Oh no! Some turtles and whales and starfish are caught in the fishing net! Free them by pulling out the bamboo sticks without releasing the fish. The Pallina Ocean Rescue is the perfect game for parties and family game night. Based on the original Pallina game, but with an oceanic twist, insert the sticks into the holes in the basket until there's a solid web of interconnected sticks, then pour the ocean critters on top. One by one, remove the sticks until the animals come tumbling down. This game comes with the Pallina bamboo basket, 20 bamboo sticks, 16 wooden ocean critters, and a felt mat to play upon. Encourages balance, coordination, strategic thinking, and good sportsmanship. Made with bamboo sourced from environmentally sustainable forests. Durable child-safe paint finish and solid wood construction make this a toy your child will love for years to come.
