Zuru Smashers Series 2 are collectibles aimed at kids of 5 and over
There is no doubt about collectibles for kids are huge and Halloween is getting bigger every year
This year we decided to throw a small party for Big L and a couple of his friends with the help of Zuru toys.
Regular readers will know that we reviewed a Zuru Toys Robo Alive Spider recently and were very impressed you can check it out here. If you aren’t a regular reader you really should be. I’m incredibly entertaining – especially on Facebook (here). I should come with a profanity warning though
Zuru kindly sent us some of their grossest and scariest toys to keep the boys entertained, along with a few decorations.
We decorated the dining area and set the table with the Zuru Toys ready with the toys for the boys to put to the test
At 4pm some very excited little devils (well one devil, a ghost and a pumpkin) turned up. They headed for the Halloween, erm, grotto and were thrilled to see the toys that were waiting for them.
They went straight for the Series 2 Gross Smashers.
The Zuru Smashers Series 2 Gross were divided up and duly thrown on the floor one at a time
Zuru Smashers Series 2 Gross are made to look like eyeballs and they contain a collectible figure
The Zuru Smashers Series 2 figures range from “Common” to “Ultra Rare”
Obviously the Ultra Rare are the ultimate goal. The idea is to throw the eyeball – the aptly names “Smashball” on the floor which “shatters” revealing the collectible inside.
Each of the Smashers Series 2 Gross collectibles come from a different range:
Ultra Rare Ooze Dudes
Glow In The Dark
Rare Awful Animals
Big L scored an “Ultra Rare Ooze Dude” which was in a packet and was covered in slime. Cue lots of “ewww groooossss” accompanied by admiration! The Smashball shells come with instructions to remake them too so they are not wasted.
Next they took turns playing with the Oosh Slime
I’ll be honest I don’t get the hype where Slime is concerned but the boys were overjoyed getting it all over their hands. We were sent some rainbow slime which has layers of different coloured slime but it comes in all sorts of colours.
The Oosh Fun Foam was met with some trepidation
Until they found out this one glows in the dark – kids love stuff that glows in the dark! The Foam is an unusual consistency and has small beads in it. It is kind of like modelling clay and you can create shapes with it.
Finally, the Robo Alive Spider
Big L wanted to give this one away as he already has one so they played an impromptu game of pass the spider and the winner got to keep it. The winner was very pleased with his prize!
