Barrel of Monkeys (Milton Bradley)


It was a simple, but engaging concept: A bunch of monkeys lived in a barrel and could be hooked onto each other. Could you hook them all together without breaking the chain? (Probably not – they were likely taller than you.) Could you make them pick something up with their curved arms? How many could you hang off a single monkey? Your kids will enjoy monkeying around with these little primates as much as you did (or at least they will before the monkeys get kidnapped by the dustbunnies under the bed). Today's monkeys come in a larger size than you remember – just right for small hands.

Ages 3-7 years
