Foodie Roos - Review

[AD/Gifted - We received these items for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.]

The amount of collectible toys that C and E have between them must be in the hundreds. They love trying to collect the entire range of whatever toy it is and it's very exciting when you get a full set.




Foodie Roos from John Adams have gone one further and created mini collectible plush toys! The kids really love plush toys and have an abundance in their beds that they couldn't bare to part with - even the scruffy ones they've had since birth! 

One day in Yummyville, these animals were enjoying their favourite foods and ate a bit too much. They then turned into their favourite food and became a Foodie Roo!




Each Foodie Roo comes in a little pot and on the front you'll see a peekaboo rectangle as a sneak peek into who will be inside. You'll also see either Popcorn, Gummies, Chips, Cookies, Fruit Cup, Soda, Pretzel, Juice or Cereal. Each of these categories have two different Foodie Roos to collect plus you could be lucky enough to find one of two rare treats, so there are 20 available in Series 1. 





E couldn't wait to get opening and see who was inside each pot. We started off with our Gummies one and found Bouncy Bear inside. You also get a sheet of stickers, a collector's guide, two connectors and an instruction manual. The instruction manual shows how to turn the pot into a little room for your Foodie Roo. The stickers can then be used to decorate it. I really like this concept as it means there is minimal single use plastic and you have an instant playset.





The smell of the Foodie Roos are really quite strong but E absolutely loved this about this. We opened a few others afterwards; Citrustripes from the Soda collection, Berry Hop from Fruit Cup, Whale-Ale from Juice and Pretzquirrel from Pretzel. Each of them are very different, not only by smell but texture and weight too. We instantly felt as though Citrustripes and Whale-Ale were very heavy in comparison to the others, obviously as a drink would be heavy in a glass or cup. You can also hear the sloosh if you shake them. If you give them a squeeze, the textures are reminiscent of their food.



We have some very exciting news. When we opened the last pot, we were greeted with a foil sheet over the top that said "Winner winner! Rare treat inside!" E actually squealed at the top of her lungs and ran to tell her daddy that she'd got a rare one. It was adorable. There are two rare Foodie Roos to find; Raccoon Macaron and Sugarphant, we got Sugarphant and E was very adamant that it smells like frosting.




Now, all of the Foodie Roos currently live in E's bed as she can "smell them whenever she wants when she's going to sleep".



The Foodie Roos from John Adams are priced at £7.99 each and are available from Smyths and all good toy retailers. I know E will definitely be wanting some more of these and I think they'd be great for stocking fillers or a little gift for all those schoolfriends' birthday parties!
