Life in the herd can get boring when you’re a young elephant. To pass the time, the little ones invent games to play. First they gather a bunch of colorful balls. Next they race to see who can pick them up. BUT here’s the challenge:

You must pick up the balls according to a certain pattern and.. 


You can only use your kooky plastic elephant trunk to pick up the balls!

Listen in to discover why we think Tricky Trunks is a joy to play. It's Hungry Hungry Hippos for the 21st century. And is most emphatically Major Fun!

Complete Show Notes continue after the break.
