Squinkies Bubble Packs {Review & Giveaway}

29536_128779177148023_128778917148049_271355_2621218_n Are you still looking for a great new toy for your child for Christmas? Or how about a birthday- my daughter’s birthday is only a few short weeks after Christmas so I always need to think about both when I do my holiday shopping. Well look no further, Blip Toys brings you Squinkies! I knew that these toys would be perfect for my five and six year old daughters when I saw them!

 

About Squinkies (from their blog):

Squishy, squooshy, squashy and totally adorable, Squinkies is the eagerly awaited new mini doll and pet, accessory and playset line destined to be the hottest new must-have kids’ collectible toy sensation.

Squinkies friend and pet dolls come encased in unique toy plastic bubbles.  Pop open the bubble and you’ll find a Squinkies surprise inside!

Squinkies come in a bubble pack which includes 16 different friends each in their own bubble, including four surprise friends that are in colored bubbles that you can’t see through, so it’s a surprise every time! I love that they don’t sell these individually so that you can start your collection with a large amount of Squinkies. My kids have already seen the Squinkies but these would make great stocking stuffer gifts or even a great gift for a birthday party.

Squinkies also has a website online where you can print coloring book pages, mazes and dot to dot activity sheets. You can also keep track of your collection online with a username and password.

We were sent the new Squinkies Bubble Packs from Series 7, 8 and 9. My girls love them- as long as we make sure to keep them out of our 2 1/2 year olds hands they’ll stay in great condition and be a toy they enjoy for years to come.

I know they’re small but you don’t have to worry about loosing Squinkies because they also sell the cutest play sets that will hold Squinkies.  I think my girls would really like the Tea Time Surprize Playset. These play coin dispenser playsets are sold at a variety of price points to accommodate any budget. Each playset is creatively themed with great detail and come with plastic toy bubbles with Squinkies inside plus accessories. These playsets are similar to gumball machines where you can turn the knob and the Squinkies come rolling out, the Tea Time Surprize Playset is shaped like a tea pot.

Buy It: Squinkies Bubble Packs ($9,99 ARV) and other accessories can be found at major retailers including Wal-Mart, Toys R Us, Target and Amazon.

Win It: One lucky reader will win one Bubble Pack of 16 Squinkies!
