The Mini Mes love animals, with Minxy longing to be a vet when she is older, so the new My Pocket Pet figures from WOW Toys and the RSPCA are the perfect pocket money pals!
The cute and collectable RSPCA Animal Figure packs are suitable for children over the age of 18 months and created by WOW Toys. There are 6 animals to collect in this series: Pippi the pooch, Socks the cat, Clarissa the cow, Patch the pig, Wiggles the Dalmatian and Jenny the horse.
Every pack contains an animal figure and an activity sheet. The sheet includes activities like colouring in and dot-to-dot which is great for building fine motor skills. There is a cartoon and information on animal welfare teaching the importance of taking care of animals.
The Mini Mes thought these were really sweet, although they are aimed at a slightly younger age group, and they liked the idea of each foil wrapped toy being a surprise until it was opened. They have had fun with the figures in the bath and combined with their other animal and character play sets too.
The RSPCA’s trading manager Cathy Snow said: “Pocket Pets perfectly brings together charming and fun toys that children will love with an easy to understand and appealingly presented message about animal welfare. It will not only encourage awareness but will also help to raise valuable funds that will allow the RSPCA to continue helping to care for animals. We are delighted to be working with WOW Toys in what we are sure will be a long and productive partnership.”
RSPCA MY Pocket Pets will be on sale with an SSP of £1.99 which I think is good value. It makes a nice treat as an alternative to sweets and would go well in toddler party bags. You can purchase your figures from a variety of high street and online outlets including Waterstones, Tesco, WH Smiths, Tesco Direct and Amazon and participating RSPCA outlets. The toys will also be listed in independent toy shops as well as a number of post offices and newsagents.
