A delicious way to get kids moving—grasp the spatula, collect the ‘cakes, and race them over to the plate as the card states. Pancake Pile Up serves up a menu for both gross and fine motor skills with a side of motor planning and a dash of cognitive skill development. Balance and coordination are offered as final courses in this pretend play way to fill your kids’ educational plate.

Comments about Pancake Pile-Up!™ Relay Game:
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!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pancake pile up is such a fun cute game.
About Me Homeschooler, Parent
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.Here is more on Pancake pile up:The Big IdeaOrder up! It's a busy day at the diner, so don't dilly-dally.

Great Fun, but limited to two players

About Me Educator
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.
