Last week we received a very special box filled with some fabulous Pinypon products. I was first introduced to pinypon at the toy fair in January and straight away I could see their appeal. Pinypon are plastic characters that allow you to swap the parts and mix them around with other characters. Each character comes with a reversible face so they have two different expressions and a hollow head to help store the accessories.
We were sent a variety of Pinypon some of which are available now and some which will be available to purchase later in 2016. Pinypon are available at the Entertainer and start at just £2.99 making them a fantastic pocket money toy. They are available in blind bags or in the packs shown below.
The clear packet allows you to pick the character of your choice and the new figure with pet sets will be on special offer in the entertainer and selected toymaster stores as a great introduction to the brand. Elizabeth loves the Pinypon figures but she couldn’t wait to get her hands on the one with its own pet.
Later in the year Pinypon will be getting a fairy tale makeover and you will be able to get the fairy tale figure sets with animal. We were sent the Mary Poppins character but you will also be able to find Little red riding hood, Rapunzel, Pinocchio, Peter Pan and Pocahontas. There will also be a Fairy Tales House available which will come with a Cinderella figure.
The set we loved the most is the Prince and Princess set which costs £9.99 and is available now in the Entertainer and Toys R Us. The Prince and Princess set comes in a fantastic crown shape box which makes it a great present and includes a frog prince and loads of accessories to really get the kids imaginations flowing.
The Princess carriage which is also available now in the Entertainer and Toys R Us costs just £14.99 and is a great value playset which comes with a princess figure, opening carriage, treasure chest and lots of small accessories. It is the perfect carriage to get the princess to the castle and really inspires imaginative play.
The final item we received is the Love From… Pinypon magazine. What I didn’t realise at first is that the Love From magazine features a different brand each issue and the issue we were sent features Pinypon throughout. It had a lot of little gifts on the front and inside was lots of activities and a poster. We are going to keep an eye out for future issues of Love From magazine as it was aimed at the perfect level for the girls to enjoy.
We really enjoyed receiving this parcel from Bandai and checking out all the different Pinypon sets. You can see our unboxing video below to get our initial reactions to the items we were sent.
