Meet Shnooks, the cuddly, fun plush toys that grow eight times their size when released from their packaging and given a little shake. Originally released by ZURU in 2008, this new generation of lovable characters includes Shmiley, Shine, Shay, Shazam, Shweetly, and Shnuggles. Each one has a unique personality as well as a head full of outrageous hair. With the included accessories, kids can enjoy hours of styling fun.
Fans can also visit Shnook Brooke online to play games, watch videos, learn more about the characters, and even customize their very own. They can also download posters to decorate their room. These plush toys are available at Wal-Mart for under $10. They are intended for ages 3 and up.
Shnooks are new to me, so I was eager to find out what they were all about. My boys were even anxious to find out how much they grow, though they would never admit it. We popped open the shnubble-bubble and gave the plush toy a little shake and sure enough, it grew. I am not certain it grew to eight times its size, but the kids didn’t seem to care. At this point, they were more intrigued with the wild hair. The accessories included a comb, two clips and four hair bands so kids can get creative with different hair-dos. My youngest enjoys brushing and styling the hair. She also loves how soft they are.
These toys are cuddly making them perfect for play, naptime, bedtime, or taking on the go. I have checked out Shnook Brooke online and though my little is still too young, I think kids will really enjoy it. The website gives a short introduction to each character and kids can create their very own. They can also download full-color posters or ones that they can color themselves. The posters would make great room decor!
