What fun! A friend dropped by this evening and, since we both enjoy playing board games, she brought the original, 1949, W.H. Schaper Mfg. Co. Inc., game of Cootie to play.

Hasbro's Milton Bradley gave Cootie a makeover in 1986. You can see the redesigned game at the Hasbro web site.


  1. I remember Cootie! How fun. Though at the time we had not idea what cooties really were. EW!

    Thanks for the link to the scherenschnitte embroidery site. How cool! I'm going to hae to try that.

  2. I had one of these as a kid. And that was somewhere between 1949 and 1986.

  3. Oh my!! so that's what a cootie looks like! :P

  4. Yay! I loved Cootie when I was a kid!
