Description from the packaging.

12 sets of puzzles build advanced math thinking skills.

The Zoombinis must escape! Lead them safely from the Bloats' Island prison to a new homeland through perilous puzzles packed with Pizza Trolls, Allergic Cliffs, raging waters, bullying Fleens and more. Puzzles develop data organization and thinking skills vital for understanding advanced math concepts.

The challenge never ends. Zoombiniville will grow and prosper as groups of new inhabitants complete the journey! Each time a band of Zoombinis is led through a puzzle, randomly generated solutions automatically adjust to a player's skill level.

Sharpen set recognition and logical grouping skills while discovering the rule such as "allergic to blue noses and sneakers."

Algebraic Thinking
Balance the "equation" by transforming the features of the Zoombinis on the left and right to make them identical.

Using the Zoombinis' features as coordinates X and Y, place each Zoombini in the proper room at the hotel.

Data Analysis
Build data sorting, comparison and data organization skills by using Zoombinis' features to sort and sequence them on the ferryboat.

Hypothesis Formation
Determine which combination of pizza toppings will satisfy the Pizza Trolls.
