Poonicorns – a combination of Unicorns and Emoji Poo

Poonicorns are the latest creation from Bandai toys, combining two of the hottest trends ‘unicorns’ and ’emoji poo’.  The plush collection contains an array of different size characters including little blind packs of Squishiez so let’s take a look below.

Although I’m not the biggest fan of emoji poo, my 7yr old little boy is and along with that is fascinated by the lastest unicorn craze so these ‘Poonicorns’ have been a huge hit with him and covered both bases.  What I really like about them is their bright neon colours which help you forget the emoji poo aspect and then they have the unicorn elements in the form of a yellow horn and rainbow hair.

My 7yr old just adores his Poonicorn pillow which at approximately 40cm tall is a great size along with being ultra soft and cuddly.  It lives on his bed and is cuddled religiously every night!

Smaller Pooincorns in the range include a 9cm hanging Plushiez, 6.5cm Droplingz, and a 15cm Plushiez priced at £3.99, £4.99 and £6.99 respectively.  This makes them great prices for pocket money or gift items.  They are all really soft too, meaning kids love to cuddle them and the clips allow them to be hung to bags or used as keyrings etc.

The Droplingz come in brightly coloured specked eggs which add to the excitement of not knowing which one you will get inside.  My boy also loved the egg casing and has kept it to play with.

Last but not least are the little collectible Squishiez Poonicorns (shown in the picture below alongside a Droplingz egg) which each come in a single coloured round plastic ball but you won’t know until you open it which colour you will get. The casing also doubles up as a little stand to display your Squishiez on and my little boy has these displayed along his windowsill.  These characters are soft and squidgy and are fun to play with.

How cute are these once on show in there little egg stands?

So I think you can tell these have been a big hit with my boy – he loves his collectibles along with emoji poo and unicorns so I think Poonicorns are the perfect answer to his favourite things!!

Have your kids caught onto the latest Poonicorn craze yet?

Shrinkles Mini Packs – Dinosaurs, Unicorns & Puppies

Shrinkles Mini Packs come in a variety of designs and we’ve been trying out the Dinosaur World, Magical Unicorns and Playful Puppies.  Although they’ve been around for many years they aren’t something I did as a child so I was excited to do them with my children and see what they thought about them.

Inside each mini pack are two sheets of pre drawn Shrinkles, a coloured and transparent piece of Shrinkle paper, a 4 pack of coloured pencils, some stands for the finished pieces and instructions.

It was then a case of colouring in the pre printed designs in the theme for each box.  The children enjoyed this but didn’t quite understand the concept of how much they would shrink until we’d ‘baked’ our first batch.

I was a little worried when I saw the designs curling up in the oven but if you leave them a little longer, you will then see them flatten out again.  At this point I removed them from the oven and left them to cool.  The children couldn’t believe how much they had shrunk and also were impressed how they had become solid and hard, like a 2D plastic figurine.  They then put them on stands ready to play with.

Then we had a go at making our own designs using the plain pieces of Shrinkles paper.  My daughter carefully traced the outline of a front cover of a book she is reading which came out really well.  They also tried some other designs and below you can see the best of what they made,  I think they came out really well and are now sitting as trinkets on the shelves in their bedrooms.

Overall Shrinkles has been a success.  It was something new to us that the children enjoyed trying out and had fun making.  They loved watching them shrink through the glass in the oven door, which was novel and different, resulting in finished pieces that are sturdy and will last for a little play afterwards.
