product information

Take turns to add cheeky monkeys … until they all fall down. Monkey Business is great game for all the family to play.

Monkey Business is fun game where players take turns to hang cheeky monkeys or gorillas on the tree. Each player spins the dial to see how many monkeys (or big gorillas) to add. Players can add more and more – until all the monkeys fall down into the crocodile swamp. You can hang monkeys by their arms, legs or tails, and count them up to see how many were on the tree. For older children, divide the monkeys by colour, so each player has different coloured monkeys. Once the tree falls, you count the monkeys each player had on the tree, and the one with the most wins. The cheeky little monkey characters in the Monkey Business Game are so friendly that your child can add in some imaginative play to a fun hand-to-eye coordination challenge. This is a great game to play with all the family. Counting monkeys is good counting practice too.

Quick facts:
•Monkey Business Game is a fun family game
•Take turns to hang cheeky monkeys on the tree

Great for your child's development:
Playing a simple game together is a really fun way for your child to learn good social skills, and Monkey Business Game is a great first game for your child. Learning to take turns, remembering how to play and balancing the monkeys on the tree are all useful skills for your growing child. Carefully hanging the monkeys on the branches helps your child develop hand-to-eye coordination and fine motor skills which are so useful for drawing, dressing and writing – and all kinds of play.
