This toy probably will have somewhat limited appeal as the kids first get interested in basic math. Their initial response was very positive and I have enough children visiting to make it a worthwhile addition to the toy shelf.

My "pro's", are the kids I tutor and they love it so it works. They ask to work on it, are amused and intrigued by it and most importantly of all, grasp onto the maths lesson almost instantly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really a game, just a toy 10 Jan. 2012
By Weston Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I got this for my 5-year old son. He seems to enjoy it, but it lags behind his other favorites. I think a big problem is that there's no competitive game aspect. It's just a game that makes it easy - and fun? - to do simple math problems. There is no set game plan, just long instructions on ways to introduce math concepts. I contrast this to "Sum Swamp" - a math-based board game that my son just loves: that one teaches math concepts and grammar (x + y = ?) AND has a traditional board game-style competition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for teaching beginning addition and subtraction 13 Dec. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

This is a fun game to teach kids addition and subtraction. My son (4) loves to play with this game on his own, trying to make the monkey's eyes straight, and with me. When playing with me, we try to "trick" each other by putting up multiple groups of bananas and the other one tries to match up with the same amount. There are two each of 1-5, and then one each of 6-10. The packaging is nice too, and you can get all of the bananas back in (they go in numerical order, so its an extra teaching moment while cleaning up) and the monkey in the plastic, and it fits nicely in the box. No lost pieces! My son also likes to sometimes play "catch the bananas" with this monkey, loading the monkey's arms with bananas and then flipping one arm until they all fly into the air. Not my favorite part, but he likes it.

I love games that my child enjoys playing without him realising he's learning. Good quality.

3.0 out of 5 stars This thing has its moments 6 Aug. 2013
By A. Hughes - Published on Amazon.com

Every once in a while the kids want to play with this. I called balancing the monkey "making the monkey happy". So the game is mostly just them messing around and not really doing any math. That all lasts about 5 minutes tops.

However with my 5 year old I am able to get him to focus to the point where he will do simple addition with it, and I will often limit the bananas he gets to use to solve the problem. I honestly think and ipad/android app would be better suited to this.

Overall I'm not hating this purchase, making the monkey happy has had it's moments :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Monkey Mate Math Learning Toy 21 Jan. 2010
By Yvette - Published on Amazon.com

My daughter picked this out of Rainbow Resources' catalog, probably because it involved monkeys!
The game puts together very easily. The monkey is essentially a scale and your child needs to hang bunches of bananas on each of his arms to balance him out. They are perfectly calibrated to make this work every time...as long as both sides equal each other. And that's where the math comes in. My daughter is in first grade and is still learning her tens addition facts, so this toy was helpful and fun. Even her big brothers got a kick out of it. It is not something she would enjoy doing for a long time, as she lost interest...it's more the type of toy to pull out every once in awhile when math is getting boring. It's very durable, attractive and appealing to young children.
