Times Table Bubble Board, By Junior Learning - REVIEW

Nature/ Type:          Pop-it board with time table 

Rating:                     ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 

Recommended age:  7 year-old ++   

Who would love this: Kids that enjoy pop-it toys / parents looking for a stimulating timetable board 

 “Times Table Bubble Board” from Junior Learning makes multiplication looks fun and non-boring! I’m loving the magic of a pop fidget as a mathematical tool. 

Why I love ❤️ this toy:

(1) Learn Multiplication With Unique Pop-It Board 

Our 7-year-old is right at the stage of multiplication-learning, and he loves using this Bubble Board as a way to cross-check his timetable calculations. The soft silicone has 144 pop-it bubbles, arranged in the grid of 12 rows and 12 columns. The factors 1 to 12 are printed above the first horizontal bubble row, and on the left-most border of the first vertical bubble column. Each of the bubble is numbered with a sum in the Time Table (for example, the number “20” is printed on the bubble intersected with 4 X 5). Kids can pop the bubbles whilst solving the equation, one at a time. This bubble board keeps the kids engaged and focused with the counting, and it’s just so unbelievably satisfying to pop! 

(2) Observe And Discern Multiplication Patterns Using Time Table Board 

I love timetable boards - they are a great way to demonstrate patterns and relationship of the numbers in a visually-engaging way. Mathematics used to be THE subject that I dreaded the most, so I’m pretty happy to see such a clever and interactive mathematics aid, showing us the interesting patterns hidden behind the rules of multiplications. For example, kids can see from the board that any number multiplied by “one” will always remain as the same number, and any number multiplied by “10” will give us the original number + 0. 

(3) Light Weight & Engaging Silicone Pop-It Board  

I love that this board is light weight, keeping the kids occupied and happy, and stress-releasing. We love the durable, easy to clean, and “squeezable” silicone material. We love the addictive popping sound and the good large size. 

(4) Minimalist Design & Less Distracting 

I have seen many similar pop-it boards in the market with multi-colour rainbow options, but I personally think nothing beats the single colour of blue. It’s calming, less distracting, and functional with minimalist design. I also love that the factors 1 to 12 are printed on the horizontal and vertical borders of the board (not on the pop-it bubbles themselves), which makes this board less confusing compared to many similar timetable pop-it boards in the market.
