      Comments about Mini Muffin Match Up:

      I have used the mini muffin matchup game in both the public pre-k classroom setting as well as in my own homeschool setting. I love this game because it truly is a game that can grow with the child. For a 2-3 year old you can use this game to work on sorting colors. As a child processes into K4 you can use this as a counting game as well as matching. You can take the game aspect out as the child ages and use this for a grade school child. With my oldest daughter who is now 6 and in 1st grade we are still using the muffins for her on a daily basis as a math manipulative. She is a visual leaner and having the muffins in place truly helps with visualizing her problems. This is a high quality product. Made wonderful and has lasted us for two years now with no issues.

        I gave this as a Christmas gift to my 3 year old. Dispite getting many other more fancy items, he was very drawn to this toy. My five year old is enjoying it as well. Overall, it seems very well made, except the scooper is a bit flimsy. I also like that there are so many different ways to play. I would have given it five stars except I think it should come with two scoopers.

        I highly recommend this set if you have a child in Pre-K or Kindergarten! My boys (almost 2 and almost 4) have so much fun playing with it. We received it for a blog review and I have actually been surprised how much they have played with it and learned from it. We use it in our homeschool lessons as well. Great quality, and cute. Fantastic set!

            Our four kids have really enjoyed the Mini Muffin Match Up. Made with sturdy construction, the Muffin Tin should last forever. The colors on the Mini Muffins are bright and fun. Even our 2 year old is learning to sort by color with this set. I love the open ended possibilities this set allows us in terms of learning and even free play. Plus, the kids love the Squeezy Tweezers that is included! Overall, really great product and we love it. *I received a sample in exchange for an honest blog post.

            Great Multi-level toy/game

            By Cassandra The So Cal Coupon Mommy

            from Beaumont, CA

            Comments about Mini Muffin Match Up:

            This is a fun game/toy to help your little one develop a multitude of math skills. In addition to math skills this game also encourages color recognition, matching and more.

            This item comes with a pair of dice, which feature colors and numbers (0–6), Squeezy Tweezers™ (which are awesome and offering the perfect size for little hands, and perfect for little ones to pick up the mini muffins), you also receive 1 muffin pan, 60 mini muffin counters, 12 double-sided sorting-circle inserts, and Activity Guide.

            As you can see from the photo above the Squeezy Tweezers™ are amazing and so cute. They help your little one easily pick up the mini muffins and be able to move them into the muffin pan.

            The mini muffins themselves are super adorable. I love all the colors that they come in, and how many you receive with this set. The muffin pan is super cute and a perfect way to make this set really a must have.

            My daughter and I had a lot of fun playing this game. I would suggest this game for anyone school or kindergarten. The sooner that you work with your child on counting, colors, adding, subtracting and more the stronger their foundation will be for the future.

            My daughter loves that this toy offers her the ability to free play but we can also use it for a structured games. The activity guide is great.

            Mini Muffin Match Up {sent to us to review} comes with a high recommendation from me and I think is totally worth the price for what you get. Just the small muffins alone are awesome for so many things. The addition of the tray, the grabber, the disks and dice make it even better! If you are looking for a new versatile learning toy for early childhood, this would be a great option. There is so much versatility with this toy, free play and structured games are both options.

              Comments about Mini Muffin Match Up:

              The Mini Muffin Match Up is perfect for preschool and up. It helps to develop so many math skills as well as some fine motor development. The set contains a muffin pan with easy grip rubber handles, 60 mini muffin counters, 1 squeezy tweezers, 2 foam dice (1 with colors and 1 with numbers), 12 double-sided sorting circle inserts, and activity guide. The set can be used for sorting by color, counting, and simple math problems. The dice can be used to make it into a fun game of how many of the mini muffins or what color you get. Or you can roll both dice and decide to get that number of that color. The squeezy Tweezers are a fun way to work on fine motor skills while picking up the mini muffins. This can be used with a group or individually.

              My 5 year old is past sorting by color or counting. But he has started addition in kindergarten. The Mini Muffin Match Up can be used to help him with addition problems. We can use his math problems and place the number of mini muffins in each cup and then add them together to get what the answer is. We also made up some of our own problems by rolling the dice and using those numbers for math. My son rolled the color and number dice to find each number and then added them up to get the answer. He had fun making his own problems and using the tweezers. He can always use more fine motor practice. The little sorting circle inserts are fun to place in the cups and guide you to placing the correct color or number in each cup.

              The muffin pan and the mini muffins are well made and will last a long time.

              Cartridge Comparison Guide
              • Cartridge Types
              • Ink & Toner Basics
              • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
              Cartridge Type
              Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
              Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
              Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
              Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
              What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
              Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
              Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
              Material Liquid ink Dry powder
              How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
              Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
              Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
              Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
              Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
