Cahootie Review and Giveaway US only Ends 5/26

If you were a kid in the 80's you may remember the cootie catchers, I know as a kid in grade school, my friends and I, all played with them. If you weren't born that early or just didn't play with them, let me folded a piece of paper up until it looked like this

and you wrote colors on the out side
and numbers on the inside
And in the final inside flaps we wrote the names of boys or girls in the class,I was thrilled to find someone made a game out of all the fun, I remember having as a child. I was even more delighted to receive the chance to share it with my own daughter. Although the game has changed and become a lot more fun for sleepovers, and geared toward slightly younger girls.
Cahootie is a delightful game, and today's " cootie catchers" are brightly colored,and have fun sayings.

We received the Wishes and Dreams Cahootie and it is adorable. It is wonderfully, and brightly colored. This particular one instead of Color names  like the original "Cootie Catcher" has 
The pictures are fun,and not to grown up for my 7 year old daughter.
Inside where there are fun sayings like
In the air
In the sea
Love letter
Hand bag
and each Cahootie comes with 40 reusable stickers, so the fun never ends.

How do you play Cahootie?
1. Remove Cahootie from packaging.
2. Remove stickers from under the Cahootie Tray.
3. Choose 8 stickers of your choice and place on the inner most flaps of the Cahootie (2 stickers on each flap).
4. Slide your thumbs and two first fingers under the four flaps and close the Cahootie to a point- it will look like a pyramid.
5. The person holding the Cahootie asks another player to choose one of the panels. Spell out the word and move the Cahootie accordingly. Each letter, open the Cahootie in one direction alternating by moving your fingers away from each other vertically, and with the next letter away from each other horizontally
6. The player then chooses an inside flap and again the Cahootie is moved accordingly for every letter spelled out.
7. The player then picks any one of the four triangles showing and that flap is opened to reveal the coordinating sticker with either trivia, a fortune, or a challenge. (Cover the sticker next to the one chosen to keep it a surprise for the next game).
8. When the players want new surprises revealed, just replace the stickers with new ones. Each Cahootie comes with 40 removable and interchangeable stickers.
 Cahootie Comes in so many different designs.
