Surprizamal Cuties

Two weekends ago Elin was coming down with a bad virus and not feeling well at all. Before she started to get a fever and was bedridden, I was trying to cheer her up and I had the perfect thing up my sleeve. She loves surprise toys and I had just got my hands on the new tiny surprizamal cuties. This is the first series of the miniature variety and I knew Elin was going to be ecstatic when she saw them!


These little balls of fun did not disappoint. Elin was eager to start tearing into them to see what her surprises were.




She is all about cats these days so when her first surpizaball was a little a little cat named Jinx she thrilled. The little tag gave a brief description of new little furry friend as well as well as her birthday (April 12) and her favorite color (purple).


Each little surprizaball also came with a collector’s guide.



She eagerly opened all of her surprises and it was so good to see her smile and get excited when she wasn’t feeling well. These little guys stayed by her side all weekend long and she has been playing with them often ever since.


Here’s the lineup of our cute new friends. These are launching in stores this Fall 2016. Let us know if you get the mystery ultra rare surprizamal! Elin’s bet is that it’s a Chihuahua—wonder why she thinks that!?


Do you want to build a snowman–in July?

Elin and I tried a new a modeling clay called Floof and it’s amazing!

Elin is a huge fan of playing with play dough and clay, so I knew she would love playing with this new feather-light substance called Floof. It’s smooth and airy light and feels like you playing with marshmallows without being sticky at all. You have to feel it to believe it!

This is one of those toys that is actually fun for me to play with her. She always loves me to play with her and I love that this keeps our hands busy and we can create virtually anything and have a million different ways we can play with it.


We used the snowball maker set. It came with six different molds in three different sizes. Elin liked using them to make snowmen rather than snowballs per se, so I know she would have loved the little set that actually includes all the little accessories to create a snowman–right down the carrot nose and little scarf.





Elin loved pretending that it was snow. As someone who is always looking for fun ideas for kids parties, this would be so adorable to play with at a Frozen birthday party!



I love that it comes in its own bucket for storage. Everything must have a home in the toy closet!


Another one of my favorite features of this innovative compound is that it’s less messy than some other popular clays out there. It stays together better and doesn’t leave little balls of clay all over the place. It stayed better clumped together. Definitely a win in my book.

We have truly loved playing with Floof and recommend it to any kids over the age of 3. This product was sent to me in exchange for my honest review.
