Math Facts Learned in about an Hour Dec 01, 2000
I picked up this toy for a friend's daughter's birthday. My 9 year old son picked it up out of the cart and started playing with it. He liked it so much he climb in the cart, sat down, and played with it the whole hour we were shopping. He learned all of his eights multiplication facts. I was amazed. I am a teacher, and I think this is a great and fun way to supplement learning math facts.

Who knew math could be so much F-U-N?! Nov 15, 2000
L-O-V-E this product! I just purchased a Turbo Twist Math for my niece's 7th birthday. From the moment she got it out of the package it was an instant birthday party hit. What a kick to watch her, with friends gathered around, all vying for a twist of the dial to solve addition, subtraction, and multiplication problems. Amazing! The fun musical beat and announcer makes this toy a blast. And kids can't put it down...the tactile experience of twisting and bopping makes Turbo Twist irresistible. I'm so impressed that a device designed to teach mathematics--of all subjects--could turn out to be so much fun. Bravo!

AWESOME Jun 19, 2003

I'm impressed!!. My 8 year old son went through the entire second grade struggling with basic math facts. Teacher recommended flash cards over the summer but he hates them. Had the Turbo Twist in his hands for less than a week and he is already up to level 12 and computing three digit addition. He started off using the numbers on the twist as a slide guide but is now doing it from memory. If your kid loves Nintendo and Game Boys, this TOY will keep them interested. Love the headphone jack. I'll repeat...AWESOME!!

Disappointed! Oct 30, 2000
I recently bought this product because of all the extra benefits it said it had. If you buy a leap link to go with it you can customize it to meet your childs needs. You can also keep track of how well your child is doing. You can download new games and activites. Well guess what, NONE of these capablities are ready yet. I e-mailed their technical support and they said their web site won't be ready to do all of this until maybe mid-november. So basically they are selling a product that is not ready yet. Isn't that called false advertising? If you are thinking about buying this product WAIT! It does have great potential. I just think they should of waited to put it on the market until their product was ready to do ALL it said it could do!!

Turbo Twist Math vs. Twist and Shout Math Jan 10, 2002
One of the previous reviews complained "The skill level can only be adjusted for the Learn It mode". It sound much like the 'Twist and Shout Math products' instead of the Turbo Twist Math! (both made by Lead Frog) I had originally received the Twist and Shout product at Christmas for my children and found them completely a waste of money. However, the Turbo Twist Math is absolutely FANTASTIC!! With the ability to upgrade at your child's level on-line is a fantastic feature. I would highly recommend this 'TOY' as my children have not put them down since Christmas. We have the Spelling and Math. They can take them both in the car, use their headphones and learn, learn, learn. They think it's fun. If in deed you have the Twist and Shout, I HIGHLY recommend exchanging it for the Turbo Twist Math. I think you will be surprised with the difference in these two toys!
