5.0 out of 5 stars Balls of Fun!, August 10, 2010

This review is from: Zoobles Special Edition Single Pack Sea Lion + Happitat (Toy)
Walking through a local store I happened across these cute little figures and well... being me I jumped on them! About two hours and several bills later I sat at home to enjoy these at my coffee table.

First of all Zoobles are some kind of wonderful crossbreed between Littlest Pet Shop and Bakugan. Little creatures composed of springy parts that fold into a small ball, they turn back to a critter when placed on their included dwelling (they're eyes even move!). Their decorations fall somewhere between groovy-disco and a Mexican sugar-skull, with small hollows even molded in which adds to their delicate look. Well, I say "look" because I'm not going to break mine to test their sturdiness, sorry. As always, I say obey the age recommendation (4+ years).

Now the fun part! playing with these is guaranteed fun, as balls they roll, when placed on their "happitats" they spring up instantly. This seal (it says "sea lion" but it has no ears so it's a seal. XD) is one of the ones I picked up. It's labeled as a special edition, but all that means is you pay an extra 2-3$ for metallic paint. It doesn't do anything special that the others don't (It's eyes change one extra way that's barely noticeable and it comes with stickers). Other than the extra charge the seal is very cute, especially the tail.

So Positives: Cute, intricate, colorful, various animals, numbered for easy collecting, made for creative play. :)

Negatives: Possibly fragile, could have included a game aspect (like Bakugan) but doesn't, has metal springs that can rust if you submerge them,

Overall, I'm loving them, and I'm betting they'll be a big holiday hit this year. If you're uncertain about them I'd suggest you go see them in person, they're absolutely charming! just make sure the recipient kid treats their toys gently, they do feel a bit fragil
