Category Description for MiniLUK System:

This truly unique learning tool has been around for many years. It is designed for learning through play and is flexible for individual learning ability. It's great logic development for younger children. The main part of this program is the controller with 12 numbered tiles. The controller is a hinged, high quality plastic case, red bottom and transparent top, divided into 12 sections which fit the 12 tiles. The Starter Pack includes the controller and tiles, "My First MiniLUK" workbook, a skills chart, and a parent guide to help you use your new system to its fullest potential.

The MiniLUK workbook is placed under the transparent panel of the case; students then place the correct number tile in the proper location. If tiles are placed correctly, children will see the symmetric pattern on the back of the tiles which matches the pattern in the book. There are 12 questions on each exercise page to be completed before the pattern can be checked. Books come in a variety of topics which can be purchased separately, and "My First MiniLUK Workbook," which accompanies the Starter Pack, includes exercises from basic to a more challenging level. The first exercises in this book are 2 sets of 12 pictures of spirals in 6 different colors, with the spiral going in two different directions. Students are then asked to match the spirals from the two different sets, placing the number tile of the matching spiral in the correct tile square. The exercises in this book provide practice in visual perception, concentration, critical thinking, knowledge reinforcement, math, and geometry. Added benefits of using the tiles are strengthening of fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination. Brain Challenger workbooks are for students ages 5-7 and Advance is for ages 6-8 and provides advanced exercises in visual perception ability, general learning, higher thinking skills, and spatial relationships.

I know how much fun this system can be, because we used it at our house 20 years ago. It is still in great shape today, and my twenty-something children still haul it out when they come home. In preparation for writing this description I worked through some of the exercises, and found myself wishing that they made one of these for adults. - Donna

my daughter lost square number 9 in our other kit. Wish you could just purchase the single numbers. No one had this single item except you guys. Google brought me here and since you offer free shipping of $50 I purchase other items I needed.

We keep loosing the pieces. But it's worth buying again. Also, I used this as a kid as well and loved it.

I purchased the complete bundle for my 5 1/2 year old, and within 5 minutes of opening the package he and my 3 1/2 year old son were on the floor solving puzzles together. My younger son was busy going through the books by himself and just pointing at the "matches". I knew I needed a second controller ASAP! SUCH an amazing product. Thinking outside of the box is an invaluable skill!

We've had a miniLUK controller for years, but recently lost some tiles. So we're replacing it, plus an additional controller to bring to homeschool group.

Start with the starter kit
I bought a miniLUK for my 5 yr old grandson because the reviews sounded so good. It was only after it arrived that I realized I had ordered only a controller, but should have ordered a Starter Set.
Back to RR— I love these guys— and I ordered the Starter Set and some extra books. I spent more than I had originally planned, but it all worked out well. My grandson and his 3 yr old sister now each have a controller, and they both love using them. It’s definitely learning, but feels more like a game. Even the 3 yr old is able to work independently, and every time she completes an exercise correctly she does this little happy ta-da. Yes, I’m partial, but I think she’s adorable.
I definitely recommend the miniLUK— just be sure to also buy some books to go with it.

I bought this with several workbooks for my first grader She likes a challenge and is good with puzzles She loves it! She likes to do this activity first thing so start school I don't consider it a core study but it gets her brain moving and helps her work through her other work quickly I like seeing my ten year old engage with her as he finds it a fun activity as well I haven't dug too hard but haven't found a big kid version of this for him (And me too! ) this is something that is non consumable and great for repeated uses I would recommend this for all kids but maybe especially for kids who are reluctant to get started for whatever reason It's fun for them and helps them put their thinking brains on Our family has really enjoyed this product

I remember playing with one of these! What an ingenious toy! The sturdy container has a see-through lid that sits on top of a page in one of the workbooks The tiles are placed number side up on the into the lid on top of the correct answer to the exercise When the child is done he simply folds the bottom of the case up snaps and flips it over There is a satisfaction in seeing the beautiful symmetrical design he created! It is mysterious and enchanting! It reminds me slightly of the type of immediate positive response that a computer game could give The child can see at a glance if they've done problems correctly The instructions are also usually self-explanatory by looking at the example given in the book or else they take minimal input from an adult until the child catches on It is quite expensive to buy the controller and all the books so I held off buying one for my own children for quite a while When I finally decided I wanted to go for it I started with one set of books and will add to it later so that helped with cost Despite the cost though it is a great value! The controller and the workbooks are sturdy and will last and last! The workbook pages are glossy and don't crumple easily It's a great quiet alone activity for visual and tactile learners that entertains for many years with the addition of more challenging books Hooray for products that make thinking so fun and rewarding that kids don't even realize what a workout their brain is getting!
