Great game but something to know.

This game is definitely fun any it was a perfect gift for the little kids. They have fun playing it as a game or just imaginative playing with it.
That being said you cannot play the game in a normal way with 4 people. In order for 4 people to play you cannot complete the recipes. It states you can only have 4 noodles and one of each of the other ingredients on the recipe card. This is incredibly difficult for little children to understand. When they are busy learning to recognize patterns, count and match telling them they can't do those things when 4 people are playing but need to do them when 2 or 3 are is very confusing.
This also means that during imaginative play only 3 children can complete recipe cards (sometimes only 2 depending on the recipes).
To be honest we would have still purchased this game but not for a holiday when it just made it more difficult for several children to play together. We purchased it because 4 children can play but that is not as simple as it sounds.
