My neighbor who has much older kids dug these out of his garage and gifted them to Mischa and Phoebe. They are such a throwback…tech hungry kids might at first wonder where the bells and whistles are, but they are so simple and addictive that I even wanted to play with them. Perfect car trip toy!! So simple and analog- you just wrap a red thread around the stick from the question on one side, to the answer on the other. I looked them up- they actually sell early childhood levels as well as math, geography and more.
