Can you become the biggest snake? That’s the question posited by the massively-popular mobile game, Slither.io. With over 150 million downloads, and over 120 million plays per day, Slither.io has been consistently been Google Play’s #1 free game, and now it’s making the jump to toys. Revealed this month at Toy Fair 2017 in New York, Bonkers Toys is bringing Slither.io to life as a line of blind bag collectibles, and later, plush. While we’re not at Toy Fair in-person, some of the first samples of the Slither.io blind bags made their way to Rock Father HQ in Illinois, and The Rock Daughters™ (already familiar with the game) were more than happy to crack into four of them. Check out the video below!
Available in a variety of color schemes (Finley was really hoping for an “American Flag” version), these are pretty solid, bendable figures with some good “weight” to them. Since they’re all the same shape, the usual habit of “feeling up” the blind bags won’t work in helping decipher the contents of said bags – a device that will foil the plot of people like myself (I’m not a fan of duplicates, though that’s part of the fun for kids).
Later this year, the Slither.io plush line will roll out, featuring blind box backpack clips, and assortments of large and small plush.
Look for all of these at stores near you very soon, and be sure to check out Bonkers Toys’ official site for more! Bonus: Have you seen Bonkers’ line of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles blind bag keychains?
