The Scoop

A family game of tricky hangs and steady hands! Try this hanging balance game and you'll be hooked! Suspend comes with 24 notched, rubber-tipped wire pieces to hang from a tabletop stand. Sound easy? Try adding another piece! Each time a bar is added, the balance shifts, the difficulty changes and the incredible midair sculpture transforms. Can you add all your game pieces without making it fall? This tricky game for 1-4 players is a test of steady nerves and steady hands.

    Comments about Melissa & Doug Suspend Family Game:

    Would love it if we could get replacement parts. The thin plastic container started cracking and crumbling almost immediately and we've since lost the dice and one of the blue "sticks" through the cracks. We have since put the pieces in an old whiskey tin but the lost parts take the shine off the game.

    This game is awesome. We played it so much, it became the best gift this Christmas. Everyone we we've showed it to loved it and wants their own. My son brought it whilst studying in San Francisco, so not sure if it's available in the UK, but it ought to be!

        Bought this for a Christmas gift for our 6 yr and 14 yr old. Needless to say, it was the hit at Christmas. Kids and cousins started playing the game and everyone was watching in our group of 40 trying to see how this game worked. Got several inquiries of where I got it from. Very fun game for all ages. Great family game or for parties. Highly recommend this to others.

          I work with teen boys for skill development. This game is wonderful for it too! It promotes concentration, focusing skills, social interaction, coping skills (for frustration, losing, etc.), patience, decision making, and problem solving. Many of the other employees have asked where I got the game and are wanting to buy it for their own home. A great game overall!

              This is a great fun product! fun for the whole family and works great to develop hand-eye coordination, patience, and understanding of physics. It would be nice if there was some sort of expansion that can be added to it to make the game more expansive and even more fun. We try to think of ways to add more people and make the game longer and more difficult but all we can come up with is buying a second to add people and more pieces. All in all a great product and fun every time you play.

                  This was a gift from my mother to my little ones. She was so excited to give it to them as she demoed it at the store and knew they would love it. Upon opening the game, we found it was missing a key piece, necessary to play the game. I called the customer service number on the packaging and was DELIGHTED by my experience. Someone answered my call after two rings, knew the product well, was polite, intelligible and immediately helpful. The piece in question has been shipped and we will be playing with this game in a few short days! Thanks, Melissa and Doug. Keep up the good work!

                    I bought this hoping I could give it to my brother an his family, but I almost kept it.

                    This game was engaging and challenging enough for two mechanically-inclined adults, one developmentally challenged pre-teen and a teenager who is usually glued to his video games.

                    I built the set and began dangling the pieces, hoping the kids would ask what I was doing. Once they came over to the table and the game started, they were hooked (and so was I)!

                      • RULES -You can only use one hand to place a piece. If you touch any of the suspended game pieces with your other hand during your turn, you have to take back your piece, and you lose your turn. -Once you remove your hand from the piece, the move is complete. -You can hang your piece from any part of another game piece EXCEPT a spot (notch or straight section) that is already occupied. (But if you hang your piece on an open notch or straight section and it slides to an occupied spot, that is allowed.) -Determine at the beginning of the game whether the wooden connector will be in play as a hanging point. -If you hang a piece that causes a part of the structure to touch the play surface, you have to reposition your piece. -If you cause one or more pieces to fall, you have to pick them up and add them to your pile.
