3 Games Your Kids Can Play on the Lil Monkey Dome Climber

Getting kids off the couch and away from a device can be a struggle for most parents. Playing outside stimulates children in so many ways. Physically, they are more active running around the yard. For creativity and cognitive development, playing outside allows kids to use their imaginations to create games and role-play. All of these types of activities are a healthy part of childhood.  

So, when I was offered a chance to try out the Lil MonkeyDome Climber this summer, I was excited for a new way to get the kids interested in playing outside. The Lil Monkey Dome Climber is a brilliantly designed modern-day jungle gym that we easily built in our backyard in under an hour.

I was really surprised how easily the Lil Monkey Dome Climber went together. The instructions were very clear and both of my kids participated in the assembly process.

While we were building the dome climber, both kids were incredibly excited to play it. They were coming up with all the great games they could play. As I listened to their conversations, then later as I watched them play for hours on the dome, I saw 3 great games kids can play using this updated version of a classic playground fixture.

Game #1: Role-Playing Pirates and Princesses

I’m pretty sure my two minions can figure out a way to play Pirates and Princesses on any toy. On the Lil Monkey, the flag marker (used for the interactive app) became their ship’s flag as they assumed their respective pirate and princess roles. One climbs to the top to play look out while the other swings around the dome pretending to explore the ship.

Role-playing on the dome has limitless ideas – just let your kid’s imaginations run wild.

Game #2: Classic Tag

Pirates and princesses quickly turned into a classic game of tag that required they stay on the dome without touching the ground. While a simple task for my oldest, watching my youngest maneuver around the bars, climbing up and down, was a task of coordination and balance that can be more difficult for a four year old. The game got them moving quickly racing around the dome.

Game #3: Monkey in the Middle

As they were winding down their 2 hours on the dome, I saw the game of monkey in the middle emerge where one stood in the middle – like a caged animal – trying to catch the other one who is climbing around the outside.

I’m thankful my kids play so well together. I enjoy watching their imaginative games evolve as they play with each other. But, the Lil Monkey Dome Climber brought out a new level of interaction that I hadn’t seen in a while. This is a great toy for any family with young kids. Lil Monkey is designed for ages 3-6. The sturdy plastic design works well as an outside toy or could be set up in a playroom for active indoor play. Once assembled, the design is incredibly sturdy as both of my children were able to climb and swing on it at the same time.
