...like where you connect the dots by ascending numbers to form a picture?


well I hated it. Requires absolutely NO creativity at all. And besides, I could already count up to 1000 if I wished, all I had to do was memorize 0-9, then add digits to the left logically.

those games suck. I would never give my kid one.

I ****ing loved those things. They didn't help with math though. It was like a surprise though because you never knew what the picture was going to be. It could have been a dog or a picture of goatse, you didn't know until you connected those ****ing dots.

I remember playhouse disney used to have these online. I'd draw Bear in the big blue house and PB&J otter.

Sounds like someone wasn't very good at a simple childhood game. Maybe you should just stick to the game where you stick the shape into their respective hole. One of those was how my dad explained sex for the first time

of course you're free to do or not do that, as you see fit.

1 - some kids do enjoy seeing the picture evolve.
2 - some kids do benefit from learning to make relatively straight pencil stroke, ending at the dots.
3 - they're inexpensive.
4 - they're only useful for a short time in the child's learning experience.
5 - no great loss whether they use them or not.

1 - a reduction in creativity. Some kids do like drawing their own pictures, like me. And, considering they do it out of curioisity, well, there are millions of connect the dot pictures in the world. Curious on finding out what they are?
2 - face it, everybody can do them, everybody who can count and has the necessary motor skills. And, must I add, it is much better motor excercise learning how to write letters. Writing words and letters, requiring a complex motion of curves (adding that it has to be done consistently and under the standards of legibility) does more wonders for motor skills that straight lines from "dot to dot".
3- yes they are, but so is flipping coins
4 - Yes, they are. I got tired of them easily enough.
5 - waste of time

and anybody could do them. I experience no great satisfaction from doing them. I wouldn't look at one of those puzzles 10 years ago and say, "my, that's a grand picture." I only kept doing them because relatives would say, "wow he's so good at that," and "mommy would be proud."

in short, I think it is a pitifully mindless excercise. I pity children that do enjoy them.

Well, yeah it is easy to say that in retrospection that it seemed like a waste of time but so does a lot of things kids do. You are saying you could count logically at around age 5 kids most of the time don't make connection of counting up the further left you go. Are you telling me if your child enjoyed something you wouldn't allow him to do it because you deem it a waste of time? You sir need to learn alot about child psychology before you become a parent the whole "it made mommy proud" factor actually plays hugely into who you will become.

Latest study shows that video games are actually good for kids.
They improve their problem solving abilities and social skills too (to an extent).
So the kids are learning quite a fair bit while playing video games.

They're good for you so keep playing!!!

I loved them! But I always missed important numbers so the bunny or whatever would get it's ear cut off.
