One night in November Bryce was laying with me while he was watching videos on YouTube. He was cracking up and after several minutes I asked him what was so funny. He told me there was this potato Play-Doh game and it looked so funny. He started to tell me about it and I was lost, as usual. But I understood “game”, “play-doh” and “fun”, since my kids LOVE play-doh and play games daily I figured is would be a great Christmas present! I went to Amazon and searched for ‘Play-Doh potato game’. I found this (game below) and ordered it.
So last night Bryce and Chloe wanted me to play a game with them, I asked which one and they said the Play-Doh game…I had not played it before, but had watched the kids play it many times, so I figured why not?! Well, as they were explaining how to play it there was much giggling. You see, as you go around the game board your little potato head gets made into different potato ‘foods’, like potato chips, french fries and chopped up. The uncontrollable laughter came when they showed me the ‘spinner’…
Do you see that little green cloud? Apparently that is a ‘fart bubble’!! And as the littles explained this to me they were cracking up. And when I asked, ‘a fart bubble?’ The laughter deepened, because mom just said ‘fart bubble!!!’
Well, yes that is a fart bubble, right there on the spinner for this potato game. And when you land on the fart bubble, which happened every other spin last night, you get to choose any other players potato head and put them through one of the processes and send them back to start.
It seems that each time mom spun the wheel I got stuck in the ‘factory’ and always had to go back to start, they thought this was hysterical, I however did not. Between landing on the circles in the factory and the littles landing on fart bubbles, I was NEVER going to get past go. And this made the game even more fun for my children…and my husband who was watching from the couch!
Here is what I mean by the factory:
After about 40 minutes of giggles, belly laughs and mom ‘yelling’ NO MORE FART BUBBLES, just spin again, the game was over! And mom won, because from start I landed on ‘move ahead of the furthest player’ and Chloe just happened to be ONE circle away from the finish!! **wipes brow** I won!
Moral of this story, the game is cute, and funny and induces much laughter. And when mom yells NO FART BUBBLES, other kids from different rooms of the house just might come out and see what in the world is going on…and sit down and watch you become french fries for the umpteenth millionth time!
