Psst! We have new friends staying at The Tiger Tales HQ! The enchanting Shnooks are with us. These delightful creatures were born in the magical place where a rainbow meets a waterfall, popped from bubbles. Season 1 was launched in 2017. In 2018, Series 2 will be just as super cute with adorable candy colouring. They are from Candy Nook, in Shnook Brook. My lil Shnookums is enjoying her new plushie pals Shnooks.
Straight Outta Candy Nook
Series 2 Shnooks has six collectible characters- Berri, Lolli, Bubbles, Mello, Lulu and Beanie Each pack has one Shnook, RRP £7. They are suitable for ages 3+ years. We were sent three to trial:
- Bubbles (bubble gum scented)
- Lolli (lollipop scented )
- Mello (marshmallow scented)
They arrived in a flat and vac packed ‘bubble’. Once the ‘bubble’ was opened, a vigorous shake made them grow in size. The USP is that they grow 8x their size. When we tried they did fluff up and grow in size but I’m not certain if it was 8x their original size. I should mention, because of the fluffing some fur strands were released, not excessive but it did tickle our noses a bit.
Firstly, we are a big hair household, so it cool having big hair friends in the house. Valentina is not versed in hair styling yet but Shnooks allows her to try her hand at it. Each Shnooks came with a candy scented comb and best friend hairband, and styled hair ties. The comb is perfectly sized for little hands to use and the teeth have sufficient spacing to allow easy hair styling. The fur didn’t tangle. Using the hairbands was tricky for Valentina, so I helped her. No two Shnooks are likely to look the same; little ones can get creative and style them anyway they like.
Best of all, Shnooks are easily portable. They can be carried in rucksacks or medium sized purses. Older kids may prefer carry them attached to their bags as an accessory. Valentina prefers toys that she take on the go with her. Shnooks can even fit in her winter coat pocket. How good is that, eh? She loved having her fragrant cuddly pals with her for car journeys and shopping trips.
