SideKix Toy Giveaway

Have you heard of Sidekix?  They are a fun new toy that transforms from a soft ball into a cute stuffed animal friend, recommended for ages 3 and up.  There are many different styles to choose from, and the one we received is a dragon named Inferno.
 Cort really likes to play ball, so he had fun tossing Inferno about in ball form.  But then you can unzip the ball and revealed inside you find....

A dragon friend!

One of the best features about Sidekix is that they have magnets in their feet.  So you can attach them to anything metal.

Pierce had a wonderful time taking Inferno about the house to see where he would stick, and where he wouldn't.  I guess Inferno likes things hot, so he took to the woodstove right away.

Just a couple of things we weren't crazy about with the Sidekix.  You might note from the first picture that the zipper is plastic.  Well the zipper was difficult to navigate, and when I was trying to help the boys unzip it one of the teeth broke off, so we were no longer able to use the zipper.  This happened the first day we had the toy.  The other thing is that the Sidekix has a loop on it so you can clip it to a backpack, but ours did not come with a clip.  I'd love to see Sidekix upgrade their zippers and include clips with all of their toys (I think at this time the clip is included with the barnyard chick). 

Aside from that, the boys really enjoyed playing with Inferno, and it's a cute and very huggable toy.  I love that it's small in size, versatile, and doesn't take up a lot of space.

I visited the site and immediately was enchanted by that adorable yellow chick that comes out of a cracked egg. Made me smile :-)

pretty cute toy, but sounds as if the need to improve the quality a bit!

Too bad about the zipper. I've purchased clothing that had the same problem....

Valerie said...

It looks like a really cool toy, and it would be cool if they would upgrade the zipper, too so it would last longer.

Lisa-have a great weekend, ok? And I will talk to you soon:)
