Train your Brain!!

For STYLISH LIFE, we all need to be growing everyday. Ideally, Active Learning is the best process, but it may be difficult for children. Though they need their parents help, I think we should not force children to study with boring materials.

” Hey, is there any teaching materials which are high-quality & interesting for children? ”

 

Finally, I found the VERY GOOD app!! It’s Think!Think! app developed by Hanamaru Lab (in Japan).

 

We can study basic thinking skill efficiently with this catchy, friendly and easy-to-continue app for FREE.

 

Now let’s play Think!Think!

And news,

 

Download Think!Think! here for free.

 

 

Ages

Officially, Think!Think! is for ages for 5 – 10.

“From 5 years old” means that pre-school children can train fundamentals of mathematical skills. “To 10 years old” means that children may master the basics of volumetric shape until 10. Usually it’s in Junior high school.

Once junior high school students feel negative impressions on studies, it’s very difficult for them to catch up with others. Think!Think! can be good app in studying with fun through various mini-games before children become negative to learning.

 

What is “Hanamaru Lab”?

They are very nice team, making nice teaching materials and mini-games in Think!Think! app day by day.

For comfortable playing

I don’t recommend small display because of operability & bad effects to your eyes.

 

Tablets

We can play Think!Think! with iPhone. But, larger display is recommended for comfortable playing & getting high score. Not only for Think!Think! but also for other creative use, tablets such as iPad are high Cost-Performance.

 

 

And recommended if you also use Kindle app.

 

Stylus

For more comfortable playing, stylus is recommended. Some mini-games are required careful control.
