Brain Factor is a colourful picture quiz with question cards that introduce children to the world around them. Questions feature number and pattern games, letter and blended sound recognition, shapes, mixed up stories, rhyming words and questions about the world. The questions for these age groups are picture based with simple supporting text and Milly the Mouse to guide you through.
We asked a mum what she thought of Brain Factor - "Brain Factor are a range of quiz fans for children ages 3 – 7. The convenient fan format means you can read a question then slide just slide out the next card to get the answer. It is a good size for children and robust, so it’s perfect for popping in a bag or in the car so you can pull it out and entertain the kids whenever you need. A very handy product for occupying those spare moments while waiting for a bus or for older siblings etc. A great alternative to them playing on a screen. The questions cover a wide range of topics including number and pattern recognitions, shapes, letter recognition, rhymes and mixed up stories. The simple text for the 3-4, 4-5, and 5-6 fans are accompanied by colourful appealing illustrations. Each of the younger fans has an animal character who leads the children through the question and introduces them to the world around them. Milly the Mouse in the fan for ages 3-4 gets involved in everything from gardening to learning to use a pedestrian crossing. There were lots of questions in these fans that opened up broader conversations with my 3 year old daughter about the world around. She’s enjoyed going back to the fan over and over and I’ve found the question level well judged. She was able to answer plenty of them, but found others challenging. Each of the fans have somewhere between 130 – 250 questions so you get a lot of use from them. I think these fans are helping her develop skills that will be useful when she starts school, but the best thing is she loves playing with them." Vanessa Parker
