Product Description

Product Description

3 years and up. A simple balancing game where you place beans in a pot. If the beans drop the game is over. No reading required. 2-4 players.

Amazon.com

After a grownup snaps this smiling red plastic bean pot together, it stands 5 inches tall. The trick is for two to four young children to drop beans onto the pot's lid, one by one, without spilling them. The more beans there are, the more care they must take. If--well, actually, when--they upset the balance of the pot, they spill the beans. And naturally everyone squeals and has a good time. The first person to get rid of all their beans is the winner. This is a fun game for young children, and no reading is required to play, but be sure to keep those beans out of reach of kids who are still apt to put things other than real food in their mouths. --Rebecca Hughes

Customer Reviews

Great game for little kids.
Taylor
You balance the pot and place beans on the top until it tips and if you caused it, you get the beans.
JJCEO
All of the kids had fun but the beans seemed to spill very easily, making for a fast game.

I agree with the previous reviews. When you first play with the toy, it's boring because it tips after 10 or less beans are used. However, this problem is easy to solve. Before placing the tray on the pot, place some coins in the bottom of the pot. The weighted pot allow the child to place more beans on top. Once we weighted the pot, our three boys had a lot more fun with the game. Now, they get excited as they watch the beans pile up, and when the pot spills it's much more fun to see a large amount of beans topple over than just 10 or less. My three older boys (ages 2-5) really enjoy playing with the game now. In addition, it's a game that they can play without help from an adult which is nice. For the price, it's definitely worth the investment.

Unfortunately it takes very few beans before you "spill the beans". Each player gets about 25 - 30 beans to start the game, but every game my son (3 years old) and I play, we end up spilling over at about 10 beans total. So the game doesn't last long, which takes most of the fun away. And my son is not learning much about balancing things. Even when I've tried to play alone (and I am knowledgable as to how to balance the pot), I still can't get many beans on before it spills.

We really, really do not like this game. It is boring and doesn't work very well. The beans slide off the top with very little tilt and once it does tilt, it stays there. The only redeeming quality is that you can use it for counting. ...

I purchased this for my home daycare to play with. We opened it today and tried it out for awhile. I had 2 & 3yr olds and 9 yr olds playing with it. All of the kids had fun but the beans seemed to spill very easily, making for a fast game. I think the concept is great and the kids were quick to learn where to put the beans to make it lean back the other way. But I wish it took longer to spill so they'd have more of a chance to stack up those beans and problem solve. I'm hoping with time they'll get better at it so the fun level increases.

We've only had it a day so I can't really rate the durability. I don't think it'll take a beating, but if we're careful it should last a long time.

I remember this game from when I was a child. I recently bought this game for my son who just turned four. He absolutely loves it and wants to play it all the time. It does get a little boring after a while for an adult because you have to keep going until someone runs out of beans. Also, I read the other reviews and our game doesn't have a problem tipping over with just a couple of beans. I hope everyone else enjoys this game as much as my son.

My son loves this game and asks to play it every day. It is great because we practice counting and taking count. The pot is light and does tip over pretty easily but it is fun to just start over and practice more counting.

this game has been so much fun but we had to add a weight to the bottom of the pot to make it not tip over so quickly. We also added dice (just one) so that the kids have to put in a different number of beans each time. Otherwise, it takes too long and the older kids get bored.

This is definitely not the same game I remember playing as a kid. This version is cheaply made junk. The bean pot is made of two thin plastic halves that snap together. It's supported by "hands" that are even flimsier and make the pot tilt in one direction before you even put any beans on it. Even if you try to load up the opposite side of the pot to balance it, it stays tilted and the beans all end up sliding down to that side and off the pot. My 4-year-old daughter and I tried playing it several times until we both got frustrated with it. Now it just sits boxed up in a corner of her playroom, because whenever I ask my daughter if she wants to play it she says "No, it's no fun".
