Oujia Board for Kids?!?
This is not, repeat, NOT A APRIL FOOL JOKE! This came across on my newsfeed on Facebook on Wednesday.
The Oujia board — sold by Hasbro since 1967 — now comes in a hot pink. Yes, now children can enjoy all the fun trying to contact spirits.
Toy expert and consultant Chris Byrne, who writes for timetoplaymag.com, said he found "absolutely nothing" wrong with any version of the game. He says:
"And if something doesn't fit your value or belief system, you don't have to buy it, There's absolutely nothing remotely Christian or un-Christian about it. I think people are projecting their belief system on it."
Hasbro officials say they have received a "couple of dozen" complaints following a recent report on the pink version.
