Squinkies Product Review



Most of you probably heard about the Squinkies craze last year before Christmas. Well I have to honestly say my kids didn't get


into it. Well atleast not last year. They began to talk about them as the new year came and went and started asking questions about them.



They began to see them in the stores and in commercial on tv. I myself didn't know much about them either.





We were contacted by Bliptoys and they were promoting Back-To-School with their collection of Boys Squinkies.





They asked if we would be interested in doing a review and of course my son was all for it (my oldest daughter was too, as she is my little tomboy).



They were anxiously awaiting the package to arrive. The one day they went to check the mail and a package was sitting on our porch


with a big Squinkies sticker on it. They started jumping up and down with excitement!!!





We brought the package into the house and began to open it.



They provided us with a variety of items to review.

Our Review of this item:

My kids love this item and how perfect right before Halloween. They said it looks Awesome!! You can store lots of your squinkies


in the Skull Cavern by twisting off the top flame part. You then insert one of the plastic coins (or you can use a dime/nickel)


and then turn the knob. With a big surprise a squinkie ball will pop out. It is a surprise each time to see which one you will


get. It works kind of like a bubble gum machine. They think it is the coolest thing. It also has 2 sections that open on either


side of it that are little play areas. You can play with your squinkies in these areas.
