I took my 6 year old son shopping at Toys R Us to spend his birthday money and he purchased this game. It is regularly $24.99, however, we bought it on sale for $16.99. Just a note, this game is not worth $25.

Set up was pretty simple. You snap the tree trunk into the base, snap on tree limbs & tree top, insert batteries, and it's ready to go.

To start each player gets a frog flipper and 6 of the same colored frogs. You push the tree trunk down, turn the switch for the timer on and you get about 45 seconds to try and flip frogs onto the tree. When time is up, the tree pops up and whoever has the most frogs left on the tree wins. It's a simple game with simple rules.

The problem with the game is that it is nearly impossible to actually get a frog on the tree. They're really fun to flip, but they fly all over the place & if one lands on the tree, it usually falls off as soon as the tree pops.

We have a lot of fun with it, but there's really no way we can play by the rules because at the end of the game, nobody has frogs on the tree.
