      Comments about Pancake Pile-Up!™ Relay Game:

      My 4 year old daughter loved this game from the start and is always excited when I take it out to play. She's loves the competition and always wants to win.

      I initially noticed the quality of the product. The packaging and game pieces are sturdy as well as bright and fun.

      I especially love the attention to detail that is required with this game. My daughter has had to go back and fix her pancake order because the sequence she had was incorrect. If this happens she quickly corrects and makes sure to complete her order right the first time in successive games.

      I also like the balance and coordination skills this game provides. When I'm watching my daughter race across the room, I can see her focusing on not dropping the pancake.

      I was a little skeptical about this game being entertaining for a 4 year old for any length of time, but it's actually very engaging and fun!

      Additional note for younger ages:
      I also let my younger daughter (2 year old=25 months) play a couple of rounds. She can pick out the correct pancake when I tell which to pick up or point to the pancake on the card (modifying the game rules). She doesn't have the motor skills of my 4 year old. The two year old holds the spatula with the pancake in one hand and places her other hand on top of the pancake for more control as she walks across the room. She stacks the pancakes; but she's not really racing.

      I received this game free to evaluate in exchange for an honest review

          I look for toys that are both educational and fun. Here I found both. This game strengthens sequencing skills and pattern recognition in my opinion, while building pancake stacks and having fun. Sequencing is an important skill to practice especially for my daughter. Sequencing skills are used daily, such as when getting dressed, getting into a car, and reading or re-telling a story. Practicing this skill in a fun way is great. This game can help her a lot.

          I like the fun patterns and colors on the toppings that will help children who are learning colors. And, I also like the colorful cards and the material the pancakes are made of. And, the pancakes have a quality non-flimsy feel to them. I like the educational aspect and the fact that my daughter has fun when she plays. She likes the fact that she has fun. I recommend pancake pile-up!

              We have a had a great time with this game! I love that it promotes teamwork and healthy competition at the same time. They are learning sequencing and working on fine and gross motor skills in addition to other extension skills like counting and problem solving. It has been a fun way to get some exercise and spend time together too. At times my 3 year old gets a little frustrated but we modify the directions and let her use both hands which seems to help. My 5 year old loves it and claims that it is "one of her favorite games of all times". Educational Insights products are always such good quality and so much fun and this one is no exception!

                Comments about Pancake Pile-Up!™ Relay Game:

                I received this as a review item. All views are my own.

                I had been looking at games that both boys could play together. They are at different stages which makes it hard. I also need to make sure it was for two or more players. The twin next door are over alot and I need to make sure they are able to play too.

                When I got asked to review this super cute game little did I know it would be a huge hit on our street. Pancake pile up is such a fun cute game. It is a mix of matching, following directions, and teamwork.

                Made for two or more players make sure it is an even number. What I love about this game in a mom point of view is it gets them up moving and worn out. This can even be use with larger group of kids.

                I bought it outside got the kids together. It was a blast. It is the one game they all can play. I bring it out right before bed to get the kids worn out and ready for bed. Pancake pile up is a relay race to match your stack to the pic.

                No reading necessary for this game. Easy to play game thats a ton of fun. Now if you are worried they will grow out of it here are some tips. lay out an obstacle course making harder to keep the pancakes on your spatchula. As your child grows make the distance longer.

                This game is one you can really add to for even more fun. I also love that the box is used as part of the game. Unlike most kids games the parts are well made and will last for years. I was really surprised with this game.

                I recommend this game for all families and ages. You will have the kids on your street begging to come play.

                Comments about Pancake Pile-Up!™ Relay Game:

                My Pre-K students enjoyed playing this with and without the cards. I used it in a center with extra spatulas, home center plates and no cards. I also used it in a center with just the items provided; however, this meant only two friends could play at a time. There are not enough items to use this as a relay game in a Pre-K classroom setting (the wait for a turn would be too long for four and five year olds.
