Holiday Gift Guide: French Toast & Friends Board Game Review & Giveaway


Now that Josiah is a little older, he loves playing board games. He's still learning patience and sharing, which is why I love the French Toast & Friends: French Toast Forgets His Lunch Board Game we received for review. Josiah loves helping pack his lunchbox now that he goes to school, so he couldn't wait to give this game a try.

About the Game (from website)

Oh no! French Toast™ forgot his lunch! Can you help him? Travel around the game board to collect food pieces and be the first to deliver a full lunch box to French Toast™. You're such a good friend.

French Toast and Friends™
French Toast Forgets His Lunch Board Game teaches your children all about sharing and friendship all while having fun!
Manufactured by The Haywire Group.
Ages 3+

My Thoughts
The main problem we've had with some board games are that they involve reading. We aren't quite at that level just yet and that can be frustrating for a preschooler, but not with the French Toast & Friends game! No reading is necessary for youngsters, it's fun, and teaches valuable lessons. From the moment we opened the game, Josiah was excited. The colors pop, the characters are so cute and there are many pieces with which to play. 



I have played this game over and over with Josiah already. Once we start, he doesn't want to stop! First, you choose which piece of food you want to be- a doughnut, bacon, cupcake or cereal (I think that's what it is). I decided to be bacon and Josiah was the doughnut! The object of the game is to collect pieces of food for our separate lunchboxes. The winner is the one who gets three matching food pieces in a row first. Then, you visit French Toast in the center of the game to deliver his lunchbox!  After all, that's what friends are for, right? The lesson is clear- sharing and caring! This is a lesson all preschoolers need to learn and something they often struggle with, especially concerning siblings. 

Josiah was so excited when he won!
 Liam is just a little too young at 2 years old, but I think 3 is about right for this game. The concept is simple, yet each time you play, the game is different! Since you roll the die and move pieces the number of spaces, kids also learn counting. I've already noticed Josiah's counting abilities improve as we've played more. What I also like about this game is that it's similar to other board games Josiah will be able to play as he gets older, so it's teaching him the basics of board games.
I love this game, Mama!
We are completely impressed with French Toast & Friends: French Toast Forgets His Lunch. I have a feeling it will be a favorite of Josiah's for a very long time. He's already asked to take it to school and share with his friends. It's something I know his entire class will enjoy.
