About this app

"Kudos for putting together an academic-research background with an imaginative, playful presentation to try to help kids build a solid early math foundation.” - Common Sense Media

Help your preschooler develop early math skills with this science-backed game! Fuzzy Numbers provides a fairy-tale setting for children to practice foundational early math skills.

Your child will love exploring Princess Poodle’s castle, Prince Frog’s beanstalk, Witch Cat’s potion school, and Pirate Whale’s treasure cove. Each scene is designed to help your child exercise his or her intuitive sense of quantity, or “number sense”.

Research shows that children with a stronger number sense tend to perform better on real math tests (Halberda et al., 2008). Four and five year old children who played digital number sense games demonstrated better math performance (on tests of counting, number identification, addition, etc.) compared to control groups, when tested right after a brief practice (Wang et al., 2016) or after several weeks of practice (Park et al., 2016). Fuzzy Numbers is adaptive and continually challenges your child’s number sense. Children from ages 3 to 5 enjoy playing Fuzzy Numbers, a reimagined version of our first number sense game, More 4 Monkey.

Cognitive ToyBox is committed to developing science-backed games to support the early learning and cognitive development of children. Please contact us at hello@cognitivetoybox.com with any questions or feedback.

Great, but much much too short. My 4 year old granddaughter blew through the game in 20 minutes and asked where the rest of the game was! There are only 6 or so "puzzles" in the entire game!
