Four Carnival Games
1. A frog-flicking dexterity game.
2. A word-creating puzzle using a fishing pole and magnetic letters.
3. A pattern-recognition game using a four-spinner machine.
4. A game where you roll 6 dice attempting to get four of a kind.
All of these games are timed by a music box/spinner in the shape of a carousel at the center of the board. (Adults: You will grow to hate the music. I promise.)
However many elements of a game you finish (each game has a maximum of four) is the number of balloon markers you get to stick into your vehicle -- fill your vehicle and win. That's it.
Fun for Adults and Kids
My boys go in waves (yes, inadvertent aquatic metaphor) about playing this one. It stays in the closet for four to six weeks and then comes out on a regular basis for two or three weeks. My oldest (who is almost seven) will occasionally pull it out and play with it on his own... so it has a pretty high "toy factor" as well as being an enjoyable game.
