Rated 4 out of 5 Gross but fun!
My 6 year old received Gooey Louie for Christmas.
The first thing I like about the game is that it requires very little setting up each time you want to play, this allows us to happily play it over and over without my daughter getting bored or distracted by other things.
Despite the horrible concept of the game, it's actually really fun. My daughter, like most young children, obviously LOVES the concept! Once you get started you almost forget that you're picking bogeys from a nose! The game has a real suspense factor and almost reminds me of Pop Up Pirate. It's a really simple game to play, there are practically no rules so it's suitable and enjoyable for children (and adults!) of all ages. We usually find ourselves giggling throughout the game, especially my daughter who can't control her giggles until the brain pops out of Louie's head!
Another thing I like about the game is that the bogeys aren't slimey or putty-like. My daughter previously received another revolting game called Doggie Doo which came with gooey putty that was really messy and effectively ruined the game. Another good point is that the game doesn't require batteries.
Each game only usually lasts a matter of seconds, usually no more than a minute. This has its upsides and downsides, the downsides are that it's over quickly but the upsides are that children don't lose interest half way through. My daughter is happy to play this game continuously and it was a big hit with everybody on Christmas day! I don't always enjoy playing my daughters games with her but I don't mind this one (probably due to the suspense factor, along with the fact it requires no setting up and doesn't take ages to play). I'm happy to recommend this gross game to all!

I bought this for my niece's 6th birthday and it proved to be a big hit with all the kids - from 6 - 16! Decent quality too so it should withstand hours of play.

Rated 2 out of 5 by spacegirl77 they wont get hours of enjoyment
I reluctantly bought this for my 6 year old son after being pestered about it for some time. As expected, this is a toy where it's all in the marketing but actual play value is limited and short lived. I think they have played with it for all of 30 minutes in 6 months. Don't waste your money.
