The Big Idea:
It’s a showdown in a bowl! Grab a spoon and watch as it magically changes color. Then, dig into the cereal-serving bowl and scoop up pieces of that color. Cross your fingers for a color flash free-for-all and collect two pieces at a time. During this all-play game, quickly collect the most cereal pieces to win!

Psst…They’re Learning!
  • Practices color recognition
  • Builds fine motor skills
  • Develops hand-eye coordination
  • Promotes sportsmanship and social skills


  • Cut to the Chase:
  • A fast-paced preschool color-matching game where 2 players compete for the most cereal pieces
  • Game components can also be used for pretend play
  • Quick, fun game that takes less than 5 minutes to play—once you’re done, battle again!
  • Requires 2 AAA batteries (not included)
  • For 2 players
    • Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award (2015)
    How to play:
    1. Players turn on their spoons at the same time. The scoop of the spoon changes colors.
    2. Players pick up the cereal pieces that match the color of their spoon's scoop.
    3. If it flashes quickly, the player has to pick up any 2 pieces at the same time.
    4. The game ends once there are no more cereal pieces in the shared bowl.
    5. The winner is the one with the most cereal.
    The nitty-gritty:
  • 2 Electronic light-up spoons
  • 1 Shared bowl
  • 2 Player bowls
  • 45 Cereal pieces
  • Guide
  • Requires 2 AAA batteries, not included
  • Inventors: Bill McIntyre and Brad Ross

    Bill and Brad have always beenbig fans of cereal, so it's nosurprise that this inventor teamchose the crunchy stuff as thetheme of their latest game.As a kid, you'd often find Billelbow-deep in the cereal box,fishing out the prize; to thisday, Brad's favorite breakfastis still Wheat Bran with a bitof fruit on top. And they bothrecommend a round of CrazyCereal to kick start yourmorning with fun!

    Educational Insights Crazy Cereal is fast paced electronic game. Upon arrival, my son and daughter ages 7 and 4 were drawn to the cheerful illustrations covering the box. I have to applaud the box design. It mimics an actual cereal box quite well with nutritional information, a maze to do on the back, and so on. My children couldn't wait playing this game as it promised laughter and fun!

    Before play, a parent, teacher, or guardian will need to locate 2 AAA batteries and install one each into the game spoons per the instructions given. This step only takes a few minutes. A normal sized Phillips head screwdriver sufficed in the installation process. The batteries are solely needed for the LED color changing lights which match individual pieces of cereal. Each of the spoons has an auto-shut off mode which saves batteries and the sheer wonder if everything was turned off after game play.

    This two player game focuses on matching and color recognition skills. It's a fast paced and is usually is over in about five minutes. Whoever has the most pieces of cereal in their bowl at the end wins. There's a bit a variation to the game to keep things interesting. Skill is required in scooping up one piece of cereal and then two at a time into their own bowls with only using one hand. This game can help with sharpening motor skills and hand-eye coordination. It provides a challenge and also can be used as an aid to teach patience and good sportsmanship with others.

    Aside from playing the game as instructed, the game pieces can be used as an aid in teaching or pretend play. The cereal pieces designs are a circle loop, star, and a waffle type square. The colors of each are red, orange, yellow, green, and blue. The high quality pieces can be used to create patterns, practice motor skills without the speed of the game, and as math manipulatives.
    My son and daughter seemed to find this game fun. Their only disappointment was that it was over somewhat quickly. To expand game play we decided they would play three rounds. I had to remind them the first few times about the only picking up the cereal using the spoon and not their other hand. I really like that this game provides challenge. At the end of each round, I had the kids count the pieces they collected in their bowls. They were enjoying themselves so much that I bet they didn't realize they were learning and developing important skills too!

    As an EI Insider, my girls occasionally receive toys from Educational Insights for review, and this was one of them...

    Crazy Cereal is a simple concept and a fun game, but perhaps a bit too simple in its gameplay. Made for two players ages 4+ (the "cereal" pieces are small, so this isn't for the really young), the game begins with all the cereal in one large bowl. As one player signals "go," each player turns on their lighted, LED spoon and begins taking cereal pieces one at a time from the large bowl, placing them into their bowl. If the LED's start flashing, it's "Crazy Mode" time, and that means you can take two pieces at a time, regardless of color. At the end, it's the player with the most pieces in their bowl that wins.

    While the game is cute and well-made, there isn't a lot to it, and that might make for an issue of attention span for some players. One or two rounds, and it's onto the next thing, so parents will want to keep that in mind. Crazy Cereal is best enjoyed in small servings.

        Comments about Educational Insights Crazy Cereal™ Electronic Game:

        Crazy Cereal Electronic Game by Educational Insights is a very simple game that is perfect for young kids. It comes with two spoons that light up (AAA batteries required and not included) and kids have to collect the color cereal pieces that correspond to the spoon color. Like I said, simple but fun. It is perfect for teaching kids colors, dexterity and friendly competition. You could even change the rules and go for certain shapes or do it by closing your eyes and seeing which color you picked. This is a perfect starter game for preschoolers.

        I received this product to review in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.

        We love this game! It's colorful, easy to play (or make up your own rules) and perfect when we need a little pre-meal distraction. Who doesn't love bright colors, flashing lights and well, CEREAL? It's great for counting, sorting, hand-eye coordination, manual dexterity and family fun. BEWARE, it will make you want to eat sugary cereal!

          This game is adorable. At first I thought it looked too easy for my 4 1/2 year old but I was way off. She loves it! It is great for hand eye coordination and for many laughs. It helps with practicing colors too. The colors are vibrant and the flashing spoons are a hit. She plays with her older sister (12), friends, and mommy......and everyone has enjoyed it. I highly recommend this game. We just got one for her friend as a birthday gift.

            My sons love this game! My five year old can play with my three year old without arguing because they both enjoy trying to dig into the bowl for the color that they need without dropping it. I'm just glad it's educational and they can play together so I get a few moments to myself ;)

                This game was very simple but very fun! My children all loved this game and wanted to play over and over. The youngest did not understand that you pick up the cereal color according to the light on the spoon but he really enjoyed just racing to see who can get the most cereal. This was great for developing his fine motor skills! My older two kids understood and they went to town! The simplicity of this game was the best (they could play on their own without me explaining things).
                My only complaint is I wish this game was a 3-4 player game and not just 2, so all my kids could play together.

                We enjoyed this game for the pace and, obviously, the light up spoons :) It's great hand-eye coordination practice and counting when the game is over. The bowls and pieces are all good quality and it's a simple game to play. We'd buy this for age 4-5 friends for sure!

                This is a fun game that will teach children focus and mental speed - think fast and move fast. Red light blinking, pick up red cereal, blue light co-ordinates with blue cereal and then 'crazy mode' , -pick up 3 colors at the same time. While my 4 and 5 year old completed the game in a matter of minutes, they still enjoyed the' crazy mode' part of the game . I believe that it is more suited for a 3 year old as it promotes great motor skill, color recognition, hand/eye coordination and counting. The spoons and all of the game materials are of superior quality and not cheap plastic so it's a real sturdy product for little competitive hands. Great concept and best for 3 year old
