Squinkies

So... if you have never heard of the popular toys Squinkies, let me explain them to you!  Squinkies are miniature sized dolls and animals that come encased in clear transparent bubbles.  Squinkies come in a package of 16 ,  four of them are "Surprise Squinkies" .  Surprise Squinkies are hidden in a darker bubble so you can not identify the squinkie until you open up the bubble.  Squinkies are about the size of a large gumball and are made out of soft and squishy plastic and do not contain latex.

 In addition to Squinkies,  they also offer Play sets,  Display Cases,  and Jewelery accessories.  Squinkies and accessories are manufactured by Blip Toys and can be found at most major retailers including:  Target,  Toys R Us,  and Amazon.com.  Their product line includes: Dogs,  Babies,  Frogs,  Pigs,  and many more!    Please note,  Squinkies are not recommended for young children as they can choke on the Product and or the products plastic encasing.  You can collect them,  share them,  and play with them! 

Squinkies kindly sent me several of their Squinkie packs to possibly review.  My sons loved playing with Squinkies!  My oldest son used them as pencil toppers!  They actually have a hole in the bottom that fits inside of a pencil.  Their favorite was the Frog Squinky along with the Pony Squinkie!  They loved squashing the Squinkies with their hands and watching them return to their normal shape.  They really seemed to like the "Surprise Squinkies". 

They are about one inch to one inch and a half tall and make a great educational tool.  Help your kids improve their counting skills by telling them to count each Squinky.  My sons had a blast counting their Squinkies and organizing them in different catagories.  They are brightly colored and a great way to keep your kids entertained.  Squinkies are reasonably priced and an overall great value for your money.  There are many accessories that can be purchased for Squinkies such as Playsets and Bubble Banks,  also Dispensers!  To learn more about Squinkies please visit their site here. 

*Disclaimer- Blip Toys sent me several Squinky packs to possibly review.  In no way did this alter my opinion of their products.  All of my opinions are one hundred percent honest and true.*
