Review of Zoobles Girls Toys


All I hear at the moment is 'Mummy, have you seen my bunny?' in Miss E's cute little voice.  What is not so cute is that off we have to go again and look for her beloved Zoobles ball.  Last week the girls were sent a Zooble each to have a play with and see what they thought of them.  The response has been mixed.  Miss M tells me she loves it and it is great but she has not played with it since the moment she has opened it and nor do we know where it is now!

Miss E on the other hand is in love with her Bunny!  As is big brother JJ, which was a surprise to me.  These toys are targeted at girls of 4 years plus but I think the ball turn animal with the magnet spring action appeals to JJ's sense of gadget.  A few times that Miss E and I have been on our hunt we have found the Zooble in JJ's room! So the appeal of these is fairly wide with both my 3 year old girl and 7 year old boy loving them.

So what is a Zooble?  Well they are little balls (smaller than a golfball) that when placed on their happitat pop open.  Miss E has a bunny and it has legs and ears that pop up and Miss M has a fish which has fins and a tail that pops up.  When you press the ears or 'pet' the Zooble it blinks or twitches depending on which one it is  - cute, for about 2 seconds in my opinion, but what do I know? I am 37 and they were not aimed at me.  Miss E is nearly 4 and they are aimed at her and she adores it!

Pros - Lots of different designs to choose from and collect, Miss E and JJ seem to love them, small enough to go in your pocket and transport about, fairly sturdy for such a small toy.

Cons - I think they are a bit pricey at £5.99 RRP for a single Zooble with its happitat

The kids tell me these deserve a 5/5 rating as they are great! These may just be the next 'must have' toy, they are made by Spin Master who also make the Bakugan line of toys.

Zoobles are available to buy from good toy shops and supermarkets such as Toys R us and Sainsburys.



This is a review, we were sent 2 Zoobles toys to review.  I was not instructed what to write, the words are my own and I remain honest.

  1. Glad to see another boy like Zoobles too. I got H a flashing tadpole one (I think) and he loves it. Great little toys and don't take up loads of space!
