Hasbro Games ~ Don’t Step in It
If you have children, especially boys, you probably know all about bathroom humor. Potty words that boys seems to think are hysterical and you have to roll your eyes at their antics. And every year, a new toy comes out that focuses on the fun kids have with gross humor. Remember the whoopee cushions and the noise putty?
And it isn’t just for the guys! There are even dolls that have diaper messes!
This year, Hasbro Games has launched a new game based on the hilarious nature of dog poop. It’s called Don’t Step in It! And it has families everywhere crying with laughter as a blindfolded participant walks a path and tries to avoid stepping in a pile of Playdough-like Poop. Cause we all know how much fin that is in the middle of the night!
This is one of those games where the more people you have playing it, the more fun it is. It comes with the mat (which acts as the path), a blindfold, four cans of the make believe poop, a mold, spinner board, and instructions.
The mold makes the dough look just like a pile of dog poop, and kids have a lot of fun placing these strategically on the mat for the participant to accidentally step in. They giggle with laughter whenever that happens – because the person walks barefoot and the dough squishes up into their toes.
Please note that because it’s a Playdough like material, make sure you’re careful about having it around a carpet surface. That can be difficult to get out. It’s best to use on a flat surface that can be cleaned up easily.
If you run out of the make believe poop, you can simply buy another can of Playdough (kids laugh more when it’s a brown one). To win the game, you have to be the participant who stepped in the least number of poop piles.
If you managed to dodge them all, then you’re the winner! This is a game that can even be played solo, if your child just wants to have some fun by themselves, but with more friends and family around, it’s even better.
Because it’s an easy no-skill game, your little ones ages 4 and up can participate in this game with just as much a chance as winning as the adults. It’s even fun for the whole family to play – grandparents and all! Everyone loves cheering each other on and laughing when the person accidentally lands in a big pile.
Give each player in your family an opportunity to set up the minefield of poop along the path for the next player. What delight they will experience when one of their strategically placed piles gushes up between another player’s toes.
While this certainly isn’t what I would deem an educational game, but it is one that generates laughter and is a family friendly game for all, so that makes it one of this year’s best selling games for families.
Don’t Step in It! is available at local retailers and on Amazon. Add this game to your family game night!
