Fun Learning Game

Comments about Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game™:
I was pleased when I opened the box … the game was easy to set up and the food pieces came already attached to their stands. These features were much appreciated as my kids wanted to play as soon as they saw the box. I also enjoyed the sturdy construction of the food pieces, spinner, place mats and the Frankie piece picker upper! My children enjoyed spinning the wheel to find out what shape to hunt for in the box. This game worked well for my 3 1/2 and 5 3/4 year olds; they were able to follow the instructions and did not need much guidance.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fun game for 3 and up

About Me Parent Of Multiples (Twins etc)
We received Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game as a gift and it is a hit! We have 3 kids ages 4.5 and 3 yr old twins. They all understand the concept of using the placemat cards, spinning the wheel and selecting a shape. But sometimes they want a particular shape, or want to land on the "looks delicious" spot so they can steal a food from a friend. It's a great learning game about shapes, sharing, taking turns, and that sometimes someone can take a piece away and it's ok. I'm sure after a few more rounds I will be able to take out the game and let them have fun on their own. The rules are nice and simple. Allows for friendly competition.
Perfect Shape Learning Game for Preschool/Pre-K!

I received the Frankie's Food Truck game free for review. All opinions are my own.This game is really great for preschool and pre-k kids to learn about their shapes! My 3 and 5 year old children were able to quickly pick up on the rules of the game and play with ease. They really loved the cat grabber and that the shapes were all food items. Then enjoyed being able to "steal" from another player.As a parent, I love that this game has very sturdy pieces and easy rules. It is really helpful that it uses something familiar like food to teach and reinforce shapes. The spinner is perfect for little hands and spins with ease unlike other games we own. I also love the same of the box and it's sturdiness. So many times, we find that our game boxes are flimsy and break almost immediately. This one is really thick and sturdy so it should hold up for a long time!I highly recommend this game as a gift for any little one 3-6 years of age. It can be fun for older ones/parents/caregivers to play with little ones as well!
Definitely a good buy

About Me Education Oriented, speech therapist
This is a great game. The colors and the game pieces are colorful and sturdy. The kids I work with all mentioned how it reminded them of another game, they like, The Sneaky Squirrel game. As a speech therapist this game works on the following areas, receptive and expressive language. The children are engaged with the game. It can be used in many different ways. IT can be used with children two years and older, even 10 year olds.I would highly recommend it.
Practicing fine motor skills can be fun
from Torrance, CA
About Me First Time Parent, Working Parent
Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game is a simple but entertaining game. It not only helps them to learn how to recognize basic shapes in food items, but it also helps them develop fine motor skills. My 5 year old knows her basic shapes but struggles with her hand-eye coordination. This game allowed her to practice her fine motor skills while having some fun so if you ask me it was a win-win situation.

Frankie's Shows Shapes in Real Objects!
By Mrs. Chalkbox
from Altoona, PA
About Me Education Oriented, Grandparent
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!!
Merchant response: Hello, Mrs. Chalkbox, thanks so much for the review. We'd like to see how we can get this item in your store. Please contact me at email@example.com so I can assist. Thanks, Nicole DawleyEducational Insights.
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
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!
About Me Education Oriented, Parent Of Two Or More Children
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.
