ZURU has brought back Shnooks, the super-soft, super-cute plush toys that go from bubble to best friend in seconds! These colorful balls of fluff are born in Shnook Brooke, a magical place where rainbows meet waterfalls. First released in 2008, Shnooks arrive in a shnubble-bubble pack and when opened and given a little shake, they grow eight times their size. There are six characters to collect, each with a fun, unique personality.
Every Shnook comes with 3 hair accessories so kids can style those wild locks. Kids can also visit Shnook Brooke online to play games, learn more about each character, and even customize their own. They are available at Wal-Mart for $8.99 each.
I somehow missed the first gneration of Shnooks, so this is my first experience with them. The package they come in is pretty thin so I was eager to see how much they really grew. Even my boys were asking to open the “bubble” (vacuum sealed packaging) and find out. The plush toys did grow, though not necessarily eight times their packaged size. The kids didn’t seem to notice however, and they were just intrigued that they grew at all.
There is no denying that these toys have some pretty wild hair. It is very colorful and it stands straight up similar to a troll droll. These adorable plush toys are soft and cuddly. They are also the perfect size for carrying around or taking in the car. The kids have had a blast styling their hair, even the boys, though they would never admit it
