Crate Creatures Surprise - Review

Now, how exciting does this toy look? What's in the crate? The clue is in the name, Crate Creatures! I was delighted when the opportunity came to work with Crate Creatures because Noah had already told me all about them, and had even requested one for his birthday! The opportunity came just at the right time too, as he'd just finished nursery for good and it was the perfect surprise to cheer him up!

"Four ferocious new friends are only an unbox away! With a grizzly exterior of ferocious fuzz, squirting snot, glowing eyes and growling noises, they’re big softies really. Crate Creatures Surprise are itching to meet you. If only you could help them escape…"

Fun with Crate Creatures begins straight away because the crate itself is an element of play! The crate isn't just a piece of packaging that you throw away after you've opened it, it can be reused and played with time and time again. Attached to the crate is a plastic crowbar, which is the perfect tool to help your little one break the lock and prise it open!

Once the crate has been opened, the Crate Creature isnide pops right out! There are 4 different Crate Creatures to collect; Blizz, Pudge, Sizzle and Snorthog, each with their own look, personality, phrases and favourite food! I decided to choose Pudge because I had an inkling that Noah would like him the most and thankfully, I was right! Mum points right there!

Pudge is a funky, multicoloured creature which you can’t help but smile and giggle at. He's so eye-catching, the kids can't help but want to play with him. Pudge also interacts in many different ways, making him very engaging and fun to explore. 

You see that huge tongue? Pull it to hear lots of funny noises, but if you pull it too hard it will make him angry and he will shake in rage! Then press his horns to make his eye’s light up, change colour and roll back into their sockets. If you are feeling brave, knock him over or turn him upside down he will react with wild roars! When he's feeling hangry, feed him and you'll hear him gobble and munch.

The fun doesn’t end there though, you can even record your voice by pressing Pudge’s belly which he then replays in his funny creature voice! Don't worry if Pudge gets a little too much to handle you can simply lock him back up in his crate and release when you are ready for round two.

Noah adores his Crate Creature and hasn’t stopped playing with him since he arrived last week. He’s always laughing at the different things that he says and likes to put him back into his crate for bedtime! He's now asking for a "brother" for him and says that he wants to collect them all! The only question is, which shall we get next? I'm thinking Sizzle!
