I had to purposely push the tweezers into the side just to show the kids that it did something, since none of them were bad enough to come close to triggering the buzz. I might as well just put the pieces in a bowl and tell the kids to pick them out, or even better, just dump them out. We get to hit the everyone win buttons and we're all happy, right? When you're removing a screwdriver from a hat that is a few inches away from the head, I don't see much of a difference
The original game required precision handling of the tweezers and a steady hand. This taught fine motor skills. The original game had cards which indicated which operation you were supposed to do. If successful, you got paid. This taught the value of hard work. If you failed, you got nothing and a specialist could come in and get paid more to do the same job. The money aspect of this game taught math skills. The original game had pieces that were a play on words (Charlie Horse, Spare Ribs, Funny Bone, etc.). This taught figurative language.
This game has stupid pieces (cell phone, headphones, knife & fork, etc.). Really? Why would these be in someone's body to begin with??? Even a very small child could successfully remove the pieces from these enormous holes! There is no challenge.
Do yourself a favor, find an old version of this game on eBay or at a garage sale. Don't waste your money on this pointless version. I am thankful that we still have our old one!
