My boys love little collectable toys we have had more than our fair share of Moshi’s residing with us in our time, so when an opportunity came to review some Num Noms ahead of the official launch on the 28th I thought why not. Yes they are probably more pitched for girls the characters are cutesy and most of them have ribbon detail in their hair but I thought they would like seeing what they were about anyway. Plus some of the figures have boy names like Billy Banana so why shouldn’t they get a chance to see what all the fuss was about.
I was right they love that they are scented a complete novelty compared to all the other collectibles we have ever had before! They have enjoyed stacking them to make their own “flavour” ice cream. Ideally you pick a Num to compliment a Nom, but ours just added them all to the pile for one epic flavoursome sundae!
We had a cup but you can get cones too as you build up your collection. Some of the scents are quite strong (vanilla was whilst others much more subtle like the lemon). The boys have seen some more characters they would like based on the scents (Bailey Bubblegum and Cherry Chip). Pinkie lemonade smelt divine, of strawberry lemonade so I would recommend that one personally!
There was one num nom (the go-go!) that could move around when you pushed the button on top and that was an instant hit! Anything vehicle like goes down well here and of course the lip-gloss that came too (gloss-up) was very well received. I think these feel like better value for money with the extra details, collectibles have never been so much fun!
The packaging was appealing; the mystery pots especially look like little ice cream tubs. These would make lovely gifts for birthdays and parties.
