Ghoul and Ghost Products for Kids

Kids are full of contradictions. Take my girls, for example. They are almost 9, and have recently presented a strong case for their having an Instagram account to which I relented. I know they are young. But it is heavily, heavily policed by me and of course Private. So, there on the one hand, is an example of them growing up – real Tweens.

On the other hand, they lose a tooth and write a letter to the tooth fairy. Go figure.

One thing they are not sure about – is whether they believe in ghosts or not. I think it will remain like this for a while – frankly it’s not something I have ever grown out of! And this year is a big year for ghosts with the new Ghostbusters 3 Movie release in July. So today’s post is about a couple of brilliant ghost related products I have stumbled upon.

Spring is kind of happening. The clocks are changing shortly, there’s a whisper of warmth in the sun, blossom has started to come out. It’s time to get your kids planting.

Smiski – New Collectable Figurines for Kids from Sonny Angel

Anyone that knows me, knows that I am still in many many ways a small child. I really need to get my own way. As an extension of this – I can throw tantrums – sometimes involving foot stamping. I prefer to eat crisps and chocolate rather than a real meal. I also have a slightly concerning obsession with Hello Kitty and anything cute or Kawaii – as us professionals of cuteness call it. I also like to collect things – as a kid – mainly perfume samples, and as an adult – shoes and bags. And today’s post, falls very neatly into that category.

Made by the creators of another super cute collectible obsession in our house – Sonny Angels – Smiski is a fun little creature that glows in the dark and likes to hide in the corner.

These are curious creatures that love hiding in small spaces and corners of your room.

Although they like to stay hidden, you might discover one at night as they mysteriously glow in the dark. It is interesting to see the many types of Smiski all with different personalities.

However, just why the exist in the first place, nobody quite knows. Actually I do – it’s so saddos like me buy them, because we still have this hangover from our youth about collecting things that we want our kids to embrace.

Like their more colourful, bottom-out cousins Sonny Angels, these guys are too sold in a blind box – so it’s a surprise what you get.

And what I like about these, over the Sonny Angels, is that these are great for boys to collect too – the Sonny Angels are a bit girly. These are Series 1 and there are 7 to collect. They cost around £3.50 plus shipping from Sonny Angels.
