Twisty Petz Collectable Toys - Review

(We received these items for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.)

E was very excited to be sent some Twisty Petz collectable toys recently and upon opening I instantly felt like they were just made for E. If you aren't familar with Twisty Petz, they are little animals made from beads or gems that transform into jewellery. E is an animal lover and a total girly girl who loves her make up, dresses and jewellery.

We received a three-pack Twisty Petz set, two single-pack Twisty Petz sets and a four-pack of Twisty Petz Babies. 

There are 70 different pets to collect from cats and ponies to llamas and unicorns so E couldn't wait to see which ones she'd got. As well as having a multitude of animals to collect, they come in lots of different colours and finishes - metallic, pastel, rainbow and pearlescent - so you can be as creative as you want when you are joining them together. Like any collectable toy, you can get Limited Edition ones which is always a treat - E got a Chi-Chi Cheetah and it was as if all her Christmases had come at once!

To play, you simply pull the head and tail of the animal and it straightens out. The end of the tail can be inserted into a hole on the head then worn as a bracelet. If you have more than one pet, you can connect them together to make longer necklaces or you can think further outside the box and even make a little fashion accessory to hang on your backpack. To put them back to animal form, you simply insert the round bead into the main 'body' gem and twist the legs around. This took a little bit of practice for E at the start and she would ask me to do it a lot but it's pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

The single-packs are self-explantory, you get one pet but the three-packs are quite exciting as you can openly see two of the pets but a third one is hidden as a surprise. The Twisty Petz Babies are just smaller versions of the bigger Petz and E likes to make little families when she is playing with them as the animals. The Babies set also comes with a little gem shaped case and extra charm - a lovely addition!

I do worry a bit when it comes to things with beads because, at only four, E can be quite rough and I have to warn her that they could snap and we'd have beads everywhere! Twisty Petz are very sturdy so we didn't have an issue with this at all.

I really like that they are toys that are small enough to be taken to a restaurant or into nursery but have a dual purpose so the excitement isn't lost and E can play with them in a few different ways.

The Twisty Petz packs are priced at £4.99 for a single pack, £9.99 for the Babies four pack and £14.99 for the three pack so there is something for all budgets. You can find these at Smyths and all other major toy retailers.
