Squinkies: Review & Giveaway

***Giveaway Now Closed***
Congratulations to A Daily Woman

Have you heard of Squinkies?  The little balls with the "surprize" inside.  Well, hot on the heels of the hugely successful Squinkies launch, comes their new line of Squinkies for boys!

Blip Toys says, "It’s a one-inch world of imaginative fun! Boasting highly detailed characters, a unique tactile “squishy” feel, an extensive number and variety of characters, plus the introduction of game play and dispensers.  Squinkies have firmly established a unique category of their own in the toy aisles. Unique only to Squinkies, each collectible figure comes encased in an added play value plastic toy bubble that pops open to reveal its precious content. For added fun and intrigue, each of their bubble packs, have “hidden” characters packaged in frosted bubbles that conceal their treasure and offer an exciting element of surprise. With hundreds of figures to collect, trade and share, Squinkies offers kids the ability to enjoy endless hours of imaginative game play as they create their very own Squinkies world.  And as an added bonus, Squinkies also make great pencil toppers!"

What did C and the girls think?  They love them.  They love the squinkies themselves, they love the toy bubbles and I have been amazed at the many different ways of creative play they have used.

 My kids have been loving this Cars pack!

C was so excited when we opened the Cars Bubble Pack - he is clutching it in this photo.

 The cars inside.

 C's favorite Cars squinkies are Lightning McQueen and Mater! 

 Even D wanted to play with them.

Basically my kids think these are awesome and I have been informed that Squinkies are not only on their birthday lists but Christmas as well :)

A few other products in the line of Squinkies for boys are the Skull Cavern playset and the Bubble pack Series 1-3.

Squinkies Boys Skull Cavern Playset

"Store and dispense your Squinkies in this awesome playset! Load up to 20 Squinkies in the top, insert magic coin (or nickel or dime) and turn the dial for a Squinkies surprize!  Opens to reveal two top-secret thrones to display your Squinkies power!  Comes with 6 exclusive Squinkies."

"Squinkies Skull Cavern Playset received a perfect score from WTS Toy Review winning 5 out of 5 stars for ease of use, durability, visual appeal, functionality, cost efficiency and originality."

 Squinkies Boys Bubble Packs Series 1-3

"Sports, monsters, aliens, superheros, warriors - themed just for boys!  Each bubble pack includes 14 different Squinkies and 2 bonus battle dice.  Booklet included with battle game rules.  Squinkies Boys: Compete. Combat. Collect."

Now, onto the giveaway.  One person will receive a Squinkies "surprize" pack which will include the Boys Skull Cavern Playset mentioned above ($19.99 value) and the complete Bubble Packs Series 1-3 ($9.99 value/each).  That's a $50 value!!  Thank you Blip Toys for sponsoring this giveaway.
