Zipperoos by Wiggles 3D Inc. is sure to be a welcome addition to your child’s game collection this upcoming holiday season. Available in Monkey or Frog, Zipperoos combine portable game and the fun of a plush animal in the same toy.
Inside the zipper of Monkey’s Wild, which is located on the back of each character, are 63 circular cardboard pieces. Each has a picture of an animal on the chip.
You spread out all the chips on the table. Players take turns by either taking a face-up chip or flipping a face-down chip (taking it if it’s one they need). Each player can only keep three chips at any time. If you take a fourth chip, you must return one and leave it with the animal facing up. The first person to collect 3 sets of 3 matching animals wins. Monkeys are a wild chip, so they will match with any animal you need them to.
The game is age-appropriate, and moves along quite quickly, allowing for multiple plays. For a longer game, you can try collecting four or five sets. Recommended for children age four and up, the game provides a great deal of educational opportunities as well, such as advanced thinking, decision-making, color recognition, hand/eye coordination, and problem-solving.
My daughter who is just shy of 3 enjoyed pairing the animals into different sets, which helps her build her memory and recognition skills.
We didn’t play the game as instructed, but more as a single player mode-matching game, which she loved. Of course- the monkey appealed to her as much as the game, which she now calls- The Monkey Game.
Each Zipperoos plush has a zippered pouch in its back, making clean up simple and easy. Children can store their new game inside their animal friend.
Board games such as Zipperoos are excellent for a child’s cognitive development. Children learn best when they are engaged and having fun.
