Cahootie~~product review

15 January 2010

I remember when I was about 12 or 13, making what we always called Cootie Catchers, you know those pointy triangle shaped things that you put the silly questions and answers on? I don't know how many of those we made as kids, but for the life of me I couldn't remember how to make one for my daughter. I always loved them and figured that she would to, but alas.. Mommy just couldn't do it:(

 Then I happened upon Cahootie!

This is the new modern version of my beloved "cootie catcher"!! I love that there are so many different versions to choose from! All the kids love it, even my 6 year old son!!

Better than the homemade version, these games feature tear-resistant paper and many, many reusable stickers that allow the user to continuously change things up. Current Cahootie themes include Wishes & Dreams, Truth or Dare, Sporty Girls, Rockin' Out, Girl Wonders, Best Friends Forever, My Fab Family, Would You?, My Fab Future, Democrat,Republics and Birthday Wishes. They also have a product line under license with Animal Planet!  In order to encourage your kids creativity, they offer a downloadable template so they can learn to make their own Cahootie.

They even offer a Club Cahootie for the kids! Club Cahootie offers tweens and teens a safe way to experience social networking. My daughter has been wanting to make a face book account so that she can talk to her friends, but I am so afraid that she will start getting messages and friend requests from people she doesn't know. Granted she knows not to give out any of her info, but I still worry. With Club Cahootie, there is no need to worry. She can get on, blog, chat and even play a virtual Cahootie with her friends. And since all invitiations for friends are filled out online and then printed with a unique code, I know who she is interacting with!!

Buy It:

You can purchase Cahootie online at

or at a local retailer. The site has a great tool to help you find the closest retailer to you!!
