      The game is simple enough that my 7 year old son and twin 5 year old daughters can play on their own. You can work on multiple concepts with this toy. Counting, shapes, type of food and so on. I love the board game concepts this company produces.

        Comments about Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game™:

        Frankies Food Truck Fiasco is a great game for young children. I love that the game is put together from the beginning and I don't have to put the holders on all the pieces. I also like how the box is part of the game so it doesn't get left on the floor, sat in, used as a slide, etc. Oh. Maybe that's just MY kids :). The pieces are super sturdy cardboard and while they would not stand up to a drooling baby, they withstood the two year old rather well, who loved to spin the wheel and use the cat tweezers to pick up my pieces for me.

        It's great for shape recognition, learning the rules of how to play games and find motor skills. My 2 & 4 year old loved it and even the 7 year old enjoyed playing with the rest of us! I would totally recommend this to anyone with a 3 or 4 year old. High quality and tons of fun. The tweezers make it fun even when shapes are mastered because there is another element to it.

        Disclaimer: I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

          All three of my kids (ages 3, 6 and 9) enjoyed playing this game. The 9 year old can lead the game for the younger ones. Great fun game for learning shapes and beginning strategies. I like the fact that even though it is for little ones but there is a built in strategy element, not commonly found in toys/games for young children. Highly recommended for families with young kids.

            This game can keep children entertained for hours. I love the fact that is appeals to all children- both boys and girls. Its portable as the game board is part of the box, and the pieces come already set up for you. The rules are simple, and children can play with it independently once the rules are explained to the child. Since there are countless ways to win, each time you play it is like playing a brand new game. I also tested this game in my classroom and it was a hit! The students loved it and I had all of the parents asking where I got the game. There are also so many educational aspects to this game it makes it the perfect toy!

            Great Way to Learn About Shapes During Family Game Night

              I was sent this toy to review.

              I love this game as a great family activity for younger children to middle school children. It goes beyond your basic shapes and also introduces kids to shapes like hearts, stars, and crescent moons. This is also a non-reading game that is a quick and fun way to get in some family game night fun.

              The game pieces are pretty self contained in the box lid. The pieces stay there until a player picks them. Each player gets a place mat with 5 different spots. Players use a spinner to collect each of the 5 pieces they need. The first player to fill their place mat wins.Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game pieces, place mats, and the spinner are made of a durable cardboard. They can be wiped clean. No batteries are required.

              With multiple shapes and spinner choices, Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game provides kids with chances to learn about shapes as well as taking turns. The Frankie Squeezer helps kids practice pre-writing skills by using it to pick up pieces as they are moved from the box lid to place mats.

                My kids received this game yesterday, and we've already played it at least 8 times. They both love it! It is definitely more for a preschool age, as the shape matching and game play is very simple, but my almost 6 year old daughter enjoys playing it as well. It's a quicker game, which is good for holding the attention of my 2.5 year old son, and is easy enough that he understands how to play with just a little prompting. They both get a kick out of the different foods to choose from. The pieces come pre-assembled and everything is very sturdy. The artwork is colorful and fun, and my son loves playing with the Frankie cat tweezer too.

                  I am a pediatric occupational therapist. I have used this game with many kids between ages of 5 to 10. They all pretty much love it. The rules are pretty simple and easy to understand and the tongs are a fun way to incorporate working on fine motor skills, visual motor skills. its a great idea. I have already had parents ask where this toy is from as they would like to purchase as a gift.

                    Comments about Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game™:

                    This game is great for younger kids, but would be boring for kids much older than 5 or so I think. My little ones are 2 & 4 & they love it. It is colorful & fun, they like Frankie & finding the shapes. Of course, they will need my help for a while since they can't read what the directions for the spinner are. It seems like a durable game that should last us a while.
                    My only question is what do you do if you get a shape you already have? We just did it as lose a turn or have multiple pieces since we weren't sure.

                      Comments about Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game™:

                      My kids (4 & 6 yrs. old) had fun playing this game and laughed a lot. They usually try to cheat at games, but they didn't with this game. They were really focused on picking out the "fun" food that matched the shape that they spun. My 4 year old already has shape recognition and matching skills, which this game teaches, so I questioned why the game is for kids 4+ and not 3+. The box says it develops beginning math skills, but the included cat squeezer also helps with writing skills because it helps develop the proper pencil grip. This was definitely a benefit for my 4-year old! I also liked that the game reinforced taking turns.
