OSMO Review: Math Wizard and the Secrets of the Dragons

October 1, 2020

Today I get to share something extra fun with you!  OSMO very generously gifted our family with their newest addition to their growing collection of games! I’ve shared before how much we love the OSMO system and once again I am impressed with their ability to take hands on learning to the next level.

Once again I am impressed with their ability to take hands on learning to the next level.

Math Wizard and the Secrets of the Dragons was immediately a hit. The suggested age range for the measurement games is 6-8 however Rutledge (4) could easily play with a little assistance and Sadie (5) could play independently. It is the most adorable game with really fun manipulative pieces. The children explore magical lands with all kinds of interesting dragons. First they measure the dragon and then they feed the dragons correct amounts of food based on the dragon’s length.

We are pretty selective about what screens we use in our home. They have a significant impact on our kids, most significantly on our youngest. However, OSMO games on occasion are a good way to maintain some balance. We’ll use them as a fun Friday activity or for quiet time in the afternoon for our oldest.  Joshua and I really like how they are secure games- no need to access the internet (other than downloading.)

We really like how secure the games are- no internet required!

The game comes in a fun box that looks like a  box. Inside you’ll find a full color book of dragons, two mini rulers (cm and in,) and a few dozen food game pieces all conveniently stored in the box. It is important to note that for this game you need to have the OSMO base and reflector to play. 

This is sort of an extra side note but as a family with sensory needs I really appreciate the gentleness of background noise/sounds in the activities. It’s primarily nature sounds which we found soothing. Overall, we really enjoyed the activity and are really grateful we were gifted it. I’m looking into the addition and subtraction expansion pack to this set as I think it could be a really great support for my budding mathematicians! 🙂

As always, I’m happy to answer any questions you might have or about how we use the OSMO system! Feel free to email me at hello@everydaylearnandplay.com
