Osmo

By now, most have heard about Osmo - an award-winning hands-on game system which fosters creativity and problem solving skills. To play you have to react, solve problems, be creative and manipulate real world components. 

Osmo is really pretty great. We have had it since it first released and a couple years later our daughter still asks to play with it. There are so many levels and new games that it is growing with her and continues to interest and challenge. The company also keeps coming out with additional games to add on which have all been top notch. 

A few years ago my daughter's class used Osmo Masterpiece to draw self portraits.  Masterpiece transforms a snapshot of anything you choose into an outline that you can then follow to essentially trace it onto paper with a pen, pencil, marker, or anything you want. It was very great project. I loved seeing cool to see each child's work.

The Genius Kit includes the basic Osmo stand and mirror components plus 5 games. 

  1. Numbers: Free form math (count, add & multiply)
  2. Tangram: Expand your visual thinking.
  3. Words: puzzle form spelling
  4. Masterpiece: supercharge your drawing.
  5. Newton: creative problem solving

Designed for kids 5-12

Great add on components and games include: Osmo Creative Set with Monster Game, Osmo Pizza, Osmo Coding Jam, Osmo Hot Wheels

From Osmo: 

Bridge the physical and digital

In this digital age, the iPad offers young minds a great platform for learning and playing. But, when kids are interacting only with a touchscreen, they're spending less time engaging with their physical world. Osmo is a technology system that bridges the physical and digital worlds by taking gameplay beyond the screen.

Anyone, anytime, anywhere

Osmo isn't just for kids. Designed for anyone aged 6 and up, this educational toy can be enjoyed by nearly everyone in the family. Siblings can challenge each other in Words, best friends can work together in Newton, or dad and daughter can sweat it out in Tangram. Kids, parents, grandparents, and friends alike can play with Osmo anywhere, anytime. Even at Grandma's house, where there's no WiFi connection.
