Share Article

Mic-O-Mic Americas Inc.'s LONPOS 84T Braintelligent Pyramid Game with its 13,882,213 challenges received a coveted NAPPA HONORS AWARD from the National Parenting Publications Awards. Other impressive NAPPA Awards received by Mic-O-Mic Americas Inc.: in 2006 (LONPOS 101 Pyramid and Rectangle game - NAPPA GOLD AWARD) and in 2007 (LONPOS 303 Pyramid and Rectangle Game - NAPPA GOLD AWARD).

The prestigious NAPPA Children's Products awards competition is a program sponsored by Dominion Parenting Media and promoted in association with parenting publishers across the United States.

Details of the LONPOS 84T Braintelligent Pyramid Game are as follows:

Unlike other LONPOS games this is table top size: it has 3 sides each approx. 10 inches long and is 5 inches tall when completed. Each pentomino ranges in size from 1.5 to just over 3 inches long.

This game has an incredible 13,882,213 three sided Pyramids that can be built using the provided 17 different colored game pieces (pentominoes). 432 problems are preset in the included manual, with 108 having completion hints.

By means of 432 pre-set brain-tormenters, both young children and retired rocket scientists will find their brains put to the test. Composed of seventeen different rugged pentominoes in seventeen colors, the components themselves are a delight to work with, each piece sliding snugly into place. And the manual, with instructions in several languages, while not written in perfectly grammatical English and, perhaps, not always politically correct, is pretty straightforward!

More than just a series of challenges, this is an entertaining look at company pride. Mr. Lonpos, the creator of Lonpos 101, 303, and 4D is a real advocate for this puzzle game, believing it has the ability to do everything from improving brain development in an unborn child, if the mother-to-be faithfully plays it, to preventing senile dementia. Some of the comments have credibility, while others you'll need to take with a grain of salt. What is trustworthy is that solving the 432 pre-set different puzzles will exercise cognitive brain functions. Solving 3-D problems promotes right-brain development, and solving puzzles in different shapes promotes left-brain development. Plus, working difficult puzzle problems helps develop logical thinking. Playing this game will help your family develop concentration, endurance, and perseverance - each vital for academic success.
