Brain Games for Kids

A great work out for the brain, these brain games for kids! This will get them thinking..

Fun to play and a great stimulation for the logic thinking skills, the problem solving skills and the spatial/visual understanding of a problem.


Puzzle games are a great gift for smart kids. Most of these games are one-player games, but it is easy to make them into a relay by the use of a timer, or let them solve the puzzle as a team.

Smartgames is a new producer of brain games for kids. They are located in Belgium and they make high quality puzzle games for children and adults.

Best Children Games is proud to introduce you to these “secret” brain games. A great find and not on everyone’s shelf (yet).


These games are for sale on Amazon, but are hard to find. They are imported from Europe and quite new here in America. We believe that these games have the potential to become a big hit in America, since they are creative puzzle games with simple rules. A few pieces to keep it simple, yet challenging enough to entertain for hours.

Their games have an original concept, good looking, nice themes and are made of high quality wood or plastic. And the games play very well.
