Our 5yr old is TOTALLY into animals and wanted an eco-friendly, animal rescue birthday party. So we had a travelling zoo come visit during his party while she educated the kids about abandoned or abused exotic animals & insects and for our obstacle course, we hung a disc swing from a tree and placed toy alligators on the ground for the kids to 'swing over the alligator swamp', taped pictures of Go Diego Go's BO-BO brothers on empty plastic bottles and had them bowl with a soccer ball to knock them down. The HUGE hit (besides the zoo lady and animals) was this Giraffalaff Limbo. We had kids from 4-8yrs old excited to play this game. Unfortunately this was too small for the 7 and 8yr olds as they kept knocking the limbo bar off but the younger kids from 4-6yrs old LOVED it and played it over and over again. It worked exactly like it was supposed to and prompted a lot of smiles, laughs and giggles. There is a button that you push on the bar, then someone else spins the arrow and tells the crowd which sort of walk you have to try to do under the bar...ie: backwards walk, crab walk, crawl, etc. I still chuckle at the thought of my little one doing his 'crab walk' and 'bird walk'...for his crab walk, he had pinchers for his hands and fingers and simply walked under, all the kids flapped their arms for the bird walk...some chirped, one jutted his neck out like a chicken...it was the cutest thing.
It SEEMS like the poles will break at some point because they are made with that hard type of plastic but so far, they've been knocked down, used as a toy gun, been stepped on accidentally by (little) kids and SO FAR it's held up but I don't see it lasting much longer due to the type of plastic...it IS loads of fun though and if you can get it at a fair price, I'd say to definitely nab it for a bunch of laughs and giggles. I do wish that it were just a bit taller though so older kids can play along with younger kids so we'd get more use out of it but it's a blast for the younger crowd.
