Review and giveaway: Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters

My son has a new favorite toy and he would play with it every single waking moment of the day if I let him. This toy (or rather toys) is a set of Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters. Here's a bit about these cool new little toys, from the Bobble Bots website:


From the creators of HEXBUG® Micro Robotic Creatures comes an all-new buzzing, explorative, and collectible line of toys with customizable playsets. Set to launch spring 2012, Innovation First International teamed up with Mind Candy - the entertainment firm behind the globally successful Moshi Monsters brand - for the debut range of Bobble BotsTM Moshi Monsters.
This new brand of innovative robotic pets and playsets fuses some of what fans love most about HEXBUG - high-tech vibration technology, collectable pieces, and open-ended creative building play - with the hugely popular virtual Moshling characters and buildings, in a way that brings Monstro City to life for millions of fans worldwide.
The initial assortment of Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters products available at launch will include 24 battery operated collectible Moshlings and a variety of configurable 3-D "dollhouse" replicas of the streets, yards, buildings and houses found online in Monstro City. Every Bobble BotsTM Moshi Monsters product will include secret codes to unlock new content in the online world at www.moshimonsters.com.
We received one starter set with a Bobble Bots Moshi Monster (Squidge),  Moshling Rocky, and the Bizarre Bazaar Store Playset with Moshling ShiShi.


I thought the store playset and the starter playset were easy to link together, and I liked that the kids and I could rearrange things like the plants and even where the playsets were in relation to each other. This keeps it fresh and fun every time we play with it.  After placing everything to our satisfaction, it was time to turn on the Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters and let them run around.



My almost-3-year-old daughter, Vivian, thinks the Bobble Bots are fun and enjoys playing with them for a while, but my son is obsessed. The first thing he says in the morning is "can I play with monster playset?"  It's the first thing he asks for when he gets home from school and I have to store it out of his reach to keep him from playing with it constantly.  So I think that's definitely a vote of approval from Ethan!  Personally, I get driven a little nuts by the buzzing sound that the toys give off. It's fairly loud for such little toys. I should note though that I am hypersensitive to noises and the noise doesn't seem to bother my husband at all. 

This is a fun little playset that you can add other Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters and playsets too, so it can grow as large as you want! Check out the Bobble Bots website for more information!

And I have good news! One of you will win a Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters starter set! This contains Includes one Bobble Bots Moshi Monster, one square cobblestone building tile, four brick borders, three grass pieces, one small bush, one mushroom and one rock.  Open to US mailing addresses only, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below. 

a Rafflecopter giveaway Disclosure: I received these toys and the opportunity to give a starter set away, thanks to BSM Media and Bobble Bots. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
