Squinkies are All the Rage!!

Squishy, squooshy, squashy and totally adorable, Squinkies is the eagerly awaited new collectible mini doll and pet, accessory and playset line destined to be the hottest new must-have kids’ collectible toy sensation!  Squinkies’ friend and pet figures come encased in unique toy plastic bubbles. Pop open the bubble and you’ll find a Squinkies surprise inside

Not since my oldest’s Polly Pocket phase have I seen such a big to-do for a toy set and I now know why!  We received a set of 16 dolls, a Gumball Surpize playset, a bracelet, and jewel case and my 4 year old has played with it non stop for a week!  Every day the different combinations of animals and babies make for hours of imaginative play that is fun to play alone, with a parent, or with siblings and friends.  The toys are completely adorable and so soft, perfect for collecting, and their miniature sized products are great for storing and not taking up too much room in the house!

I love the idea of the gumball playhouse.  It stores all the toys inside their balls, so it’s it’s double duty something that moms love!  Open the doors and you find the backdrop to a playhouse.  The set comes with 9 Squinkies, beds, tables, chairs and two plastic coins for the gumball dispenser (you can use dimes and pennies too!).  Insert the coin and turn the nob and out comes a Squinkie from the door below, a surprize everytime!

*special note–from our experience the Squinkies can come out of their ball in the gumball.  If this happens they an open ball will get lodged in the dispenser and has to be remedied by a parent.  This caused some frustration.  Also, use only one coin at a time, slowly or they will also jam!  I had to slide some cardboard in there to dislodge many times!

The Share and Wear Princess Surprize bracelet was a huge hit.  Though it only comes with 4 Squinkies and six clips for the bracelet, we had plenty other Squinkies from our bubble pack to make up for it.  You can interchange this a million different ways and each Squinkie has a hole on the bottom to attach to clips.  The set also comes with a ring to attach a Squinkie to!  My daughter went having all babies on it, to all animals, to all ‘princess’ items, it was fun.

*special note-not to be warn during active play, the Squinkies may fall off!!

Overall these new toys will continue to be a hit in our household.  My son has taken a few of the animals and placed them on his pencils as toppers!  I would welcome more of this type of toy in our household to ensure many hours of creative play!
