Dear mummy, we’ve just seen the most amazing thing! Like a magical crystal ball revealing a secret inside. We were asked to review some Orbeez Wow World Wowzers *that’s a tongue twister*. They come with a figure hidden in a globe filled with magical clear Orbeez.
What’s cool about these is that when you’re opening the packaging you can’t see the surprise until you add water and they magically appear before your eyes! Don’t believe us? Then check out our video to see them in action.
Orbeez are super absorbent polymers (gel balls) – which start out life as small hard balls but place them in water and they expand up to 100 times their original size. The Orbeez craze isn’t slowing down anytime soon and we’ve heard about these little balls which look like marbles, but feel like jelly eyeballs before, but when you add the water to the Wowzer Surprise Magical Pets the Orbeez don’t expand they ….disappear!
We had fun playing with these globes filled with Orbeez and adding the water to reveal crazy characters. A mixture of fantasy animals and mythical creatures. You can also twist the top of your globe and watch as your Wowzer dances. There are 20 unique Wowzers in Series 1 to collect including rare and super rare figures.
They are £5.99 each and we were sent the first series which included 1 display globe, 1 random Wowzer Friend, a collectors sheet, a spin key and an instruction sheet hidden in the base of the unit. With loads of figures to collect we love the randomness of them. We discovered Katterfly, Squeaks and Fearless.
It’s great that you can reveal your pet again and again by emptying the water from the globes to hide the characters amongst the clear Orbeez. Just re-add the water to start the fun. We played a great guessing game with our three toys swapping them around on the table and trying to figure out the characters.
These kept me entertained for hours and are perfect for after school play and weekend fillers. Anything to get me away from screens is good for my mummy! Orbeez Wowser Surprise Magical Pets are available from Smyths and Argos.
