    Reluctant math student LOVES this! January 14, 2013
    Reviewer: TKDMama  
    This product makes the abacus so approachable and easy to understand. It starts out pretty easy but has my student really pondering things quickly. For a kid who hates math books this is welcome site on the school table. It helps him get into the right frame of mind to move into other math activities. It also works on following directions and paying attention to the details of the clues. We are glad we purchased this!

    Challenging for me as well as my daughter October 3, 2011
    Reviewer: Sara Matson from Carver, MN United States  
    My 10-year-old daughter and I worked these together at first, neither of us having had any idea of how an abacus works. We both found them challenging, but possible, to do and we both felt quite satisfied when we got the right answer! She does them by herself now, and I think the game is a fun way to practice logic.

    fun math August 22, 2011
    Reviewer: Rebecca Kvenvolden from Federal Way, WA United States  
    When I bought this, my intentions were to try to incorporate more non-traditional math in our day and maybe even INCREASE my children's stamina for math.  I was not disappointed. Math in puzzles is always fun, and this is reusable indefinately! I think Aba-Conundrums  also really incorporates tactile learning, which is good not only for tactile learners but for all children to develop that skill and stretch their own capacity.  LOVE IT!
