My two older children ages 4 and 6 love to play a popular handheld video learning game system but unfortunately it is too complicated for my three year old son who gets frustrated that he does not have a game to play by himself. K-Magic™ is the first interactive learning device that is designed specifically for babies all the way through age 6.
The K-Magic™ interactive kid’s movie and game console features educational cartoons, games, language tools and music in an all- in- one system. Though my children were well past the baby stage, our neighbor tried this out with her 22 month old daughter and they both loved it. This game system has three different levels of challenges and is a perfect starter system for my three year old son, Jacob. He proudly thinks he is a “big boy” like his siblings who play the other gaming system for older children and now he no longer feels excluded.
The K-Magic™ K’s Kids Movie & Game Interactive Console includes learning game cards that feature +280 learning games and the simple, bright animation really encourages active participation in colors, shapes, numbers, sounds and the alphabet. The large buttons, easy game play and “kid friendly” durable cartridges and console make this an excellent game for young children. I love that this system is portable so we take this with us on long trips to keep Jacob busy learning and having fun. When he is not in the mood to play games he can watch 20 built-in five minute educational movies that address Creativity, Education, Emotion and Discipline. All three of my children enjoyed these short features which have kept them quiet and occupied in doctor’s office waiting rooms and restaurants.

- Introduces educational concepts
- Explore creativity
- Express Emotion
- 16 Magic Cards

Overall I am very pleased with the quality and content of the K-Magic™ K’s Kids Movie & Game Interactive Console. I have noticed my youngest son’s self confidence has taken a boost since he has his own educational learning system that he can play and the expression on his face when he completes a new task for the first time is priceless. As a home educator, I appreciate that this is not just a game but it is educational too as it focuses on visual, logics, senses and observations.
