Edited to add:
Now that I've used this game for a few months, I feel like I have a few more things to add to this review. The fruit pieces are very well made. I like how the maker decided to make them one color each, for several reasons. First of all, it makes it easier to distinguish when you spin a color as to which color fruit you pick. Second, it is very helpful for my therapy for kids who are working on color concepts because it's more concrete. The fruit still look just a new as when I received the game even after being used and handled by lots of different students. I can't say that for all of the games I have purchased over the years. The fruit stand itself has held up very well. I was skeptical at first because it is cardboard but it's lasting well so far. The spinner is the same--it's held up well and still spins smoothly. The box that holds the game is also better made than a lot of games I have bought. I anticipate this game to last many, many years.
I had bought this game because Learning Resources tends to make things of higher quality that can withstand lots of play and I'm glad I chose them. I will continue to look for Learning Resources games for my students and my own children.
It helps to work on taking turns, colors, counting to three, strategy (collect one of each fruit, not just your favorite color of fruit), fine motor skills, and being a good winner/loser. They use this in my children's preschool too.
The stand is adjustable, with the picture showing the steepest level. You can re-Velcro the ribbon to make the stand less steep, so that it's easier. It is cardboard. My kids are not gentle, but are supervised when using games. It held up just fine for us, but I wouldn't say that it's very sturdy. Then again, the stand isn't interesting, so when they have taken the parts to play with it's usually the fruit to the play kitchen or the tongs for bug-collecting. Those parts are sturdy.
Definitely a fun & educational game for the 2+ year old crowd, with the educational value (but not the fun) going down as the kid gets older.
