My kids have had a fascination with Orbeez since we discovered them earlier this year. They are these cool water beads that you can do so much with and brings about great imaginative play. They first played with the Orbeez Crusher set where they could make food out of the crushed Orbeez. While I was at Sweet Suite in New York, I saw some of the latest creations and fun from Orbeez. Orbeez Wow World Wowzer Surprise is this tiny little globe that plays on the whole “blind bag” type craze.
The toy comes wrapped and is the shape of a mini fish bowl/globe. When the kids peel back the outer layer, the bowl is filled with clear Orbeez. Water is added to the globe and the surprise toy inside is revealed. The look on my kids faces when they saw what toy was inside was just so precious. When a toy brings a smile to your child’s face it is just the best!
The surprise toy inside can be taken out and played with much like other mini figures and toys. Of course, now my kids want a few more so that they can collect a village. The water can be emptied over and over again and new Orbeez used to fill the globe. We want to try out the water surprise with a different color Orbeez and see if we can see through it. I just have to remind my kids to only play with the water part of it while on the tile and not in their playroom!
The new Orbeez Wow World Wowzer Surprise retails at around $5.99. Maya Toys was smart to really jump on the surprise toy craze with this one and at this affordable price, you can get few to unwrap and would make great stocking stuffers as well. Seriously, put these on your list as a another must have toy this season.
