Soak Up the Fun with Wet Head

Wet Head

Who would have thought a game of roulette would best be played wearing a bathing suit?

Designed for kids ages 4 and up, Wet Head, from Zing, gives kids the chance to relish the excitement of roulette without the 21 and over atmosphere of a Las Vegas casino. With Wet Head, kids take a different type of gamble as they take turns pulling pins from a helmet fitted with a water container on top. Pull the wrong pin, and a wet head is what you’ll get. If this all sounds ridiculously fun, that’s because it is.

Included in the box is one spinner, one Wet Head hat, one water container, one water container plug, and eight red pins or rods, as I like to call them. Before the game begins, players must first lock the blue water container onto the top of the Wet Head hat. After placing all eight rods into the holes of the water container, players can remove the top plug and add water. Pro tip: Be fearless and fill it with the coldest water possible.

To start, the most valiant player takes the Wet Head hat and places it on his or her head. Then, that player straps in nice and tight using the rubber strap connected to the hard hat. The headgear makes you look like a construction worker who just likes to get a little silly sometimes, but it certainly adds more humor to the game. The helmet is surprisingly comfortable and should fit nicely on the heads of both kids and adults. That’s right parents—there’s no getting out of this one.  Next, players take turns wearing the hat and spinning the spinner, which either specifies a number of rods to remove from the water container or offers to spare them a soaking with a skipped turn. There’s even a “pull one pin and spin again” option, which, in all likelihood, will leave players whispering “oh please, no” as the spinner takes its time determining their fate. While there are eight pins in total, only one releases the water, making it a game of luck and chance rather than skill. Essentially, this levels the playing field so kids of all ages can enjoy a game together. Players that complete their turn without getting wet get to pass the Wet Head to someone else.

For even more fun, kids can download the free Wet Head Challenge mobile app, which will be available on iOS and Android devices in March. The app includes a handful of challenging trivia questions and even a recording feature so kids can capture the moment their friends get drenched. Players that correctly answer their question get to pass the Wet Head to the next player. Asking questions (regardless of whether or not you are using the app) adds another great dimension to the game and opens the door for new and exciting variations of play.

  1. On the spinner what does Reverse stand for? Like if you are playing with it with 2-8 people what are you supposed to do when the spinner lands on reverse? Do you change the rotation in which the game is going or are you supposed to ADD one of the a Red pins back in?? Considering the game honestly comes with one set of instructions on the box that say the following: 1) Put the water-filled Wet head on your head.Spin the Spinner… 2)Follow the instructions on the spinner based on where the arrow lands. Pass the WET HEAD to the next player. 3)Will you be the next wet head? However NOWHERE does it tell you what REVERSE means on the spinner! Can someone anyone please let us know the answer!!! Thank you

    Very disappointing. I bought it to play it with my grandson who despite being only nine is very good at getting things to work. We like water games and expected some mess but it leaked badly before he got it on his head. We checked that the pins were in fast but it still leaked. The spinner was lumpy and hard to spin. I note Mr Rudells comments and feel he has no business to be so smug about a rubbish game.

  4. I think there is a problem with this game, there is a blue bit that has fallen out and I don’t know how to put it back in. It is the plug in the middle of the blue tank? Can anyone help?

    Concept is good. Product needs twerking. It leaks before you even get yo the last pin.

  6. It worked well the first two times at Christmas- a month later I tried playing it again, the tank kept leaking. I tried everything; pushing all the pins in and removing them and pushing it in again, but it kept leaking. I would not recommend playing it after a long period of time.

    Bought the game through Amazon for my daughters b-day party. It did nothing but leak. Tried everything. Couldn’t return because it was past 30 days. Hugely disappointed! 🙁

  8. Took a minute to figure out how to not let it leak. Make sure all pins are pushed all the way in. Then it will hold the water. SUPER FUN GAME!!!! My son is 6 and we had a BLAST!!!!! Great invention! Great game! ??⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Buyer beware. This game leaks before you pull the final pin. Kinda ruins the fun. Hope they get this design flaw corrected. Otherwise a great game.

    We bought the game and played it 4 times but it leaks before the correct pin is pulled. Is this supposed to do this?

  12. I fill the tank but it just all pours out?? Am I missing something??

    • You need to have all the red poles in the slots before filling the tank. This will keep the water in.

    • We had the same challenge, then realized one of the pins has to be pushed in further than others. We tried pushing all of them in again, and one snapped further in. Then like magic–the lock mechanism worked! The directions on the box didn’t say anything about this–we discovered it by chance. Glad we didn’t have to return it.

    We purchased the game, but it did not have the spinner in it.

  14. We love this game. but then again, we’re about as biased as can be. We invented it and licensed it to Zing. Still, that doesn’t mean it ain’t great. It happens to be a panic to play, we can surely vouch for that, having played it countless times with people of all ages.

    • Do you know if we can get hold of Zing for replacement parts? We lost one rod and today the hat fell off someone’s head and the piece that pushes up the plug broke off, rendering the game impossible to play. I have some sad kids.
