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

I recently ordered Milton Bradley's "Ants In The Pants" and "Cootie Bug" games for my 3 year old son. These games were a total blast from the past and I just had to get them when I saw them on your site. Ants In The Pants is great but Cootie Bug is NOT good for this age group. I was so disappointed because the game has too many little pieces, is a little more complicated than I remembered, and the game board was in pieces in minutes (flimsy cardboard). Suprisingly enough, my 3 year old son is really careful with his toys and is not "destructive" by any means. And although this toy was not expensive, it was a waste of money for his age group.
Just wanted to provide some feedback and possibly save some other parents some money. Wait until your kids are 4 or 5 for this one.

.... Cootie is a classic, but unfortunately the new cootie is not as good as the old. Each player used to have to get two eyes and two antennae. Now it is one set of eyes and one set of headtopping. So now your four year old sits and plays with fewer rewarding possibilities while waiting for the six sixes needed for the legs. Remarkably bad change in a great game for children of all ages. A great game because the little ones can win fair and square knowing that they got no help from the grown ups.

This game designed for preschoolers is just plain fun. I don't know why the idea of putting together a bug should make one smile, but it does. I have always hated bugs, but I love this game and was sad when my girls thought they were too old to play any longer. So I have the Cootie game stashed away awaiting my in-the-future grandchildren to come play with me. And anyone who sees me putting together a bug for my own pleasure... well I deny that I still play with my cooties. I'm just checking to see if all the parts are there. Yeah, yeah, that's what I'm doing!

Cootie is a simple game and consists of a set of dice, enough bodies, heads, legs, tongues, antennae and eyes for four people to play. The object of the game is to roll the dice to see what body part you get. For example, if you roll a 1 you get the body, 2 is a head, etc. The player then snaps the pieces together to create their Cootie bug. The first player to have a whole Cootie put together is the winner, but a "whole" Cootie includes a body, head, two eyes, two antennae, six legs, and a curly tongue. Each of these body parts are brightly colored and you wont' build two alike. Two to four players can join in at a time. We have even combined a couple of games so more people can play!

This game is designed for children aged 3 - 6 years old, but adults and even teenagers seem to have fun while constructing the bug. Smaller children are often not interested in rolling the dice - they just want to build the Cootie bug. When I first introduced my girls to Cootie, they just snapped the pieces together and built a bug. Once they were about five years old, they were more interested in playing the actual game.

We purchased this game for my daughter. She is only 2 1/2, but we figured it would be fun to just try and put together the legs, eyes etc. My husband and I were so disappointed in this game. You just keep rolling for legs basically. The eyes are one unit now. The head kept falling off of the bodies. The lips on mine fell off throughout the entire game. None of us could get the legs into the holes without a huge effort. We knew that our daughter might have difficulty with the game at her age, but we never anticipated the trouble we would have. I would not waste my money on this game. It isn't one we be able to use in the future. The quality is very poor. They took a fun game and made it very frustrating.

I believe the game is fun but the pieces would not stay together. The head, body, legs, and antennae would keep falling off. This frustrated my children because they had to keep putting the pieces together after they already put them on and so it took the enjoyment out of the game. My children is 3 and 4 years old and my nephew is 6 years old.

My kids 4 & 6 got this for Christmas. It is a classic game, but the parts, box and board are all much cheaper & flimsy than they used to be. The bugs are hard to get to stand up. It was somewhat frustrating for the kids if you followed the rules and had to roll a 1 and then a 2 with the dice to get started building the bug. When the 4 of us played it, some had their bug practically built and others were still waiting to even start and had not rolled the first required number. It doesn't always seem "fair" to the younger ones to see others so far ahead, strictly based on luck & roll of the die. There is no real skill or learning here in succeeding in playing the game and winning.

Okay, it's Cootie. Most of us know the game. Fun, right? Well, it should be, but it isn't.

One of our kids received this as a gift about 2 years ago. We did try to play it several times, but it was nothing but frustrating. The little parts were so poorly made that the legs and such did not stay in tightly and kept falling out. This was unbelievably disappointing for the kids. It was really just about unplayable. I had to get rid of it.

Maybe we were just unlucky or maybe they're making this cheaply these days. I don't know. All I can say is I wouldn't waste your money finding out. There are plenty of better games out there.

Junk!
