Blip Toys recently introduced a line of teeny tiny toys that are squishy and cute. Squinkies Zinkies are a mini version of the ever so popular Squinkies. Squinkies Zinkies have the same attention to detail that regular Squinkies have, it is just that Zinkies are much smaller. In fact, they are smaller than the tip of your pinkie finger! Squinkies have earned many awards since they were launched in 2010 and after watching my son play with Zinkies for hours on end, I will not be surprised if Squinkies Zinkies earn a few awards themselves in 2012. There are currently 6 unique sets of Squinkies Zinkies that include 12 exclusive Zinkies. For a little added excitement 4 Zinkies in each set are hidden in colored balls, so your child will get four little surprises when he or she opens them up!
We have the Squinkies Zinkies Blocks and Mushroom sets. These teeny tiny toys are quite fun because each set comes with a squeezer and a magnifying glass for you to handle the Zinkies and look at the details of each little Zinkie’s face. The Zinkies come in a variety of colors and animals. They are quite cute and some of them are even sleeping!
Since Squinkies Zinkies are very small toys they are recommended for children 4 years of age and up. Zinkies may be small, but these toys will not be forgotten. My son is a few months shy of 4 years old and he absolutely loves his Squinkies Zinkies. He refers to his Zinkies as his friends. My son even named his purple Zinkie duck after himself. Recently he even started requesting snacks that he could share with his Squinkies Zinkies. Apparently, his Squinkies Zinkies really like eating cereal!
My son plays with his Squinkies Zinkies everyday. They are very small, so we keep all of his Squinkies Zinkies in a sealed bag when he is not using them. When his baby brother is awake, he simply plays at our kitchen table so his brother can’t reach any of the pieces. Our house feels a bit like toyland after just celebrating Christmas and my youngest child’s birthday, so I have to admit that I was really happy to see my son enjoy these toys that take up so little space! Zinkies truly are teeny TINY, but they result in hours of creative play and BIG fun! My son and his Zinkies have a new adventure every day. Today he organized his Zinkies by color. When his Zinkies get “tired” he places them in their plastic balls and they become a whole new toy!
You can find Squinkies Zinkies at several retailers including Target, Walmart, and Toys R Us. Have you seen Squinkies Zinkies at any stores yet?
