What little boy doesn’t like to smash things? I know my two boys do and with the hot, new collectible toys from ZURU, they can do just that. Smashers are little red balls that house wacky characters inside. To get to the character, kids have to physically smash the plastic ball on the wall or the floor. This Smashers line has a sports-based theme with over 100 good and bad characters in total. In addition, the collection includes rare, special edition, and super rare figures. Each pack also comes with a collector’s guide.
The Smashers line includes a 1-Pack, a 3-Pack, an 8-Pack, a Football Tin, a Basketball Tin, a Football bus, and a Basketball bus. Each Smashers characters is assigned a Smash Point Value. Kids can use the included collector’s guide or the available app to track their collection and see their total SMASH points. The app also lets them keep track of the characters they want. Smashers will be available at Target and Toys R’ Us March 1. They are suitable for ages 5 and up.
I received a 3-Pack, an 8-Pack, and a Basketball Tin. My boys love so many things about Smashers. They are huge sports fans, so they were fighting over who gets what as soon as they saw the package. Like many boys, they are also slightly destructive nature so they were ecstatic about smashing something without getting into trouble. In addition, they enjoyed finding their characters on the collector’s guide and trading with each other.
Smashers characters are well-made and the innovative design allows you to put the ball back together like a puzzle. The tin holds 50 characters and it is perfect for storing the figures or taking them on the go. The boys have had a blast with these toys and are already eager to collect more. They will be perfect for adding to the boys Easter baskets this year. They will also make great stocking stuffers and birthday gifts.
