The Pancake Pile-Up Relay Game is a relay game in which children use spatulas to carry pancakes, in a specific order, to a plate and top with a pat of "pretend" (plastic) butter. The game includes 10 pancakes (sized 2.5 inches in circumference) in five different flavors; blueberry, strawberry, banana, chocolate chip and plain, two pats of butter, two plates, two spatulas, 10 order cards, a griddle game board and a user guide. The pancakes are just the right size and weight for toddlers to manage and manipulate. The cards depicting how to stack up the pancakes are clear and the pictures were identical to the pieces included.

Another benefit is that the griddle game board is attached to the bottom of the box, making one less piece to lose. This thoroughly enjoyable game helps children develop sequencing abilities, visual synthesis of physically copying what they see, and gross motor skills. The Pancake Pile-Up Relay is great fun for two players or groups of toddlers playing in teams. The game even inspired us to have pancakes for dinner.
