Tomy Tumblin' Monkeys
Advantages: good fun
Disadvantages: putting it together is a little boring
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 plastic sticks which go in the holes of the tree trunk. They must be placed in one side and out the other but otherwise can go anywhere. Nearing the end of the sticks it gets a bit difficult as there are so many sticks in already but the sticks do bend a little and they find a place eventually.
After spending all that time putting the sticks in they are out in minutes. All the monkeys are put in at the top of the tree and then the game begins.
The monkeys are plastic as well and are nicely detailed. They are brown and have curly tails so they can be caught on the sticks.
The dice is the same size as a regular dice and has red, green and blue circles on.
The first player rolls the dice and takes a stick from the tree of the matching colour. If any monkeys fall onto the sand base they must keep them. This continues with all players taking turns until there are no sticks left.
At the end of the game each player counts their monkeys and the player with the least monkeys wins.
There is a skill needed to get the sticks without the monkeys but it is possible when there is more sticks.
This is a really simple and fun game for young children but could be played at any age.
Summary: a fun monkey themed game
