There are also surprise bonuses to discover in the boxes. Five difficulty levels suitable for children aged 5 to 9. You may want to have a piece of paper and a pencil at the ready to help you work out the harder questions! Excellent for developing strong mental maths skills.

I have a 3 year old and 6 year old and they love playing Miner Birds together or apart. It's helped them become more comfortable with maths and eager to learn more.

Brilliant !

My 5 year old loves this app. She is extremely reluctant to do any maths but she loves this game and views it as a real treat to play. Engaging, fun and effective.
