Zimbbos is a first learning game that’s gigantic fun under the big top! So many irresistible ways to stack & play Zimbbos!
Ten endearing elephants, three balancing beams, two clowns, a lion, bear, and gorilla come together for pyramid building gymnastics and impressive first learning. Splendid good looks. Substantial learning. Heaps of fun.
We’ve seen it. We know. Unpack colorful Zimbbos, and children take in fresh colors. Smiles surface over fun, wooden characters. Careful hands line them up. Children beam in earnest over clever accomplishments in stacking Zimbbos in new ways each time! And, when they're ready to attempt other challenges - the Zimbbos game provides the fun.
Eager kids engage in learning at an advanced level. Taking turns, children roll dice to determine how many elephants may be added to the pyramid. As the elephants move upward so do your child’s skills! Spotlighting abilities in creativity, motor planning, fine motor skills, taking turns, following directions, counting, and reasoning – the game of Zimbbos is a class act!

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 3 years of age.

"This is an interactive toy that utilizes the experience of cause and effect and the laws of balance in nature. There is not a requirement to hear lengthy instructions. This game provides the child great exposure to new experiences and language. We talk about the fulcrum or balance point in the game as well as out- of-balance, right, left, equal weight or equal number, too much or many, not enough, level, slanted, incline, etc."
This well-made wooden game is both durable and versatile. With a few alterations to the rules, the game can be played with a preschooler and a toddler simultaneously. We save this game for family time in order to maximize the learning opportunities. Zimbbos works with colors, numbers, coordination, turn-taking and I'm sure many more.
Very good quality with beneficial science/math educational exposure.

Zimbbos is a colorful, fun game that lets children experiment with balance and equal distribution. I take care of my grandson each afternoon and he loves to play Zimbbos with me and show me what he can do stacking by himself. He is only 4 and I think will follow the rules of the game better after he has had a chance to master some of the balancing rules of nature. His baby sister loves the colors and plays with (chews) the objects as well. I am glad they are large enough so I can let her "play" along with us with no fear of choking.
This is that great toy we go to when we need wind down time or we cannot go outside.
Great game/toy for 5-year-old

My son loves this game. As soon as it arrived he opened it and started "building" with it. He enjoys using it like blocks, as well as playing the game with us. He even likes to just play a free-form "no rules" game. It's fun for adults too. This has been a great toy for occupying him for long intervals.
