Blip Toys Introduces Squinkie Doos

Blip Toys has introduced a new addition to its Squinkies brand: Squinkie Doos. Squinkie Doos are just like Squinkies: small, squishy, and collectible, encased in a plastic toy bubble. But, each of the new Squinkie Doos has a mane of colorful hair that kids can play with.

Figure packs include three Squinkie Doo characters. The small Squinkie Doos Salon & Spa Playset includes two Squinkie Doos and hairstyling accessories such as a swivel chair, blow-dryer and hand mirror, and brush. The play set is a hairstyling center and a Squinkie Doo dispenser—the bubbles go in the salon dome and come out after twisting the dial. After the Squinkie Doos have popped out of their bubbles, they can enjoy their spa experience.

Squinkie Doos are now available at Toys “R” Us stores nationwide. They will be arriving at other retailers throughout this month.
