Review by Mama Jenn

Timberdoodle BambinoLUK

What homeschool mama doesn’t love a FUN, educational learning manipulative that allows your child to work independently and check their own work?!?!?!? That is why I immediately responded to Timberdoodle’s offer to review BambinoLUK! We received the Starter Pack (which includes the controller, one workbook, a parent/teacher guide, and skills chart).

And, if that weren’t enough, we also received and two additional workbook sets,Critical Thinking 1 (which includes 3 workbooks with 396 illustrations & 198 exercises) and Visual Perception 2 (which includes 2 workbooks with 264 illustrations & 132 exercises)!

It is hard to believe it, but this awesome thinking skills manipulative helps develop and reinforce so many early developmental skills including:

  • visual perception
  • concentration & memory skills
  • critical thinking
  • fine motor skills
  • hand-eye coordination
  • everyday knowledge

What’s more, my kids LOVE it and so do I! Check out my 3 year olds working hard to match the butterflies…

…and how excited he was to “check their work” and get it right!

So, you are probably wondering how it works. Well, I must admit that I did have to read the instructions and watch the video. Since I tend to be rather wordy, I will spare you my instructions and just let you watch the video too! 😉

Don’t worry, once you see how it works, it is actually VERY easy…and innovative! I had to explain it a few times to the 3 year olds, but my 5 year olds caught on very quickly! Check out the video below showing how it works!

The video explains the BambinoLUK very well. However, the only thing that I would add is that when you pick up the first tile (the house) to reveal the “question,” if needed, you can use the example provided along the left side of the workbook. It can be helpful for some of the more challenging exercises. (Notice in the photo to the left where there are dotted lines from the blue circle down to the red circle.)

Since the BambinoLUK is geared toward children ages 3-5, I kind of expected all my boys to enjoy it!

However, I was not expecting my 7 year old daughter to be interested in the BambinoLUK as well! I was thrilled to see that you can also design your own exercises, which I TOTALLY plan to do! That way I can make more challenging exercises for her!!!

n all honesty, I was really surprised when I saw the workbooks. I really didn’t know what to expect as far as the difficulty level, but I can TOTALLY see how they help to improve visual perception, critical thinking, and concentration! I was REALLY impressed! Plus, the illustrations are very colorful and bright and the controller is very durable!

Since the kids can work independently AND check their own work, the BambinoLUK is a wonderful addition to our homeschool! It is great to add to the kids’ workbags or to “occupy” the 3 year olds so I can teach the older kids!

The kids enjoy using it and don’t realize that they are improving important developmental thinking skills! They just think it’s fun!

Needless to say, we all LOVE our BambinoLUK! The only problem I see is having only one controller (for 5 kids to share). So, I have a feeling that another controller (from the Starter Pack) may be under the Christmas tree this year!!!!

Be sure to check out Timberdoodle’s Thinking Skills section for more great learning games, puzzles, and manipulatives! While you’re there, be sure to sign up for their free catalog for homeschoolers. You can also find Timberdoodle on Facebook and on the Doodle Blog!
