Customer Reviews of Sum Swamp™ Addition & Subtraction Game


Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loves it! My almost 5 year old plays this game at least 3-5 times a day. He plays with myself, my husband, and even will play by himself. When we first got the game, we used his fingers, and our fingers to show him how to add and subtract, but didn't talk at all about the evens and odds stones. Now that he's comfortable with the addition and subtraction, and is starting to know some of the answers without having to count, we've introduced evens and odds to him. He doesn't even know he's learning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to teach and reinforce addition and subtraction! This game was gifted to my 5 year old. He loves games, and this was no exception! He took to the bright colors and the fun animals pieces. The game is easy to play and the math concepts he is practicing is embedded into the game play. He doesn't even realize he is "learning" while he is playing. A great game for any child ready to take on some addition and subtraction skills!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My little boy loves playing this game. He is 4yrs old. We play this nearly everyday after school. It is wonderful for improving his understanding of addition and subtraction, plus understanding odd and even numbers. It is also aiding him from jumping from using his fingers to count on to mental arithmetic. It's fun too! He doesn't realise he is learning as he plays the game as its lots of fun. Have recommended it to lots of friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game… Even for Pre-School Age! We started playing this game when my oldest were 3 and 5 years old. The 3 year old really loved learning to add and subtract, and my 5 year old got a lot out of the "even" and "odd". They both really liked the game, and played it both with and without adults (once they got the hang of it). Highly recommend! Once my sister-in-law saw the kids playing this game, she decided to buy this for her 1st grade class to play during their free time too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Both of my children love this game. I have enjoyed playing this game with both of my children. It has been one of their favorites and has helped them with learning their math facts. My only wish is that replacement dice would be available. The markings on our dice have started to wear off, making the dice hard to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fun, fast-paced game Purchased for my 1st grader to work on addition/subtraction and this game is perfect! He is more confident of his answers and now helps his 4 year old sisters play. Game plays quickly so you can get in a quick game or play multiple games depending on your time restraints.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Game til ink came off dice This great game caught and kept the attention of my children, ages preschool to 1st grade. We've played it a lot, so much that the numbers on the dice wore off. We rewrote the numbers with a permanent marker. Other than that, a must for all children/families using games for learning simple addition and subtraction. When they aren't playing the actual game, the game pieces are great for pretend games: a snake, frog, turtle, and a snail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful learning tool! My boys, ages 5 and 7, love playing this game and it improved their math skills quite a bit after just a few times! Sum Swamp teaches the concept of addition and subtraction, not just the answer. My boys use counting bears during the game, so they can figure out the problems they don't know in their head. The game also teaches even and odd numbers which is a bonus. I plan to use this with my 4 year old soon! I was very impressed with the high quality of the game board and game pieces. It seems like most games these days are not made well. Sum Swamp is made to last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An amazing game! This amazing game will turn your child into a math genius. I bought one for my grandson, and his first grade teacher is watching him carefully, because she believes he is gifted in math. A must buy for 4 to 7 year olds. I wish the makers would invent a game for multiplacation and division.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My boys love playing this game! My 4 and 6 year old boys love playing this game! Both boys can add and subtract up to 10 and identify odds and evens. We play this game all of the time as a family (very quick game), my kids play independently, and even the 4 year old plays by himself. Has made math facts very fun and exciting!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous game! Fabulous, simple game-you'll be playing it right away-very quick to learn-great for short attention spans because a game from start to finish lasts maybe 10 minutes. We play it all the time.
