SmartGames launches new pre-school game that doubles as a toy

Published on: 23rd August 2019

Brain Train is set to launch this summer and is suitable for players aged three years and above. 

SmartGames has announced the arrival of its latest mind-boggling pre-school game, Brain Train. This new sorting game involves colourful shape sorting for little railway enthusiasts who can now train their brains. Players aged three and above will be learning on the job as they match the shapes and place them in the right sequence, making sure that the wagons are connected to the steam engine before they can depart. With 48 challenges and fewer hints at every level, the big question is, will this train pull out of the station and make it to the next stop?

Brain Train encourages many cognitive skills, such as flexible thinking, planning, problem solving, visual perception and spatial insight, all essentials for little ones to be developing in the early years and beyond.

The set includes the all-important ‘choo choo’ train with two carriages, nine coloured blocks with different shapes and the challenge booklet. What’s more, the train can be used as a toy once the challenges are complete.

Brand director for Smart Toys and Games, Karen Clarke, commented: “A game that doubles as a toy is always going to be a winner. Designed to develop the mind, but with the added fun factor and a product that will stand the test of time. Steaming onto the shelves this summer, we hope little ones enjoy the journey!”
