Who doesn’t love the vintage Disney characters? Classic Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, and a host of beloved Disney characters get a brand new stylized look in the Pook-a-Looz line created by Disney Consumer Products. They truly are too cute for their own good. Disney and Jakks Pacific recently teamed up to produce a brand new line of Pook-A-Looz. The new line is called Topplers, Walkers, Spinners, and Yappers. The trendy designs will appeal to avid tween collectors, but Pook-a-Looz is still cute enough for kids of all ages! JAKKS’ CDI division launches novelty products based on the stylized look of Pook-a-Looz, including Pook-a-Looz Wobblers, Yip Yappers, Spinners and Walkers – perfect for collecting, displaying and trading!
We recently received a selection of Pook-A-Looz for review.
The Pook-A-Looz Wobblers are similar to another wobbling toy that is weighted in the bottom, and pops back up when pushed over. The Pook-A-Looz Spinner are spinning tops. In order to get the top to spin, you have to pull the arm. The Pook-A-Looz Walkers are the cutest wind up toys ever. The Yip Yappers are fantastic stress relievers on a bad day.
For back-to-school, Pook-a-looz Yappers are on a keychain and feature characters that all school-age kids know and love, from Mickey and Minnie to Buzz Lightyear. They are perfect for collecting and clipping onto your locker, backpacks, wherever! Bring them in for show-and-tell or trade with your friends.
Because the toys contains small pieces that may pose choking hazards, they are age rated 5+. So, I made the kids sit at the table with Brian and I in order to check them out. The kids, including Brian, enjoyed these novel little toys. Sister really liked the Yip Yapper Minnie, and I have to say, it is my favorite as well. Mister liked the Walker Mickey. Brian enjoyed trying to get the Spinner Minnie to actually spin. I tried to get it to spin a few times, as well, and rewarded myself with the stinging snap of the string when I was less than coordinated. The Spinners are definitely not for toddlers!
The Pook-A-Looz are available at WalMart, Toys R Us, and are about $5 each. They will soon be available at Target, as well.
