Orchard Toys Cheeky Monkeys - Review!

How cool that there is an Orchard Toys game perfectly named and suited to the monkeys! Very apt then that we were asked if we would like to review it.

"There's no hanging about in this fast paced game Cheeky Monkeys, 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!"
Aimed at children aged 4-8 years, this is also ideally suited to the monkeys ages. Made in Britain it's made to it's usual high standard. Perfect for 2-4 players.
The aim of the game is to be a cheeky monkey and collect the most bananas. My two monkeys need no help at all in being cheeky monkeys. This game was obviously made for them!
Inside the box you will find, a two part 3D tree, 32 monkey cards, 1 pool board, 1 spinner board, a two part plastic spinner arrow and instructions.
Easy to set up, we did so without too much help from the instructions! Teacher tested, Cheeky Monkeys is designed to develop counting skills, reinforce hand-eye coordination and promote strategic thinking.
The quick start guide is ideal when playing for the first time and then the more detailed instructions help each player to decide how to proceed with the game! You can play it safe or take a chance and win more bananas. 
Personally I found the game a little confusing but I'm in the minority as the Daddy and the monkeys got on perfectly well playing it and seemed to know exactly what they were doing! Maybe I had been over thinking things!

As with other Orchard Toys, the pieces fit back safely in the box at the end of play and it's dead easy to set up again and again. 
The monkeys love it and Daddy and I have been roped into joining in the fun over and over! Just £9.50 for hours of fun. 

*We were sent this Orchard Toys game for the purpose of this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
