Award-winning STEAM toy brand Osmo launches their fifth title in the Math Wizard Series, Fantastic Food Truck. The hands on content helps build first and second grade math skills through magical, adventure-driven games set in a fantasy world, empowering kids to exercise creativity and imagination.
Fantastic Food Truck focuses on teaching kids geometry through cooking using different shapes. Players become chefs who customize dishes using several available kitchen appliances, while unique customers appear in various stages across Spellbarow Port, each with different food preferences and a variety of dish requests–from pizza to sushi, sandwiches, pastries and more!
Osmo also shares new data which shows this beloved series has inspired kids to solve more than 10 million math problems, where their most popular playtime takes place after school from 3:00 to 4:00 pm daily and average weekly playtime lasts 84 minutes. The data also shows and that 85% of parents said that playing Osmo Math Wizard games has helped children improve in their school work.
“We’re so excited to introduce the newest Math Wizard title, making the series even more valuable. To teach spatial reasoning and geometric thinking, we found that shapes naturally occur in foods and cooking,” said Margot Herrman,VP of Marketing at Osmo. “We ran with the food truck concept, which also lets kids be silly with crazy food combinations. It’s a winning recipe that turns learning into delicious after-school fun!”
Osmo’s Math Wizard series is intended for kids 6-8 years (grades 1-2), and perfect for after-school and remote learning at home. Extremely comprehensive and curriculum-based in its focus on math, the first two titles cover the foundations of addition and subtraction and introduce students to measurement standards, while the third and fourth titles lay the foundations for multiplication and division, adding more than two numbers, understanding how equations are formed and addition and subtraction fluency; and the fifth title focuses on teaching geometry. Families can start a child’s education by purchasing any title within the series.
The two games contained within are:
- Food Truck – where kids learn to cook using geometric shapes.
- Carnival Crew – kids pack boxes with various shapes and are challenged to fit all of the shapes and sizes into the box. Carnival Crew is Osmo’s first digital-only game, which allows kids to play while on the road without using game pieces, making it extremely convenient for families to travel with this game.
In both games, kids will learn to:
- Recognize and draw shapes
- Compose two-dimensional shapes
- Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes
Fantastic Food Truck features two games and the box contains: 1 Playmat, 1 Food Truck Manual and 58 Geometric tiles.
