Publisher Description:

MightyMind is one of the top five essential toys. At first glance, most people think that MightyMind is just a box of shapes and puzzle cards, but don't be fooled! It's an intricate linear program comprised of 30 steps (puzzles) arranged in a numerical sequence that's disguised as a play activity. Kids get glued to it, because it generates a feeling of success and it builds a child's confidence and self-esteem. It originated way back in 1978 based on B.F. Skinner's (the Harvard behaviorist) development of linear programming. Disguised as a toy activity, MightyMind develops the essential critical analytical thinking skills that every child must have for future success. No reading or language is required. Includes 32 colorful proportional design shapes, neatly contained in a sturdy storage tray with a series of 30 numbered programmed puzzles.

Category Description for MightyMind / SuperMind:

This wonderful game builds thinking skills, starting out easy and progressing to harder puzzles so younger kids can develop skills as they go to solve increasingly challenging puzzles. The basic MightyMind game contains a tray with 32 colorful plastic design tiles and 30 sturdy puzzle boards. The puzzles are numbered so you can easily spot their correct order. While the first puzzles consist of spaces to match single shapes to, the puzzles reach a point where they have just an outline, requiring children to experiment with different pieces until they find the correct combination in order to solve the puzzle. Children can work their way through the puzzles without help, all the while building puzzle-working skill and interest. MightyMind has received several awards, among them the Parent's Choice Honor award. A magnetic version of MightyMind is also available, which includes magnetic shapes and is packaged in a tin. Great for the road!

SuperMind is a sequel for children who have successfully completed the MightyMind puzzles. It is available separately (in original or magnetic versions), or you can purchase just the design book, since the design tiles are identical to those in the first set.

Extra Design Tiles are available, 32 colored tiles in each set, so more than one child can play at once. These are also great for use without pattern cards to create freeform designs.

I'm buying this again not for my boys this time, but for their friend's birthday gift. It's a neat game for kids to enjoy.

Mighty!
Wonderful! I had this as a child and loved the challenges it presented. My son now loves it too. It teaches colors, shapes, comparison, problem solving and is truly engaging. A must have toy for childhood.

Mighty Mind is a hit at our house There are 32 plastic shapes in primary colors (They have a nice sturdy feel to them) The child picks out one of the 30 cards Each card has a picture of shapes on it put together in interesting ways � much like tangrams but colorful and with more shapes The child selects the appropriate colored pieces and places them on the shapes to complete the card As the cards get harder (they�re numbered from 1 to 30 easiest to hardest) they show an outline of the overall shape but the child has to figure out which plastic shapes to lay out to complete the card � two triangles might make a square or one square might fill the same spot and so on Some of them get pretty challenging for me too! It�s very helpful for my easily frustrated daughter that the cards start out easy and become progressively more difficult Starting with the easier cards builds her confidence to try harder ones Because the cards are numbered from easiest to hardest I can start my older daughter on the harder cards and even my 2-year-old can begin to do the easier cards The cards teach children in two ways For example card 1 has the child place two semicircles on the card not touching each other Then you can follow the picture cue in the corner to see that when rearranged the two semicircles can be put together in another way to form a circle What�s really cool is that at the end of the play time it�s easy to get kids to clean up the pieces because they fit back into the tray in a fun design That also makes it easy for me to ensure that no pieces are missing We have borrowed the shapes from Mighty Mind to use as manipulatives in our math lessons as well

A fantastic game that helped my children to stop slow down and actually think Oh and they love it My son started to play with it at age 2 but really didn't get into it until 3 years old My 5 year old daughter still loves it and finds it challenging It is also great for encouraging solo time Highly recommended
