Great games for kids!! Brain teasers, word puzzles and action games like these teach language skills, math skills, problem solving, color and shape matching, and fine motor skills such as touch-and-feel adjustment, an enhanced sense of timing, and and hand-eye coordination development...but, whether or not you FEEL like you're learning something...they're SO MUCH FUN that you'll even find adults sneaking in to play when you're not watching.
