We were sent a Spyro for my eldest son, who is a little hooked on the whole Skylanders concept. He has books, t-shirts, heaps of the figures for the Wii and the bedding. I always wondered why they had not expanded the range to include soft toys, but thankfully now they have. But we were sent something a little different with the squishables (RRP £6.99). Hubbie loves the texture he thinks its great for stress relief! Eldest wants to keep it as an “ornament” – just to admire respectfully from afar and youngest just wants to stretch it to an inch of its life… seeing the eyes bulge is a particular highlight! Poor Spyro seems to be coping well with the strains of life in the hands of a four year old!
For £6.99 it is surprising it is managing to keep everyone happy, which is no easy task let me tell you! Since half term descended my two boys have reached new heights of high maintenance… all the squishing, squeezing and stretching of their toy has got to be helping get rid of some pent up energy!
There are four to collect, Trigger Happy, Gill Grunt, Spyro and Eruptor, so not too expensive to get them all (unlike eldest with his epic set of 52 figures to play in the wii…).
