I love it when I have new toy that I can't wait to tell you about and so I am super excited to tell you all about Shimmer stars.
If you have a little one who loves cute little animals but also loves getting all glammed up with sparkles and pretty things then this toy is perfect for them.
Shimmers stars are you new pet that you can glam up at the same time as glamming yourself up by adding fabulous shimmers and accessories.
We was sent one to review and Lily was so excited when she saw it. She loved that it was a super cute unicorn and she was excited to get it out the box.
The set also comes with a pink brush to brush her hair and a headband.
If that isn't cute enough that you have a matching pet, it also comes with a special shaped wand that you can attach sequins with to make your pet shimmer, then your child can attach them to their own hair so then again, they match.
The way the sequins attach is really magical for kids plus it is really easy for them to do! I was really impressed with how easy they went on and its a really fun way for kids to be able to do it.
Its all done with your special magic wand. The wand opens up by twisting it. I found this hard at the start and couldn't twist it, but then realised there is a very thin layer of tape holding it together. After the tape is removed it twists and opens very easily. The handle of the wand then comes apart, you then get a sequin and lay it on top of the part of the star that has a hole in it. You push the wand handle onto the sequin and it attaches to your handle. The handle has a button on it and you simply press the button as you press it onto the pet. This easy attaches it.
Lily really loved playing with this toy, she sat for ages placing lots of sequins onto her pet, and then she let me put some on her and then of corse, she wanted to put some on me.
I think this toy is really something different to others out on the market and if you child loves soft toys then this would be a way to buy them one but with a difference.
You can pick up your very own shimmer star from Smyths Toy Store. They are priced at £19.99 and there is also choice of cat, pup or panda if you didn't want a unicorn.
