We were recently sent some Zomlings to review. These collectible mini figures are a new toy line from Magic Box. These are brand new and should start appearing in shops very soon - look out for them in your local supermarkets and toy stores.
They are small 2cm squidgy pocket money figures which children can collect, swop and play with - similar to the likes of TrashPacks, Moshi monsters and other such series.
In the Zomling series 1 range there are over 100 characters to collect, all zombie themed but lots of different characters from teddy bears to elephants.
The blind bags and houses come with a checklist and instructions on of how to play with the zomlings, giving you three ideas for games such as Zomling Battle where you set up your house across the table from your apponants house, then flick your zomling figures towards the enemys house, the first to hit the house twice wins. Another game is Towers Down, where you set up tower blocks and try to knock them down by flicking your zomling figures at the blocks.
These colourful characters are really quite cute and instantly appeal to children, my three all loved them and can't wait to see them in the local shops to buy some more, priced at affordable pocket money prices I can see these becoming very popular.
The collection includeds several rare colour options - some characters come in 2 colour variety, the neon version being harder to find than the 'ordinary colours' Then there are 6 ultra rare silver characters to collect and 3 Limited edition Gold Zomlings.
We were lucky enough to find Smash one of the ultra rare silver zomlings in one of our blind bags which pleased my three no end.
Overall we love the zomlings and will be keeping our eyes open for them in our local stores, with the popular zombie theme yet cute nature of these critters, affordable prices and perfect size for carrying around in your pocket or pencil case I think children everywhere will have lots of fun with them
