You’re Pulling My Leg! Junior Wins Toy of the Year Award

Prestigious honor based on game’s excellence

SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA — The junior version of the multi-award winning bluffing game “You’re Pulling My Leg!” has won the prestigious “Toy of the Year Award” from Creative Child Magazine, a national publication that focuses on providing parents with the latest information on how to nurture creativity in their children.  The game was chosen as the winner out of 1,000 entries.  “I’m thrilled and excited” says the game’s creator Allen Wolf.  “I created this version for kids to be able to play with their parents and friends and I’m grateful that it has been so well received.”

A panel of judges, including child psychologists and child educators, monitored a pre-selected group of kids while they played “You’re Pulling My Leg! Junior” and all the other entries in the games category.  The panel then rated the games on four major factors: educational value, creative nurturing, creative play and overall value with respect to retail price.  After being given a score value, “You’re Pulling My Leg! Junior” was determined as a finalist for the Toy of the Year Award.  After further deliberation and judging against the other game finalists, the panel declared “You’re Pulling My Leg! Junior” to be the ”Toy of the Year.”

Wolf originally created “You’re Pulling My Leg!”  for two good friends to help them get to know each other.  After the success of the original version, Wolf created 614 new questions for the junior version that could be answered by younger players.  In the game, players try to fool each other with wacky stories about their lives. When a card is drawn and a question is asked, the secret roll of the die tells the players if their answers should be true or made up.   When they hear a story, players bet tokens on whether they think the storyteller is telling the truth or pulling their leg. Players win tokens if they’re right but lose them if you're wrong. The first player to 21 points wins.

Games can be purchased at local toy and game stores or on the web at MorningStarGames.com.  MSRP is $24.99 for the tin/$19.99 for the box.
