SOURCE: i need the instructions for

Where to begin? How about the board design and its effect on the game objectives. The game requires the completion of two conditions for a win: you must have collected four separate tokens and placed four plastic monkeys on top of the large bed in the center of the board. You accomplish this by spinning a dial on a cardboard wheel and advancing 1-6 spaces along a rectangular track, landing on either an image featuring one of the four tokens or a "monkey space" which allows you to place 1-3 monkeys on the bed. There are a couple of issues here - the board is designed in such a way that, with one or two exceptions, you will always land on the same space every time you spin a '5.' In other words, if you just collected the "teeth brushing" token, spinning a '5' on your next turn will bring you to the next "teeth brushing" token on the board. If you spin another 5 on the following turn, the same thing will happen...and so on and so forth. This doesn't sound like too big of a problem, until someone spins '5' four times in a row, effectively missing three consecutive turns, as advancement in and of itself doesn't really achieve much.

This is further compounded by the fact that monkeys can be knocked off the bed, in a manner similar to some other classic games. At the end of each player's turn, that player must press a button on the bed, and every few turns the mattress will bounce up, knocking a few monkeys back off the bed. This can be very frustrating under the right conditions, and can greatly extend the length of the game if it manages to keep victory out of reach that much longer for all players. It gets worse the more players you add to the game (up to a maximum of 4). It isn't much fun for anyone when a player spins 5 a couple of times in a row and then proceeds to knock all of his or her own monkeys off the bed (happens more often than you might think).

Perhaps the worst part of the game for younger players is keeping them on track throughout their turn. Most games for very young children are set up so that a turn has two steps...three at most. Generally speaking, you roll something or spin something, and then either move your piece and react to that movement or simply react to the result of the spin/roll. In Five Little Monkeys, the child must spin the wheel, move the monkey, place monkeys on the bed OR collect a token, press the button on the bed, and then collect any of their own monkeys that have fallen if the bed sprang up this turn.

good luck!

What are the rules?


Place one monkey for each player on the starting square. The other five monkeys for each player start in front of the players.
  • Place one monkey on the bed at the beginning of your turn. University Games recommends the youngest player start, followed by the next youngest, and so on.
  • Flick the spinner to choose randomly the number of spaces to move. Move your monkey that many spaces on the game board.
  • Perform the indicated action on the game board. The actions include bathing, dressing in pajamas, teeth-brushing and going to bed. Act out the actions similar to charades. Once the action is completed, place the corresponding action token in front of you. If you land on an action space you already have a token for, perform the action and the rest of the steps as usual, but do not take a token.
  • Place one monkey on the bed at the end of your turn. If you landed on a space with a picture of monkeys and a number instead of an action, place the number of monkeys indicated on the bed. If you do not have that many monkeys left, put all your monkeys on the bed.
  • Press the red bedpost to end your turn. Pushing the bedpost not only indicates the end of your turn but it also triggers a random action. Occasionally, the bed will shake. If your monkeys fall off, put them back in front of you. If they fall over but do not fall off the bed, set them up right again.
  • As you move around the game board, if you pass the start square, place another monkey on the bed. Repeat steps 2 through 5 until someone has all four action tokens and a minimum of four monkeys on the bed, winning the game.

    I am on forest temple level andhave to get that gale boomerang and i know you have to defeat an boss to get it, but which room is the boss in?


    You don't have to defeat the boss to get it, you need to defeat the baboon monkey creature. You'll need to save some monkeys from their cages and head to the biggest room with all the doors and go to where the baboon took down the bridge. Now you can cross the gap using the monkeys and get to the room where you can fight him for the Gale Boomerang. He's in the room labeled #10 on the map.

    Wii got find for monkeys which are the kid fund all but one


    There are a lot of monkeys! If you look at your dungeon map, there should be a symbol indicating where the monkeys are, I think it is a little red cage but I don't quite remember. You might need the compass for it to show, so make sure you open all the chests and check all the rooms.
