We were lucky enough to be asked to review the Lunch Box Deluxe Pack from Series 3 of Num Noms, a Series 3 mystery pack and also two new Lights Num Noms mystery packs. We reviewed some Num Noms from Series 2 towards the end of last year and BattleKid absolutely loved the vibrating Noms so I was intrigued to see what we got this time.
I had seen a TV advert for the new Lights Num Noms and thought they were a good idea and I was delighted when we received two as part of our review pack. As soon as I opened the package and revealed what was hiding inside, BattleKid immediately said “eee-open”. This mama duly obliged and he dived straight in to see what the new Lights Num Noms were all about.
The new Lights Num Noms mystery packs are packaged in a juice carton and contain a scented, opaque Num that stacks on top of the Nom, which when pressed flashes two different coloured lights. There are over 300 sweet scented combinations to make. We received two of these and they went down a storm with BattleKid.
We also received a Lunch Box Deluxe Pack (Style 1) from Series 3 which contained no less than 10 scented outer Nums from a variety of Marshmallows, Donuts, Fruits & Veggies and Candy. There was also a mystery Num and 2 scented inner Noms including an eraser and a stamp. This pack was really great as the package they come in can be used as a storage box for all the Num Noms. No more losing Nums under the sofa or stepping on a Nom and setting the vibrations off, giving yourself a fright! Brilliant idea.
Our mystery box, which is included in the lunch box, was a lip gloss Num Nom. What a great idea! It’s little enough for small hands and ideal for young girls to pop into their pockets or bags and a way for them to feel grown up. BattleKid didn’t want to try it on his lips but I did and the scent is very subtle and the lip gloss doesn’t stain your lips at all. This might disappoint some little girls but not their mums I suspect. But what a lovely little surprise!
BattleKid had a great time playing with the Lights Num Noms, even trying to blind me with them during one play session, but I must admit his favourite thing we received was the stamp Nom from the Lunch Box. He went around stamping any paper he could find and when he ran out I found him stamping the TV! Uh oh!
I did notice that the scents this time around seemed a bit strong than the last Series we received. Whether they have been made a bit strong or not, I don’t know, but I could distinguish the scents more this time. My personal favourite was Peyton Peppermint as I could really get the peppermint coming through. Smelling all the lovely sweet scents was making me rather hungry I have to say.
What we loved about Series 3 and the Lights Num Noms
- Great new variety to add to our collection.
- Scents seemed strong this time around.
- Lights Num Noms flash in two different colours.
- Hundreds of combinations to be made.
- New stamp Nom went down a storm with BattleKid.
- The eraser and lip gloss Noms were a nice surprise and great new additions to the Series.
What we didn’t like about Series 3 and the Lights Num Noms
- Nothing, BattleKid loved these again!
Num Noms are suitable for ages 3-8 and are ideally sized for little hands. Imaginations can run wild and get creative with these and the new Lights Num Noms add even more fun into the mix. Little girls will love the new lip gloss Nom and little boys, if they are anything like BattleKid, will be stamping away to their hearts content with the new stamp Noms.
So if you are fearing the worst this coming half-term why not grab some Num Noms to keep your little ones entertained for hours. Num Noms are available from a wide range of retailers such as Argos, Smyths, Toy’R’Us and prices start from £5.99. The Lunch Box we received for this review is priced at £14.99 and the Lights Num Noms mystery packs retail at £3.99, both from Toy’R’Us.
