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.

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

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.
Fun way to learn shapes
By Mulholland Family
What a terrific way to teach shapes with this new game. Frankie's is a hit for even kids that are older than the recommended age. Now that they are learning when playing you don't mind playing it over and over. Watch their skills develop and flourish each time they play. Must have for every young child.
Playing with your food - so much fun!
By Maine mummy
This game was an instant hit in our house, firstly because my son recognized the box from one of his other favorite games - Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel, but then because it is a delightful game to play. The gameplay is simple and the rules easy to follow. I don't have enough words for how much my five year old enjoys playing this. It hasn't gotten old, and he will play with anyone who will sit with him. He will even play with his two year old brother, who really prefers to pretend to eat the food. You spin the wheel and Frankie helps you pick an item of food for your plate. The first person to fill their plate wins. It can be mani, or it can be a nice calm game. It can help you talk to your kids about a balanced meal, or just be a fun game. This is one of those games that would be great to play with the grandparents on Christmas morning after the crazy has died down. Since the food pieces snap into the plastic clips, you could easily make up pictures of other foods you eat, and use them as game pieces - as long as the shapes correspond to the spinning wheel. Definitely on our list of go to toys for birthday presents!
Simple Game-play Fun

Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game is a great game for ages 4+. This game helps teach shapes, colors and math skills. The first to complete their 5 course meal is the winner. this fun food game helps children to think about each play and to take turns with their opponents. The game is simple for little ones to understand. Spin the spinner, match a food item with the same shape as what your spinner landed on and be the first to complete to 5 course meal. I received this game for review all opinions are 100% my own.
Lots of Fun!

We received this item for review. My four year was eager to play and the rules were easy enough to follow! The span of the game also very appropriate. He had minor difficulty operating the squeezer, but with time became a pro! My younger son was able to join us and even add a few pieces to his plate!
Fun preschool game
This is a good preschool game that helps with learning shapes, taking turns, and good sportsmanship. It's a very simple game, but is suitable for 3-6 year olds (and maybe some 2 year olds). It is a game for 2-4 players. The concept of the game is to spin the spinner, then select a food item that is the same shape that you land on (triangle watermelon slice, square waffle, etc.). You get to pick up the food pieces with Frankie, a plastic cat that acts like a set of tweezers. There are also some "bad" spaces to spin, such as slip on a banana peel and lose a turn, or get a fly in your soup and have to return a food item to the food truck. This helps kids learn how to deal with disappointment and learning that you can still have fun even if things don't go your way. I'd recommend this game to anyone with young kids. I was sent this game in order to review it, but all opinions and experiences stated are mine.
