Pull My Finger Review (Jakks Pacific)

Pull My Finger
What It Is

Pull My Finger, from Jakks Pacific, comes with Mr. Buster the monkey, a base, a spinner, monkey tail and two, count 'em, two monkey butts. Some assembly is required. It's for 2 or more players, ages 4+. Ok, let's cut to the cheese - I mean the chase: this game is all about pulling a monkey's finger until he farts. Players take turns spinning the banana and following its instructions. Pull Mr. Buster's finger and if he rips one, you have been eliminated from the game. The game continues until there is only one player left. Although I love a good fart joke, and welcome any game that celebrates the toot, I found Pull My Finger boring. The game play is limited, and the fart sound itself? Well, it kinda stinks. But maybe that's just me. Young children will probably share a whole lot of laughs with this farting monkey. I'm not sure how much repeat game play there will be, but for the youngest in your family, Pull My Finger is sure to be a "blast."

Is It Fun?
It will be fun for young children.  Anyone much older than 6 or 7 will quickly bore of this game.  
Who It’s For
Game players and monkey-fart fans, ages 4+
What To Be Aware Of
