I will be pointing our suggesto-meter to websites where you can order these cool things so that you can stuff a safe and socially-distanced stocking. One of our entries will be for a website where everything is cheap.
Keep these ideas in mind, and be sure to order early so you have them in time for the holidays.
5 Surprise “blind box” toys from Zuru are one of the hottest kids collectibles on the market right now. They have innovative packaging, a small portable size and are priced just right for kids to obsess over. Among the popular lines in this program are Glitter Unicorn Squad , Mini Brands, Toy Mini Brands and Dino Strike, as well as new series of 5 Surprise aimed at boys or girls (or you can switch ’em if you’re not hung up on the gender thing).
5 Surprise Mini-Brands hit stores before Christmas last year and while they flew under the radar of adults, they became an instant hit with kids, selling out almost everywhere and garnering over half a billion views for a viral campaign on Tik Tok and YouTube.
5 Surprise Unicorn Squad lets kids collect all 13 sassy squad members, from ballerinas to bubblegum babes and RARE golden unicorns. There is alos a glitter variety.
5 Surprise Dino-Strike lets kids build dinosaurs, who have missile-firing weapons. If the real dinosaurs had missile-firing weapons they might still be around.
5 Surprise Mini Brands are exact realistic miniatures of some of the world’s most loved shopping brands. Inside each package (more on that later) you will find tiny replicas of popular name-brand food items, candy, shampoo, deodorant and other household essentials. Kids love these because kids love miniature stuff. These are highly collectible, with some rare “chase” items featuring metallic or glow-in-the-dark highlights. Each package includes a checklist, which is cleverly designed to look like a full-color cash register receipt, and some packages include buildable extras like shopping carts, shelfs or baskets.
5 Surprise Toy Mini Brands take the hot miniature collectible trend to a new level with the introduction of Toy Mini Brands, a range of realistic miniature replicas of classic and contemporary toy brands. Through a partnership with Nickelodeon/Viacom, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, SpongeBob SquarePants JoJo Siwa are among the toy brands that will be miniaturized and hit store shelves across the globe this year. In addition, iconic and popular brands such as Classic Rubik’s, Crayola and Wham-O join the Toy Mini Brands portfolio. These are out now, and they’re pretty darned cool.
The 5 Surprise Pink (girls) and Blue (boys) series are filled with all kinds of cool things that kids will love.
The 5 Surprise line combines the thrill of old-school gumball machines with an upgraded sensibility that brings much higher-quality to the world of kid-oriented trinketry. These cool globes, a bit bigger than a baseball, will fit into a stocking and bring smiles to the faces of the folks digging into them. With plenty of different series and types of toys involved, you’re bound to find something perfect for your loved one.
