Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for counting and colors We don't use this yet for the actual intended purposes because our child is a little too young to understand the concept of thenfull game. However, she loves playing with it all the time. We use it to help her understand categorization, colors and counting. She also uses the little muffins as "food" sometimes in her play kitchen. It says it is for 3+ but as a 2.5 yr old we love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Learning fun Opening the box at first with my 3 year old daughter she was so excited! I as well, with the sturdiness and weight of the little muffins. The muffins had a great weight to it making it super durable and I knew it was not cheaply made. The little purple tong it came with was a great way to teach her how to utilize her thumb and index finger coordination. The colors being primary appealed to both my daughter and nephew! ( would love it maybe possibly in more fun sprinkled tops like cupcakes next :) ) The instructions were easy to understand and gave multiple ways to incorporate learning Numbers and colors. I am trying to teach her to count to the numbers shown in the picture so this is definitely a great interactive game :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect gift with a multitude of activity possibilities! This product is amazing and I highly recommend it to parents with pre-k age kids and upwards. It's a great way to teach colors, color sorting and matching for my 2.5yr old. The design is so cute with the realistic muffin tin and the vibrant mini muffins. My son has also been using it as pretend play in his play kitchen. He loves using the mini tongs to pick the muffins up and it's easy to use with his little hands. There are so many activities to do using this toy and I can see it really growing with my child. He doesn't know his numbers yet, but it comes with a great instructional pamphlet with activity ideas for counting, addition/subtraction, etc that we will be using in the years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Muffin Matchup Is A Must Have For All Preschool Students I have used the mini muffin matchup game in both the public pre-k classroom setting as well as in my own homeschool setting. I love this game because it truly is a game that can grow with the child. For a 2-3 year old you can use this game to work on sorting colors. As a child processes into K4 you can use this as a counting game as well as matching. You can take the game aspect out as the child ages and use this for a grade school child. With my oldest daughter who is now 6 and in 1st grade we are still using the muffins for her on a daily basis as a math manipulative. She is a visual leaner and having the muffins in place truly helps with visualizing her problems. This is a high quality product. Made wonderful and has lasted us for two years now with no issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great toy for 3 and 5! I gave this as a Christmas gift to my 3 year old. Dispite getting many other more fancy items, he was very drawn to this toy. My five year old is enjoying it as well. Overall, it seems very well made, except the scooper is a bit flimsy. I also like that there are so many different ways to play. I would have given it five stars except I think it should come with two scoopers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Stars! I highly recommend this set if you have a child in Pre-K or Kindergarten! My boys (almost 2 and almost 4) have so much fun playing with it. We received it for a blog review and I have actually been surprised how much they have played with it and learned from it. We use it in our homeschool lessons as well. Great quality, and cute. Fantastic set!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Math Made Fun I saw this Mini Muffin Match Up and immediately wanted it for my five year old daughter Paige. She loves to play kitchen and sorting things is one of her favorite things to do. I figured this was a great learning game utilizing something she will see as play. The easy grip green sides make it perfect for little hands to pick up and carry without dropping. The bright colorful muffins immediately grabbed the attention of all three kids, including my seven month old! With little parts, this is one that should always be played at a table, out of the reach of babies. There are several options to play. I always go through each of the suggested ones with the included directions with my kids and they end up choosing a favorite or creating their own variations. There doesn't have to be rules! The simplest thing which would be best for three or four year olds is sorting and matching or the "Match Me" game. Even though my five year old has this down at her age, she still enjoyed it and I had her used the enclosed tongs to make it a little bit more challenging for her. We also played "Count Your Colors" with with the included dice which are nice, big, soft foam so they don't get easily lost and are manageable for chubby toddler hands! There is a color and a number die and when she rolled them, she would then pick out four purple for example. I had her use the tongs again to make it a little bit more of a challenge. We also played "One of These Muffins Just Doesn't Belong" which is probably better suited for those younger than my five year old. My six year old Reed is really into math and is more advanced than Paige in that department so he likes when I do "Solving Story Problems" and make up word problems using the muffins. Both of my kids really liked this Mini Muffin Match Up game and though each had their favorite variation, they will both play any version of the game together happily!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, Educational, Colorful Our four kids have really enjoyed the Mini Muffin Match Up. Made with sturdy construction, the Muffin Tin should last forever. The colors on the Mini Muffins are bright and fun. Even our 2 year old is learning to sort by color with this set. I love the open ended possibilities this set allows us in terms of learning and even free play. Plus, the kids love the Squeezy Tweezers that is included! Overall, really great product and we love it. *I received a sample in exchange for an honest blog post.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Multi-level toy/game This is a fun game/toy to help your little one develop a multitude of math skills. In addition to math skills this game also encourages color recognition, matching and more. This item comes with a pair of dice, which feature colors and numbers (0-6), Squeezy Tweezers™ (which are awesome and offering the perfect size for little hands, and perfect for little ones to pick up the mini muffins), you also receive 1 muffin pan, 60 mini muffin counters, 12 double-sided sorting-circle inserts, and Activity Guide. As you can see from the photo above the Squeezy Tweezers™ are amazing and so cute. They help your little one easily pick up the mini muffins and be able to move them into the muffin pan. The mini muffins themselves are super adorable. I love all the colors that they come in, and how many you receive with this set. The muffin pan is super cute and a perfect way to make this set really a must have. My daughter and I had a lot of fun playing this game. I would suggest this game for anyone school or kindergarten. The sooner that you work with your child on counting, colors, adding, subtracting and more the stronger their foundation will be for the future. My daughter loves that this toy offers her the ability to free play but we can also use it for a structured games. The activity guide is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Mini Muffin Match Up {sent to us to review} comes with a high recommendation from me and I think is totally worth the price for what you get. Just the small muffins alone are awesome for so many things. The addition of the tray, the grabber, the disks and dice make it even better! If you are looking for a new versatile learning toy for early childhood, this would be a great option. There is so much versatility with this toy, free play and structured games are both options.
