Piling penguins takes some great balancing skills. Take a penguin and put it wherever you want on the iceberg. Sounds simple, but as more penguins are placed on the iceberg by all of the other players, it gets pretty tricky ! If any penguins fall while a player is trying to put a penguin on the iceberg, that player must take all of the fallen penguins. The first player to put all of his or her penguins on the iceberg wins the game. Penguin Pile Up teaches careful planning, and cause and effect. Angel’s Toy Barn in Greensburg, Pa., told TDmonthly that “… for preschoolers, Ravensburger’s Penguin Pile Up does well.”
“Ravensburger quality is what sets this  product apart.  Everything we make adheres to the world's highest toy  quality standards making all Ravensburger products ideal for the specialty toy  market,” shared Phil Aberbach of Ravensburber. Launch date: 1990.

TDmonthly Review:

What Is It?
´s Penguin Pile-Up is a fun new twist to games such as Topple because, instead of colorful disks, the game uses the most loveable Antarctica animal: penguins! Players attempt to balance their penguins on the shifty iceberg without making any of them fall into the “icy water” below. The game comes with a game base, iceberg with flag, 24 penguins and game rules.

What We Thought
Penguin Pile-Up is a great game to play alone or as a group. It involves concentration and balance that would challenge even the most coordinated of adults. Penguin figurines do require assembly, but this is also an amusing activity to do with the entire family before play.

Why They´ll Want It
The stacking game is tons of fun, and it’s even better with penguins!
