If you are looking for information on the new Squinkies Crazy Crane Dispenser then you are in the right place. Today we are going to tell you all about the Crazy Crane and tell you about release dates, prices and where you can buy online. If this is something you want to get your hands on then this page should tell you everything you need to know about this new Squinkies toy.
Squinkies have been around for a few years now. They are made by a company called Blip Toys and they are basically small soft characters that come in little gum balls. There are toys for both boys and girls and Blip Toys are constantly bringing out new characters and new lines of the toy. In recent times we have seen themes such as Minnie Mouse, Spongebob Squarepants, WWE and Marvel characters. As well as the small Squinkies themselves though the company also sell dispensers for the little gum balls, the latest one of the these is the Crazy Crane Dispenser. So let’s have a look at it.
The New Crazy Crane
The New Crazy Crane Squinkies Dispenser
So as we mentioned, there are various dispensers out there already. Some are aimed at boys and some at girls, this one is supposedly for boys but to be honest there is no reason why girls would not also enjoy this one. There has been some confusion regarding release date, at the time of writing this article these had officially been released, they first hit the shops in late January 2012. But it seems they have been a little slow getting into general circulation. There are a few available to buy online if you shop around. The price of these seems to usually be around the $20 mark although you may be able to find a cheaper price if you look to buy online.
So what exactly does the Crazy Crane Dispenser do? Well it is modelled on a basic arcade game, the one where you control a claw to try to grab you a prize. This toy is basically a simplified version of that. You control your little crane and use it to pluck out a gumball, which will then contain a Squinkie, then you drop it down the little shoot. The toy is easy to use and the lid pops off easily so you can add gum balls. Along with the dispenser itself you also get six exclusive Squinkies which are not available with any other packs.
Although this may seem like a pretty simple idea that may get boring quite quickly, you can use your imagination to spice it up a little. Why not fill the gum balls with small treats such as candy. Use the machine as a reward system for your child, when they behave well they can have a go on the machine to win themselves a new toy.

More New Squinkies Toys
Blip Toys seem determined to release as many new toys as possible. They are constantly looking for new ideas and different directions to take new Squinkies in. In 2012 we have already seen a range of WWE sets, SpongeBob SquarePants, Power Rangers and Hot Wheels sets. All these are very popular and no doubt the company will be looking to release more in the near future.
Another exciting release from the company is Squinkies Zinkies. These are about half the size of the original collectables and come in lots of different shapes and characters. These seem to be aimed mainly at girls at the moment but they may well release some targeted at boys. Of course we are also seeing various new dispensers being brought out, as well as the Crazy Crane Dispenser there is also going to be a new Minnie Mouse Dispenser which will no doubt be very popular.
As you can see Squinkies really are great fun little toys and they do seem to be getting ever more popular. This new dispenser is another way to enjoy these toys and we are expecting it to sell very well for Blip Toys. Currently these do seem a little hard to get hold of but as we said, if you shop around online you should be able to find some at a decent price. It is going to be very interesting to see what other new Squinkies we see released in the coming months.
