What the experts say:
Learning new skills at a young age requires that children be motivated, while being cognitively and physically engaged with their environment. In that way, Marbotic games use the best of what technology has to offer to young children, by providing nice and colorful wooden shape that children can manipulate while using a fun and interactive space to do it. I particularly love that their games have an open-play approach, without the stress of a timer or different levels to reach, making them ecological. They also are highly motivational – what kid now doesn’t want to play on the tablet? – while representing a great educational option for young children.
All screen-based activities for young children are not created equal, and Marbotic games are the type of toys that I would recommend to parents. Marbotic has kept developing new apps to allow for more learning while still using the same wooden toys, making it a toy that has a better longevity.
We’ve incorporated the Marbotic letters and numbers + app into our homeschool curriculum for the past several months. Where most apps rely on children interacting with only a screen, Marbotic includes the tactile addition of physical numbers and letters placed on the screen. This game is a great way to introduce early math and literacy concepts, and it’s even more fun to use the app in a foreign language!
I had the chance to give a try to MARBOTIC.
Wood letters and wood numbers + screen App can actually be a good combo. My 4 years old daughter who shows a lot of interest into learnings was happy to manipulate the letters and the numbers.
I really liked the size of the letters and numbers : it is big enough to be manipulated easily by a kid. And all the letters and numbers are clear enough to be recognized easily.
Regarding the screen app, I think MARBOTIC has a good model with “infinite games” because it avoids addiction. Kids don’t get any rewards to finish a level ; they decide when they want to stop or if they want to continue.
For a child who wants to learn and recognize letter sounds and/or wants to start counting, MARBOTIC can be a good 1st approach
We are usually not big fans of games on tablets. But Marbotic is not “just” a game. It’s an amazing tool to help the kids improve their skills to read and count! The quality of the products, of the apps, of the content are very high. It helps ours preschool-kindergartener to recognize the letters, numbers, the sounds…. and as soon as our 2nd grade practiced a lot in english, now she is learning how to read and write in french!
