Pros:Hours of entertainment, and you are building bugs
Cons:Eventually the kids realize that they are just building bugs, and they lose interest....and they lose the pieces pretty easily...
And these are the biggest Cooties I have ever seen! When they are fully grown (or put together, or whatever) they are like three or four inches long and stand about an inch to an inch and a half tall (give or take)...those are some BIG bugs!
I am not sure what they are like these days, but my Mom had this game for us when we were kids. I see they are still selling it, and that there are a few more options (like shoes and junk), but I am not sure what these extras are, so if you want to complain if I get something wrong, don't waste your breath. I will tell you what the original game is like, and I already gave you my disclaimer that the new game might be slightly different.
The game I played growing up (and coincidently that my Mom gave me for my kids) was a really cool idea. You have a spinner thing (whatever the technical name is for it, I have no clue...) and it has pictures of the body, head, legs, eyes, antennae, and tongue. You have to spin the spinner deal until you first get a body, and then you can build from there.
The concept is rather simple, and it is amazing how it can keep a kid's attention for hours. All you do is spin the spinner and you get whatever body part it lands on to put on your bug. The first one that gets the body, head, all 6 legs, the eyes, and both antennae wins. Pretty simple concept, huh?
I loved this game when I was a kid, and now that I have it for my kids, they love it, too. I am not sure if it has something to do with the fact that you are building a bug, or what, but it is just enrapturing for some reason.
Definitely two thumbs up!
