Squinkies Review...

There is a new toy in town...SQUINKIES!  Squinkies are tiny, squishy dolls that come inside their own little bubble.  These little dolls are adorable, ranging from kids to pets to babies and more....the little faces are just irresistible.  Squinkies can be played with on their own, reside atop a pencil and, even better, are the Squinkies have a full line of fun accessories.

I was sent the Squinkies Cupcake Surprize! Bake Shop to review and it was a huge hit.  The Squinkies act as "gumballs" in their little bubbles and once you insert your Squinkies coin (2 included but pennies and dimes work too) out pops a Squinkie!  The gumball feature of the Squinkies sets it apart from other miniature sets.  My kids enjoyed the gumball aspect of it the most.  Insert a coin and get a "Squinkies Surprize" = fun at my house.  After the gumball machine fun there is a whole play set inside the bake shop as well as little accessories like a table and chairs.  It is a tiny and easily portable play set...I love that part! 

On top of different series of the Squinkies Dolls and The Cupcake Surprize Bake Shop there are a bunch of accompanying accessories.    There are cute jewelry cases like these...





And a must have for the Squinkies collector is the Palace Surprise which holds 96 Squinkies figures and can be easily toted around...

I think Squinkies are destined to be one of the *BIG* toys this holiday season.  They are adorable miniatures with fun play sets that are interactive and portable.  Big thumbs up from this mom!  You can find out more about Squinkies on their Facebook, Twitter and their Website.  Squinkies can be purchased at Target, Wal-Mart, Toys R Us, Amazon and more!  Be sure Squinkies find their way onto your holiday list this year....your child will not be disappointed!

I was provided with a variety of  Squinkies for purpsose of review.  The opinions expressed are my own and have not been edited or reviewed by anyone.
