Because games are not only a source of time for our children, but also a place to get to know the world they live in and experience what they learn. Play is also an action that supports their physical, mental, social and personal skills and meets their emotional needs. Our age is the age of technology, unfortunately, our children are developing fast, they are growing fast, but they are deprived of games. Therefore, intelligence games are one of the important issues that shape our children's perceptions and evaluations. I sincerely believe that the project will make great contributions to our children's self-knowledge and their skills, memory and attention development.”
