Product Description

Product Description

An interactive children's game, Jolly Octopus features Jolly, a happy and ticklish battery-operated octopus who sits atop his stash of colorful crabs. Players try to grab the crabs with the tongs provided, while Jolly does his best to stop them with his tricky, moving tentacles. The first player to collect all their crabs wins.

Jolly Octopus - an interactive children's game.

Interactive children's game for 2-4 players ages 4 and up.
Battery-operated game featuring a ticklish octopus, who moves his tentacles as players try to grab the crabs from his stash.

Grab the crabs but watch out for Jolly's moving tentacles!
Grab the Crabs
Jolly Octopus is geared to 2-4 players as young as 4. The game features a smiling and ticklish, battery-operated octopus named Jolly, who rests on top of a collection of colorful crabs. Players must collect one of each of the differently-colored crabs (red, blue, yellow and orange) by attempting to grab them with the enclosed tongs while avoiding Jolly's moving tentacles. If a player touches one of Jolly's tentacles while trying to grab the crabs, Jolly laughs, and it's the next player's turn. Jolly Octopus features two speed settings to double the challenge. The game requires 3 AA batteries (not included).

Interactive and Colorful Fun for Preschool Kids
Jolly Octopus entertains children as it helps them to learn a range of social and educational skills such as color recognition, counting, turn-taking and patience. Since they must use tongs to snatch the crabs from under Jolly's perch, all players get to practice and reinforce fine motor, hand-eye and general coordination skills. No reading is required to play Jolly Octopus, providing an opportunity for children of various ages and abilities to join the game. Jolly Octopus provides positive enforcement - laughter - to players who accidently touch Jolly's moving tentacles. Because there is no beep, buzz or other negative sound when players touch Jolly's tentacles, players learn to deal with mistakes in a positive way.

Two Speed Settings Extend Appeal and Life of the Game
Jolly Octopus is a battery-operated, interactive game that brings children of various ages together for positive social interaction. The game offers two speeds of play to further sharpen everyone's coordination, timing and motor skills. The more challenging setting enables the game to be enjoyed by older players, extending the appeal and life of the game.

What's In The Box?
1 playing device (Jolly Octopus), 20 crabs in four different colors (red, blue, yellow and orange), 1 pair of tongs, 1 set of instructions




From the Manufacturer

Grab the crabs but watch out for my moving tentacles. Jolly is hanging out with his coloful crab friends.

Be the first to collect all your colored crabs to win. Two speed settings offer double the challenge.

We bought this for my 3 1/2 year old. It really is not as fun as it might appear. The crabs are awkward to grab with the tweezers and tricky even for an adult. Its also tedious to put the crabs into the "cracks" in the right position. Another annoyance is once you assemble the octopus you cannot dissamble (without possibly breaking the tentacles) and hence it does not fit back in the box. My son did enjoy seeing it spin and the tentacles moving (and also making it laugh when he touched them) but as far as playing the game its very lacking. Hope this helps.

The game is hard to assemble. After play it can not be stored in box unless arms are removed. The game does not respond very well when the arms are touched. It does not hold the interest of the children. I would NOT recommend this game.

We bought this for my 4year old to give him something else he can do on his own, its just right for that! He enjoys trying to get the little crabs. However the only thing i don't like about it. If you want to store it in the original box you have to take it apart every time and its not the easiest to snap the legs on and off. Adult set up help every time. Its really not that big of deal anyway.

It looked like this would be a fun game but it died after only a few times of play. There was only a 30 day return policy so it was definitely not worth the price.

I have a 5 year old and a 3 year old - they both thoroughly enjoy playing this game. Placing the crabs back in so that they can be grabbed back out again does take a bit of effort, but it's not to the point where it becomes a nuisance. Unlike another reviewer, I removed the arms with ease and it fits perfectly in the box. The level of difficulty is a little high, so just have patience and most importantly, fun :o)

My 4 1/2 year old enjoyed trying to pick the crabs with the tweezers. We weren't playing to get particular colors but simply trying to get the crabs without making the octopus giggle. We played once and enjoyed it. One nuisance is that you need to partially disassemble the game to put it back in the box. I think it will get continued use but for only a short burst of time.

My 3-year old loves the toy and has learnt the art to hold on to the tongs. She is able to collect the crabs with ease after about 5 months. Its fun to see her play along with family and friends.
