast paced". Every time we found a "pop" card I groaned inside. I hated dumping my collection back in and starting over, not because I wanted to win but because it made the "fast paced" game drag to nearly an hour. We decided to modify the rules for future games - a "pop" card is now a good thing to get since it counts as two gumballs instead of one. My only real complaint about the game is the limited number of math facts. The facts only go up to a SUM of 10. That means that a lot of the 1 - 10 math facts are missing; 1+10, 6+6, etc. If the sum would be greater than 10, it's not included in the set. I would strongly suggest that Learning Resources produce a "supplement" pack for the missing math facts, all the way up to 12+12. As it is, I may just end up using a sharpie to change some of the easier facts to ones she needs to learn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gumballs + Math = Fun! My 5 year old may just have started Kindergarten, but I can tell already he is going to need a push to do homework and learn. He is definitely smart but also lazy so I know I have to be creative when coming up with "homework" practice for him. Right now I use incentives, like candy and iPad time for him to work on worksheets but that is only going to last so long. The Learning Resources "POP for Addition" game is a fun way to get kids to work on math problems while playing a game! It includes 90 addition and subtraction problems on little cardboard gum balls and then 10 POP cards for a spin on the game. To play you spin the spinner and pick 1-3 gumballs to solve. For each one you solve you keep, putting the others aside to practice later. The goal of the game of course is to collect the most gumballs. The POP cards allow you to put a spin on the game, with suggestions for gameplay on the box. Everything stores nicely in the sturdy cardboard box. Its funny how something so simple can be so appealing to kids. The gumballs (cards) are bright and perfectly sized for little hands. This is definitely a fun way for kids 6 and up (or sooner if you want to start) to start working on their math problems!
