How I Use It
The game is very basic and is only educational for students still looking to master basic visual/spatial skills like matching color or shape and object permanence. These are skills often mastered by 2-3 year olds, so the game has little purpose beyond children at that level. There aren't even extensions where children would learn the names of the shapes or colors. They are simply matching them. It seems likely to be worthwhile only to students with low language abilities.
My Take
It is fun initially even for 5-6 year old children, but interest is lost fairly quickly due to the games simplicity and repetitiveness. There seems to be no way to track progress through the game and the skills taught are very basic. I can't recommend for any child over 2 (or with abilities at that level).
