My six year old got a Barrel of Monkeys for Christmas. After dumping them on the table and trying to hook them, we both found it a bit difficult and frustrating and put it aside. And then I recalled similar feelings from my childhood. After reflecting on this, I decided, instead, not to dump them on a hard surface, but to hook them from inside the barrel. This is more fun and the ability to hook more than a very few becomes attainable. My six year old is now having a great time with the monkeys and has been able to hook seven at a time. If you're frustrated or bored--try hooking them from inside the barrel--still challenging (especially the last one!) and much more fun.

The item shown IN THE PICTURE is the original, classic Barrel of Monkeys. I ordered three of them ($21 worth) to use as a prop in an upcoming leadership workshop. Unfortunately, the product shipped was NOT the product shown, the product I needed, or wanted,or expected -- but an inferior substitute product. This may seem trivial and insignificant. And stupid. But what they sent me is completely unusable, as it is not what I need. So now I have to take time and effort out of my busy day to return these for a refund. There's no excuse for any vendor on Amazon (or anywhere online) to show a picture of an item that's different from the actual product they're shipping. That is called deception. Perhaps the intention was innocent, but they're just setting a customer up for disappointment and annoyance. This may seem like a stupid and trivial complaint. But now it's caused a huge inconvenience, and it's costing me in time and effort to now have to return this item, and then go back to the drawing board to try to find what I actually need. It's all just too much monkey business.

The "Barrel of Monkeys" game may be one of the easiest, simplest games ever to be marketed. It consists of a plastic barrel about the size of a grapefruit filled with little plastic monkeys, arms extended and bent. (You've seen them, either in Toy Story, 12 Monkeys, or in your genetic memory. These things have been around forever.) The goal of the game is to pick up a string of monkeys by holding the top one and looping arms together. It's about as complicated as pick-up sticks, and more fun -- after all, it's monkey-based.
The fun of Barrel of Monkeys isn't the game. It's the score of plastic monkeys. Monkeys are inherently funny, plastic loop-armed monkeys even moreso. Consider the price, too: a couple dollars for a whole barrel of monkeys. How can you /not/ afford to buy it?

We searched for red and got green. Oh well, we could live with that. However, there are only 12 monkeys in the barrel. Not enough to do much with and for this much money I expected more.

I didn't even know there was a game involved with this toy before reading the other reviews. The point of a barrel of monkeys isn't to play a game - it's to play with a bunch of monkeys linked arm in arm. My 2 year old son dumps them out and practices cleaning up. We use them to talk about quantity and counting. We tell stories with them. We link their arms and string them around the house (or off my glasses or his hat). It's a barrel of monkeys - don't over think it.

Cheap imitation of the original. I would not recommend this. They are marketed as the original Barrel of Monkeys but these are not them.

If you're looking for the Barrel Full of Monkeys that you had as a kid, this is not it. These are smaller and made of cheaper plastic, and come in weird colors. They work, but will not be nostalgic at all.

If it wasn't for my 3 year-old son I wouldn't have purchased the barrel of monkeys but now we have them and he LOVES playing with them and I admit I love it too. They are exactly how I remember them!
