What's in Ned's Head Game Review

Friday Game Night: Kids Want to Know What's in Ned's Head?

Gathering around the table isn't just something in Norman Rockwell's pictures. For generations, families have been bonding over board games. And we've got one to keep both parents and kids busy! What's in Ned's Head? ($20) is a bit of a gross game that invites tots to reach into Ned's fleece head in search of objects pictured on playing cards — the first one to find the object wins. Ned's mushed-up head is filled with plastic dirty Q-tips, insects, and a lost lunch, so lil ones delight in the ick factor. We put the game to the test and here's how it fared:

Who is this game designed for? Playing cards feature both photos and words, so tots don't have to read to play the game. It's best for children ages 4 and up.
How long does it take to play? Each round takes about three minutes, which was quick enough to keep everyone's attention. To clear all of the objects from the head took about 20 minutes including a lot of laughter as we compared our finds.
What separates it from other games? A simple hidden object game, the "gross-out" factor steps it up a notch and makes it exciting for kiddos who love bathroom humor.
Would I give it as a gift? Definitely (two boxes are already wrapped up for birthday parties this weekend)!
Did the kids play again? We play several rounds of Ned every night before bath time, and my son brags about it.
