My son was super excited about the latest item we reviewed from Timberdoodle’s review team. It’s the much talked about Laser Maze JR.
Laser Maze Jr. is a single-player science logic game with 40 challenges from easy to super hard and is geared toward ages 6 and older.
The concept of the Laser Maze Jr. is fairly simple. There are cards with challenges on them and you need try and use the mirrors to make the laser go to the rocket. If you are successful, the rocket lights up to show a win, as you can see in the photo below. If you get stuck, the answers are on the back of the cards and we have found that there is oftentimes more ways than one to solve the problem.
Steps to play:
- Select a Challenge Card
- Insert a Card into the Game Grid and set up the tokens to match the challenge
- Add satellite mirrors to guide the laser’s path
- Position the mirrors so the rockets light up
- You win!
My son is 9 years old and he whizzed through most of the challenges, only needing to sneak a peek at the answers on some of the harder ones. He has loved playing with it and is now asking for us to get the more advanced Laser Maze.
You can order the Laser Maze Jr. from Timberdoodle for $27.99. It’s also a part of Timberdoodle’s 2nd Grade Curriculum Kit. Timberdoodle is a great resource to help your children play and have fun while also learning.
