Thinkers IntelliBox

[ Review ]

Boon Xin (4) is holding a set of Thinkers’ IntelliBox. This is ThinkersBox‘s subscription-based Intellectual Development Kit, which will be delivered right to your doorsteps every month!

To quote from ThinkersBox :
To succeed in today’s competitive and global environment, we need to give our children the lifelong capabilities to think fast, solve problems, be creative, make good judgements, stay focused and achieve the true potential of their intellectual capabilities.

IntelliBox is a monthly kit filled with mini brain-based games, puzzles, worksheets and reading notes for parents.

We like the quote “Fun toys trigger an inquisitive mind“. The materials are designed and reviewed by a panel of Early Childhood Educators, Psychologists and Professors to ensure the materials are developmentally appropriate for children aged 4 to 7 years old.

Boon Xin just need to follow the pictorial instructions. On page 1, she need to perform three simple tasks, finally splitting the cubes by their colours.

These cubes are excellent for young kids to improve their fingers’ dexterity. Their fine motor skills will be enhanced through constant eye and fingers coordination.

As we progress further, we noticed the cubes now form a multi-dimensional shape.
Boon Xin needs to build the cubes up by referencing the picture (just like jigsaw).

She needs to orientate the cubes in the right direction, and ensure the colours are correct too. This requires a fair bit of concentration.

If in doubt, Boon Xin can always seek her brother’s help. Infact, Boon Yee has problem keeping his hands off the addictive kit :p

It is immensely satisfying for parents to see little minds at work, attempting to solve their tasks by themselves.

With each task completed, Boon Xin’s confidence grows and she attempts the next level. From giraffe to camera to aeroplane, Boon Xin’s imagination is being stretched.

Cube by cube, page by page, Boon Xin could not wait to unravel more quiz.
Thinkers IntelliBox just demonstrated to us that Learning should be FUN !

Recommended for ages 4-7, Thinkers’ monthly IntelliBox will provide materials for 20 days, encouraging parents to engage their child in brain stimulating activities.

Thinkers’ IntelliBox will soft launch at Rise And Shine Expo from 27-29Sep at Suntec Convention Hall 401. Do pop by booth F16 to discover more.

*Thinkers’ IntelliBox is brought to you by ThinkersBox.
Our boy Boon Yee (6) is currently attending ThinkersBox curriculum.

Thinkersbox Cognitive learning

[ Review ]

Boon Yee is a year-end baby, and his slower learning progress is always on our mind.
Since childcare, we always notice the difference between a Q1 and a Q4 baby, especially when it involves learning skills, independence and most importantly, understanding of instructions.

Year end babies’ thought-processes are not as advanced as those born earlier.
This is perfectly fine, but as parents, our anxiety trait kick in again.
When will Yee catch up, will he feel the pressure in Primary 1?

Both Mummy and Daddy wants Boon Yee to have a memorable childhood, and we do not want to force him to do anything he does not want.

We have blog about how ThinkersBox evaluate and coach kids to “Learn-to-think and think-to-learn“. Thanks to ThinkersBox’s sponsorship, Boon Yee (6 years old) has been attending their class since Jan.

Have we seen any improvement since Jan?

Mummy is our primary care giver, and she can see the difference in Yee’s attitute.
She used to repeat a sentence or instruction so many times before Yee absorbs, but Yee is more responsive now.

Yi now takes less effort to memorise his spellings.
More remarkably, he is even showing an interest to complete his task !

We are pleasantly surprised by Yee’s new zest for Learning .
He looks forward to his class every week.

Let Daddy show you what goes on in Yee’s classroom

Each child receives a personalised workbook with modules to help improve their cognitive skills.

To build vocabulary, pictures are provided to help children link the words to the concepts they represent

Shapes and Games to encourage the kids to ask quesions.

Kids get to exercise their visual analysis and try to piece the “jigsaw” together. This is not as straightforward for kids.

Kids learn how to draw straight lines first. As the lines get finer, it is now difficult to maintain a straight line. This will help kids to trace their alphabets characters and control their pencil grip.

Computer game time, except there is a timer. Kids need to scan, analyse and determine which objects or shapes appear in the earlier slide.

Concept of position “Up, Below, Over, Between” etc. The concept will change when we select a new object (perspective). This helps the child to build connection and relational abilities.

ThinkersBox offer modules for kids from 5 to 12 years old, do click for their training modules. Through a series of questions, ThinkersBox’s Cognitive Profile Test will tell us more about our kids’ underlying skill sets. Click for more assessment details.
