Product Description

CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

This is the classic skill and action game where players use steady hands and a cool head to remove sticks from below the marbles. Let the fewest marbles fall and you'll win the game.

Ruth and Elliot Handler and Harold "Matt" Matson launch a new company named Mattel out of a garage workshop in Southern California in 1945. The first Mattel products are picture-frames, but Elliott soon develops a side business in dollhouse furniture made from picture frame scraps. Harold Matson soon sells out to his partner, and, encouraged by the success of the doll furniture, the Handlers turned the company's emphasis to toys. "Leadership at Mattel is the ability to develop and communicate a compelling picture of the future that inspires and motivates others to take action. Leaders at Mattel align themselves with Mattel's core values, exhibit leadership competencies and drive for success in their business strategies. In this way, Mattel work's to achieve their vision of being The world's Premier Toy Brands - Today and Tomorrow." Every day as Mattel's 25,000 employees worldwide strive to realize that vision, their leadership team is guiding the way. Some of Mattel's brands include, Barbie, Hot Wheels, Toy Story, Power Wheels, Disney Princess, Disney Fairies, Thomas the tank, Thomas and Friends, Elmo, Sesame Street, Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!, Go Diego Go, and Dora the Explorer.

This game is the bomb! I luv it. We used to play it nearly everyday. We lost it so now we want a new one, only [$]? That's a great price! I can't wait to play it again. We remembered how much we loved it when we went to Wendy's. We got a "KerPlunk" Toy in Krissy's Kid's Meal. We played it several times until realizing that we need another one! Hope that you love this game just as much as we do!

I used to LOVE Kerplunk as a Child growing up in the 80's. I remember sitting at my playroom table, with one, or both of my parents, and waiting anxiously for the marbles to drop on their turn and not mine. I also seem to remember a MUCH BETTER quality product. I believe, the sticks were actually wood, like a smooth ended skewer, in an array of primary colors. The "tower & base" were of a more durable, heavier gauge plastic that didn't topple at the slightest bump. The sticks easily were placed, and didn't bend, or slide out the second you exhaled a deep breath, (which you'll be taking A LOT of while trying not to scream expletives at THIS model), since it takes longer to set up and try to get the sticks to stay put than it takes to play the game! By the time it's set up, and the sticks & marbles are barely in place, my kid is already done b/c it took so long to set up!

Comments about Mattel 1001134 Kerplunk:

This is a class game that I used to play as a kid. However, it's become much cheaper feeling. The plastic casing for the marbles seems like it was made with the cheapest plastic possible. Not like the good old days anymore!

        The game was useful for its intended purpose of an adult game night! As marbles fell, people took shots, danced or sang! It was quick, fun and served it's purpose. We loved it. Now can be used with other family members as well. A great buy!
