Brain Game: Meet Jill


Say "hi" to young Jill, whose likes and dislikes will help you solve today's Brain Game Free-for-all Friday challenge. Good luck!

Jill likes to color but isn't a fan of finger-painting. She would rather wear pajamas than a dress. She enjoys traveling by airplane but not by train. Jill would rather swing on an old tire than go down a slide. With all these in mind, which part of Mr. Potato Head does Jill like best? mustache, nose, eyebrows

Here is the ANSWER.


Jill prefers Mr. Potato Head's MUSTACHE.

Jill likes things that have alternate British spellings: COLOR/COLOUR, PAJAMAS/PYJAMAS, AIRPLANE/AEROPLANE, and TIRE/TYRE. So her favorite attachment for the Spud Guy would naturally be his MUSTACHE/MOUSTACHE.

NOTE: These puzzles sometimes lend themselves to alternate "correct" answers. If you came up with one, feel free to share it with us in the comments below. And have a great weekend!
