Babies First Spider-man
If you've got a newborn son or daughter the TY's new Spider-man Beanie Ballz might just be the perfect way to introduce them to superheros. Beanie Ballz are an all ages toy but I think they are best suited for babies and toddlers. Something the big bright eyes or the shape seems to just captivates children.
The Spider-man Beanie Ball itself is actually incredibly simple. The top 3/4 are filled with the regular stuffing, which makes it soft and cuddly. Kinda like a round pillow. It's very comfy. The bottom 1/4 is full of "beans". The same kind you find in all TY and Beanie Babies toys. The beans give it an anchor so no matter which way you drop it (or throw it) it will always land on it's bottom. This seems to amaze children. The younger the better. They don't call him the Amazing Spider-man for nothing I guess.
The outside materials are a pretty good quality. Buying TY you kind of know what to expect and Marvel doesn't license anything without making sure it's done right. The two big companies don't disappoint. The Spider-man Beanie Ball has these really cool silver reflective eyes (Pics Below). In fact all the Marvel Beanie Ballz have their own little thing. With the Hulk it's his tuft of crazy green hair. It makes each one unique. They aren't just color swaps. The creators obviously thought about the source material while making them.
The beanie ballz come in 3 different sizes.
- Small-about the size of a tennis ball
- Medium-about the size of grapefruit
- Large-about the size of a volleball
Personally I like the large because it doubles as pillow and can be used for support for crawlers.
The big yellow "Buy Now" button is for large version but clicking through will give you more options.
The Spider-man Beanie Ball are probably most appreciated by babies but they've also become a hot collectible for adult Spider-man fans as well. So you're a mother reading this looking for a Christmas or birthday present for you baby, you just might want to buy one for Dad as well.
This is the kind of toy your child will grow up with. They'll enjoy it through all the childhood stages and look back on it fondly later. If you are comic book fan or the spouse of comic book fan this is a great way to start bonding over that right from the begining.
The Incredible Hulk Beanie Ball kinda looks like a hamster with Gamma rays.
The Iron Man Beanie ball is pretty awesome in my opinion.
