miniLUK Visual Perception Pack 1
To be used with miniLUK Controller, miniLUK Visual Perception Pack 1 includes:
Visual perception provides the basic foundation for learning to read, to write, and to do math. These two workbooks cover a broad range of visual perception skills: visual coordination, differentiation, discrimination, observation in detail, identifying alphabets and patterns, and basic mathematical skills.
There are twenty-eight puzzles with a total of 336 challenging exercises in this two-workbook set!
Disclaimer... for instance, page 23 of this Visual Discrimination Games uses little devils as an illustration. Some families will prefer to skip this page or alter the illustrations with a permanent marker. You'll find that the educational value of the set far outweighs the odd illustrations on a page or two.
More About the LUK Learning System:
miniLUK Brain Training
The miniLUK Brain Training series is similar to the bambinoLUK but is designed for an older child. Its controller board has twelve tiles in a high-quality plastic case with a transparent lid. These tiles are numbered from "1" to "12" and the activities are much more challenging. When children finish each exercise, they can check to see if the unique symmetric pattern on the back of the controller matches the one on the page.
Thinking Skills for Ages 6-8
The miniLUK Brain Training collections include workbook sets covering memorization, concentration, visual perception, logical thinking, linguistic skills, and basic arithmetic. For ages six to eight; produced by a secular company so some of the pages may not be suitable for your children.
The miniLUK Advanced Brain Challenger features complex brain challenges in a variety of workbooks. This series focuses on visual perception ability, higher-order thinking skills, and spatial relationships. All exercises begin easy but steadily climb from basic to more advanced and grueling, which is just what this age group is looking for.
Please note: The miniLUK Starter Pack is required but not included in this set.

review by Spark and Wonder
”This is really, really good... It is like a bit of extra OT in the home setting that is independent for the child.”Watch the Video Review
I grew up in the Netherlands, and MiniLUK (Mini Loco in Dutch), is a staple in Dutch primary schools. I have many fond memories of working with this system. This controller set is what you invest in once, and from there, the possibilities are endless! Workbooks for every subject you can think off... It feels more like a game to the child, and because they are making a pattern with their answer tiles, they are able to selfcheck their work! It fosters independence and confidence. The tiles are sturdy and solid plastic, scratch resistant and will last a very long time. I can't recommend this system enough, and Bambino for the younger ones.
Great starter books!
I like these. They are not all girly so boys can do it too.
I just ordered the curriculum package for first grade, and I have to say that my son loves the miniLUK items the best. As a mom and homeschooler, I love that he gets so excited to learn. These make him think, but he's having so much fun he doesn't even realize it! :) Thanks for offering such a wonderful product!
My little 5yo girl says this makes her brain works a lot. Find this effective but challenging program great for young children.
