The laws of the jungle are in full-effect with this classic, colorful monkey game.
Each player is given four monkeys with different colored-shirts, and each has to use their respective catapults to fling the monkeys into the plastic jungle tree in the center of the game play. The idea is to get the monkey's curved arm to loop around the hole in leaf-holes in the tree so that he hangs on his own. The first person to get all their own monkeys stuck on the tree is victorious! You can even start to implement strategy as you get better, trying to knock your opponent's monkeys off the tree. With a tree, 2 circles of leaves on tree, 16 monkeys, 4 catapults, plastic bananas to denote round winners, a label sheet, and a set of rules, you'll have hours of fun monkeying around!
Growing stuff is now very appealing. As is making stuff in the kitchen which can be a really fun, joint activity. There is nothing like melting chocolate or making bread to bring out the inner creative. The Rapid Fire Power Popper is one of our top toys and a great present for 7 year olds for when they are being less creative and want to chase their little friends all over the garden.
