Like so many of the updated versions of these classic kid games, this is just junk. New wider holes and easy grab pieces? Pretty much kills the whole purpose of the game.

It's been updated for "large openings and easy grab pieces", making it way too simple of a game. I don't know, maybe nostalgia has kicked into overdrive, but I remember this game being a lot more fun as a kid, mostly because it wasn't easy. The kids we played with agree this game would be very low on their list to play again.

This game not only has lame pieces such as headphones, a popsicle, and a controller that are in holes that aren't even on the body (they're on the sides next to the fingers, near a hat, and well below the foot) but the holes themselves are about the size of a nickel. I remember the old days of surgical precision needed to get the funnybone out of the tiny little sliver of room I had to work with. I didn't often get it, but when I did, it was a major accomplishment.

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

This is not the original, or close to it. The openings openings are so big there is no challenge at all for my five year old. This does not contain cards barely qualifies as a game now.

I loved this game as a kid. My 2 year old operated this without hitting the edges. Also, I remember the older version came with cards that told you what ailment to remove? This is just let the youngest go first and then pass to the left. Also, if you push the nose it buzzes. So your trying to swat hands away while another child is at "work." Should be sold for single digits. I gave it one star because you do get an occasional giggle. But I'm going to have to contain my eye rolling when the kids want to choose this game.

What a piece of junk! This is a prime example of the dumbing down of children's games. Now everyone can be successful. And no one will want to play because there is no point!

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!

This poorly made game stop working before the children had time to really use product. I would not purchase. The price was not low.

I was so happy to pick up an original Operation game at a yard sale only to find out that it was broken. At least, I salvaged the cards and pieces from it. I ended up buying the new version not realizing how much the game had changed.

Why companies always feel that they need to "better" classics is beyond me. The classics were and always be classics for a reason. An Oreo with vanilla cookies is not an Oreo.

The game no longer has cards; instead it has noises indicating which item to remove. My family found the noises to be irritating, loud, and sometimes inconsistent. It didn't feel like the same game without the cards. Everything doesn't have to be electronic to be enjoyable or appealing. Using noises instead of cards seems like a "dumbing down" of the game. Does anyone read anymore?

The pieces have been changed and are much easier to remove rendering the game much less challenging. Even our 4 yr. old had no problem removing the pieces. Our game was over in seconds. My daughter found some of the pieces to be humorous; the frog, the boogers, the bubbles. However, those pieces were rubbery and the easiest to remove.
