Cheeky Monkeys Review
Cheeky Monkeys is a fun game where there’s no hanging around as you 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.
My girls and I were lucky enough to be asked to review Cheeky Monkeys by Orchard Games.
What a fun game! We had laughter, tears and cheers in our first game – it was a real family game.
My two daughters, aged 3 ½ and 6 were so excited to have another game from Orchard Toys. We already have a few firm family favourites from their range so we were hoping for the same great quality and entertainment.
Whilst I read the instructions and rules the girls started to pop the cut out pieces from their holder. We set up the monkey’s tree and placed all of the monkeys on the floor in front of us. The aim of the game is to collect as many bananas as possible. The monkeys all hold different amounts of monkeys and you can steal each others monkeys!
As we took turns in the game, spinning the spinner and either taking a monkey from the pile, or having to leave our monkey in the pool we had so many laughs! The girls both understood the aim of the game and the rules very quickly and were very quick to steal my monkeys!! The game teases them as they think they are winning, then all of a sudden someone steals their monkey with 6 bananas and they realise they could lose! My youngest kept hiding her monkeys ‘You can’t have that one’ and she would try and pass off a monkey with no bananas – sneaky!
On the first game our eldest won, and the youngest cried – it didn’t last long-she won the next game played straight after, and has since beat me several times! I need to try harder to win those bananas!
The game did not fail to live up to our expectations of Orchard Toys-fantastic quality, great fun and educational (the kids didn’t even notice they were doing maths!)
We fully recommend this game to other families.
Cheeky Monkeys (£9.50) is available to purchase from all good toy retailers and from the Orchard Toys website www.orchardtoys.com.
