Dear Mummy, I was very excited when some happy mail arrived for me! I call it happy mail because it was brand new toys all the way from the States! It came on an airplane and everything! I can’t wait to introduce these brand new toys to you guys which have just launched in the UK called Nanables!
The world of Nanables is a colourful, ultra-small, whimsical world of imaginative lands with detailed “eye-candy” dwellings with Nanos, the unique inhabitants who call them home. Tiny, tiny little people!
These guys are so small! And each little building can fit on the palm of my hand! I spent ages studying them and the attention to detail is amazing! There’s little windows you can look through and peek inside!
There are two themed lands to collect and explore, Sweetness Town and Rainbow Way. Each includes two unique Nanos with built-in hangouts, such as on a balcony, inside a doorway and special places unique to each house.
I haven’t got the best eyesight and because their worlds are so small there’s a special app that allows me to peek around each house for a glimpse of their colourful world and a taste of what life is like for the Nanos!
It’s a free downloadable app where you can scan your Nanables house, bringing the Nanos’ world to life using augmented reality. The app unlocks exclusive content, with unique activities and games for each house, the more houses you collect, the more activities to enjoy!
There are so many little cute buildings to collect in order to build this miniature world! We love Sweetness Town which includes Dusted Donut Diner, Milk & Cookie Mill and Lolli-pop Stars Dance Studio.
But it doesn’t stop there! Rainbow Way has an amazing array of glittery and colourful locations like Sparkle Day Spa, Rainbow-tique and Twinkle Twinkle Inn. They are so pretty to look at and make great toys and little ornaments!
I couldn’t wait to peek inside using the intergrated viewer and all you need to do is scan the building from the free app on an adults phone… or your tablet and voila! It’s perfect for extra game play and expanding the Nanables world and sharing the fun with friends. (search Nanables in app store on iphone/ipad)
The nice thing about these is that they are small enough to go in my mummy’s handbag for a trip out or for travelling and then I can use the app to help my imagination grow. Because of their compact size and small characters they are suitable for 6 -12 year olds. These would make great stocking fillers or pocket money toys as they are only £4.99 and the app is free!
They are available at all good toy stores like Smyths, Argos, Tesco and online. So what do you think? We think it’s a sweet idea and a great combination of tech and conventional play.
