I have to say that toys have come a long way since I was a child. Back in the day, toys were simpler. There were not too many “bells and whistles.” That was fine with me because back then, we didn’t know anything different. Fast forward to today, and kids these days have a plethora of unique toys available to them – toys I would never dream of in a million years.
I want to give credit to a lot of toys designers for creating toys that are truly unique. Take for example the creators of the toy, Pea Pod Babies.
Pea Pod Babies are tiny baby dolls that are “born” through a pea found inside a pea pod.
I know, that sounds peculiar. Maybe this brief video will give you a better idea of what Pea Pod Babies are all about.
I have to laugh when I watch that video. Who would have thought of creating a toy that involves a pea pod. LOL!
ThinAir Brands sent me some Pea Pod Babies to check out for myself.
Pea Pod Babies comes in a pea pod. It has a leathery feel to it (for lack of a better description). Inside each pod are three peas. One pea (the first one) contains a baby. The other pods contain accessories and clothing for your new baby.
All Pea Pod baby clothing and accessories work with other Pea Pod Babies.
The pod is wrapped on one end with tape. That is where the opening is and where you can squeeze out the peas.
The peas open up pretty easily. You just need to pop them open. They can be repurposed/reused to keep the babies, clothing and accessories in when not in use.
The babies are adorable. They come out of the peas with their heads a bit misshapen, but that is easy enough to remedy. Just squeeze them a few times and/or hold them so their heads are not flat, and eventually the heads will look fine. I guess that is something that cannot be avoided when they are stored inside the peas.
Each baby comes with an outfit and accessories such as a bottle and toys.
These toys are not made for little kids that still put things in their mouths. The accessories and clothing are teeny, tiny. Even I had a hard time putting on the baby’s booties because they were too tiny for my chubby, stubby fingers.
Pea Pod Babies comes with a lot of accessories and clothing, which I was surprised by.
The babies themselves are adorable.
Each baby comes with a notecard that tells you the baby’s name and something about the baby. Of course, you can name the baby/babies whatever you want.
There are many different babies in the Pea Pod Babies collection. You can use the included collectors card to mark off the ones that you have collected thus far.
Overall, I think this is a fun idea. It’s novelty is sure to be a bit hit with children.
I think the Pea Pod Babies are really cute. The accessories are too tiny for my taste, but that is just me. I just worry about little ones putting them in their mouth.
Their accessories could work with other toys too (I was thinking they would be fun with Barbie sized dolls, or LOL dolls).
