Introducing Num Noms!

Today I’m excited to be sharing with you all about Num Noms, as they launch here in the UK, after causing a sensation over in the US.

Num Noms

Num Noms are scented food related collectibles which appear in the form of mini lip glosses and motorised characters.

Take a Num, the outer, soft, squishy, hollow characters, and nestle it on top of a Nom, the inner, hard-shelled characters that are either motorised to scoot around, or filled with flavoured lip gloss. Pile them high for wacky combos or race them against each other with friends.

With over 1,000 mix and match combinations, such as Raspberry Cream,Banana Go-Go or Peachy Choco Gloss, go crazy and collect them all! Collect by flavour, scent, colour, type – the combinations are endless.

Over on the website you’ll be able to find out more, along with a printable check-list of the Num Noms you have and those that you still want along with colouring sheets, activities and a Recipe Maker. Plenty to do!

Here’s more about them from my girl, who’ll show you them in action….

Parents Verdict

First impressions are good in that the Num Noms come easily out of their packaging, without fiddly straps or being individually attached. The ‘Nom’ is motorized and comes with a battery included so it is ready to play with immediately. Two huge ticks straight away from me, as these two things are so often my bug bears with new toys.

They appear to be well made, the rubber of the ‘Nums’ being strong and flexible and the ‘Nom’ has already buzzed off many a table and worktop and has come through unscathed.

Num Noms are undoubtedly cute. They are quirky, and they do smell nice, each one with a very individual and discernible scent. They are appealing and I like them.

The problem for me with these is that once opened, sniffed and ‘ooohed’ over, I could see no more playability with them. Well, that’s where it’s clear that I’m just an old parent and know nothing at all about these things, as the kids think…..

Children’s Verdict

These are unlike anything that Boo has, and as such she’s been utterly fascinated by them and as has Little Man. They are so very cute to look at and play with, and she’s carried them around with her everywhere since getting them last week.

It seems that you can easily play with them, and play with them a lot. The kids play shops with them, they play at eating them, they play whilst chatting away to them, they get the characters interacting with one another, they stack the Nums on the Nom in different combinations, they watch the Nom motoring all over the place. Seriously, I honestly did not anticipate how much they would, or even could, play with these, but they are most definitely a hit here.

Boo also studies the collectibles sheet that comes with them, a whole range of Num Noms that she has yet to own. That sheet could be very costly to me!!
