Add Up Math Skills This Summer With SimplyFun

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - Jun 16, 2011) - For many families, summer is a time when work gives way to play, when the hectic schedules of jobs and school relax enough to encourage leisure activities. For educational board game company SimplyFun®, play is a year-round proposition and the summer time gives new opportunities for kids to discover the power of play.

"Play teaches our children life's important lessons," said Patty Pearcy, SimplyFun president. "Children shouldn't be left behind during the restful summer months when the basic educational skills are often forgotten. Play gives children the opportunity to discover the world around them."

This year, SimplyFun has been launching high quality original games and products which uphold the company's mission of learning and connecting through play. The games, which are designed for people of all ages, are easy to learn and fun to play.

SimplyFun understands the importance of preparing young children for school and helping kids excel in the classroom and families stay connected in the comfort of their own home. Just in time for summer, SimplyFun has released a brand new math board game to help elementary-aged students refresh important math skills during their months away from the classroom:

Sumology® is a game of equations that helps children do more advanced math using all four of the basic operators. Players must place their tiles in crossword fashion either horizontally or vertically to create valid equations. Each equation is worth the sum of all the digits used. Play alternates until the pool of tiles is exhausted. Sumology is perfect for children ages 8 and up.

All SimplyFun games and puzzles can be played and purchased through its nationwide sales force of independent consultants, at a SimplyFun home party or through a consultant's web site by calling 1-877-557-7767 or visiting
