Okay I have a 7 year old and a 10 year little boys. When I had them something and tell them to smash it watch out! Both of their eyes lite up with a naughty glee before they let lose and started to smash those little balls on the floor! Afterwards they would run forward to see what little surprise awaited them inside. After they were done smashing I gave them the Basketball court/vehicle so they could take turns launching their new toys into a hoop (It also works as a holder for the smashers) My boys LOVE them. Not only was it fun to smash they open, but they also love the surprise aspect and the fact that they could play with them afterwards!
But wait not wasn't the only toy we got to try. My kids always love "surprise" type toys when you just never know what is going to be inside. That is why 5 surprise is perfect for them.
5 Surprise Surprise...it’s 5 Surprise!
This new collectible line from ZURU harnesses the anticipation and excitement of “unboxing” a surprise combined with the addictiveness of collectables. Unwrap, peel, reveal! Kids will love opening their 5 Surprise capsules almost as much as the toys inside. Wave 1 will feature over 300 toys in pink and blue capsules with additional waves introducing 100 new toys every six months. There are five different themed segments with a HUGE range of boys and girls toys, resulting in thousands of combinations of surprise toys, making 5 Surprise the coolest, most unique capsules ever!
You get a baseball size ball with 5 small toys inside. When you open your toy there is orange type slices that you need to open and see what treasure lays within. My only complaint is we pretty much got the same toys :( I was thinking since we got several balls they would all be different, but most of the little toys were the same.
Smashers will be available at Target and Toys R Us on March 1. And 5 Surprise will be available at Walmart and Toys R Us on March 1, as well.
