A couple of months ago Ava and I were invited to a Num Noms event. At the time I had absolutely no idea what on earth a Num Nom was, but of course, Ava did, and she started telling me about these little things that you could stack together and had different smells (60 different ‘flavours’ in fact!) and there was lip balm, and it was all very exciting (to her at least!).
So the ‘Nums’ are little food-based squishy characters, and the ‘Noms’ are either scented stamps, motorized characters, lip glosses or an eraser. So, you basically pick a Num and a Nom and you can mix and match them to create different ‘food’ combos. This explains it a bit better (and more creatively)…
Ava really enjoyed playing with hundreds of Num Noms and the accessories that go with them at the event we went to, and she was very excited to be sent some of her own afterwards. She’s always loved little toys that she can play with – that she can take out with her in her bag or her pocket – so these are perfect for her. I love some of her toys, but these don’t interest me that much (unsurprisingly), but I do think they are fun little toys for them to collect and to keep them entertained.
Ava was sent a couple of the Blind Packs that you can get with either a lipgloss or a stamp inside, and the Freezie Pops Series 2 Starter Pack. As a YouTube addict, A loves any kind of Blind Bags so she loved these and guessing which she would get. She was very happy to get lip glosses as she is obsessed with the idea of makeup at the moment!
She also really loved playing with the motorised ‘Nom’ that comes with the starter park – it kept her well occupied for a while on a train journey, until the noise drove me so crazy that I had to confiscate it! (They’re not that bad, honest – I was just very tired and I didn’t want to annoy other people.)
The new Series 2 Num Noms feature savoury flavours inspired by brunch dishes like Becca Bacon, and pizza flavours including Mozza Rella, as well as more of the sweet flavours, such as freezie pops, cupcakes and ice creams.
There are over 5,000 combinations that you can make with the Num Noms, and you can also get larger accessories to go with them – such as the Lip Gloss Truck Playset, which Ava enjoyed playing with at the event. If she’s still playing with them as much nearer Christmas, then Santa might get her one of the playsets.
