I am thinking about getting DS2 a Maths Shark or a Maths Whiz for Christmas. (He loves playing with numbers)
Wondered if anyone had seen any of these and knew if they are worth the money. Or can you recommend an alternative?
Thanks in advance.

How about a Sudoku book for about 1?

How old is your ds now Zoot? Llewy is 5 1/2 but is totally obsessed with Jedi Maths on his leapster.

I also print out loads of extra maths worksheets for him from the internet, that he enjoys doing.

The jedi maths game looks good too mamzie. Will hunt out the leapster and see if it still works.
