Got this for a white elephant exchange but it’s really hard to read the answers. It’s fun to see people ask questions but then they have to move it around to see what the answers says. For a fun gift it’s ok.

I got this as a Christmas present for my daughter and it’s been a lot of fun! I remember always wanting one myself as a kid so I was excited to see her enjoying it! I will say it doesn’t hold the attention for long but it definitely gets used and is very entertaining with not only her but friends also! Would definitely recommend!

Love that it looks just the the old one. Only downfall is that the triangle doesn’t always come up so you have to move it around a bit and it’s kinda small.
