The game was a simple one. The inner game box (the Grab Box) had holes cut in each side. Players drew cards on top of it to determine what type of object they should hunt for - each one was a small plastic or rubber figure such as an animal or a common household item. The players would each in turn put their hand into the box and try to retrieve the correct one based on the sense of touch alone.
Though not uncommon today, Feeley Meeley was only produced for about one year; the novelty might have worn off quickly to kids who owned the game. But kids could continue to amuse themselves by putting real insects and other gross or disgusting items inside the box and making their younger siblings seek them out (not that this author would know anything about that).
