The picture shows a view of this 1949 Boxed Schaper Cootie Game. Shown is the box cover and the inside with all of the colorful hard plastic parts. All of the parts are present except one eye is missing. The instructions are on the bottom of the box cover and there is a paper insert order form price list for parts. The cover has a Parents Magazine seal and is marked as follows:

THE GAME OF ... COOTIE
TRADE MARK REG.
DES. PAT. 167,006
AN EXCITING EDUCATIONAL GAME FOR ALL AGES
ANOTHER SCHAPER PLASTIC GAME
SANITARY WRAPPED

The first Cootie game was designed by William H. (Herb) Schaper, an avid Minnesota angler enamored with bugs. It was introduced in the fall of 1949. Dayton's took the first dozen games on consignment and had sold 5,592 sets by the end of 1950. Cootie quickly went national and was an instant success, unmatched in the industry for some 40 years (until the early 1990s and the success of action figures). By the mid-1960s, Schaper Manufacturing was selling more than 25 different games from its headquarters in Golden Valley. Curiously, several of Schaper's games had insect themes, including Ants in the Pants, Tickle Bee, Inch Worm, Guess'n Bee and Tumble Bug.

The box measures 6-3/4'' x 10-1/2'' x 1-3/4''. The parts appear to all be in mint condition. The box has some light wear and some spotting inside and out as pictured.
