The postman has delivered a big box. Of course I am curious about the content and once I have torn off the gray cardboard, I hold a colorful playset in my hands. The new Snackables Silly Shakes Maker Playset from Num Noms. That does not only look happy, but it also sounds rainy.
With the Num Noms Snackables Silly Shakes Maker you can brew the 'tastiest' glitter shakes and most exciting drinks. You can choose from the flavors strawberry and berries and with that beautiful glitter topping your shake becomes very bling bling. With the mixer you can mix it up and inside no time is your shake ready! Cheers! Oh no, it is not of course not meant to really drink the brew!
In the box
A mini kitchen, collectable mini-snack cups, jelly-slime jar, scents, glitters and 1 Num Nom. It all looks super cute and so I'm starting to like it. Before you begin it is important that you put something over the table to protect it. I will explain to you soon why I am expressly aware of this.
And then get started!
You start with some mucus in the mixing bowl. Then add some color and possibly some glitter. Place the mixing bowl under the mixer and turn it! Maybe the jar of mucus in my package was not completely sealed, because the mucus in my package is a bit thick, making it difficult to mix.
In the end I choose to knead it with my hands. With the red dye, this is quite fine, but if I choose the blue dye later on, I immediately regret that I have used my fingers. My fingers turn blue, I change into a smurf and it stays that way. No matter how hard I scrub my hands, I do not really get them clean. Of course it does wear out in the days after that, but it is annoying, of course. And let's be honest, if it is so difficult from my hands, what does it do with your clothes? Your walls? Your table? And that is why I said that you really have to cover your table before you get started ...
Of course, this kitchen appeals to the imagination of children. It is also really nice to make your own shakes. Personally, I am sorry that you can not really drink the shakes in the end. That, of course, had made something just that. Anyway, playing with mucus remains fun for the children, because mucus is still completely hot.
What I find really annoying is the stubborn dye. Children may not find these blue hands a problem, but as a parent you are not really waiting for this. Be especially careful with your furniture.
All in all, unfortunately I am moderately enthusiastic. The details are beautiful and it all looks super cute, but because the mucus was a bit thick, it did not work optimally, so the mixing did not go well. I also wonder if this is going to be played a lot. The amount of blank mucus supplied is not that much, so you can quickly get through. And what will happen to this package? I see this package - how regrettable that is - somewhere in the back of the closet and then it is a lot of money.
My conclusion: it all looks super cute, mucus stays fun for the kids, just like the cuteness of Num Noms, but unfortunately I can not really get excited about it. The base adhesive is too little (and in our case also too thick), the dye too stubborn and it offers in the longer term too little challenge to justify the costs.
Too bad ... because this playset had just so much potential.
