If you’ve noticed around here, we love building in new, creative ways. It’s fun for the kids to get the imagination working and a wonderful way to build self-confidence in their abilities when they get to see their finished creation. Lately, we’ve been having a blast building with the NEW Bunchems Alive!
Awarded the 2016 Toy of the Year Award for Activities, Bunchems are colorful little balls that stick to each other and build like no other. The possibilities of what you can create are limitless, since they stick and stay, then pull apart easily for reimagined creations. And, the motorized Stick’em Ball even brings your creation to life! Put it down and watch it go! As a mom, I like that clean up is a breeze, too, because they stick to each other.
First, though, before creating with Bunchems, make sure hair is pulled back away from your child’s face. Also, for the best Bunchems experience, be sure to play on hard surfaces like a table to avoid entanglement on any fibrous surfaces, such as carpets. You can find more tips to get the most out of Bunchems here.
We were sent the Bunchems Alive pack, along with the Bunchems Mega-Pack, to test out and see what fun creations we could come up with. And create we did! Abby had so much fun squishing and connecting to build her friendly little creatures. She took right to it, declaring it the best toy ever while first constructing what she called her “Rainbow Pet”. “Rainbow Pet” consisted of every color of Bunchems available connected on the Stick’em Ball in a very colorful non-pattern pattern.
Next, she made her purple “Princess”, as she was named. A combination of both the Bunchems Alive set and the Megapack. Because along with enough Bunchems to make multiple creatures in a variety of colors, these sets also comes with fun accessories like googly eyes, a moustache, ears, tongue, wings, and tails so you can fully bring your Bunchems Alive characters to life! There was even a crown for “Princess” in the Megapack.
She’s been having a lot of fun building with her Bunchems and loves how easy they are to put together and then rearrange into something new.
The Stick’em Ball is really fun, too, to watch wobble and wiggle. It’s such an open-ended set and really allows her creativity to shine!
How would you like to win Bunchems Alive and Bunchems Megapack ($64.98 ARV)? It would make such a wonderful gift for the upcoming holidays!
