I’ve found that my kids really enjoy game that involve quick thinking and speed so this was a perfect fit for them. Since it can be for 2 to 8 players it’s perfect for them to play alone or for all of us as a family.
The bright colorful cards also attracted my toddler who is too young to play but he likes playing with the cards and taking them out and fitting them back in the tin. We have put him in charge of clean up while he works on his fine motor skills! I can also play our own version alone with him where we name the fruits and colors and start on the lower numbers when he learns to count.
The games is for ages 7 and up and I’d say that’s just right. My six year old can play but she’s not as fast as my eight year old so she gets a little frustrated. She is in first grade and while she knows her numbers and colors well, it still isn’t automatically processed just by looking at the card like it is with my eight year old.
The cards have different fruits on them with different amounts and they have to match the number cards with the correct fruit cards. Some are super easy with just one but it gets tricky when they go up to higher numbers in the double digits. It ads a little suspense to the game watching them frantically trying to ad them up!
The game helps kids develop and improve their processing speed as well as really focus and pay attention. I find this especially useful for my six year old who has a hard time paying attention and is something we are working on with her. I found this to be a great, fun way to do it, even if she gets frustrated at times.
Fast Flip is another hit in our house and one we will continue to enjoy together. As a bonus it comes in a metal tin and is super small so it’s a great one to take along on road trips and sleepovers!
Get ready to scramble for the match in this crazy fruit salad! Match your fruits to a number, or numbers to a fruit; you don’t know what match you’ll have to find next! Whether you play with the tokens or with the cards alone, all players of any age will be fast flipping for this brain teasing match up. The game comes complete in a tin for your cards and tokens, making it an easy travel item. The magic distribution of fruits on the cards guaranties that there is always one correct answer. You just need to be the fastest to find it!
