This classic game has been around for nearly half a century and is just as fun as ever. The bugs' faces are a bit goofier than before, but the object remains the same: to be the first to create your own Cootie. Just arrange the bug parts on the fold-out board and roll the die to win the parts you need. (Roll a 1 and pick a body, roll a 2 and select a head, roll a 3, etc.) Body parts are made of hard plastic and come in various mix-and-match colors. Small pieces are a danger to young children, so supervision is recommended. Instructions in English and Spanish. --Tom Keogh
Mix and match to create crazy critters; children may play solo or in groups. Each of four cooties assembles with 6 legs, mouth part, ears/hat, and eyes. Perfect for younger children because there is no reading required; parental instructions in English and Spanish. Manufacturer in the USA; die made in China. For 2 to 4 children ages 3 to 6 years.
