HABA Animal Upon Animal Balancing Bridge Game from Maukilo: Review

Monday, September 26, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Ever since my kids were babies, I've tried to focus on toys and games that are educational as well as fun. We love those made out of wood because of their quality and durability. Not having to worry about BPA plastics, batteries and annoying noises are other reasons why I love wooden toys.

The HABA Animal Upon Animal Stacking Balancing Bridge Game is perfect for a rainy day or family night in. It includes a variety of animals - flamingo, giraffe, panther, bat and iguana - that are on a long journey. There are many animals but only one hanging bridge leading over the four valleys. The crocodile comes to the rescue. Each player gets three secret stacking assignments on their cards. The goal is to pile the animals shown on your assignment cards on the hanging bridge. The player who accomplishes the assignments first wins the game.

My kids had a blast trying to stack the animals. Watching them tumble down and having to start over was just as much fun. The best part is that the whole family can participate in the game. Animal Upon Animal Balancing Bridge is intended for 2-4 players but if your family has more people who want to play, you could have teams and take turns with the assignments. When we had enough of animal stacking, my kids came up with other games we could play with the animals. I love how the kids practice their fine motor skills with this game. Motivating them to stay focused and teaching them to be gracious winners come in handy, too.

Last but not least - the stacking game is made from sustainably managed forests and controlled sources. The animals are painted with non-toxic water based stain. An educational and entertaining game for the whole family that is also eco-friendly? Clearly a winner.
