BeanBoozled Game

BeanBoozled Game is my favorite easter basket stuffer for girls and boysBeanBoozled GameBeanBoozled Game

BeanBoozled is one of my favorite Easter basket stuffers for boys and girls of all ages. It’s real simple. Kids give the spinner a flick, see where it lands, then choose the jelly bean that matches the picture. It could be a delicious treat, or it could be a nasty nightmare!

Maybe it’s the 12-year-old boy sense of humor in me, but there’s just something hilarious about watching someone’s face as they unwittingly try a moldy-cheese-flavored jelly bean.

BeanBoozled is a fun and inexpensive Easter basket stuffer. The one pictured is one game (the spinner box and jelly beans). Around Easter they do go in and out of stock, but don’t pay more than $4-$6 for a single game. This one here is one game plus four refills.
