First there was selfies and now for the social media savvy little ones we have Augmented Reality selfies thanks to the fabulous UK company, Mardles. Each pack contains one mask and with a choice of over 20 there really is something for everyone, butterflies, fairies through to dinosaurs and zombies!
The mask is a one size fits all strip of thick pliable plastic that wraps around the head and face to fasten at the back. I was pleasantly surprised with how comfortable it stayed in place and it fit both myself and my 3 year old so really is a one for all!
You download the Mardles Life app from the app store and follow a few simple instruction to get started then it is just a case of pointing the camera at the mask and voila – the image you end up with is a complete ‘blossoming’ of the mask in question!
Amelia adored the fact that she had flowers floating above her head and butterfly wings at the sides and was a little freaked out that when I lifted her to look in the mirror they were no longer there… “Its Magic Mummy!!”
Priced at just £3.99 per pack these are great pocket money toys but not really something that the girls have played with again once they tried each one. I think for the price it wouldn’t upset me too much if they didn’t play with them again as they have a great novelty factor and will be great to bring out at parties. I can imagine them being a riot after a couple of drinks!
