With the kids fully back to school, naturally along comes the next school yard collectable. This term it is SuperZings series 2. My pair were already big fans of the first series so were only too delighted to get their hands on series 2. So whats new with series 2. Mammy is so out of touch with these things that I roped in my oldest to fill me on all the new features:
- 80 new multi-coloured characters, each with a matching ‘rival‘
- New hideouts
- New key character which for series 2 is the extremely rare and elusive ‘Professor K’ – the inventor of ‘Krystaline’, a special substance that creates the SuperCrystal SuperZings.
There are 24 ‘SuperCrystal’ characters to collect
- Lots of new SuperZings vehicles in the form of a range of SuperJets – motorbike, boat, helicopter and quad, eight to collect in a variety of different colours.
- Ultra cool new play sets, such as the Police station, Secret lab and Kaboom Race Set
My oldest loves the excitement of getting one of the rare ones and we can excitedly report that we got one of the rare silver finish ones”Super Riff” – can you spot him in the pic opposite?!
Mamma Fairy Verdict
The boys love these, the highlight was the SuperZings comic which sets out all the characters and their matching rival which is a great way to keep track of the ones you have they tick them off the comic book. The play sets will be on this years Christmas wish list, a great idea for gifts or stocking fillers. The best thing about this series is aside from the fact they are so collectable and with the amount of them there seems to be less risk of duplicates but conversely less chance of obtaining the elusive Professor K!
This series is so pocket friendly and another plus for me is the different types of products and associated prices from the character by themselves, to one with a hideout and right up to the play set.
There is also the Super Zings website www.superzings.com with lots more information and activities.
Note: We were sent some items from series 2 to try however all views are mine or the boys where appropriate.
