I am always honest in my reviews so forgive me when I say that I personally think that Num Noms fall into the category of 'plastic tat'. Heidi and Jack LOVE them though and ever since we received them at the end of last week they have been playing with them non-stop.
Num Noms are cute scented collectable characters that can be stacked and interchanged to create different combinations (over 5000 combinations in fact).
I liken them to shopkins - kids love to collect the little characters, make their own games up and swap characters with their friends. Take a look at our unboxing video below to find out more:-
The idea is, you pick a container, add a 'Nom' then add a 'Num' to create your own wacky combination. With Series 2 there are a few savoury flavours too and the combinations are endless and can end up very silly. Cheese Burger with Grape anyone? You can take a look at a few of the different flavours available here.
Regardless of my own thoughts, there's no denying my kids are Num Nom mad, in fact Heidi has just caught me browsing the Num Noms website as I was writing this post and got a little overexcited when she thought I was ordering more. I was sorry to disappoint her so think I will surprise her with a new mystery box as she received a glowing school report today.
Series 2 features Nums who smell so delicious including Brunch Nums, Pizza Nums, Sushi Nums, Diner Food Nums, Freezie Pop Nums, Fair Food Nums, Ice Cream Nums, Cupcake Nums and Jelly Bean Nums. They can be added to a Stamp-it Nom (which feature real stamps), Go-Go Noms who move around, Gloss-Up Noms (scented lip gloss) or Erase-it Noms.
If your kids are like my three, they might like playing on the Num Noms online recipe maker too.
Num Noms are available from all good toy shops including Toys R Us, Smyths and The Entertainer from just £2.99 for a mystery pack, making them an ideal pocket money toy to collect. I would say if your children are aged 4-9 they are likely to LOVE these little guys. Heidi and Jack have spent the evening shooting their own Num Noms movie. If it's good enough, I'll share that soon.
