Got one with poor craftsmanship and game-killing bugs.

Comments about Educational Insights Math Slam™:

Put the batteries in and my 7-year-old started playing. Within the first couple problems it became apparent that the largest of the answer buttons was difficult to press, taking multiple tries at several angles before taking the answer. Then the wrong answers started popping up. Sometimes it gave the sound for a wrong answer when it was correct, and at the end it still said all of them had been correct. Occasionally it didn't show the correct answer at all, which usually turned out to be a problem in displaying the correct answer with the digits transposed (e.g., you could press "21" when the correct answer was "12", and it would make the sound for a correct answer. Put it back in the box and testing the "satisfaction guaranteed" part now.

    Comments about Educational Insights Math Slam™:

    I bought this to help my daughter with Attention Deficit Disorder focus on learning her math facts (addition and substraction). She used it during 1st and 2nd grade, and we saw a sharp increase in her timed test scores (both at home and school). One of the things I really liked was its durability--kids who don't really like math will enjoy "slamming" it--really hard--and it stands up to all that abuse!

      Comments about Educational Insights Math Slam™:

      I was given this product to review and we love Math Slam! My husband will be bringing it to his 2nd grade classroom next week, but at home our 4 year old son can do simple addition so he can play the Sum Slam level on this game. It really makes him think, and since the game is timed he is always wanting to get a better score. A positive feature is that the incorrect problems are recycled and asked again so the child has to learn the right answer- not just guess. We as parents love that there is a place for headphones so my son can use it in the car. The level and game options really span quite a range of ages. If you are looking to reinforce math in a fun way I recommend this product!
