Melissa & Doug Suspend is a balancing game that is as easy to understand as it is difficult to master. The game comes with 24 notched, rubber-tipped wire pieces that hang from a tabletop stand. With each turn, a new piece is added to the transforming vertical sculpture, causing the balance to shift and the difficulty to increase.
Players must use one hand to hang and balance the individual game rods on the frame without causing the structure to collapse. If you touch any of the suspended game pieces with your other hand, you have to take back your piece, losing your turn. Should you cause one or more pieces to fall, you have to pick them up and add them to your pile.

This is a great addition to any family game night. This game is equivalent to Jenga, but with the added twist of structural twist with every turn. It is a great way for kids to exercise hand-eye coordination and improve fine motor skills.
The only real complaint is the poor packaging.
