The Poopy Head Game by Sambro – Our Review!
Hey there and welcome to the blog. I hope you are doing OK. We just got back from our Easter hols in Cornwall and have been spending some time inside playing games and painting rocks!
Today on the blog we share with you our review of Poopy Head. Yep, that really is the name of the game. Much to little B’s amusement!
The Game Where Number 2 Always Wins!
OK so what’s in the box?
- A whoopee cushion. B LOVED this the most.
- Five poops on elastic. Yep, you really do put them on your head. Again, these caused many giggles and B spent a good amount of time trying to get them on Jerry cat’s head.
- A pack of cards.
How to Play
To be honest, I had to read the instructions a number of times to get my head around what to actually do. And I think this is how the game works. The instructions seemed a bit overly complicated for what I thought would be a fairly simple game. Maybe it was just me and my “mum” brain was kicking in?!
So, I think the object of the game is to place your cards down the fastest, in the sequence of toilet, poo, wipe and wash hands. The person who is last to get rid of their cards pops a poo on their head. If you’re the cleanest after five rounds, you win.
The game is designed for 2 to 4 players, aged six and upwards.
Opportunities to Learn?
This game brought on many laughs and giggles and B thought it was hilarious that mum and dad sat there with poo on their heads. There are some opportunities for learning though…kind of! Sequencing, counting, turn taking, colour recognition.
We adapted the game a bit to play in turn and it seemed to work well like that. B is nearly five so slightly younger than the recommended age. I just knew that if we’d played it as it was intended – putting cards down the quickest – there is no way his attention would of held out. It was better to take turns and ask him “oh have you got toilet paper?” etc.
I think this game will be a grower. B seems to be more interested in the whoopee cushion and fake poos than actually playing the game at the mo. He wouldn’t even pop a poo on his head!
