If you're old enough to remember the scratch-n-sniff craze of the 1980s, then you'll fully understand the appeal of Whiffer Sniffers, a line of collectible plush backpack clips, huggable plush and yes, stickers. On the market for the past year or so, these scented characters each have a distinctive personality and smell, and The Rock Daughters™ have amassing a nice little assortment of them, with several clipped to their backpacks.

Playing very much into the same market as popular lines like Shopkins (though these are bigger), kids love to not only collect these, but to play with them and have adventures. There's also "Mystery Packs" that fall into the ever-popular "blind box" category, with super-rare Whiffer Sniffers like the caramel apple-themed "Huey Gooey" available exclusively in that range. We actually scored one of those in a sample assortment that was sent to Rock Father HQ a few weeks back.

Whiffer Sniffers Review

With a suggested price of just $7.99 for the single clips, these would make a great stocking stuffer for the upcoming holiday season, or just a fun addition to the daily school routine.
