Read this Kumon Review
I bought this Reader Rabbit game for my kids and they absolutely loved it as a way of helping to reinforce math. It is very well done with long adventures of many parts for the children to go on. It practises all sorts of math concepts and introduces new ones adjusting difficulty level according to how accurately the child answers the problems. There is a certain amount of time taken up with game play, but the flipside of this is that it kept their interest for far longer than a typical session of math would and they were learning without really realising.
