The agent who sold the Logico Primo claims that the product helps children develop the following abilities and skills: linguistic abilities, mathematical & problem solving skills, bodily-kinesthetic control, spatial-visual perceptibility & idea association skills, and recognition & concentration abilities. I tend to agree with what he claims.
In June this year, my husband and I got one set of Logico Primo as a gift for our four-year old daughter. She was ecstatic the moment she saw it. I helped her become familiar with it and after a while she was on her own.
Logico Primo supplements my daughter’s school lessons and keeps her busy while we, her parents, work on our computers.
If you are familiar with the Matching Type test, then you have an idea how Logico Primo works. The good thing with this is it encourages the child to go on because the game is not predictable. With my daughter, I let her move from the easiest to the more difficult sets. It does not look like she is having a test in school; hence, she does not feel any pressure at all.
The product comes with 1 Logico frame and 320 cards. This is recommended for children whose ages range from 3 to 6.
If you want to go out of town, this is an ideal material to bring (aside from the books and the toys). If you don’t have your own car, you need not bring all the 20 packs of cards otherwise you will be bringing with you the entire big red box. Three to five packs of cards is enough to keep your child busy while traveling.
In school, my daughter finds the exercises easier because she is already familiar with basic concepts like comparing big and small objects, similar and different objects, tall and short, left and right, and the like. Everyday after we do her school assignment, she requests for a Logico Primo session.
Aside from the fact that it helps my daughter develop her various skills, I like the product because of its immediate checking process “that helps children become motivated learners.” How does it work? After answering every card, the child flips it and gets the answers provided at the back of the card. A perfect score gives similar colors as shown in the picture below. Initially, you may read to your child the instructions and guide her through the activity but she can be on her own after that.
