Edition: Junior - English - Ref. 44024
Publisher: Waddingtons/Tonka - 1991
Dimensions of the box: 26.0 x 50.3 cm

The version was manufactured in the United Kingdom but bought in Australia.


With this long box, two things attract attention:


The edges of the lid are 4 mm higher than those of the inner box. Production error?
With the Waddingtons issues there is no "Monopoly in a red bar" but "Monopoly in a white bar".

In this "Monopoly for kids" game, the aim is to collect as much money as possible. At the moment one of the players runs out of money, the other players must count up their money to see who has won the game.


The game board is square with eight proeprties on each side. Its back is red and so is the innerbox. The game board in folded vertically. On the bottom of the box is a colour picture of the board and all attributes.
Four children can play at the same time, because there are four cars which are yellow, red, blue and green.
The Ticket Booths are distributed amongst the players with the same colour of car. They look very much like the well-known houses and even have an excentric placed chimney, but the roofs are plain.
The game is called "A thrill-filled day at the Amusement Park" and will be over in about 20 to 30 minutes. Uncle Pennybags brings you to the Roller Coaster, Magic Show, Water Chute, the Video Arcade and more. In the coarse of the game ticket booths can be bought to place on an Amusement so that it becomes your property. If you also own the other Amusement of the same colour, one has to pay double the amount shown on the space. There are six Chance spaces where cards can be drawn with instructions like "Go to the Water Chute" and "Pay 3 to take the tram to the cafe". The dimensions of these tickets are 57 x 88 mm.
The money consists of five, one side printed notes (1, 2, 3, 4 and 5) with Uncle Pennybags in various situations the centrefield. The lower right corner of the notes says "©1991 Parker Brothers".
The die is red with white pips.
