This is a great game for kids to learn and explore. Where else could you play with things like actual hearts, tuning forks, dogs, logic gates and number switches? Many of the parts in the tool trays are changeable. The heart, for example, can be a human heart, rabbit heart, elephant heart, tortoise heart, cat heart or gerbil heart. It is like letting kids loose to play in a place that combines daddy's toolbox, a science museum and a math-oriented classroom. More than that, the experiments are fun. The parts move and change in amusing ways that will keep kids entertained as they learn. I wish they had had this program when I was a kid! And more puzzles are promised in the future, if your child runs out.
