Then place the magic monkey in the center on the left side of the cad and point his banana to the picture, letter, shape, or color you want to try and match. then select the image on the right side of the card that best matches your selection. To see if you are right, place the monkey in the center on the right side of the card and let go. He will mysteriously spin and point to the correct match... and all without batteries!
