We were sent some SuperZings: Rivals of Kaboom Series 3 for this review.
What are SuperZings?
SuperZings are mini superheroes and villains who live in the city of Kaboom. They all belong to one of six gangs, that each has a team captain and a vehicle or hideout.
SuperZings are little rubbery and brightly coloured characters. SuperZings are all everyday objects (for example a sandcastle, a paint roller or a cookie) which are either superheroes or supervillains.
SuperZings Series 3
SuperZings Pizza Mission
The SuperZings Series 3: Mission – Pizza Rider pack retails at £15. Inside the blister pack are Superhero Supperoni and SuperVillano Circutlar! The set comes with three little pizzas, which you put in the box on the top of the vehicle. When you squeeze the star buttons on either side of the box, the tiny pizzas fire out! The pack also includes a sandwich board, which advertises pizzas, and a vehicle in the shape of a pizza wheel!
SuperZing Kaboom Blaster
SuperZings Series 3 Kaboom Blaster is a sound and trap toy and retails at around £6. Push the top and it makes noises! Use the box to throw the SuperVillains in jail! Ours came with the Superhero DJ Scratch, but you might get his rival Beatbox.
The SuperZings Series 3 Superbot retails at £4.00. There are four of these to collect! Each pack contains one SuperZing and one SuperBot. We got the Twister Crack, with its rotating arms at the push of a button it wipes out anyone unlucky enough to be nearby.
SuperZings Mega Pack
The Mega Pack is just £5 and includes five SuperZings and one Super Slider! The Super Slider is a pull back vehicle, which any of the SuperZings can ride. There are six super sliders to collect, each in two different colours! This pack was the one my boys loved the most – not only is it a load of blind bags (which kid doesn’t enjoy a blind bag?!) but it’s also a poster of all the SuperZings Series 3. You can see the teams and work out if you have the SuperVillains or SuperHeroes!
SuperZings 10 Pack
This blister contains 10 different SuperZings: one of them an exclusive golden figure of a SuperZing, and 9 normal SuperZings.
How many SuperZings are there to collect?
There are more than 90 new SuperZings to collect in Series 3! They are available in individual blind bags, or you can get blister packs with five or ten SuperZings inside. There are also play sets and mission packs with buildings or vehicles inside.
SuperZings are awesome collectables, and come with leaflets that explain the teams the character is in, and their rival – you need to collect the set to have a full city of Kaboom. We didn’t get any duplicates in our blind bags or blister sets, but I’m certain that there are other kids who collect SuperZings so we could have swapped some if we had needed to.
How much are SuperZings?
SuperZings are great as pocket money gifts, as the blind bags are only 80 pence each! Kids can buy their own, with a bit of money from relatives, the tooth fairy, or from doing chores.
The bigger packs are more expensive, with the Mission packs at around £15, and the Play sets costing around £20.
SuperZings Series 3: Mission 2 – Total Demolition
This pack includes 2 exclusive SuperZings: the superhero Constructik and the supervillain Hammer Jack! Who will fight to defend or overthrow Kaboom City?
Are you ready to play the Total Demolition Mission?
Where to buy SuperZings
Or if you want to pick up some from a “real store” you can buy SuperZings in the Co-op (where they have the exclusive £5 Mega Pack!), Wilko, and Smyths. SuperZings have launched internationally, so you might spot them while you’re on holiday, too!
How to play with SuperZings
My boys have had hours of storytelling fun with the SuperZings Series 3! The little toys inspire lots of awesome imaginative play. There are also colouring sheets and comics to download from the SuperZings website, as well as little episodes to watch!
We look forward to future series of SuperZings, and we have been on a mission to collect more!
