Monkey Multiplier – making multiplication fun

There are not many things that can make multiplication fun, after all it is pretty boring. I am currently working with Great Gizmos to supplement our home schooling with some of their fantastic educational products and I could not resist this Monkey Multiplier.

By moving the monkeys legs you can do any of the one to twelve times tables (up to 12 times). Although not actually helping the girls to remember their times tables it does help them grass the concept of a multiplication question and both girls are very proud when I ask them a multiplication question and they can give me the answer.

This is robust and easy to use and has definitely made multiplication fun!
