I have been compensated in the form of product from Best Buy, but all opinions are my own.
The iPad use to be something my 6 year old daughter only used for reading books or watching movies. Osmo game system has changed that. It is an interactive game system that my daughter uses to help her with words, art, numbers and more all in a fun way. Osmo is designed for children ages 6 and up.
The Osmo Genius Kit comes with 5 games: Words, Masterpiece, Tangram, Newton and Number Games. The set also includes mirror and sturdy base , along with the game pieces and 5 game apps in the Apple App Store for free download. It is compatible with Apple iPad 2, 3, 4, all versions of iPad Mini and iPad Air.
Here are the details on each game:
Tangram- arrange wooden puzzle pieces into matching onscreen shapes. Play with your child or challenge yourself to more advanced levels with Osmo acting as your mentor by lighting up with each victory. My daughter LOVES this game. It is a really fun way to do puzzles. It is a little trickier than it sounds, which I think is the best part!
Newton- Use your creativity with inventive objects such as a handdrawn basket, grandma’s glasses, dad’s keys or anything around you to guide falling onscreen balls into targeted zones.
Words- Be the first to guess and spell out the on screen hidding word by tossing down real life letters faster than your friends. A related picture gives the clue. I like to play this game with my daughter and because she is only six I may or may not “help” her win.
Masterpiece – Supercharge your drawing skills with Masterpiece. Pick any image from the camera, curated gallery or integrated web search and Masterpiece will transform it into easytofollow lines and help you draw it to perfection. You can then share a magical timelapse video of your creation with your friends and family. This is SO cool!!!! I love this one just as much as my daughter.
Numbers- With a counting, addition, concatenation and multiplication mode, there is a challenge for everybody. As kids get more confident in one mode, they can move on the the next one, allowing them to learn at their own pace. My daughter is just using the addition mode right now and it is definitely helping.
The Osmo game system is definitely worth the investment. It is so versatile that the it will never get old. There are so many ways to play. You can check out some of the videos about Osmo on YouTube here.
Here is Osmo to purchase at Best Buy. I definitely recommend it as a family “toy” because it really is so educational, while being fun. It is versatile and can grow with your family.
