An Avalanche of Fruit #Giveaway

Daisy has been commenting that she misses the Super Sorting Pie that she got to play with a year ago.

So I figured it was time to let them have a play with another fruit game, Avalanche Fruit Stand this time.

Avalanche Fruit Stand

The object of the game is to be the first player to collect one of each type of fruit. As is typical for us, we just started playing and made up the rules as we played.

An Avalanche of Fruit

The games comes with:

  • 2 Easy Grip Tweezers
  • 40 Pieces of Fruit
  • Fruit Stand Game Board
  • Spinner

If you are a stickler for the rules, they are printed on the back of the fruit stand and so, easy to read at any time. They are also difficult to lose, game parts vanishing is a frequent occurrence in our house.

We set up the fruit on the stand and began to play. The spinner tells you what to fruit to pick; colour, number or the star, which means you can steal from another player (that part we did read). The game is fast paced and short, perfect for younger players.

Our cat got in on the action too but his aim was to knock the stand over!

Although this game is recommended for children over the age of three, Rose enjoyed playing too. Her wee hands only coped with the tweezers for a few minutes but what a great way to build up muscle power in the hands. We have a couple of these tweezers at home and play with them often.

We will be back next week to tell you about how we played with the fruit pieces.

If you would like to play with this Avalanche Fruit Stand game all you need to do is one of the following:

Before Friday 19th April 2013, 4pm Central Time.

This contest is open to Canadian residents only.

Looking forward to hearing from you and good luck!

  1. This game looks fantastic. It would be so wonderful for developing sorting skills, fine motor control, and specifically the pincher grip.

  3. This has been on my “one day I’ll get it” list for a while now. I’d love to add it to our collection of fun 🙂

  4. Our Kindergarten and grade 4 teachers are doing an author study with Eric Carle, so the Eric Carle’s Game collection would be a wonderful resource especially for the students in the two classes to play together.

    The other game is ‘Don’t Rock the Boat’ for the obvious educational reasons, but it fits so well in with our penguin unit! How cute to play while we sing our penguin songs!

  5. I liked you on Facebook and am Commenting! I am excited at the chance to win and then use these on my light table at work!!!! and yet another item to add to the wish list. Thanks Quality Classrooms for so many good things to wish for 🙂

  6. Hi would love to win this game for our center. Our children really enjoy working with small manipulatives like these not to mention how much they enjoy to carry and tote around these small items as well.
