This study was conducted to explore fun learning with numeracy using the Fun-Learning Kid's tool in the teaching of mathematics for the pre-school students in Kelantan. This study used the playing approach. Pre-school students from two schools have been used as a sample of the study, namely, private schools and government school. The data was collected using the test questions after the pre-school students were exposed to the concept of multiplication using the Fun-Learning Kid's tool. The findings show that pre-school students have the ability to solve simple multiplication problems regardless the type of schools they go to. This demonstrated that the playing and learning method using the Fun-Tastic Kid’s affects the preschool students’ cognitive development and also their counting skill.
