I have written in the past about how much my girls love pocket money toys and grab bags or blind bags as they are called. We have already purchased a few of the Hatchimals eggs where you rub the heart on the front and uncover what mini animal you will receive. Hatchimals have now brought out the Pixies and we received the Vacay Style of which there are 5 to collect, inspired by places they have visited in the world. Wishing Willow, Lilac Lacey, Sunshine Sara, Meadow Maddie and Glittering Gracie.
1 in 10 of the suitcases has a little bonus stowaway too, we didn’t receive one in ours but this adds to the excitement of what you might find.
The little suitcase contains the pixie and we received Glittering Gracie from Tokyo. She comes complete with 2 smaller suitcases which open the same way as the original Hatchimals eggs, gently warm the heart to crack open. Inside were her accessories, handbag, selfie stick and headband.
Each pack comes complete with a sheet to mark off which ones you collect. Priced at £8.99 and available from all good toy retailers including Amazon and Smyths.
Another great toy the girls love are the Candylocks toys from Spinmaster. Candylocks are cute pixie style characters and their pets with super long, scented cotton candy hair! We received Posie Peach in one of the larger sets with her pet and also a smaller grab/blind bag.
There are over 20 different varieties and each comes in a collectible fruit container. They have a hair brush and smell delicious, we were delighted to find that the scent stays for a long time too, all too often these toys lose their smell straight away. The larger packs come complete with 2 accessories, brush and hair clip, ours came with a little peach charm which would be super cute in a childs hair.
We found the hair was more little fluff so a little difficult to brush properly but great for styling. Plaits held in the hair really well and with the hair being almost 40cm there was more than enough to style and design. Standing at 7.5cm tall, each doll retails at £12.99 and are available from all good toy stores.
For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
