I don’t know about you but I cannot move for unicorns and sparkle at the moment. It’s everywhere! When we were asked to review a RainboCorn Sequin Surprise I suspected that Moose would love it!
What is a RainboCorn?
The RainboCorns are a very colourful, very cuddly collection of different magical characters. Each RainboCorn has their own personality and very fluffy mane.
There are 12 different RainboCorns based on six cuddly cute animals (Puppycorns, Kittycorns, Hamstercorns, Bunnycorns, Unicorns and Monkeycorns) and every animal comes in two fun, funky designs.
There is a great little series of webisodes to go with the toy which are available to watch on YouTube. We especially enjoyed episode two:
What’s in the box?
There is no box, your RainboCorn comes in an egg which is part of the play (I really liked this) which is then secured in clear plastic wrap. Moose found this a little tricky to get into by himself so I helped. On the front of the egg is a sequin heart. You brush the sequins to see what your RainboCorn loves. Our one loves cherries!
Once the wrapping was off the egg, Moose gave it a big hug and POP his RainboCorn was revealed.
Moose was thrilled to find a HamsterCorn inside his surprise egg. Pixelle is his name. He has rainbow coloured hair and little pink wings and Moose says he loves his new friend.
Moose was happy to see that the sequin heart from the egg fits onto the front of his RainboCorn. When he looked inside the egg after removing Pixelle he was really excited to find a second, much smaller surprise egg!
Each RainboCorn comes with a little Boo-Boocorn – a tiny collectable baby Rainbocorn hidden in a secret egg.
Moose loves how cuddly Pixelle the RainboCorn is and finds him a great choice to snuggle with while watching his cartoons. With 12 RainboCorns to collect I definitely think this will be on his Christmas list for Santa!
My thoughts on the RainboCorn
From a parental point of view I thought initially that £24.99 was perhaps a bit steep for a surprise toy. However, it is very high quality and will, I suspect take a good amount of play without any seams giving way. I really liked that there were 3 surprises in the opening of the toy and the fact that it is a lovely quiet toy which does not require assembly (well, aside from slotting a heart into place) or a volume switch makes a very viable candidate for an excellent gift choice! Encouraging imaginative play is great for children and you don’t get much more imaginary than a winged hamstercorn which loves cherries!
Is it for boys or girls?
I think you can see from Moose’s face that the RainboCorn was definitely a hit with him so based on that I would answer a solid BOTH.
Where can you get one?
Rainbocorns are priced at £24.99 and are available from Argos, Smyths, The Entertainer, Asda and B&M. Monkeycorns are sold exclusively in Argos. You can find out more about RainboCorns here: www.rainbocorns.com
