Review: Surprizamals

(Disclaimer: At no point did I or will I receive any monetary gift for my review. The views expressed are simply mine.)

Over two weeks ago, my blogging partner & current boyfriend Steve (ccf) told me tgat he had been asked to write a review for something called surprizamals. We made part of our date this past Saturday, August 26, 2017, a time for us to share in opening these.

Packaging

I loved the large smooth plastic balls and clear printed labels for the surprizamals.  The clear labels, though slightly perforated,  proved to be difficult to remove on some. 

The Contents

Each ball contains one small plush animals, each baring a tag with their name and information both in English and in French. 

Out of the six mystery balls that Steve and I opened, we had 3 Yetis, a black bear, a  blue koala, and a magenta unicorn. 


Each of the characters were well manufactured,  though I must warn that I would NOT recommend these for small children due to possible choking hazards. 

What I liked

I liked the bright packaging, and the adorable factor of the creatures the creatures themselves. I also like that each character had a name and unique personality. Bonus points to whomever designed their sparkly eyes. 

What I would change

Now mind you, my review of these was never solicited. But here are the things I would change:

  1. Make the clear packaging more perforated for easy opening. 
  2. Give some animals a clip to attach to backpacks, or belt loops. Honestly, if one if the yetis had a clip, one would already be hanging from my purse. 
  3. Encourage ideas on how to repurpose the red ball containers. We live so much in a throw away world. Maybe have ideas online on how to repurpose or recycle the containers. 
  4. More variety. Okay. So what are the odds of 50% of the balls we opened being yetis, when the yeti is supposedly one of the more rare characters?? Perhaps offer more colors of a a particular animal or even special edition colors (a silver yeti, anyone?)
  5. Pricing. Though the ones Steve shared were sent to him for free, these little guys are priced at a hefty $4.95. There are certainly not in a range where I’m going to be able to afford going to buy very many. Cost is certainly a concern. 

Overall

Over all, I enjoyed the Surprizamals and would recommend these to other parents or even other animal lovers/plushy lovers like myself.
