Ramba Samba

$ 49.95 SRP


Carnival in Rio Caterpillo! Ramba Caterpillar prepares herself for the night of her life. She wants to shake a leg, her hairstyle is perfect — only one thing is missing: the right outfit! All of Ramba’s costumes are in a clothes bag. Can you help her find the matching clothes so that she arrives at the party in time? Children Ages 4 and up can feel and form while playing Ramba Samba. Here, players develop their tactile abilities while playing the game. The friendly caterpillar has lots of colorful dresses in her sack, just right for the big carnival. Sadly, Ramba can’t remember any more which clothing articles fit which parts of her long body. The player who can feel which ones fit the fastest is the winner. In Ramba Samba, the name of the game is shapes, feel and a happy little caterpillar with clothes made of lots of colorful wooden pieces. The game board shows the entire length of the caterpillar Ramba. Her carnival costume (wooden pieces) are hidden in a large cloth bag. They fit on the game board in pre-determined ways. Each turn, the player simultaneously reach into the bag to find the next matching puzzle piece. The winner is the player who places the most pieces. Ramba Samba demands tactile awareness in a fun-filled way. Because only the player who can feel the matching pieces fastest will win.
