With all of the high tech toys on the market today, kids can still have fun with toys and games that have been around for years. Barrel of Monkeys is a great example of a toy and game that kids love to play. It is easy, simple, and inexpensive. Kids will enjoy playing this favorite with their parents, friends, or by themselves.
You can challenge your friends to see who can connect the most monkeys. You can also play the game by yourself. You try to link as many monkeys by their arms without touching them. It may sound easy, but it can be a challenge. The person who can link the most monkeys wins the game. The game has replay value, too. Try to beat your old record when you play again.
You can just play with the monkeys. The game just adds another fun way to enjoy the monkeys. In fact, there may be some people who didn't even know there was a game you could play with this toy.
Barrel of Monkeys is a classic and is still a game/toy that kids love. Sometimes the most simple game or toy wins the attention of a child's imagination. At under $10, Barrel of Monkeys are a good choice for an inexpensive gift. The monkeys and the barrels come in a variety of colors. Buy a few different ones to really have some fun.
Let your kids make up their own game using the monkeys. If you have different colored monkeys, you may have to make a pattern to win the game. When children come up with game rules, there is no telling what you may have to do to win the game. It could be a fun experience and one they will not soon forget.
Barrel of Monkeys is a toy/game that has been around for a while but still remains popular. You can find it on the store shelf practically anywhere. It is nice to know that in this high-tech world, something as low-tech as Barrel of Monkeys is still relevant.
