Our newly 3 and 4 year old girls love this game. Its colorful and cute. Simple to play. Easy for them tonload thr bananas. Not complicated to play. They can actually play all by themselves. Maybe this is good for they younger ones. They haven't been quick enough to catch thr monkey yet. He pops up at random while pulling a banana from the tree. They need to use 2 hands to hold thr tree as they pull out the banana so it is hard for them to grab him that fast. We all just jump cause he always surprised us. Its simple fun.

This was a Hit or our Girls!
Have a blast of fun with Banana blast game!
Kids do get a blast of fun with the Goliath Games Banana Blast Game. My grandson loves it. He laughs and laughs when Banana Joe jumps. I enjoy watching my grandson being happy while plays this game.
It is a game designed for one player as well as many. When I am babysitting for my grandson, sometimes he plays the game by himself, but in other occasions I do play with him. When his friends come to visit, then everyone has a blast with the game.
The game is fun to play for a long time because it is a different banana every time that makes Banana Joe jump. So you never can guess which one. The kids don't get bore. That is what keeps them interested in the game.
I feel at ease and peace that is a good fun game not only for kids, but for adults as well.
I used it as a tension breaker between tasks. When I'm stressed, I play a few rounds of Banana blast and that relaxes me. Given my grandson has so much homework, I allowed him to play a few rounds of banana blast when he starts to complaint about the homework. The game is fun, thus, after a few rounds of playing the game, he seems to be more eager to finish the homework, so he can go back to play banana blast.
It is safe fun game that I do recommend!
Must have this game
If you and your kids like to play games, this is THE game to get. It is so fun. It doesn't matter your age. I am 44 and this is one of my favorite games of all times and my favorite to play now with my son. We put this together, which took about 2 minutes, and then played for an hour. The bananas go into the tree really easy, so any age over 4 or so can do it with ease. The monkey can be a bit tricky to get on because you have to put him on just right. But once he fits on correctly, he stays until it is time for him to pop up. The most fun part of the game is when the monkey jumps up. It does not go way up in the air, just far enough up that you can grab it. It is random, so you never know when he will jump up. We were having so much fun playing that we did not realize how much time had gone by. Even the dog was trying to catch the monkey (he caught him once before me or my son did). Pictures show the close up with the bananas in the tree and the monkey on the center and also the dog waiting to try and catch the monkey too. It is definitely a fun game for the whole family. Go get this game, you will realize how much fun you were missing out on once you get it.
Very fun game
This game is a blast! Just as soon as one game is over, they are ready to play another. I recommend getting a small zip lock bag to keep the pieces in. After playing the game, we made a habit of putting all our pieces in the zip lock bag, so we would not lose any of them.
PERFECT game for the whole family to play!
we help children who are in need during the holidays. A 5 year-old disabled boy asked for this as one of his wishes. We ordered it and when it arrived I was truly impressed and will be ordering one for my son as well. The packaging is adorable. The game catches the attention of a child and they can play for hours. The game seems to be a good value for the money.
this game is banana's
This is my daughters favorite game she has gotten so far she seen a commercial for it and wanted it so of course it bought it. Her favorite part is trying to catch that monkey before anyone else does it does not take alot of skill so it is easy to teach to smaller kids which is sometimes a challenge great game.
Perfectly good fun for any age
My 5 year old granddaughter stays with me a lot and I was looking for games that would be easy and that she would enjoy. I purchased several games and we sit at the kitchen table and laugh and enjoy each other's company. Nice distraction from what's going on outside.
Fun Hands Down
I can see how this Banana Blast game by Goliath Games would certainly provide loads of fun. Now the game is for ages four and up, and up to five people can play. The instructions were easily understood and it was quick to get it set up. You do have to place stickers on the dice, and that was the only thing that required a steady head. However all you have to do is follow the well illustrated placements. Children will love how the person that goes first is chosen. Everyone has to jump and the person who jumps the highest goes first. As customary, the game begins in the clockwise direction. The object of the game is to see how many bananas you can pick and keep, building up your banana stash lol. The stickers on the dice tell you how many bananas to pick, an option to offer a banana to another player or steal a banana from the player of your choice. But there is a little clever side to it...you have to keep your attention on Banana Joe (The monkey that comes with the game). Banana Joe might jump up at any time and the person that catches him wins the game if they catch him. You say, oh that's easy enough...NOT...because all players must keep both hands on the table, palms down, excepting when they have to roll the dice or collect bananas. Here's to whole lot of fun with a little exercise to the side. My grandchildren are going to love this game because it's fun...hands down :-).
Banana Blast Game Review
I have had this game for a few weeks now. It has been a winner in our family with our two young boys. They love playing it after school. It is very simple to set up as there is no assembly required. You just simply put all the bananas in the holes and push the monkey down on the little spring in the middle. The only drawback to this game is that it is a little knacky to get the monkey on the spring. Sometimes it clicks on the first try, but sometimes you have to try two or three times to get him to lock into place. Not really a big deal, but just wanted to throw that out there. Other than that, the game is pretty simple, you roll the dice and see if you have to pick one or two bananas. There are two other sides to the dice which kind of adds a twist to the game. You can steal bananas from your competitor or you might have to give some bananas away based on what you roll. It kind of makes the game a little more interesting than just pulling bananas until the monkey jumps. There is also points awarded if you are able to catch the monkey before he hits the table. Overall a great little game to have around the house. Not too many moving parts and everything sticks together in the game board except for the dice, so that helps with keeping up with all those little bananas. Definitely recommend this game to anyone with small children. It is definitely a big hit in our house.
Have fun and teach young ones
I enjoyed playing this game with my younger grandchildren. The thrill of the anticipation of waiting on the monkey to pop up, added a great excitement to this game .This game was easy to play, no difficulties in following the rules, quick setup almost anywhere. It was decided that everyone playing must sit down,because you had more of an advantage of catching the monkey before the others, that were playing if you were standing. This is a good game for young children, the older ones lost interest after about thirty minutes of playing. The only problem we had with this game was holding the tree top down in order to extract the bananas. You would have to hold the tree down with one hand while using your other hand to extract the bananas. It also seemed to me that the monkey always popped in the same direction, just at different times.
