Smashers Collectables Review & Giveaway

By In The Playroom

My boys are all very active and love sports, especially football (2 Arsenal supporters and one Man City supporter!) and they also tend to love little collectable pocket money toys, so when I heard about the new sports themed collectables from Zuru, I was sure they would be interested!

Smashers are fun little characters, each with a sports theme and to find out which character you have inside you have to smash the balls that they come in.

These are some of the smashers that my boys have collected so far…

…and we were also sent the Smash bus which stores up to 50 smashers characters, and comes with two rare exclusives, which they were very happy to add to their collection.

The bus is a great addition as it helps keep them all nice and tidy, and it opens out into a sports pitch with goals to shoot the characters into

With these type of collectables, I find my kids love the anticipation of finding out which one is inside, and then they love the swapping and trading amongst each other. Smashing the balls open first adds an extra element of fun to this, which is quite different to other types of collectables that are normally in blind bags, and it links in with the sports theme really nicely.

Smashers will suit kids from around age 4-10 (my boys are 6, 8 and 9) and there are over 100 to collect! They are available from retailers including Argos, and The Entertainer

To find out more, follow Smashers World or Zuru Toys on Facebook.

  1. The bus is a great idea to keep the Smashers in, should hopefully save finding them all over the house! My stepdaughter is mad on horse riding!

  2. I’ve never heard of these but I’m sure my boys would love them. They love football & contact sports. I’m exhausted with my active boys

  3. My daughter would love to give these a go! She’s mostly into playing football at the mo, but is young enough that she’s not yet tried many sports xx

  4. Our girls love playing football and tennis (not that I would say their swinging isn’t detrimental to my greenhouse). They love anything they can collect and for me that’s great as it allows me to offer them rewards (bribes) for good behaviour.

  5. my so loves rugby 🙂 hes only 9 so to see him passionate about it is lovely.he would love these as he likes collectibles.they look like a lot of fun

  6. I hadn’t heard of them before reading your blog. I think they are super and I know that my grandchildren would love them as they love collecting things and playing with cars etc.

  7. My children are into all sports. Whenever a new school club is announced , they are first in the queue. They will try everything

  8. Smashers is a product / brand which is new to me. The kids would love them, their sports interests are mainly football, dancing and swimming.

  9. We already have quite the collection of smashers and my kids Love them! Remind me a little of the Grocery gang. My youngest does swimming at the minute and my eldest does Martial arts.
