Have your kids discovered Xia Xia Pets yet? My daughter is freaking out over these cute little crabs and accessories.We were given the opportunity to host a Xia Xia party thanks to Mom Select and these were a huge hit with all the kids. I had expected the boys to reject them right away as girls toys,but was pleasantly surprised when they asked for one to keep for themselves. .
We were sent a variety of crabs and shells to share,so each person could have a crab and extra shell to keep.They each come with 2 cute little friends inside that you can collect and trade to your hearts content.The crabs come in blue,pink,purple and orange and are a blast for the little ones to play with.The shells are really easy to interchange as well,they simple snap on and off,so the kids can trade or switch shells as often as they like.Some of the shells are decorated and some are glittery and they come in a variety of colors.
To play with these all you have to do is touch the claw to set the crabs in motion.If you hold it or a few seconds it will make the motion last longer too.I noticed if the crabs are walking and bump into something,it will just help them keep going and will not hurt them at all.There are several play sets you can buy to make the collection complete like the Rio de Trio set shown below.We were sent 2 other sets as well,but we shared them with party guests.Of course now I will be buying new ones for my daughter for Christmas since these are top on her list.These sets are really easy to assemble with interlocking pieces and I expect we will be seeing lots more from them in the future.
