They won't put it down!
Endless possibilities, endless opportunities, endless fun; IcoSoKu is a brilliant mathematical brainteaser with unlimited challenges. Place IcoSoKu number buttons randomly around the surface, then match the dotted tiles to the numbers. The dots on the IcoSoKu tiles surrounding each number button must add up exactly to the number on the button. You've succeeded when you've placed all the dotted tiles correctly so the numbers match the surrounding dots, with no dotted tiles left over.

Learn while having fun!
More difficult than it looks, IcoSoKu reinforces both math and thinking skills. Using numerals from one to four, IcoSoKu Jr is a perfect introduction to mathematical combinations and sequencing. The original IcoSoKu uses numbers one to twelve and is better suited for the older child. Play IcoSoKu or IcoSoKu Jr and watch their math skills soar!
The IcoSoku Original is shown here, so you can see how it is played. Of course the Jr. version is easier!
IcoSoKu Jr. is a math-based puzzle that will have your kids happily crunching numbers. Your pint-size puzzler will use basic addition to get started, but it will take focus and strategy to make the whole puzzle add up. The numbers can be re-arranged to create thousands of challenges. The possibilities are endless!

    Math fun January 17, 2015
    Reviewer: Melissa W.  
    Our son was immediately interested but quickly realized that persistence would be the name of the game. I think he really enjoyed the tactile nature of the mind teasing fun too!

    Maybe my other kids will like this one? October 28, 2014
    Reviewer: Liz M  
    This seemed to hard for my 7 year old. Or maybe she just lost interest because it wasn't her thing? I'm hoping my boys will enjoy this more. The concept seems neat, so we will keep it on our bookshelf and try again in a year or so. My youngest keeps thinking its a ball, so it must be kept high!

    Neat game, but be gentle with it April 26, 2014
    Reviewer: Tricia  
    We got this for our first grader, but it she has not been able to figure it out yet, so we have only brought it out a few times. She can do it partially, but she gets too frustrated at having to rearrange in order to make it come out right. We'll keep it around for when the kids are a bit older (I enjoy it, even though it's the Jr. version!). One other thing: A couple of the pieces (yellow circles) where you stick the numbers in pulled out after we removed the numbers a few times, so be careful with it. It's not exactly sturdy. You can pop the pieces back in, but they'll pop back out again (sometimes at high velocity if you squeeze the game!). I also wish it would come in a storage case of some kind. We keep it in a plastic bag so the pieces don't get lost.

    Perfect for focus and math skills June 13, 2012
    Reviewer: Rhonda  
    I love using this with my autistic 10yo son. He needs reinforcement with his math skills but also needs the critical thinking and focusing skills that this demands. It only goes to four (not six as the description states), but that is plenty for him to have to really think to work things out. It seems simple enough to get the first few points, but then it gets tricky when they have to start rearranging things to make it work, which is when they have to push through frustration to get it done. My son doesn't always handle that well, but with the right motivation he can learn that valuable skill. I think I like this more for the push to learn persistence than the math!
