The Original Whiffer Sniffers have the distinction of being included in my annual Holiday Wish Guide twice - making the list in back-to-back years for 2016 & 2017. Of the countless collectible backpack clips out there, Whiffer Sniffers win across the board, with adorable characters, great design, and scents that are actually pretty good (I love last year's pumpkin spice offering). For 2018, Series 6 is here and it's rolling out with new characters in two parts. There's also some Super Sniffers along with an Easter offering as well. Curious what the kids will want next? Take a look at the latest additions to The Whiffer Sniffers' roster... personally, I think Series 2 is gonna be perfect for summer, and I've got my eye on Apollo Freeze for myself!
