The Num Noms have arrived in the UK! What are Num Noms, you ask? They are a range of delightful, scented, food-related collectible toys that are all the rage Stateside and have now crossed the pond.
You have ice-cream and cupcake Nums. Team them up with either a motorised or a lipgloss Nom. Scoop them up into a cup or a cone and you have your own recipe for fun.
We were sent a selection of these super-cute little characters to review. Our ice-cream starter pack had all the ingredients for the perfect banana split ice-cream. We got 1 motorised Nom, 3 Nums, an ice-cream cone and a spoon.
Our Nom is called Strawberry Go-Go and smells of, well, strawberries. Our Nums are Minty Chip, Choco Cream and Billy Banana and smell of mint, chocolate and bananas respectively. The cone and the Nom is hard plastic, while the Noms are soft, squishy plastic. You can squash and mould them to fit on top of each other to create an ice-cream sundae.
The motorised Nom is rather cute. It has a mind of its own and once set up, wanders around, carrying all the Nums and cone with it.
We have had tons of fun playing with our set. J has always liked to pretend he owns an ice-cream shop, and this lot now add a little extra to his imaginative play. So far, I have had to eat a strawberry ice-cream that hobbles around and sundaes involving all sorts of combinations.
To celebrate the launch of the Num Noms in the UK, we are giving away the following prizes:
1 winner to get a Deluxe Pack that includes 6 Nums, 2 motorized Noms, 1 spoon, 1 cupcake liner, and 1 collector's menu.
1 winner to get 2 Mystery Packs, each of which includes 1 Num, 1 lip gloss Nom, and 1 collector's menu.
