Both my kids (2 and 5) love this set, and I love that it doubles as a concentration/memory/strategy game and colorful building blocks!

I use this set with my 2-year-old by asking him to:

• Hand me a blue circle or purple square (color & shape differentiation)
• Stack certain shapes on top of others (learning to follow instructions)
• Hand me the shape identical to the one I am holding (there are two of each block)

Two ways to play:

1. Players are allowed to look at one of the challenge cards for 10 seconds, then they try to re-build the pattern from memory! They look at the card in 10-second increments.
2. Someone not on either team (a "caller") describes verbally what is in the picture and the teams try to re-build the pattern by description and memory.

The cards come in varying levels of challenge from easy to hard, and there are optional bonus questions at the bottom of each card. The blocks themselves are made of a light but tough plastic, are hollow, and feel well-made. They stack sturdily (obviously or I wouldn't be able to stack the spheres so high!) and aren't too easy to topple over.

My 5-year-old really enjoys playing independently, pulling out random cards and copying the pattern exactly. It sounds easier than it is – I've challenged her to get everything just right and it has taught her to be more observant of small details like whether or not the lines on a block are vertically or horizontally oriented.

I can't think of anything we don't like about this set – isn't that awesome? :) It's recommended for kids age 5-13 but I would say younger children will enjoy it as well since there are ways to simplify the gameplay.

What you see is literally what you get. Guess I had high Expectations, was a little disappointed. But the Concept is Clever!

Durable and more complex than you think puzzle game

      Comments about Learning Resources Itrax Critical Thinking Game:

      Hey, we received Mental Blox for review-all thoughts are our own.

      Adults who have taken any machine drawing classes can relate to the premise of this puzzle and game. Take an object and envision how it looks from the top, front, side left, side right or the bottom.

      Mental Blox adds a building dimension to this where the many blocks in the box all fit together in some configuration. It's not an interlocking puzzle, rather the blocks need to look like they do on a corresponding card. Start with the first cards and it's pretty simple. Our 7 year old could do the front facing and top cards pretty easily.

      Once things shifted to a side right or side left view it got more challenging for him. There are 40 different card puzzles and he got to the 11th card without any help, but then had to tag up for a little assistance. Some of the puzzle pieces are rounded, triangular, square, arrow shaped and beyond.

      The cards are coded by their ease, green, yellow and red. Adults will have to take a moment to look at all of the pieces and figure out how the red cards are accomplished. For example, card 40 has 9 blocks that need to fit together. Our five year old had trouble with the first cards and is a bit too young for them now. He just turned five, we'll try again in a month or so.

      For the price point this is a very nice, critical thinking puzzle/game that will assist kids in looking at things from a different angle. It's a good puzzle comparable to chess. Granted chess has thousands of moves and possibilities, but that too helps kids know that there is more than one way to approach something.

        Comments about Learning Resources Itrax Critical Thinking Game:

        "Do not be fooled by its appearance" could not have been a better description of this awesome toy! I gave these to my 4 yr old for her birthday and a month later it's still her favorite toy to play with. To watch her progression in just one week was amazing to me. I initially purchased them to work on her focus and listening skills. I was so impressed to watch her critical thinking at work - she would chose a card, build it , then double check her own work and to watch that process was amazing to me.. Her attention span was extremely short but now she sits here for long periods of time (for her.. 15 min to half hour) wanting to try the harder cards. A little frustration sometimes but after words of encouragement she gets it and I love to see her confidence and sense of accomplishment grow! What has amazed me is how these look so simple until you watch them at play and all the important benefits they receive from them. My one wish is that they make more cards available to add to the set!

          Fun for all

          By Messy Mama

          from Cincinnati, Ohio

          Comments about Learning Resources Itrax Critical Thinking Game:

          Once your child gets the hang of the game, like any other game, they are going to want to play it more often. However, this game, unlike a lot of other games, makes them think unlike other games. Which in my opinion is a win – win situation. You can play this game as individuals or as teams. Some kids are going to catch on a little quicker, while it will be a challenge for others. That's the great thing about the Mental Blox Game though, the game is great for all different skill levels.

          The Mental Blox Game is a fun, educational game that also focuses on motor skills. You can play by creating the patterns on the cards, your own, or turn it into races to create the patterns first. It is great family fun.

            Ready for some strategic game play?? iTrax is designed for ages 6 and up, and involves your thinking cap for play. There are three levels of play making it more challenging for older players.

            It is fast paced and very colorful play. Perfect for 2-4 players.The object of the game is to find the one path on the game card that connect two cubes, and re-create it using the correct rods and cubes. The first player to collect 7 cards wins.

            There are 3 levels of game play; Ace, Whiz, and Braniac

            It did take a bit of help from Mom to get them going on the game, but they they really enjoyed it. I love that it involves strategy and planning ahead. Great thinking skills are used.

            I love the compact nature of this game, allowing it to easily be brought along for playing with friends.

            I received a copy of this game in exchange for an honest review.

            Amazing Game - Requires thinking skills!

            By Cassandra - The So Cal Coupon Mommy

            from Beaumont, CA

            Comments about Learning Resources Itrax Critical Thinking Game:

            This is an awesome game that will keep the whole family busy, it does state that this is for ages 5-13, the whole family enjoyed it. This game will have you thinking and building, its a great brain-booster that can keep you thinking and trying.

            The kit comes with 20 different cards with different things to build/replicate. As well as 20 shapes/pieces, 2 of each, and 4 different shapes. Making this even more interesting. Also the box is perfect for storage, as it has a place for everything so you can quickly see if all the items are picked up and in its place.

            The goal is to replicate the image with the shapes blocks. some are harder then others, and getting the pieces in the right direction can sometimes be a little tricky. We have had some laughs and enjoyed trying to build them all. The best is to find cards that can be built twice and race. We have really enjoyed this kit.

            This is an yet another awesome toy/game from Learning Resources. I have been nothing but impressed with the amazing quality of products and the wonderful educational value that their items have. My daughter has struggled with some of them but over time, she has really learned and grown thanks to these amazing products.

              I received this product from Learning Resources for a review. All opinions expressed are my own. This product was a perfect fit for our shelves. My daughter just turned 4 and loves to play games that encourage thinking. She used this game as directed at first and was able to do almost half of the activity cards with a little guidance. She also loves using the cards to build what is shown or just use the blocks to build how she would like to. There are many ways to use this game!

                Comments about Learning Resources Itrax Critical Thinking Game:

                Learning Resources has done it again. I am so delighted they sent me this fun game to review! They have managed to supply teachers (and moms) with a great, differentiated, educational and mostly FUN game for our kiddos. There are two things I'm always looking for as a teacher: great, independent, critical thinking activities that are engaging AND activities that are differentiated. This little game has both of those things.The set includes enough pieces for 4 players (um...three boys 5, 7 and 9 plus a 46 year old mom was perfect) and has 25 double sided playing cards in three different levels of difficulty. The object of the game is to independently reproduce the path on the card that connects one square cube to the next faster than the other players. The person that creates their path to match the card first, wins!Beyond the fact that this is an excellent critical thinking and problem solving activity, the three levels of difficulty in playing cards is really what appealed to me with this activity. It meant that not only could my 5 and 7 year olds play together and be equally challenged and engaged, but my 5 and 9 year old could also play together. It was a blast for them to have a game that they each had a fair chance of winning. Way to go Learning Resources!

                The iTrax Game is an easy to learn game that takes no time to set up, play and get put away. Love this game and so does my six year old.

                The iTrax Game reminds me of games I play on my smartphone so I find it just as fun to play as do my kids.

                I love that this is a thinking game. I can see my little one's mind working away as we play.

                I love that there are three levels of play and that you can each play a different level in order to make the game more equal.

                I was provided this product in order to review it. You can read my full review on my website
