New Squinkies Zinkies Playsets

Around our house, Squinkies are a much-played-with toy. So, when Squinkies offered to let us try their newest toy, Zinkies, we were more than willing to try out these tiny Squinkies counterparts. Zinkies are half the size of Squinkies; about the size of your pinky tip! They come in a huge assortment of colors and animals and have six different play sets. We were fortunate to get three of the six sets currently available to try out . . . the Zinkies Tweetings! Birdhouse, the Zinkies Peek a Boo! Mushrooms set, and the Tiny Tea Party Teacups set.

Each Zinkies set comes with 12 Zinkies, bubbles for each Zinkie, tweezers, a magnifying glass, and the “home” for the Zinkies to live in. Zinkies are just as fun and durable as Squinkies are and actually had an added fine motor building aspect because of their size that we weren’t expecting. From my ten year old down to my five year old and every child in my care in between, they’ve all had a blast with these toys. Of course because of their size, they are not recommended for children under four.

Squinkies Zinkies are available at Toys "R" Us,, and most major toy retailers nationwide and the sets retails for approximately $12.99.  They would make great Easter basket fillers, stocking stuffers, and any day rewards for good behavior.

Thank you to Squinkies for providing a complimentary product sample for us to base this review upon.
