LOGICO Piccolo & Geometry 1, By LOGICO - REVIEW

Nature/ Type:            Learning Activities 

Rating:                       ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Recommended age:   6 year-old ++ 

Who would love this: Parents looking for fun, screen-free activities for school-age kids 

There are so much to love about LOGICO Piccolo. It’s screen-free and non-electronic, although its tablet-like appearance might remind you of an iPad from a quick glance. Both of my kids love LOGICO! Today, I would love to share about LOGICO Piccolo and another activity booklet that we really love - “Geometry 1”. (Thank you LOGICO (Australia) for providing a copy!). 

Why I love ❤️ this set: 

(1) Colourful & Engaging Activity Board 

LOGICO Piccolo is an activity board targeting kids of the age from 5 to 9 year-old (for younger kids - check out LOGICO Primo). Piccolo consists of a cleverly-designed handheld board with 10 colourful, tactile and chunky buttons that can move around the frame. There is a great selection of activity booklets that go with the Piccolo board. Insert an activity card into the slot, read the instructions, identify the problems, recognise the connection, find the matching colours, and push the buttons to the correct spots. There is an incredible series of “complex” thinking steps involved here, and I’m pretty impressed watching the kids enjoying the experience and “playing” with it like some really cool games! 

(2) Activity Booklets With 16 Learning Cards 

LOGICO activity booklets cover a diverse range of topics from colours, shapes, numbers, mathematics, language readiness,  and more. We tested out the “Geometry 1” booklet recently. I really enjoy the wide array of problems and logical thinking issues featured in the 16 learning cards. There are puzzles on finding the geometrical shapes that composed a figure, recognising objects from different perspectives, matching the position of an object, building patterns, and completing a sequence of patterns etc. The illustrations are colourful, and the activities are thought-provoking and fun! 

(3) Self-Checking Feature For Independent Learning 

We LOVE the self-checking feature! Once the puzzles are done, kids can flip the cards over and confirm the answers independently by looking at the coloured buttons printed on the reverse of each card. 

(4) Light-Weight, Compact & Travel-Friendly 

This is a fantastic educational resources which would stand the test of time. Similar to the Primo frame - Piccolo board is light-weight, compact, with no loose components. It is a marvellous travel companion!
