      Comments about Avalanche Fruit Stand:

      As an OT working in a school system I ordered this game as a fun way to increase fine motor skills and intrinsic hand strength. It also targets turn taking, color and fruit identification and simple counting. I am not disappointed. The kids love using the tongs to pick up fruit. I can adjust the game for level and understanding of the particular student.

      The game itself is easy to set up and the tongs and fruit pieces are durable enough to withstand the frequent use. I am able to pack it up nicely to go in my bag from school to school. This game is a keeper!

        Comments about Avalanche Fruit Stand:

        My 7-year old son gets excited to play this game. He thinks the whole idea of trying to not let the fruit fall is very funny. I bought it for him because he needs help developing his fine motor skills. The tweezers that come with it work the best, but we also take turns using some tools that come in the Helping Hands Fine Motor Tool Set.

        We love this game but it did not include directions, so we made up our own. Kind of frustrating but still fun!

            I bought this for my preschool and the kids LOVE it. It is fine motor skills training at its best! The night we got it, my husband and I played it twice, and we were thoroughly entertained, too!

            Really like this game but there are no directions on how to play. It just says spin the spinner and grab a fruit of matching color but the spinner also has a 2 and a 3 on it and a star. Sooooo, what do you do when the spinner lands on those? Take three fruit out? Put three back? And what is the star for?

              This game is sturdy, colorful, and engaging. My son needs extra practice/strength for his pencil grip and this game is just the thing to keep him building skills without getting bored.
