Description

Building on the tremendous success of Suspend, the new Junior version brings this blockbuster balance game to younger kids with brighter colors, lighter pieces, and a brand-new spinner. Game play is easy: Simply set up the frame, spin the spinner, and balance the color-coded pieces to create an incredible hanging structure. Race against your opponents to be the first to run out of pieces—but watch out: One wrong move and the whole structure could fall! This thrilling game is perfect for young players—there is no reading required, and the skills to succeed grow with every game. Kids learn how to balance and counterbalance, take smart risks, and foresee consequences, all the while having lots of fun! For 1-4 players.

My 4 year old played this over and over. He did not grow tired of it quickly like so many other games. Each time we played it was like a new game because if the numerous ways to hang the rods. I highly recommend this game.

Fun game! The whole family enjoys playing together! A little tricky for the 2 year old, but being mister independent, he insists on playing with his big brothers, and Dad & Mom! Highly recommend!

Not for younger kids

Keri - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
The package says for kids 4-12 but I (an adult) find it challenging. It frustratingly difficult for kids. I enjoy though and have brought it out for play against other adults.

Both 7- and 9-year old play it with delight, and grandma likes to make sculptures with it when they aren't using it. One complaint: wooden connector lacked the hole for inserting top rod, had to drill it ourselves.

Thank you Customer Service!! This came with 2 pieces missing (poorly packaged from the factory), so I called Customer Service and they were very responsive and quick to send a whole new game and missing spinner. I have dealt with customer service in many different companies over the years and can honestly say that this response was the best ever. Luckily I was able to give them the quality control number on the packaging (a reminder not to toss it until you have checked out the product) so that they are now able to find out if this was a one time issue or the start of a bigger issue. My granddaughter (age 5) is ecstatic and loves the game. I will definitely buy from Melissa & Doug again and will tell others that Melissa & Doug is the best company to deal with in standing behind their products.

DJ - 5 years ago, Verified purchaser
This game is fabulous. My entire family enjoys this game. My daughter (4) has a little bit of trouble hanging some of the more difficult pieces (the ones that work best balanced between two other pieces). My son (10) enjoys this and so do my husband and I. Its a great game for coordination, problem solving, and physics. The game is not too long for even a 4-year-old. The pieces and the storage tube are the good quality that you would expect from Melissa and Doug and the value for the price is great.

EXCITED GRANDDAUGHTER

My 3 1/2 yr old granddaughter figured this out right away and had a great time playing with her dad, uncle, and me. I can see her choosing this game, not just because of the challenge and excitement, but because it is a game that the 'adults' will play too. She loves sharing and we all love to see her excitement.
