Muji Evolution Puzzle for Kids

Great design from Muji- the Japanese design store. Great for teaching kids about evolution. Also- all they have to know is this:

Dead monkeys don't have sex
Baby monkeys look a bit different to their parents
Some monkeys will be better at surviving than others

Add in some changing environmental conditions, wait 4 billion years and "hey presto"... opposable thumbs, language, culture, dancing with the stars.

Please note children that this process is NOT RANDOM. Yes the engine of change is mutation (random) but evolution is steered towards survival in whatever environment happens to exist at that moment.
