Firstly, I must comment on the durability and top quality of all components in this game. This is one to really last throughout childhood and then be passed on.
My son has Down Syndrome and I was sent this to play and review.
Although my son is 12 years old, he really enjoyed this game over and over. In fact when he doesn't want to sit and do his homework, playing this after will bribe him to finish quicker.
Game is bright and colorful, pieces are easy to manipulate, especially the big plastic Frankie that one picks up the food pieces with. Very good for eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills. I like the fact that the food pieces are actually double sided, so wherever at the table you sit, you can see what the pieces are, unlike some other games which are just one sided.
Matching assorted foods to shapes is a novel way of looking at food. I would never have actually thought of it myself! My son actually forgot what a rectangle was and we had to go over all the shapes with him again, which was just as well we had this game! One can have lots of chit chat while playing this game, all to do with the different components of it. Shapes, colors, sizes, which of the same shaped foods one prefers and why, what is a menu and what is it made up of? Feelings: what does one feel when one loses a piece, when one wins a piece etc. One can learn strategies from this game. Look at the other players' cards, which pieces do they have and which should one choose when one lands on the part that gives you the choice of shapes to choose from? Which piece should one steal from your friend when landing on that part of the spinner etc. But then again, that part is probably for children who are just a bit older.
This game needs no reading skills, once younger children master the machinations of it, they can play it all on their own and feel really independant and grown up!

Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco Game has a lot of kid appeal! The illustrations on the box and on all the pieces are colorful, whimsical, and a whole lot fun to look at. In this game, children will practice their math skills in recognizing a number of different geometric shapes found in common foods and treats. Game play is easy to catch on to. Kids will practice patience by taking turns, develop their fine motor skills, and sharpen their critical thinking and decision making abilities.

This game is for children ages four and up. I believe it's best suited for children preschool through kindergarten. That being said, my kids ages 7 and 4 had fun with this game. They liked using the Frankie cat squeezer to pick up foods on their turns. The re-playability for this game is moderate for us. It's best as a teaching tool to supplement what they are learning in their schooling.

Game play time varies from 15-30 minutes depending on the number of people playing. Up to four people can play at once. Set up and clean up is fast. The instructions were pretty basic and there were a few things that weren't very clear. For example when a player lands on a shape to pick up that they already have, we aren't told if they should skip their turn or spin again. We substituted and just stuck to our own rule on this particular thing. Other than that, the game is still fun and works out pretty well.

      Comments about Educational Insights Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco:

      We played the game on one of our family game nights and both my kids 5 and 2.5 year old really enjoyed it. My toddler could play it over and over again and it was especially beneficial for her, since you learn shapes. My preschooler was done paying after a few turns, but we all had lots of fun playing a new game.

          My daughter loves board games and we have a few "Education Insight" games. She loves them all. This particular game focuses on shape and color. It is fun and doesn't like a long time to finish. I recommend it.

              Simple directions and educational. Fun for our whole family!

                We bought this game on clearance at Toys R Us and we have loved it! My 2 year old loves games and this is one he can play with the whole family and our 4 year old loves it too. It helps them learn shapes bc each food is a shape. It develops their fine motor skills by using the kitty cat "tweezers". Our two year old has a hard time using the tweezers so we let him use his hands for now but as he grows older we can add them to the game play. During game play they can add food item to their plate, lose a turn, take a food item from another player, or put a food item back in the "truck" based on how they spin. This adds so much variety to the game. It can be difficult for a little one to get their food item taken from another player but it also teaches them life skills and as a parent we can teach them how to cope when something happens they don't like at a time when it's just a game and not real life. We enjoy this game and would recommend it to anyone and we couldn't beat the price.

                    Similar to Sneaky Snacky Squirrel game, but this one involves shape recognition. It's easier to grab the pieces since they're flat, and upright. Very sturdy construction. I like that the game board is the inside of the box, makes for easy clean up and storage.
