Refreshing and amusing, this game of balance can be played alone or team up with up to 4 players. You might expect a pyramid of elephants, clowns, lions, apes, and bears to come tumbling down -- and that's half the fun of this stacking game. The other half is building it up while learning balance, counting, colors, and creative problem-solving. A roll of the die tells players how many blocks and balancing bars to add to the pyramid, and their job is to figure out how to add those pieces in a way that keeps the pyramid standing. The player who successfully puts the last block on the stack wins the game, but everyone finishes with a sense of accomplishment and lots of laughs along the way.
