whimzy pets

Updated on August 10, 2010

Whimzy Pets As Seen On TV

So I thought that squinkies were 100% going to be the back to school trend product of the year until I saw one that has some potential to compete with Squinkies.  Whimzy Pets are tiny little stuffed animals that have their front paws held together or hold together so that you can not only let them hug your finger, but you can use them in your hair for decoration or attach them anywhere they can hold on to. The reason I think that Whimzy Pets are able to compete with the popular squinkies isn't just that there are a ton of whimzey pets you can choose from, but whimzey pets sort of remind me of Beanie Babies. 

Beanie Babies took over the world for the longest time and every once in a while I come across a store that is still selling them.  When you combine the addictive power of the beanie baby with the cute hugging and collectible animal shapes of the whimzy pets, you may have a winner, especially of some of the cool kids end up buying them. 

Whimzy pets come in a ton of animal shapes.  You can buy pinky the bunny, sunshine the turtle, amos the horse, coconuts the monkey, chill (I'm not sure what chill is), whisper the unicorn, slim the pig and goldie the dog whimzey pet.  Not only are all of these whimzey pets addorable and fun to collect, but your kids will love getting to show off their very own whimzy pet at school to all of their friends.  These trend products are sort of like BMWs or Rolex watches to kids. 

Whimzy pets and other trendy toys mean status in a school.  If you have the popular version you feel like you fit in and if you are the only kid without a whimzy pet or the current trendy toy then you feel left out and certain groups may reject you.  Although when we grow up many of us realize how stupid it really is, to your kids and to some adults it really does feel like the end of the world to be the only one without one.  What I like about whimzy pets is that they are a trendy toy that you can buy for your kids that is not only affordable but is also actually kind of cute. 

Whimzy pets are small little stuffed animal styled toys so you have to remember that there are age restrictions on them for little kids.  Please read the package closely and only get your kids whimzy pets if they are old enough to play with small toys.  Whimzey pets are cool collectible toys and if you kid asks for them, don't forget to ask them which whimzy pet they want so you don't end up with the wrong animal.  I personally think they are a cute trend toy but not one that I would have wanted.  However with squinkies being one of the biggest growing trend toys and whimzy pets being almost as fun, whimzy pets may soon take over the back to school toy craze.  If you have a whimzy pet and want to share it, please feel free to leave a comment below.

      Hi Amanda, Amazon seems extremely competitive but other places you may want to try would be toy stores, eBay or maybe Walmart.

      Nice report, but the whimzy pets sold at Amazon are SO EXPENSIVE D: Is there any other place where they sell cheaper?
