Question about Toys
Put two sides of tree trunks on the main trunk and stand it on the base, so that the yelow piece that slides up and down the main trunck piece is on the same segment as the button on the base. Ther should be a small banana that fits in this yellow sliding bit. The top should have a pedistal (banana bunch base) that fits onto the top of the now constructed tree. Push it in until it clips into place. It should be roughly facing forward. The butterfly fits in the this, and the bunches of bananas around it. There are four segments of bananas , ther have numbers on them numbered 1 or 2. The two.s are opposite each other and the ones opposite each other. If you look carefully at them you will see that the bottom of the pieces are slightly differently shaped. According to the diagram the 1's go either side of the seat and the 2's back and front. The seat will lift up slightly for you to do this. (In ours some of the mounts for the banana bunches are broken off but it still works.) the palm tree fits on to a green branch and then in behind the seat with the butterfly in it.
That is the construction. to set it you close the banana bunches and slide the single yeallow banana up until it clidks. (If it is tricky keep holding at the top whilst you press down the button on the base (marked push). The small protrusions at the base of each caterpillar run should now be down. Now you can start the game. Each player should have one head and twelve segments. Each player will build their caterpillar up one of the runners at the side of the trunk. They begin by sliding their head onto the runners of the trunk. There should be a die, with pictures on it. (If not find a normal one and assign each number to correspond to a picture.)
If you throw a:
banana - add one piece (from your pile only) to your catepillar
butterfly add two pieces (from your pile only) to your caterpillar
Pineapple - take one segment from one other player's caterpillar (or their pile) and add it to your caterpillar
palm tree - take two segments from one other player's caterpillar (or their pile) and add it to your caterpillar
crab - take one segment from each other players' caterpillar (or their pile) and add it to your catepillar.
fish - give one of your segments to a player of your choice.
If during your turn you have no segments of your own colour left and you throw a butterfly or a banana you can not add any segments. The turn moves on to the next player.
We usually take segments from another players catepiller (rather than their pile) unless they have no segments (their head always stays on). That way each catepillar grows and shrinks - so it is not obvious who will win. As the catepillars grow one will reach the top and as the head clicks the banana should slide down and the protrusions all around the base now stick up -making all of the other players crash down. (It can get a bit stiff over time). The banana bunches at the same time open and the winner's caterpillar head remains clipped to the top (if he/she lets go the rest of the segments will also slide off). The winner is now a butterfly!!!
We played this a lot with our kids when they were young - and it was one of their favourite games!! Enjoy
