Frankie's Food Truck Fiasco is a fun game in which players try to be the first to build a five-course meal by choosing foods that match geometric shapes. Instructions are preschooler friendly: Spin the spinner to place an order. Find a matching food card and use the Frankie "squeezer" to move it to your game card. Be the first to match and fill the five plates. But keep an eye out for greedy guests, flies or banana peels.

As soon as the youngest testers saw the brightly-colored illustrated box, the questions began. What kind of truck is that? What does the truck need to make and store the food? Where is the truck driving? They asked if the truck came from the country or the city. But no one batted an eye that a cat was driving.

Players learned about taking turns, and helping friends find pieces. They learned new words, shapes, colors and numbers. We talked about manners and food groups and what we'd be having for lunch.
