Coocoo the Rocking Clown just loves to juggle, but his big curved green shoes make him wobble and keep throwing him off balance. The kid who can help him juggle the most balls without making any of them fall, wins. For 1 to 6 players, this all-wooden game takes approximately 10 minutes to play. It includes one wooden rocking clown, 24 wooden balls and instructions. The game was launched in February 2006.

TDmonthly Review:

What Is It?
Coocoo the Rocking Clown is a colorful all-wood rocking clown who balances colored wooden circles on his arms and head. Kids are challenged to add as many “balls” to Coocoo’s arms as possible, without throwing him off balance. The game includes one wooden rocking clown, 24 wooden balls and instructions.

What We Thought

Judging by the reactions of the kids we showed Coocoo, it’s a great toy! Even though the age grade recommends 3 and up, even the 1-year-old was fascinated (although she didn’t actually understand how it worked!). And the adults liked it, too. The concept is so simple, that you don’t even need the included instructions. One father who looked at it said, “It improves eye-hand coordination; develops kids´ intuition for physical balance and requires thinking and planning.” He especially liked that the playtime was short, the game could be replayed multiple times, and that it takes up very little space.

Why They’ll Want It
It’s nicely made, fun to play and it’s a great kids’ room decoration, too. Kids will want it because it’s an easy game that’s resolved quickly. Parents will appreciate its quality, ease of use, and the fact that it’s cute enough to not need storage. Just let Coocoo rock on the shelf!
