Tumblin' Monkeys is another game that we've picked up a car boot sale for the bargain price of £1. We did have a problem with this one though because it had no rules or instructions with it and we had no idea what the proper way of playing was so we made our own until we found out! The game is aimed at children who are 4 years and over and I think this is quite accurate. Tumblin' Monkeys is made up of 4 main parts, some coloured sticks, little monkeys & a coloured dice. You need to slot the two parts of the tree trunk together before placing it onto the base and then adding the tree leaves onto the top to keep it together. The idea is then to put two of ...

What could be more festive than a game involving a plastic palm tree? It may only be day three of the school holidays but we're already running out of easy games to play and are turning to that require the assistance of an adult to set up. Tumbling Monkeys may only have four major parts but even as an adult they're quite awkward to put together. The two pieces of the palm trees trunk snap together and this is then inserted into the green island base with the palm fronds attached to the top to keep it all together. It sounds remarkably simple but as you're inserting the trunk into the base it has a tendency to spring apart and it takes several attempts to put it all ... Read the complete review

My son was bought this game by his Grandma at a car boot sale for 50p and he loves it! When you open the box you find a palm tree which comes in 4 pieces - a base, 2 sections of trunk, and the tree top. You have to hold the 2 pieces of trunk together and push them into the base, then attach the tree top. Once the tree is put together you push sticks through the base, forming a grid to hold the monkeys at the top of the tree. The sticks have to be put in in a specific order - with 2 of each colour at each level. The monkeys are then put in the top of the tree and are held by the sticks. Players take it in turns to roll a dice to see ... Read the complete review

Tumblin Monkeys is a fun alternative to Kerplunk. I have both games but I prefer this one as it has a fun theme and it's a lot quieter when the monkeys drop. The game includes a palm tree, sticks, monkeys and a dice. The palm tree is spilt in four which makes it easier to store in the box. There is a beige plastic sand base, green plastic palm leaves which hold the tree trunk together and a tree trunk in two halves which is made from a see through yellow plastic. These go together pretty easily but the children I have played it with often struggle to put it together. When the tree is in place there are red, green and blue ... Read the complete review

Here is one of many of the ops that I will be writing about the gifts me and my family recieved over the festive period. I don't know if any of you have heard of the game in the past but you may well have heard of a game that is very similar. Which one is that I hear you say? Well, it's Kerplunk. Still dont know which one I am talking about? Do you remember the one with the tall tube with holes in, sticks and marbles? Penny dropped? Good! Well if you like Kerplunk you will love Tumblin Monkeys (No its not a typo!). The principals of this game are exactly the same as Kerplunk, you poke the sticks through the tube (in this case its a ... Read the complete review
