Both Zachary and Simon are little monkeys and love to climb, so we were thrilled to be asked to try out the Lil’ Monkey Dome Climber! This outdoor dome climber comes with a twist – an app that works with the climber and encourages kids to be physically active while correlating with the gadgets that kids play with these days.
We decided to build our climber inside, in our basement, due to the heat outside. The directions were relatively easy to follow and after I figured out what I was doing, the assembly went quickly.
When it was finally ready, Simon couldn’t wait to climb to the top and he was quickly joined by Zachary and even Gabbie as well!
The app that works with the climber allows you to look at the climber through your phone or iPad camera, and you are instructed to walk around the climber to find the banana or other fruits. Here Zachary is trying it out:
This is what the app looks like:
Even without the app, my kids had a great time playing with this climber!
The product combined with the app aids children’s developmental and cognitive skills, in addition to keeping them active and having fun. I am sure they are going to love being creative and playing more with this toy!
