What they say: A fun game of chance for all the family. There’s no hanging about in this fast paced game, as players battle to collect the most bananas – but watch out for other players trying to steal them! Players must make strategic decisions by choosing whether to play it safe after their first turn or spin the spinner to either collect or risk losing more bananas!
Children will enjoy hanging their monkeys onto the 3D tree, which adds another fun dimension to this exciting game. As well as teaching basic counting skills, Cheeky Monkeys encourages children to think strategically, interact with others and make decisions.
What we say: “I think most families with young children must have an Orchard Toys game in their household! I know we have plenty and thoroughly enjoy them; the kids can play on their own, making up the rules as they go, or we can sit down and play as a family knowing the instructions are easy to follow and the games fairly quick (meaning no time for the other usual family games arguments over cheating or how unfair it is that so-and-so never wins!).
Cheeky Monkeys was one that I left the children to play alone. I explained the basic rules and off they went! Another bonus of these games is that they are gently, not obviously, educational; in this instance maths and strategical thinking is required.
Obviously shouts of joy when winning, a few whines when loosing and a good half an hour of traditional play ensued. A perfect afternoon and another hit game from Orchard Toys!”
