Barrel of Monkeys

Part cliché, part classic game, Barrel of Monkeys does its best to live up to the promise: "More fun than a barrel of monkeys." Created by Lakeside Toys in 1966, the game was conceptually simple but could take hours to master. Inside each barrel are 12 plastic monkeys with easily hooked, S-shaped arms. Players try to hook all of the monkeys together, using only that first monkey to form one long chain.
