Dear Mummy, a new collectible toy is here. You know how much I love surprise toys. But this one has a twist as it incorporates crafting into the toy unboxing! Ravel Tales Series 1 from Character Options is rolling into stores now. It’s like the fun of pass the parcel for older children and it lets you unwind each layer to uncover nine fun surprises inside.
It’s the gift that keeps on giving, as the more you unwind, the more you find. Ravel Tales takes the unboxing experience and surprise reveal to the next level! I like that there is hardly any packaging waste apart from the cardboard box it comes in and everything can be repurposed.
There are crafting activities, sticker sheets, charms, accessories and lots of wool throughout the unraveling reveal. We’ve never seen anything like it!

It looks just like my Grandma’s ball of wool in her knitting basket! However all is not what it seems. At the end of the ball of yarn, [Spoiler Alert] you will reveal a surprise Ravel Tales plush character, but ssshhh don’t spoil the surprise 😉
There are 12 collectible plush pals to unravel and reveal — plus the extra excitement of possibly finding the rare Raveller! There’s so many cute characters to find – Knittens, Button Bears, Purl Ponies and Pom Pom Pups too! Will you uncover a Rare Raveller? Look for Banjo and Piccolo, each with gold and sparkle details. Each sold separately.
[Spoiler Alert] When you get to the end of the unraveling process, you’ll also discover a blanket with the plush pal inside. The blanket can be stuffed and stitched with the included colourful string and wool to make a cute little bed for my new surprise friend! I was lucky enough to find a Unicorn and a Puppy in my wool ball.
Ravel Tales are designed for kids ages 5 and up. The best part of Ravel Tales is that the wool and string you unravel can be repurposed into headbands, braided bracelets, and more. My mummy quite likes this for herself. You can use the included charms to add a little dazzle to friendship bracelets or necklaces too.
Ravel Tales make a perfect birthday party gift or stocking filler and once opened a new buddy to cuddle with! It kept me occupied for ages and would be a great gift over the school holidays.
The wool and string is great for my craft drawer too and even though I was desperate to see who was hidden inside the ball of yarn I loved doing the crafting challenge afterwards!
Ravel Tales is a super fun, new addition to the mystery reveal trend in 2020. You can find them at Argos, Smyths and on Amazon now! My Ravel Tales comes with me now wherever I go (I made a little lead for my puppy). We don’t know the price yet but hopefully they will be under the £10 mark as this would make it easier to collect with my pocket money as I can’t wait to collect more.
