Osmo is an award-winning game system that will change the way your child interacts with the iPad by opening it up to hands-on play. This groundbreaking system fosters social intelligence and creative thinking by opening up the iPad to the endless possibilities of physical play. I can’t begin to tell you how much I love this system. The instructions for set-up are so well done, my 8 year old granddaughter was almost better at it then I was! She asks to play every day which is a win for me. She is not only having fun, but is also learning at the same time! I love that she is also able to get it all set up and ready to learn on her own. There was only one thing I didn’t like about the system. The need to take my granddaughter’s iPad out of it’s protective case in order to use the system and have her iPad fit into the base. I know it’s necessary but I prefer she be able to keep her iPad protected. After all, little hands have a tendency to drop electronics!
