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!

    I purchased this for my 3 year old granddaughter when she was sick and I wanted something for her to do that would keep her quiet. It was perfect and she loves to build different things with the colorful zoo animals and clowns. She loves to play with her Lego pieces and this gives her something just a little different to put together.

    Great Learning Game
    Posted 4/9/2011 by KATHRYN

    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.

    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.
