ZURU SMASHERS Series 2 have just got GROSS!

GIFTED: Kids love collectables, don’t they?  And having survived the onslaught of Shopkins and Cupcake Surprises, we recently discovered that we’d missed out on the first season of  Zuru SMASHERS from the award-winning toy company.

We were sent some Zuru SMASHERS from the second series, each of which contains a disgusting surprise inside…. various revolting creatures! These SMASHERS come in the shape of an eyeball, just right for Halloween.

There are over 100 characters to collect and this series also features select Smashball Eyeballs with creepy mini-beasts covered in slime!

Ghastly creations include a selection from ‘Odd Bodies’, ‘Icky Insects’, ‘Ooze Dudes’, ‘Awful Animals’, ‘Filthy Food’, ‘Toilet Humour’, and ‘Smash Trash’, with rare, ultra-rare see-thru characters and playset exclusive characters to collect.

Suitable for ages 5+, the SMASHERS Series 2 collection is available in one, three, and eight packs – all full of horrifically foul surprises!

You can store your revolting creatures in a disgustingly gross Collectors Tin which can hold 50 SMASHERS and comes with a grungy Limited Edition Smasher inside!

You can even take your SMASHERS on the road with the Sludge Bus.  Unveil two exclusive characters and unfold the playset to uncover the rank restroom where you can shoot your SMASHERS into the toilet!  Lovely.

To discover your creature, smash the eyeball on the ground (I wouldn’t advise doing it on laminate flooring) and see what is living inside.  Caitlin and Ieuan enjoyed the smashing and the collectables inside are all rather cute, with the possible exception of Poopy and Poo Paper.

You could, if you had the time and energy, reassemble the plastic pieces to recreate the eyeball but my two found the inhabitants far more interesting.

SMASHERS Series 2 are suitable for ages 5+ and available nationwide.  Prices start from £1.99 through to £19.99.

If those aren’t scary enough for you, how about Zuru’s Robo Alive Spider?  I’m not kidding when I say if you don’t like spiders you definitely won’t want one of these scooting around your floor.

It is rather lifelike and, happily, comes with a battery supplied.  Needless to say, the kids are planning to ‘surprise’ the grandparents with it!

And it wouldn’t be Halloween without some slime, would it?  Oosh’s Non-Stick Slime is suitably gross and, um, dangly.


You can find Zuru toys, including the new Gross Smashers at Smyths, Argos and Tesco (in-store only).
