Monkey in a Ball

Anyone familiar with video games has probably heard of the game “Super ”. If not, it’s a game where these cute little monkeys are running around inside a ball on crazy tracks, picking up bananas and coins as you , trying to reach the goal before time runs out.

You are basically the monkey character, and you have to make sure you get through the levels without the monkey in the ball falling off the edge of the track you’re rolling on. It’s really cute:


It happens to be one of our favorites to play as a family on the Wii – though the Nagger and hubby tend to be a little more on the competitive side. All in good fun, though!

Needless to say, when we were at my dad’s company picnic a few weeks back, there happened to be a giant field with two giant balls to run around in.

Maybe I should refer to them as ‘spheres’…

Naturally my two monkey minions wanted to run around in them, and of course I’m all about the photo op. Little Dude did a stand up job running around in one of those, while a dude guided the sphere across the field and back:


Princess Nagger took her turn and had a great time, too:


She noticed the other guide dude wasn’t hovering and walking back and forth with the other ball – more or less a free-for-all, so she decided to go again, this time without the guide dude supervision so she could race really really fast – you know that need for speed:


With great speed comes the possibility of taking a tumble:


But no worries, as you can see those things are super padded and cushy, so recovery is swift:


Would you run around like a monkey in a ball?

About StacyUncorked

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.

  1. There was a shindig in the park last year at the start of school that had one of those human sized hamster balls. Turbo loved it. Bruiser wouldn’t go near it.

  2. I’ve always thought those look like so much fun. Being the klutz I am, I’m rather fond of the idea of having a soft place to land when gravity takes over. 🙂
