Kids Logic puzzles: Brain-training the next generation

As I promised last Thursday in my article about Sharpbrains.com and braintraining getting a hotter trend in the west I would like to follow-up on what I said about how sometimes things just tend to “sort out on their own” and what this post from Sharpbrains was just perfect for me for, so her it is, just in case you are not a regular visitor to Conceptis Free Weekly Puzzles section or one of the company’s publishers across the world:

The most dominant player in the international puzzle publishing market has announced a new line of logic puzzle families this Friday. Branded as “Kids Logic” the new set of intellectual activity games is designed to have positive impact on children’s cognitive skills, logic deduction, concentration and eye-to-hand coordination. At this point Kids Logic puzzles are only available to Conceptis publishers. Yet, the official Kids Logic publisher section is open for visitors and offers this zip with a few free samples. Other than this we’ll just have to wait for some publishers to get on with it and make some publications available.

Proper disclosure: this new product line was co-developed by my wife, Nitsan, and I have the pleasure and honor to be serving as Conceptis marketing officer. Thus, this post can hardly be taken as an objective journalism item 🙂 This said, and as you may already know, I am a (new…) father myself and as such find the new line of children brain training products to be very exciting. I really just can’t wait until Carmel can try them! So, even though I am far from being objective here, I do think that if you have any children you should check this out. Following is the official press release from Conceptis. Please feel free to leave your comments here if you have any.

With eleven Picture and Number logic puzzle families for teens and adults, Conceptis announced Kids Logic – a third line of puzzle families targeted at children ages 5 to 12. Conceptis’ Kids Logic consists of different fun to solve puzzles and activities which at the same time develop cognitive skills, logic deduction, concentration and eye-to-hand coordination.

Conceptis’ Kids Logic consists mostly of new puzzle inventions never seen before as well as some popular puzzle concepts improved by Conceptis. The first release includes five puzzle families: Paint-by-Blocks, Paint-by-Symmetry, Paint-by-Dots, and the kids versions of Maze-a-Pix and Dot-a-Pix. More Kids Logic families such as Paint-by-Arrows, Paint-by-Areas and Paint-by-Symbols will be released in 2008.

One of the last unsaturated markets

As the recent brain-training boom migrated from Japan to the West, many scientific papers emerged proving something we always knew: exercising our brains systematically is as important as exercising our bodies and brain training games and puzzles can improve mental capabilities and health in people of any age.

Yet, Kids logic puzzles is one of the last unsaturated markets for publishers, especially when it comes to original high-quality content. With the new Kids Logic product line from Conceptis, publishers can now break into this new market and gain advantage over competition. At this point Kids Logic puzzles are only available to Conceptis publishers through the Download Center.

“We are confident parents familiar with the quality of Conceptis’ puzzles will be glad to buy them for their children” says Dave Green president of Conceptis. “Logic puzzles for children is a neglected market and the content you see in all publications is either low quality or recycled. Our aim is to bring new concepts and innovative puzzle ideas using the ten years experience we have gained in this market.”

“Our new Kids Logic product line was first exposed in the Bologna children’s book fair with excellent responses.” says Nitsan Galanti, Conceptis Graphic Designer and developer of the Kids Logic product line. “We received similar responses when Kids Logic was introduced in Conceptis forums, as well as requests for more puzzles. We know we have a winner here.”
