Fast Flip Card Game Review – Toys and games are an integral part of a child’s natural, healthy development. Children ages 6 – 8 have established basic fine motor skills, language, verbal and non verbal communication. It’s at this point, age 6 to 8, when they begin honing these acquired skills. Toys and games that attract them at this age involve puzzles, logic skills, such as checkers, and games that involve physical activities.
Among the skills that should be developed and nurtured by the parent at this time, are the development of the child’s mathematical skills. In order for children to fully develop their skill in mathematics, matching and sorting games, such as Fast Flip Cards by Blue Orange Games, is an absolute must. The building of basic math skills incorporates not only matching, but classification of objects as well.

Fast Flip Cards arrive in a decorative triangular shaped tin that holds 54 triangle shaped cards, 10 tokens and illustrated instructions. When you open the tin and examine the cards, you will see that one side of the card has an image of an assortment of fruits which include: bananas, oranges, pineapples, strawberries, and raspberries. When you turn the card over, there will be either a single number, or a single fruit. Tokens each picture a number or fruit.
To start, you make a draw pile or stack of cards, with the assortment of fruits face down. You then take off the top card, and flip it, which shows the assortment of fruits. The players work quickly to find a match between the number and the fruit. In Fast Flip Cards, Players must move fast when finding a match, so the game is very competitive.

It should be noted that the triangular shape of the cards can make shuffling the cards difficult for young children, so to help keep game play moving between rounds, an adult may have to shuffle the card deck.
