Zoobles – Spring to life! That’s the tag line for Spin master’s newest range of toys aimed at girls aged 4 and up. Zoobles are incredibly cute beautifully decorated little creatures rolled up in a ball, which when placed on their special “Happitat” (or home to you and me) will spring open.
I can guarantee you that every girl from the age of 4 will go absolutely potty for these little balls, they are insanely cute. It’s not often that I take a picture of a toy still in the packaging, but for Zoobles I made an exception as even the box looks gorgeous! These are going to look amazing on the shelves, and also must have for the little girls.
Zoobles are very basically Bakugan for girls, they work in exactly the same way as the Bakugan balls do. Both have magnets inside which make the balls pop open. The Zoobles Happitat work the same way as Bakugan‘s Metal gate cards do. Although that is where the similarity ends, as there is no game behind Zoobles they are just the cutest things on the planet and that’s enough.
My favourite feature of the Zoobles is that when popped open, you can pet them by pressing down on their head and their eyes close a little and their arms bob in and out like they are giving you a hug. It kind of looks like the contented expression a cat makes when you stroke their head. I wasn’t going to say it again… but I will, They are soooo cute!
My Zooble is called Arcty from the Chillsville Collection, but there are 6 different lands where the Zoobles live and play
- Petal Point
Where your Zooble comes from will add to the play experience, as it will have an impact on your Zoobles name and design. Being from Chillsville my Zooble Arcty has an icy snowflake design, but Zoobles from Seagonia will have an underwater theme.
As well as the little home or Happitat that your Zooble comes with, there will also be play sets available for when you need somewhere bigger and more fun for all of your Zoobles to play together. As Zoobles roll up into balls most of the playsets consist of lots of slides and hills for the Zoobles to roll around on.
Zoobles will be available in single packs, or packs of 2 called a Twoble pack. There will also be special edition Zoobles, Light up versions and also Hairdoobles.
Zoobles are released in the UK on January 17th, and are guaranteed to be a huge success in 2011. Mark my words if you have a young daughter you will be buying a Zoobles Playset from them this year!
