This is a stacking game like Jenga but way more fun for younger kids. In the game, you stack different wooden animal figurines on top of a large alligator, trying to see how high you can stack them before it all comes crashing down. This game develops your child’s executive functioning skills as they learn they’ll need to be patient and use creative problem-solving in order to get their animals to stack without falling down.
But even when the stack does come crashing down? Giggles all around.
This game is simple enough for young kids to play independently, which is perfect if you need a few minutes to yourself to make an important phone call, take a bathroom break, or sneak a piece of chocolate from your secret stash (I won’t judge).
And unlike some other stacking games for kids that are made with low-quality plastic, these sturdy wooden pieces are made to last. Our copy of this game has lasted through four kids! (Side note: This game is made by the same company who makes Orchard, which my kids also love.)
Note: The manufacturer says this is for ages 4 and up, but according to several other families (including mine!) most 3-year-olds are ready for this game.
From the Manufacturer
Crocodiles, frilled lizards, sheep, toucans and monkeys, hedgehogs, and snakes…you’ll never find such a motley mix of animals in any other game. Who is the most skillful at stacking and will be the first left without any animals?
In this entertaining stacking game, players race each other to be the first to place all their wooden animals upon the animal pile before the other players. A roll of the die tells players how many animals can be placed or whether they can add to the alligator base. This game fosters hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
A true classic, this game is fun for the whole family and a favorite for adult game night too!

This game is an awesome mix of chance via roll of the die, skill, nerve, and steady hands. It's fun and challenging for kids and adults! In our experience, 3-4 year olds can definitely play, but can become easily frustrated and also tend to knock down the animal tower more frequently than if there are only older humans playing. My six year old can fully enjoy the game experience and has the motor skills and patience to play for more than a short time. The animal pieces are well-made. The directions are simple to learn and explain. The quality means this game could easily be played with your grandkids someday. A new classic that I would recommend to anyone with kids ages 4 and up!

This is by far one of our families very favorite games. It's so much fun! Great for all ages and is never the same. Always new strategies of building everytime. I have even played it in a larger group and still just as fun. My 2 year old even enjoys trying to stack the animals on his own.
