  • "My daughter loves the IQ Fun Pack.  It's easy to navigate.  Sophia starts the game on her own, chooses the level she wants to play and just keeps going.  I love this part best because Sophia gets to think on her own and feel independent when playing.  She likes the fact that she controls the game and can pick her own level of difficulty, going back and forth from "Easy" to "Hard" questions without any fear of making mistakes, even though the questions do get harder.  She really enjoys being challenged by those tough questions.  She laughs at the characters, loves their silly names, faces and voices, and adores the fireworks that go off when she gets a question right.  She can play this game for hours, no matter what mood she is in.  Often she will pick the "Hard" questions just to show those silly characters that she is smart enough to get the tricky questions right!  Two of my friends recently purchased the game as well and their kids are loving it, too." ~ Nadia, Mom in Manhattan
  • "I highly recommend IQ Fun Pack to any parent considering having their child tested for kindergarten placement. Our 4-year-old loved playing IQ Fun Pack! By playing IQ Fun Pack she got to practice the types of questions that were asked on her placement test. She got practice using her words to give descriptive answers. She loved using the pattern tiles and the blocks to build designs. During the test she was able to focus on the content of the questions rather than struggling to understand what the questioner meant. For instance, prior to using IQ Fun Pack she had never worked her way through an analogy; her test result showed that this is now one of her strongest skills! Based on her test result she is eligible for gifted classes. We are confident that she would not have been able to demonstrate her true IQ in the testing environment without the practice in IQ Fun Pack.

As a parent, you want the best for your child, and that includes access to the best education available.

The unfortunate reality of today’s education system is this: One test may change your child’s entire future.

It may seem arbitrary and it may seem unfair, but that’s how the system often works. A single test, administered over the course of a few hours, can determine whether your child gets access to the abundant resources that a gifted and talented program provides, unlocking a whole new world of potential—or that test can pigeonhole your son or daughter as a child who belongs in the “slow” group.

What if your daughter is nervous on test day and doesn’t do as well as you know she can? Or what if your son simply has a bad day? As a concerned parent, what can you do to equip your child with the skills and the confidence to score to his or her highest potential—and get on track for a bright future?

Think about it this way: If you had an interview for a job at a company you held in high regard, one that could very well determine the future course of your career, would you go into that interview cold? Of course not. So why do we expect our children to do the same—and excel?

That’s Where IQ Fun Pack Comes In

This complete test prep system is designed to get your children ages 3-8 ready to score their highest on gifted and talented tests and school entrance exams. Plus, the skills they’ll learn in IQ Fun Pack also set a strong foundation for future school success.

Here’s the best part: The IQ Fun Pack looks and feels like a game. Kids even think it’s a game—but really, it’s a complete skill-building system for test readiness. IQ Fun Pack includes a two-sided board game with a simple online interface, over 11,000 learning challenges to prep for 15+ different tests, flashcards and more! IQ Fun Pack makes test prep painless for parents and fun for kids. It’s where education meets fun.

IQ Fun Pack also offers offline, hands-on physical play options in case you want to limit your child’s online exposure.

When you invest in IQ Fun Pack, you’ll open doors to new possibilities, including prestigious gifted programs, a leading option for a high-quality education. IQ Fun Pack can also prepare your children for private school entrance exams, giving your family access to top-choice schools.

Ultimately, a high test score means more options for you and your family. IQ Fun Pack can help your child get there—while having fun!

“The game actually saved us money! We’d been taking our son to an expensive tutor, which we now don’t need because of your website and game. We’ve had great success playing IQ Fun Pack with him — his improvement after playing the game for just 2 weeks is incredible! Thank you!”

~ Tina, NYC Mom

Discover How IQ Fun Pack Works

IQ Fun Pack is the secret to taking 3-to 8-year-olds beyond ABCs and 123s to gifted-style thinking, which 1) prepares them for any placement tests they may encounter as well as 2) primes them for future school success. Plus, IQ Fun Pack is centered around a fun, entertaining concept that kids love.

“We received the game yesterday. My almost 4-year-old CRIED when we put it away and begged to play more! Amazing. We have done so many workbooks with her (Brain Quest, World Almanac, Kumon, etc.) and she has never reacted to anything like this. THANK YOU. It is so much fun to watch her love to learn.”

~ Rupe, Chicago Mom

IQ Fun Pack develops the seven abilities every child must have to ace an intelligence test:

  1. Language
  2. Knowledge
  3. Memory
  4. Math
  5. Visual-Spatial
  6. Thinking
  7. Fine-Motor Skills

In addition to these seven abilities, IQ Fun Pack will also build your child’s pre-reading, listening and focusing skills. These abilities will help him score well on any intelligence or placement test. They’ll also form the foundation for excelling in school from kindergarten throughout his entire school career.

By developing these seven abilities and additional skills, IQ Fun Pack will help fast-track your child to a place where she instinctively knows what to do and how to answer the types of questions she’ll be asked during a real test.

It is important to understand that the questions in the IQ Fun Pack system are all original. They are NOT the same questions your child will see on any actual assessment. However, because they do cover all of the same kinds of abilities, skills, and information children need for testing and school readiness, they prepare a child to do well on any exam.

“Thank you for from the bottom of my heart and soul for this game! Playing this regularly made higher order thinking a part of our lives. Our children now create, evaluate, analyze and apply information without me even asking them to!”

~ Danielle, California Mother

Plus, since all of the exercises within IQ Fun Pack are designed to feel like a game, your kids will actually want to play.

As the story of IQ Fun Pack unfolds, you and your child will discover that space babies have traveled across the galaxies to study life on Earth. They are very excited about their trip and have so many questions about Earth children. To help them learn, your child has been selected for a play date with a space baby. As your child winds his way down the path, his space baby friend will ask about all kinds of things. Show him just how just how much Earth children know by answering all his questions. Your child will have a fun day with your space baby, then get him back to his rocket ship in time to return to his planet for dinner.

~ Gong, Los Angeles Mom

“My children enjoy the concept of helping their alien babies reach home before dinner. My 4- and 5-year-old analyze and discuss their problem solving strategies in sentences now! The game is worth the investment for your children’s language development alone. The questions will engage your child with various topics, develop critical thinking skills, and scaffold oral language skills.”

~ Brenda, L.A. Mom

~ Nadia, Mom in Manhattan

“I wrote a while back asking for advice for looming tests (I had read your book and my mom sent us the IQ Fun Pack game), and you responded so quickly with reassurance we were on the right track. So I wanted to let you know our son was offered a spot at Hunter next year and I do believe you should truly share in the congratulations. Without your book, lovely game and accessibility I don’t know that I would have been able to relax into this whole process and let him do his thing. Thank you for letting me breathe and have fun with my child through this crazy New York City process.”

~ SD, NYC Mom

My daughter increased her IQ score by 17 points! My 5-year-old daughter was tested in October 2010 and scored below the 130 requirement for the gifted program in the public school system. My husband and I felt that her true IQ was higher, and that we had not prepared her for the test. It seemed to us that she missed some questions because she did not understand what the questioner meant. We purchased the IQ Fun Pack game and played it with her a few times a week. Playing the game was a special treat for her; she loved the focused attention and the challenge of the game. She was tested again in February 2011 (this time with a different test since she was now 6-years-old). After just 4 months her score had increased by 17 points! Before IQ Fun Pack she was in the 92nd percentile, after using IQ Fun Pack she tested in the 99th percentile! Her tested IQ now surpasses the 130 requirement. We are so pleased that we purchased IQ Fun Pack. I highly recommend it to anyone considering having their child tested for school placement.”

~ Melinda W., Port Orange, Florida

“We have LOVED the IQ Fun Pack! More importantly my 6-year-old son, who is not easily entertained asks to play every day!! We are so in awe over this and so thankful we got the game! I had never done many of these types of questions with him before. At first they took him off guard, but now he is answering like a pro!”

~ Melissa, NYC Mom

I’m a huge fan – I tell everyone in earshot to buy your book, your game and join TestingMom.com. Such a great resource! My own school uses many of your ideas and they work. They just work! The kids are getting into gifted and talented programs and it is easy. They love to play your IQ Fun Pack game, they love to work on your website, they like to do fun things. They have no clue that they are learning concepts and thinking through problems!!

~ Suzanne, Director of a Preschool

“I had bought the IQ Fun Pack with my son (3yr old) in mind and wanted to use it to prepare him for testing. When we started playing the game my daughter (5yrs old) did extremely well with all levels, to my surprise even the RED level questions. My kids wanted to play the game every day. Seeing her do so well at the game, prompted us to get her tested and apply for a charter school for highly gifted kids (Metrolina Regional Scholars Academy, Charlotte, NC) at the very last minute. We all played for may be 3-4 weeks and she took the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale for Intelligence (WPPSI). She got a composite score of 135 which qualifies her for admissions to the school. Can’t thank you enough for helping me identify me daughters talent.”

~ Grace, Charlotte, NC

“We almost did not purchase IQ Fun Pack due to the price. We were shopping for IQ games at Barnes & Noble (around $30 for a 3-D building game and for logic games) and then started to look online and found your site. I was quite taken aback by the price. My husband convinced me to buy it. He said, ‘Just think of what we pay a month for preschool.’ Based on Tati’s results, and the things I overheard at the test site, we knew that she had not been exposed to all the things she needed to know for the test. My husband said that the game paid for itself when our younger daughter, Sasha, took the test and passed well above the gifted threshold. I was embarrassed to admit the amount of money we spent on the game until one friend pointed out that they were in the process of moving to a new house in a better school district to enable their daughter to attend the gifted program which they think is the best in the area. He said, “We are spending $300,000 to make sure our daughter gets a better education! Why would we think poorly of you for spending $297 for the same reason?”

~ Kristen, Florida Mom

“Karen, we just got done meeting with the comprehensive evaluation team at our son’s school which consisted of his teachers, principal, school psychologist, social worker, nurse and gifted teacher. They went over our son’s scores on the IQ test. They used the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fourth Edition. I am so excited to report that he scored a 143 which they stated placed him in the 99.8 percentile! Needless to say…he qualified for gifted! He is now eligible to transfer to a special gifted city wide school. Now that he has been placed into the gifted program…they stated he will never again be re-tested and he will receive these services until 12th grade! The possibilities for him are endless! Thank you for your game. It helped to prepare our son for one of the most important tests of his life!

~ Florintina, Manhattan Mom

“We spoke last year when I was so stressed and worried about my daughter, M’s, kindergarten. I wanted to tell you that she was in the 99th percentile in both G&T testing and the ERB. You should know that we relied almost exclusively on IQ Fun Pack to prepare. The only other thing we did aside from using your game was to work with a 12 page workbook with sequential questions. That’s it. Nice game you invented!”

~ Haley, NYC Mom

“I wanted to thank you very much for creating this game. I played it with my daughter over the past 12 months (and she loves it) and we managed to get her test scores increased by 9 points — which qualified her for our first choice school! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

~ Ramji, Florida Mom

    • Knowledge and information: How to understand the information that is on standard tests and that children are expected know by the time they start kindergarten – lower and upper case letters, numbers, shapes, colors, fruits, vegetables, shapes, farm animals, zoo animals, and much more.

    • Comprehension: How to demonstrate through language the basic comprehension of the world that a young child should have.

  • And much, much more! IQ Fun Pack covers lots of ground—in fun ways for your child!

By working on these skills, IQ Fun Pack both prepares your child to score high on their exams and it also forms the foundation for school success from Kindergarten throughout their careers.

Plus, IQ Fun Pack does all this while your kids play what feels like a game to them.

What if my child doesn’t have any of these skills yet?

Don’t worry! That’s what IQ Fun Pack is for. It will your child build up to these skills.

The questions and activities your child will work with using the IQ Fun Pack system come in 3 levels – EASY, MEDIUM and HARD. EASY questions are for kids age 3. MEDIUM questions are for 4-year-olds. HARD questions are for children ages 5-7. This is just a guideline, however. Some younger kids are ahead in certain skills, while older kids still need to build up particular abilities.

The first time you play, you might want to start with MEDIUM questions. If these are too easy, try HARD the next time. You will probably find that your child will use a mixture of levels. He may be able to handle HARD vocabulary-type questions, but will need to work with EASY math questions. You’ll get a feel for the “right” level for different skills and activities as you play the game a few times. Playing the game will quickly show you your child’s strengths and weaknesses. The important point is that your child can (and will) work his way from super easy questions to the very hardest ones.

My preschool director told us not to prepare, that the tester would know and our child would be disqualified!

Don’t worry! With IQ Fun Pack, children are never exposed to actual questions or activities from any test. IQ Fun Pack is just like any home-based educational activity a parent would normally do with her child. Our learning material is similar to what you might find with BrainQuest™ cards, Mighty Mind games, lessons at Kumon or educational games and workbooks you’ll find at your local bookstore.

IQ Fun Pack focuses on activities and questions that are similar to a particular test your child may take. By using IQ Fun Pack, your child will build familiarity with the types of questions and the skills needed to answer them correctly. However, the questions used in IQ Fun Pack are different in look, feel and content from materials an actual tester will use.

For example, after playing IQ Fun Pack, your child won’t be thrown off by when asked to solve a figural matrix or serial reasoning question for the very first time in a testing situation where results really matter. Instead, he will have mastered the underlying skills needed to handle that type of question or task through IQ Fun Pack, and he will be able to show what he knows when it really counts.

Is everything online? Or are their offline pieces as well?

IQ Fun Pack offers a fun, animated interface that you can run from your tablet or computer. It also offers offline, hands-on play on physical cards for parents who want to limit their child’s online exposure.

At TestingMom.com, we always recommend that parents use both our website and the game so that your kids don’t get bored. We’ve designed both to be so much fun that your kids will think they’re playing games with you or getting away with extra computer time.

What tests will IQ Fun Pack help my child prepare for?

Am I really the best person to help my child prep? Or should I get a tutor?

IQ Fun Pack will offer you guidance as you work with your child to help you maximize your effectiveness and offer you quality time that you both enjoy.

For example, when your child is answering a particular type of question or doing an activity for the first time, it may be difficult for her. If you want to reword a question or ask a different, easier question, go ahead. Offer clues, help her think or do whatever you feel she needs to correctly respond to the question or accomplish the activity. Praise her for trying and working hard. Tell her you don’t expect her to know the answer to everything right away. Tell her she’s doing great!

Let’s say the question is, “If you had three cookies and ate one, how many would you have left?” If your child says “four,” here’s what not to say:

  • Are you sure?
  • Is that really what you think?
  • No, that’s wrong. Try again.

A child usually gives his best answer the first time out. If he misses, you should offer a bit of help. Say something like…

  • No, that’s not it. Why don’t you show me 3 fingers and we’ll count it out…
  • That’s close, but let’s make it better. I’m going to run to the kitchen and get 3 cookies. You can eat one and we’ll figure out how many are left.
  • (Assuming you’re playing with another child) “Brooke seems to know the answer. Brooke, why don’t you give Michael a hint?” When little children are playing, they love to give each other hints when one has the answer and the other doesn’t.

You can also use the “fill in the blank technique.” Let’s say the question is, “What does a cow say?” If your child answers “quack,” you might say, “That’s close, but we can do better. A duck says ‘quack quack’ but a cow says ‘moo.’ Let’s try again. A cow says what?”

Or, just offer a hint: “No, that’s not it. What a cow says rhymes with ‘Boo.’ What do you think a cow says that rhymes with ‘Boo?’”

Or, start the answer and let your child finish it. “No, that’s not it. A cow says, ‘Mmm.’ What does a cow say?”

The goal of playing this is for your child to learn and have fun and feel like a winner. As long as your daughter has practiced, learned to how to think through and respond to the types of questions she’ll get when tested, she will do her very best when it matters.

Here are some of the many comments we have received from parents who purchased the original IQ Fun Park and used it with their kids.

  • “I highly recommend IQ Fun Pack to any parent considering having their child tested for kindergarten placement. Our 4-year-old loved playing IQ Fun Pack!

Thank you Karen Quinn and thank you IQ Fun Pack!” ~ Gong, Los Angeles Mom
  • “I have to say, we LOVE playing “space babies.” As someone with no early childhood education background, it is very useful to me because it helps bring to life some of the great aspects of your book (which I really think is wonderful and which a number of NYC moms and teachers have mentioned to me they are reading and love) and teaches me a bit about how to ask my child questions in a way to help them learn well and draw important connections between things.” ~ Janet, Atlanta, Georgia
  • “I have found the game to be really great and my child loves it. Thank you for making it, and thank you for the book, which is really a very accessible and useful read for any parent.” ~ Kit W., NYC Mom
  • “‘A’ loved playing it – asked to play it just about every day, and I do think it helped him, particularly in verbal areas. Our favorite part was the questions involving the blocks (tapping in the order I tap) and the pattern squares (replicating patterns on the cards). ‘A’ became very good at this, which is probably solely attributable to the game. It’s nice that it’s colorful – attractive to young children. The space babies theme was much loved by my little guy.” Yael, Mom from Toronto
  • “The game was fun for my child and that it gave me an idea what kinds of questions to expect on the various testing instruments – prior to that, I was entirely clueless.” ~ Bekah, New Jersey
  • “‘J’ really enjoyed the game and did not see it as prep. Most times, she asked to play the game and it wasn’t me pushing it on her. I liked that the game covered all four tests and the cards were clearly labeled by test and skill. ‘J’ loved earning the stickers and we even reordered stickers from Oriental Trading because we ran out. I liked the two different types of dice included and definitely liked the space babies. We played so often that I supplemented some of your harder email questions for the cards. Not that we even approached going through all the greens and reds you included. Because I had limited time on the weekends, I also did the home assessment questions from TestingMom.com in the context of the game. Those questions might already be in the cards but I thought the assessments were very helpful.” ~ Radu, Houston Dad
  • “My daughter likes to start her day with IQ Fun Pack and then comes to it many times a day. We are also done with half of the green cards. I felt the pattern tiles and the block patterns were particularly good. The sequencing cards are fun to do as well. With the pictorial board, you have conveyed a lot of information to the child and this is also a learning place because she gets to practice what animals or things she can find at the farm, zoo, beach, circus, etc. The cards which ask for a story from the child are exciting. My daughter likes to take those aside, draws a story herself and then she talks about it then. I think you have done a great job of making this a delightful adventure!” ~ Martyna, San Antonio Mother
  • “The game got me engaging in more enlightening conversations with my kids. I noticed their strengths and weaknesses with comfort level with certain questions.” ~ Zhang, San Francisco, CA
  • “I had bought the IQ Fun Pack with my son (3yr old) in mind and wanted to use it to prepare him for testing. When we started playing the game my daughter (5yrs old) did extremly well with all levels, to my surprise even the RED level questions. My kids wanted to play the game every day. Seeing her do so well at the game, prompted us to get her tested and apply for a Charter school for highly gifted kids (Metrolina Regional Scholars Academy, Charlotte, NC) at the very last minute. We all played for may be 3-4 weeks and she took the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale for Intelligence (WPPSI). She got a composite score of 135 which qualifies her for admissions to the school. Can’t thank you enough for helping me identify me daughters talent.” ~ Grace, Charlotte, NC
  • “We almost did not purchase IQ Fun Pack due to the price. We were shopping for IQ games at Barnes & Noble (around $30 for a 3-D building game and for logic games) and then started to look online and found your site. I was quite taken aback by the price. My husband convinced me to buy it. He said, ‘Just think of what we pay a month for preschool.’ Based on Tati’s results, and the things I overheard at the test site, we knew that she had not been exposed to all the things she needed to know for the test. My husband said that the game paid for itself when our younger daughter, Sasha, took the test and passed well above the gifted threshold. I was embarrassed to admit the amount of money we spent on the game until one friend pointed out that they were in the process of moving to a new house in a better school district to enable their daughter to attend the gifted program which they think is the best in the area. He said, “We are spending $300,000 to make sure our daughter gets a better education! Why would we think poorly of you for spending $297 for the same reason?” ~ Kristen, Florida Mom
  • “We loved that this game has all the pieces you need in one place presented in a way that is fun for the child and for the adult.” ~ Elia, New York City Mom
  • “The game is fun! I include game play as part of homework time, my daughters look forward to the one-on-one attention and the game itself. The game has helped my daughters practice using their words and vocabulary. They are much better story tellers now! They tell me several sentences to describe the answer instead of the one word answers I would get prior to playing the game.” ~ Daniella, Miami Mother
  • “The game is very versatile. I sometimes pick a couple of questions to discuss during breakfast or dinner. The conversation that it sparks is always good. We love the space baby figurines (although I know my girls would love a pink or purple one!), they are very cute. The pattern tiles are excellent (a few more questions that include them would be great; my girls love the pattern tiles!). The game board itself is beautiful and very well made. My girls love the motivational stickers; they keep them in a special place. No other stickers have this honor.” ~ Nancy, Mom in Boston
  • “Exposure to the types of questions asked is key. If the child does not understand what is being asked, how can they score well? The game gives us something constructive and fun to do to prepare for the test.” ~ Jonathan, Manhattan Dad
  • “This product was much more useful to us than any other books or “manuals” that we had access to. Our child actually wanted to play and use it.” ~ Raphy, NYC Mom
  • “The questions are well designed. The fact it was a game worked really well. The alternative is workbooks and who wants to put a child through pages and pages of workbooks on their holiday. The game board is very creative and of good design. I liked the “quality” of all the components. Well done!” ~ Sheila, Philadelphia Mother
  • “Our son giggled and had fun with secret passwords. It was a great experience to watch him process those comments. The experience with the questions resulted in reaching for other resources. E.g., we got out the Mother Goose rhymes and the Dr. Seuss at night.” ~ Mark, L.A. Dad
  • “This was a fun tool that we could work on education together. The game was one among a few things attempted based on your emails and recommendations. I know this game, book, emails (whole process) was all a part of that and father and son are closer now because of the preparation time and effort.” ~ Jeremy, NYC Dad
  • “As a result of the playing the game, I feel that my child has started to think analytically. It is making her brain think critically. I like the concept of space babies and the board itself gives a lot of helpful info. The tiles are well made and very good. The questions are easy to read, colorful and engrossing. The game helps parents and children to THINK, gives us an idea on what the exam will be like, all in play. I have already recommended the game to my relatives in India, who do not have the exam in India at all, who will be buying this to sharpen their child’s mind. I love the fact that Karen is so approachable, she is friendly and helpful. I am impressed that she is firmly standing behind her product and this gives me lot of confidence. She has been curious to know how it worked out for my child, giving me suggestions unique for my child and this is very comforting.” ~ Charul, Chicago Mom
  • “We got the game on Friday and my kids loved it. We spent the good part of Saturday and Sunday morning enjoying the game. I have a 1st grader and a 4 year old that will miss the cut off by 3 weeks. Both of them playing has worked really well. My oldest does a really good job of elaborating with her answers and setting a good example for my youngest. They love the space babies. Thanks for putting together such a great learning tool.” ~ Maria, Atlanta, GA
  • “I found the game to be a great asset to my tutoring practice. It has giving my practice more growth and flexibility. I can now take on more clients. Instead of one-on-one or two-on-one, I can tutor up to four children at a time. It’s wonderful because we are having fun while learning. I have found that children get bored with workbooks and from experience I have found that workbooks are not always the most effective method for every child. You have to switch it up and find the tools that spark the young brain cells. The IQ Fun Pack is a game that does this. The children get so excited just looking at the box and many proactively ask to play during a tutoring session. Now if I want to use a workbook or another tool, I use the game as an incentive. It was worth the investment and it was great to have a special tool that most tutors didn’t have. The parents are amazed.” ~ Jeri, L.A. Mother and Teacher
  • “The game helped me to identify strengths and weaknesses of the child’s mind and build those skills quickly by pulling the appropriate level questions in the game. I love that it came with manipulatives like pattern cards and picture cards.” ~ Chaita, Cleveland Mom
  • “I loved that this was a game. I was able to get through way more questions as a game than as a test or workbook. It was painless!” ~ Anne, Manhattan Mom
  • “Loved being able to sort out the Olsat and Bracken questions for our testing purposes (though my son loves doing the puzzle pictures). The best part is that it is a game and that it is not so dreary to get through questions with him playing (rather than doing questions from a book). My son loved the stickers at the end and blasting off and the silly passwords for the bridge. I really liked that there were different levels of questions so that you could work up to the harder ones.” ~ April, Mom from NYC
  • “We purchased IQ Fun Pack in September. I received my daughter’s results from her test. She scored over 99% on the Classical Testing. Also she was only a couple of points away from being placed under the Gifted listing. She is admitted to a school ranked in the top 10 in Chicago. Thanks for sharing your knowledge in your book and Fun Kit. ~ Victoria, Chicago Mom
  • “I just want to say thanks for everything. My son did GREAT! His Full Scale score was 99.7! He got in to St. John’s School, one of only two nationally ranked schools in Texas and the only one in Houston! They had over 900 applicants, for 42 spots, and we are not legacy or alumni so this was pretty incredible! I am so proud of him.”~ Larry, Texas Dad
  • “Thanks for your game – it was really helpful for our family.” ~ Taylor, Connecticut Mom
  • Karen, we just got done meeting with the comprehensive evaluation team at our son’s school which consisted of his teachers, principal, school psychologist, social worker, nurse and gifted teacher. They went over our son’s scores on the IQ test. They used the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fourth Edition. I am so excited to report that he scored a 143 which they stated placed him in the 99.8 percentile! Needless to say…he qualified for gifted! He is now elligible to transfer to a special gifted city wide school. Now that he has been placed into the gifted program…they stated he will never again be re-tested and he will receive theses services until 12th grade! The possibilities for him are endless! Thank you for for your game. It helped to prepare our son for one of the most important tests of his life! ~ Florintina, Manhattan Mom
  • “Karen, There’s no doubt your game helped my daughters score well. They both scored in the 99th percentile. Thank you!” ~ Jane, LA Mom
  • “Thank you for the amazing game and daily test prep questions. Each of my twins scored over 99%. I am spreading the word about IQ Fun Pack and TestingMom.com.”~ Yvonne, San Francisco
  • “I am a nanny, and I have been playing with my employer’s children this IQ for fun game. As the kids and I play this everyday for at least half an hour, there’s no doubt that they are ahead intellectually for their age (the kids are 35 months old and 20 months old). They love it without knowing that it is preparing them to become smart kids!” ~ Ruby, Manhattan Nanny
  • “We spoke last year when I was so stressed and worried about my daughter, M’s, kindergarten. I wanted to tell you that she was in the 99th percentile in both G&T testing and the ERB. You should know that we relied almost exclusively on IQ Fun Pack to prepare. The only other thing we did aside from using your game was to work with a 12 page workbook with sequential questions. That’s it. Nice game you invented!” ~ Haley, NYC Mom
  • “My friend, E, ADORES YOU! Her son scored in the 99%!”~ Smita, New Jersey Mom
  • “I wanted to thank you very much for creating this game. I played it with my daughter over the past 12 months (and she loves it) and we managed to get her test scores increased by 9 points — which qualified her for our first choice school! Thank you, thank you, thank you!” ~ Ramji, Florida Mom
  • “I love your book, site and game. It is excellent and has changed my life or really, my daughter’s life, in terms of how I’ll be educating her going forward.”~ Consuelo, Australia Mom
  • “I just wanted to tell you that both my 5 year old and my 3 year old beg to play the IQ Fun Pack game. I’m so happy we went ahead and got it. What a fun way for them to prepare without really feeling pressured. Now that I know so much more about the testing process, I feel much more comfortable gearing up for the next kids.”~ Jin, Manhattan Mom
  • “I am so impressed with my children’s stamina in playing the game. I think it’s great. They sat for an hour today with it. I don’t ask them to play. They ask me. The box is actually torn from how many times it has been opened and closed.” ~ Amy, Florida Mom
  • “My son loves playing IQ Fun Pack. He especially loves the Space Babies and he likes it when I ask the questions in correct Space Baby voices! By playing the game with him, we realized actually he knows more than we thought when we ask him to explain concepts (i.e. why do we wear hats?). We take the principles of the game and play them in the car. We name a bunch of related items and ask him, how are all these similar? The game really makes learning fun. It’s a great way to spend time with your child.”~ Frank, Manhattan Dad
  • “We love the flexibility of the game to adapt to each child’s abilities and interested. This includes having your encouragement in the game’s directions to keep it fun and make whatever changes seem right in the moment. Though my kids actually enjoy doing workbooks, this game offers the same type of learning with the option to get really creative. My kids make up their own rules, which makes them love the game even more. (Ex: after each roll, the player must imitate the sound of whichever animal (pictured on the board) is closest to their Space Baby.” ~ Brenda, Seattle Mom
  • “We absolutely LOVE your game (and I’ll explain why below) but I first want to say that your book has been transformative for my entire family. It has permanently changed the way I interact with both of my children (not just the “test prep” kid), in such a positive way. While it’s true that, prior to reading your book, I was already the type of mom who communicated frequently with her kids, looked for a variety of educational opportunities in day-to-day life, etc. I now feel like I have a new tool set to draw on to keep the conversation interesting. And by that I mean interesting for me, because there are only so many ways you can quiz a four-year-old about his environment. Your games and activities are awesome and some of your specific suggestions (like the dialogic reading concept) are fantastic. My husband and I felt strongly that – even though our son *is* taking the private school admissions test – we didn’t want to obsessively prep him for the test, which is such a short term goal. We wanted a way to engage him (and his younger brother) in deeper, more meaningful ways – to truly prepare him for school and life, not just for one test. ~ Robin, Manhattan Mom
  • “My son had turned 3 in May and I bought the IQ FUN PACK for him as a special present. He immediately wanted to play with it and was very curious. I do not think he is ready for the questions but we still look at them. We place the space babies on our fingers and we roll the dice and I ask him questions. When I read the questions I have the babies do the talking. He really is not ready, but I want him to get familiar with everything. We count the dice and move the number of spaces and he is able to recognize the shapes and colors. I like that there are so many colors and things for him to touch and understand…it really holds his attention. This game has helped my son focus and to sit still for a longer period of time then I thought he would. This game has brought father and son closer because he will only play with me, at least for now. When I come home from work he wants me to play the game as he says, “Come on Daddy, let’s go play at the park.” Parents should get the game because it is secret learning in a fun way.” ~ Michael, NYC Dad
  • “We loved that this game has all the pieces you need in one place presented in a way that is fun for the child and for the adult.” ~ Kelly, Phoenix Mom
  • “We received the IQ Fun Pack Game very quickly. When we played it for the first time on Saturday, my 7 year old son loved it and was very into it. Usually we are doing homework and last week we were going over the KBIT2 test questions, and so his comment at the end of the game was… ‘That was fun, we just played games today’ – With a big smile on his face. Thank you!” ~ Deb, Georgia Mom
  • “You run a very good business. I attended your workshops in NYC. Your information is extremely helpful and your methods just make sense to me. I’ve read your book – I’ve owned it for a year and re-read it this week. It’s really good and answers all the questions that need to be answered. We’ve had Space Babies for a year and have loved it and used it as a board game in regular rotation. Kudos to you for creating such a fun game.” ~ Jen, Manhattan Mom

BELOW: Grandmother, Kathleen Smith, talks about her granddaughter Carly’s reaction to IQ Fun Park:

  • “The game made my child much better at logical thinking. He is now able to concentrate better on tasks. It was totally worth the money.” ~ Sam, San Francisco Father
  • “To other parents, I’d say buy the game. I have a teaching degree and I’m a child development specialist. I could have made a similar game but I purchased this one instead. By the time I bought the materials and put energy into putting together something as comprehensive, I’d have spend more money to have gotten a similar product. Having the game already made allowed me to start playing with my child immediately. That’s why it’s worth it for our family.” ~ Regina, New Jersey Mom
  • “IQ Fun Pack has helped my 3-yr-old listen more closely. She really listens to what’s being asked. Her ability to focus has really improved.” ~ Judy, New York City Mom
  • “Your IQ fun Pack has been part of my child’s daily activities since we purchased it. It has helped him build his confidence in dealing with everyday things and knowledge. After playing with his “space babies game”, he has been able to answer all the IQ books and games (Brain quest, etc.) with no problems. We have been telling our co-parents about the game and after trying it out with their kids, they are committed to buy their own game. My son, at 4 years old, can now answer the questions better than his 1st grade friend.” ~ Susan, Texas Mom
  • “My 4-yr-old absolutely loves the game. He was hooked right away by the idea of having to explain things to Space Babies. The “silly sentences” (or whatever they are called) are his favorite. Every time we do them, it results in a 5-minute giggle break. What I love about the game is the variety of questions, and the sheer number of questions. We have other educational games or books (like BrainQuest, which I believe you recommend), but there are so few questions we get through them really quickly. I love the different skills levels for questions (and in our version of the game we do both the Easy, Medium and Hard Medium side – Easy first to test a skill and then Medium and Hard to reinforce). My son loves that every question isn’t “just” a question- sometimes there is drawing involved, or sorting, or puzzles. Very creative, and interesting/ fun for both parents and kids.” ~ Desmond, San Diego
  • “My son likes the space babies characters, and this got his attention initially as associating the questions with something fun. The variety of questions was good so that I could select the ones that are harder for him in order to concentrate on those areas. What would you say to other parents who are considering purchasing IQ Fun Pack? A fun way to get kids interested in activities that foster test related skills in a light hearted way. Nice variety of questions and a lot of them!” ~ Taryn, Virginia Mom
  • “My daughter is 2 years and 9 months old and loves the game. She has modified the game and now asks me questions as well. It is a great opportunity to add learning into our daily routine. Now when she asks me what something is and I tell her she will ask, “Is there anything else you want to share.” I would tell other parents that the information that is typically presented in workbook form is included in the game. Workbooks can become tedious to the parent and the child, but the game is constantly evolving. If you buy the game while the child is young, you can continue to use it after admission to the school of your choice is gained for educational purposes. The three levels of questions let the game grow with your child.” ~ Max, Connecticut
  • “IQ Fun Pack is a GREAT fun way to learn these tests formats! My children didn’t like to sit down with a book in front of them to answer questions BUT with the game they can do it for a long time! It has the same content in a very fun format.” ~ Vicki, Las Vegas Mom
  • “I wanted to mention… my grandmother really enjoys playing this game and stretching her mental capabilities, thinking outside the box. A great chance for great grandmother to interact with her great grandchildren.” ~ Rachel, Washington, D.C. mother
  • “My children enjoy the concept of helping their alien babies reach home before dinner. My 4- and 5-year-old analyze and discuss their problem solving strategies in sentences now! The game is definitely worth the investment alone just for your child or children’s language development. The game cards will engage your child with various topics, develop critical thinking skills, and scaffold oral language skills.” ~ Sara, Texas Mom
  • “I actually wanted to write you this morning, because I finished the Testing For Kindergarten book last night and I was in tears reading your Acknowledgements. My husband looks over at me and grumbled, “oh no, are you reading some sad Oprah book again??!” lol. Thank you for all this great information. I wish I had fallen across this info a year ago, but it’s never too late. I always believed that I wanted the best for my children, and now I realize I was hardly doing much to achieve that for them. I am completely inspired and motivated to give them the edge they need. Who knew it could be so simple?!! Like you said in the book, it almost doesn’t matter as long as I’m touching on a little bit of all the 7 abilities in a fun way. This morning, we sorted their fruit loops before breakfast…and then we tried to figure out what rhymed with “loops”…of course, my son yells, “poops!” 🙂 giggles and laughs followed!” ~ Maggie, LA Mom
  • “My son has integrated the board game into his life! He started asking his Bert & Ernie dolls to say “silly sentences” like “MUD IS HARD! THAT IS SILLY BECAUSE MUD IS SOFT & SQUISHY” ! That is awesome!” ~ Namsoo, San Antonio
  • When my son turned 4, I started thinking about where to send my son to school. My neighborhood school is decent, but I really wanted the very best public school for my son (and of course it always helps to have options!). I started researching the schools and settled my sights on a Classical school, but in Chicago, all of the children in the Classical programs have to test in. I knew my child was a proficient reader and good at math, but I really wanted some help figuring out how to get him comfortable with the subjects that were on the test without having me or him go crazy. I looked on Amazon, and that’s when I happened to run across Karen’s book, ‘Testing for Kindergarten’. A book on testing? I thought it was going to be a chore to read it, but to my delight, it was an easy read (interesting and fun, even) and really helped me prepare my son for the test (I love the suggestion on what to tell your children so that you don’t have to refer to it a “test”). The strategies are easy to employ and are definitely a great way to help you child without memorization or “drilling” him or her on facts. The other really really helpful aspect of the book and game is that they stress habits and games that you should be practicing with your child anyway – whether or not you want to test your child into school. The happy ending to my story is that my child got >99.9% on both the math and reading sections of the Chicago Public Schools test and got into my first choice school. I really believe that Karen’s book (and later the game) played an instrumental part in helping him prepare for the test.  Thank you, Karen! Now on to my second child… 🙂 ~ Polina, Chicago Mom
  • “Karen, I exchanged emails with you and purchased IQ Fun Pack in 2010 for my two older daughters. If you remember, my oldest brought her score from 121 to 138, and my middle daughter scored a 135 with only a few weeks of playing the game. My youngest is now almost 4 and a half, and we have been playing Space Babies for a few months together. She scored a 140 today on her IQ test for Kindergarten placement in our school’s gifted program! She maxed-out two of the sub-test categories. The psychologist was excited to give us the great news. I am sure she maximized her potential thanks to IQ Fun Pack!” ~ Ashley, Miami Mom
  • “IQ Fun Pack is my daughter’s favorite game ever. Even after her test has passed, she still wants to play it with me. ~ Ida, Georgia Mom
  • “The game is so innovative that we all enjoy it together. My son has no clue that he is doing test prep. Honestly, test prep is one thing, but beyond that there is so much value in just playing the game and answering the questions. Many times we think that the children of his age would really know some xyz thing it turns out they know a lot more than that. It makes us feel happy to see him grow cognitively by playing the game :)” ~ Prachi, Seattle Mom
  • “Hi Karen, it’s Pat Jones from Far Rockaway in NY. We were introduced about a year or 2 ago. I hope you remember me. Well, just a note to let you know that your book and the game you shared with my daycare back then is has been the best thing ever happen for my group. I have implemented lots of techniques from the book and have seen the development and progress in my students. As a matter of fact on Friday November 8, I am hosting a PTA for parents of students scheduled to be tested for G&T in 2014 and I will be introducing my parents to your book and game. Thanks you for being an inspiration and an advocate for children. I look forward to continuing this progressive journey.”
    – Pat Jones, Head of a Nursery School in Far Rockaway, NY
  • “I really love these flash cards. They are brightly colored with silly characters that made my little Sophie laugh when she played with them. Each card teaches a few concepts/vocabulary that all young children need to master – words like first, second, third/top, middle, bottom/above, below, between/inside, outside/on, off/high, low/up, down, sideways/over, under/beginning, end, and much more. There are questions you can ask your child on the back of each card, so they’ll keep you and your little one busy for a long time. The cards are portable and will be great to use when traveling this summer. When I went through them with Sophie, I let her keep all the cards she knew – I kept the others. In the end, she had more than I did, so she won! Yay! She loves to win. I highly recommend these cards.”
    – Reading Fool
  • “I’m a former teacher and now homeschool mom. I’ve seen a bunch of curriculum and I’ve bought a bunch. These are worth it. Truly.”
    – Mindy Brooke Franklin
  • “TestingMom is really trying hard to make teaching our precious ones as easy as possible. I’ve used their website and it works great at achieving those objectives for 3.5 year olds and up. I highly recommend that route for the older age group ready for their first big test. For the tougher scenarios, you really need to go back to basics with flash cards and tangible objects. These cards help a bit on their first try at teaching kids basic concepts. If they’re ever coming up with a second edition, some more details that delineate the age group for the type of question on the back of the flash card might help parents focus on what is necessary. Overall, it’s far better than going at it alone since parents are not the test takers. My first child was easy to set up and practice a little bit daily, but my second one is a disaster trying to even get some of the basics such as sitting still and pointing right. In any event, listen to TestingMom’s advice and work on it as closely as possible and don’t deviate from it to succeed. My advice is to spend a lot of time and be creative to make this exercise fun. We were one of the very few very lucky ones to have a child pass the test with an almost perfect score and got selected by a lottery to attend one of the few CityWide schools, so we have a foggy idea how much work is needed.”
    – Amazon Customer
  • “Great way to identify skills we have mastered and those we still need to work on. The cards are easy to use and can be used over and over again.”
