Engadget giveaway: Win a Genius Kit and iPad Air 2 courtesy of Osmo!

Where tablet games meet the physical world.

Kids have been known to hog the iPad, so you may as well load one up with fun and educational games to offset all that Rastamouse binge watching. Osmo is an interactive game system that can challenge and entertain young minds beyond just swiping and tapping. The company's Genius Kit includes an entire suite of games that teach through storytelling and utilize a special mirror to turn the table into a playing field. Hands-on games like Tangram, Numbers and Words focus on the basics of spacial skills, math and writing, while Newton and Masterpiece provide interactive drawing tools. Osmo has given us an iPad Air 2 and a Genius Kit for one lucky Engadget reader this week, so they can give the gift of fun and learning to the next generation -- or, you know, just play with it. All you need to do is head to the Rafflecopter widget below for up to three chances at winning this unique blend of physical and digital fun.

Winner: Congratulations to Nick B. of Waseca, MN!
