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!
A great age for exploring the world around and climbing trees. Eight year olds are smart, resilient and very imaginative. Spy kits and secret agent stuff are very appealing. Or presents that involve setting up traps and alarms. For the more stylish 8 year old, a cool watch is a popular present. Or chalk to colour your hair.
