Frankie's Shows Shapes in Real Objects!

Comments about Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game™:
This is a simple game with easy to follow direction. It is good for those PreK children whose attention spans are short. The game pieces are both colorful and durable. Using Frankie to pick up the food tiles and move them around builds muscles required for fine motor skills. I especially liked that the tiles showed children how to see shapes in real world objects. I am an Educational Insights dealer in Altoona, PA. I took this game to game nights at two elementary schools where it was well received. I had several sad children when they found out that I did not have it stocked to sell. I hope to have it in my store soon so that I can turn those frowns upside down!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Learning made fun at its best

My kids love playing games so when they saw this they couldn't wait to get it open and try it out. They know most of their shapes so it was a lot of fun for them and they were able to play through a game pretty fast - it kept them busy and they didn't get frustrated. My kids are 3 & 5 and they have a great time with it. Not only fun but educational and a great way too help kids keep up on their shapes and other math skills.

Well Made, Fun Game
By Amy D
About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children
There is just something so fun about children's games that incorporate food. My kids recently received this game and they have been loving every ounce of it! We have been playing as a family which has allowed us to bond and connect. This point of this game is to be the first to deliver a five course meal. While playing kids learn more about math and shapes. They also learn that sometimes things don't always go as planned. We loved playing this because the little Frankie Clip piece is fun for kids to squeeze. I found the game to be fun, engaging and very sturdy and well made.
Fun game for young kids!

Cute game with quality pieces that will withstand play. This game is easy to set up and directions are clear and straightforward. Players needs to spin and select a food item that matches the shape they land on.The first player to find all of the items on their placemat card wins. Players can also lose a turn, steal a dish from another player or return a dish depending on what they spin. My son squealed with delight whenever he landed on the "That looks delicious!" space allowing him to steal a piece from his sister. The game requires kids to recognize shapes and use their fine motor skills to pick up pieces using Frankie the Cat. All of the game pieces are made of sturdy cardboard or plastic and the colors are bright and vibrant. This game is fun to play and would make a great gift.

Great fun game for learning shapes and beginning strategies. I like the fact that even though it is for little ones but there is a built in strategy element, not commonly found in toys/games for young children. Highly recommended for families with young kids.
A must buy!

This is a great game for our 5 year old son. It was so easy for him to understand right from the start. It is a great game to develop fine motor skills, which is one of my son's weaknesses. I love having learning games in our collection and the Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco game is just that. This game teaches math, shapes and fine motor skills. This game is great to play before bedtime or while waiting for dinner to be done. It is a fast paced game, so it keeps my son's short attention span so you can play over and over again. My son loves when he spins the Squirrel and gets to steal a plate, he just thinks it is the funniest thing. I love to hear him giggle. That is the best part of this game, to see the happiness and excitement in my son. That makes this worth every penny.
Great Game for Preschoolers

I received Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game free for review. All opinions are my own.Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game is a simple beginner math game. It's main focus is recognizing basic shapes in food items. The players sort food onto their board and place it onto the matching shape. Whoever matches all the shapes on their board first wins. My kids are 4 and 6 and had a lot of fun with this game, however it was extremely easy for them. They have already mastered these shapes and can easily recognize them, so for them it was a basic review and then a race to see who could fill their board first. One thing we loved is that this is a fast game. The kids made it through multiple rounds in less than 15 minutes, which means it keeps their attention longer.All of the pieces of the game are sturdy which I appreciate. This game was built to last the younger kids. The spinner is easy to spin and doesn't catch, which makes it easier for my youngest to use. There is also a a Frankie Squeezer which is like a cat shaped tweezers for the kids to use to pick up their game pieces. I liked this because it was another chance for the kids to practice some hand eye coordination and manipulation of a tool to do what they need it to do. Overall I would recommend this game to anyone looking for a great preschool game. It's okay for Kindergarten to First Grade age, but it starts to become extremely easy for them at that point.
Fun with Learning

My grandchildren (2 of the 3) really had a great time playing Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco. There fave use to be Shelby's Snack Shack. I think this game is taking over. The 4 and 6 year old really concentrate on the game and have fun with it. The 4 year old is reinforcing her shapes, as she squeels when she steals food from her brother. It is also good eye hand coordination. He just likes to play because he is interested. They play for about 2 games before totally tuning out and grabbing for other things etc They like playing more if I am playing also like most games.
Keeps my girls entertained
By Happy Mothering
I received Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game for review purposes. My girls are 4 and 6, and they love board games. And I love them because they keep them busy and help them learn at the same time. This is a really fun game that is age appropriate for both girls. It was a great addition to their game cabinet.
