With hair pulled back* (very important - more on that below), The Rock Daughters™ have been spending quite a bit of supervised time with their Bunchems Alive!, mixing-and-matching pieces to create a variety of different items. Addie's been big on the cutesy stuff like puppies, bunnies, etc., while Finn has been all about the more mechanical - vehicles and robots. By building with the Motorized Stick 'Em Ball, now their Bunchems creations can shake, wobble and "dance." Check out one of Addie's:
With Halloween fast-approaching, we've also been working on things like "The Pumpkin King" (a crown on a pumpkin makes it Royally-official) and some little Goblins. In fact, one such creation made its way into our official photo spot in The Toy Testing Facility at Rock Father HQ™:
*Now, it is important to note that Bunchems function much like a natural bur (seed pod) like you might come across outside - something that our seven-year-old was quick to point out, a comparison also made in the instructions. That said, it's important that kids and grownups with long hair (I chopped mine a few years back) have their long locks tied-back and away from the Bunchems. You'll also want to do these on a nice, flat surface, and make sure not to place them on carpet or furniture (anything fibrous) that they might attach to. This includes pets. Here's what Bunchems look like up close:
In the event that you do get caught, Spin Master has a video available to help you: How to get Bunchems out of Hair. There are also warnings in several places on the package, but as with any project such as this, I recommend supervised play.
