Teach Kids to Respect the Environment with Animalopoly

As a nature and animal lover, I couldn't resist passing up a post regarding an interesting take on an unforgettably classic game. Prepare for a holiday gift idea that not only expands the minds of children, but also instills compassion for the environment. Animalopoly ($~27.99) offers just as much fun as the traditional Monopoly game, but instead of landing on Park Place and picking up Free Parking, you have the chance to get chummy with a few members of the wild animal kingdom. Designed for 2 to 6 players (ages 8 and up), the game features colorful, stimulating imagery and fun facts found on the back of Animal Certificates. With Animalopoly, you exchange the world of real estate and mortgages for the excitement of becoming a caretaker of animals. No need to collect rent from your opponents – players are expected to pay Meal Fees. The main objective of the game is to also collect all of the "4 Elements" necessary for animals to survive – land, food, water, and clean air. Hopefully, you can work your way up to obtaining a Habitat where an animal can live on its own. I personally would love to purchase this game for my nephew (which I found while browsing Eco Express), but sadly, he's too young to appreciate the message…or the directions. But, if you're in need of a unique eco-friendly gift – I highly recommend Animalopoly.
