Learning Resources Super Sorting Pie
The Super Sorting Pie teaches early number skills and attributes, including colors and fruit shapes. Provides supportive visual cues, thanks to the sorting cards that slip into the bottom of the pan. Top crust becomes a bowl to conveniently hold counters. Reinforces fine motor skills when children use jumbo tweezers, featuring depressions that guide little hands into the proper pincer grip. Children are sure to sort, count and relish large servings of fruity pie fun!
Fruity, Sorting Fun
The Super Sorting Pie is a delicious way to provide hands-on experiences with early math concepts such as sorting, counting, number sense, patterning, and beginning addition and subtraction. Give children plenty of “free exploration time” to play with the pie, the fun fruity counters, and tweezers to ensure familiarity. The pie has a removable sorting tray that allows children to sort and count in many ways. Place the sorting cards into the bottom of the pan to provide visual cues that support success. Jumbo tweezers are included to reinforce fine motor skills needed for handwriting.
Sort, Match, Pick, and Count
Includes 60 counters: seven fruits (apples, bananas, grapes, oranges, grapefruits, apricots, and plums) in five different colors. Activity Guide provides fun ideas for engaging children in a variety of kindergarten readiness skills: sorting with the Activity Cards, matching, color/attribute identification, patterning, and counting. Make early addition and subtraction concrete by removing pieces of fruit from a group and asking your child how many are left. Extend the play by encouraging some "pretend" pie baking, sharing, and selling.
Build Little Hand Muscles
The key to developing fine motor skills is developing the thumb-forefinger pincer grasp. The Super Sorting Pie includes two jumbo tweezers, perfect for reinforcing this crucial, pre-writing skill. The tweezers feature depressions that guide little hands into position. Use the tweezers as part of the play! Great for visual-motor integration too.

Top Customer Reviews
The Super Sorting Pie is perfect for kids to not only have fun but learn a few things too. My boys are 3 and 5 and think its cool. I will say it is definitely not for kids younger than 3 if they are still putting stuff in their mouths, as the pieces are kind of small. Overall, though this product has so many great features that I don't see getting bored with it anytime soon!
Pros: Sturdy plastic parts (tested by my 3 yr old) have fallen on the floor, off the table, been dropped onto tile, etc... and held up well. A variety of ways to sort the fruit using the assorted paper disks in the bottom of the pie sections: colors, fruit type, number of items, shapes. Tweezers provide great fine motor practice for developing handwriting skills. Social skills practice by learning to take turns together. Can be used for dramatic play (every time we were done playing the "game" DD would rush the pie off to her play kitchen to "bake" it in her oven.) I've also borrowed some of the produce pieces to use in a garden themed sensory bin at home.
Cons: Many, many, many small parts; would be inappropriate for any child who is still tempted to put small colorful candy looking objects in their mouth.
