As soon as I saw this furry little critter appear, I knew that my son would LOVE him, and I wasn’t wrong!
The idea behind the Smasha-Ball is that the more you punch it, kick it or chuck it around the more gross and funny sounds you get to hear. There are three Smasha-Ballz to collect – Marzian, Gooba and the one we’ve got, Ninjaaah. Ninjaah makes kung-fu sounds and shakes with laughter and there’s really only one way I can demonstrate this. (Ok, it’s hard to film it and press it yourself – the kids had gone to bed at the point I decided to make a video!)[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruhbYSdo6jI]
As you can see, he sounds like a Ninja.
It doesn’t really do any more than that but it doesn’t have to. It’s practically the perfect present for my 5 year old boy (and maybe my 40 year old husband too). He can beat it up as much as it likes and in return it offers him gross noises! He was really taken by Ninjaaah and I think it will be played with for a long time to come!
Each Smasha-Ballz figure requires 3 x AAA batteries, which are included and is suitable for ages 3 years and over.
The Smasha-Ballz have a RRP of £19.99 and will be available at Toys R Us shortly.
