With an active almost 4 year old in the house we are always looking for fun and educational toys and games to get us moving. When I first read about the Pancake Pile-Up Relay Game I knew that this was a perfect game for Jude. He loves playing games but has a REALLY hard time sitting and concentrating on the game.
Not only is this game really fun but it will be a fun game to play on National Pancake Day! Did you know there was a day just for Pancakes? Yup there is!! So on March 4th we will be having a Pancake Dinner and have some fun inside playing a little Pancake Pile-Up!
This game is an interactive game that helps your child have fun and burn energy but also LEARN while playing! This makes me happy. Basically the child looks at a menu card to build an order of pancakes and then has to run them to the table. The game comes with 10 pancakes in 5 different flavors – blueberry, banana, chocolate chip, plain and strawberry; 2 plates, 2 pats of butter, 2 spatulas, 10 order cards and a game board.
The moment I opened this game Jude and Teagan started building stacks of pancakes. The game pieces are well made and adorable!
We have played with this relay game inside and outside. I think that is the beauty of this game. Not only does it burn energy but it can be something that you know your children are actually learning when playing!
I have seen the concentration in Jude’s eyes when trying to build the right order but also when he is “running” his pancakes to the table. He is care to not drop these pancakes, which also builds his fine motor skills! Win Win!!
Teagan just likes to play with the game pieces. Obviously this game is over her head but I love watching her try to build the pancake piles like her big brother.
Age recommendations for this game is ages 4 and up but Jude who is 3 caught on to the concept pretty quickly. Even though Teagan doesn’t understand the order cards she still enjoys playing with the game with Jude and us.
We have had a great time with our Pancake Pile-Up!™ Relay Game! This is not a game that everyone has so it would be a perfect Christmas or birthday gift for that hard to buy child who has everything. Put this on your list to buy!
