Mind Games

kid o puzzle!

Say adios to old-school flashcards. These days, learning is all fun and games.

Build memory and matching skills with Bingory, a wooden game that challenges little Einsteins to fill their bingo cards with pairs of colorful illustrations (The Toy Maven, 6025 Royal Lane, suite 223; 214-265-9971).

Little linguists learn Spanish, sign language, or one of fourteen other languages with Uncle Goose foreign language blocks. Made from Michigan basswood, each set of nontoxic blocks features a letter of the English alphabet and its foreign equivalent, plus a number and an animal.

Piece together the mystery of fractions with a Kid-O puzzle that takes a hands-on approach to teaching math concepts (Little Bean Shop, 5308 Junius Street; 214-370-9111).

Brilliant.
