    squinkies

    While I was christmas shopping for my 5 year old, I found these adorable little figures called squinkies. I got her the Disney Princess collection. The more I look at them, the more I want to collect them. When I looked on their web site i found ones that are cars themed, toy story and other classic characters. Am I crazy for wanting the collect a kids toy? Anybody else collecting these? I guesse ill have to buy 2 sets of each so that my daughter can actually play with them.

    I collect them but not the Disney ones yet. They have vending machines of there animal series at stores in my area so I have a lot of the animal ones.

    You are not crazy for wanting to collect them. It is much more sane than trying to buy a monorail car.

    My DS recently discovered the Toy Story and Cars 2 Squinkie sets (was a big deal because prior all we saw were Squinkies for girls). I'm not wanting to collect them (as it is I took on some limited Vinylmation) but DS has the Cars 2 set and is getting the Cars 2 dispensor as well as a pack of 10 Toy Story ones from Santa this year.

    Wow! I agree about the monorail. They are also alot smaller. My husband may not notice these in our house, but I'm thinking he might notice a monorail it the middle of our living room. lol.

    When an adult buys them they're known as 'collectables' not toys
