Educational Insights’ Frankie’s Food Truck Fiasco Game Review

Posted on: June 9th, 2015 by

We received the Frankie’s Food Truck Fiasco Game, at no charge, to review from Educational Insights. We appreciate their support of Jersey Family Fun which allows us to share information about math toys we think families may enjoy.

 

Are you looking for a way to help your kids learn about shapes in a fun way?

 

If the answer to that question is yes, then Educational Insights’ Frankie’s Food Truck Fiasco Game is for you. My youngest boy is in Kindergarten. Shapes are something he is pretty used to, but he loves any opportunity to develop his math skills and test them against his brothers. This new Educational Insights game 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.

 

 

Frankie’s Food Truck Fiasco Game, Educational Insights’ math shape game gives kids a shape-tastic way to learn. 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.
