Product Review and Giveaway - Cahootie!

Are you like me and remember nostalgically a time when recess was spent huddled over homemade fortune tellers folded up and waiting for our friends to choose a combination of numbers and colors?

I remember teaching Robyn how to make them, too!  The hours of untold fun and fortunes based on simple pieces of paper, lovingly hand made...

Well, now even the simple paper fortune teller has entered the 21st century in the form of
Yep, that's right - Cahootie!

My review:

Robyn, age 12 chose what she considered the most mature of the Cahootie options to review - Truth or Dare.  It comes with forty re-useable stickers to keep it fresh and exciting, and offers a great twist on playing Truth or Dare at a sleepover with her girlfriends.  

Robyn felt that the Truth or Dare version of the game would be good for sleepovers and after school parties with her friends, but wasn't all that exciting to play with her grandparents...

Robyn also checked out some of the online offerings from Cahootie, but it required credit card confirmation and I was in the hospital having Erik when she reviewed the product, so she wasn't able to check out Club Cahootie - the credit card process is a nominal $.99 that ensures that children have parental consent to be involved in the site.  

There are 17 different Cahootie products, including four that are licensed to Animal Planet.  They range from Birthday Diva to Sporty Diva to Would You?  The Animal Planet Cahooties are Cats Rule, Dogs Rule, Endangered Creatures and Sea Creatures.   There is also a Party Pack!
