Squinkies Series 1 Review
Squinkies Series 1 first appeared in 2010 and was a massive best seller. Since then, more Squinkies have been released but any collector will want to start with the Series 1 pack.
Squinkies are tiny squishy plastic toys that come in a variety of adorable characters. The series 1 pack includes kittens, puppies, ponies and babies.
So Cute – Kids Love Them
Squinkies are tiny soft toys that kids will love to collect. They are available in bubble packs and play sets, manufactured by Blip toys out of China. You can get tons more Squinkies and accessories including a Squinkies tote case for your collection. Kids will play with them, collect them and trade them with their friends.
There are hundreds of Squinkies to collect. Series 1 is a bubble pack that includes 16 different Squinkie characters. The pack also includes a booklet with each character shown so you know which Squinkies you still have to collect.
Each Squinkie comes in a tiny, hinged clear plastic bubble — just like a gumball machine toy from the old days. The Series 1 bubble pack includes 16 Squinkies altogether – 12 pictured plus 4 hidden in inside blue, translucent balls that you can open when you get the pack.
Squinkies are recommended for kids ages 4 and up. Because of their small size, they are not recommended for children under 3.
So Cheap – Parents Love Them Too!
Squinkies Bubble Packs are pretty cheap. You can get them online for a very low price. They are great for stocking fillers at Christmas or to give away in a party bag at kids’ parties.
Squinkies are easy to clean – just rinse ’em and leave ’em to dry – and require no batteries.
They are so small, they can easily be lost – but if your kids love them, they will take care of them!
The Bottom Line
If you are looking for a tiny toy that’s affordable, collectible and lots of fun, your search is over. Little girls and boys that like itsy bitsy toys adore their Squinkies. It’s true, they’re not too high on educational value but I say that any toy that a child enjoys is worth getting – especially when it’s as cheap as these little Squinkies!
