Need a fun gift for a child or some stocking stuffer ideas? This collection from Tech 4 Kids, is sure to have something fun to add.
First, the Mash Em's and Fash Em's!
We first saw these when we were checking out at a store, and the kids were intrigued to see what they were. They’re a mystery toy, so you won’t know which one you’re going to get.
I don’t know about you, but one of our favorite surprises growing up was the surprise grab bag they use to sell at random stores. You never knew what you were going to get, so the surprise of it all was exciting. Well, that's kind of the idea Tech 4 Kids has with these Mash Em's, Squishy Pops, and Micro Lites. The cool part about this line, is you can tell the collection you are buying, like Pixar, Batman, My Little Pony, etc. But the character will remain a mystery until opened.
The Mash Em's line includes; Marvel, Avengers, Justice League, Paw Patrol, Ninja Turtles, Disney, Pixar, Angry Birds, Flappybird, Batman, Spiderman, and Finding Dory!
And the Fash Em's line includes; My Little Pony, Disney Princesses, Frozen, Hello Kitty, Minnie Mouse, and Littlest Pet Shop.
The Mash Em's and Fash Em's come in a fun cylinder case, and when opened you'll find your new squishy friend. Mash Em's are a sticky type plastic filled with soapy water, that makes them squishy and mash-able. Squeeze 'Em, Twist 'Em, Mash 'Em and Smash 'Em.
When first taken out of the package, there's a bit of a funky smell, but it wasn't too bad. Kind of the smell of goop, or the liquid Putty Noise Makers, if you remember those. Rest assured, Mash Em's and Smash Em's are non-toxic though. Again, it is only filled with soapy water, so there's no need to worry about what happens if there is a leak or it happens to pop. Mash Em's are not un-poppable, so you can squeeze them and twist them, and everything, just be sure not to stick a finger in it while it's being squeezed or squeeze it with both hands. It's like anything water filled, it can pop.
The kids loved them the second we opened them up. They have such a blast with them, and even us adults too. Kind of like a stress reliever ball. ;) Definitely a fun toy to add to the stockings for just a few dollars.
Now the Micro Lites!
These Micro Lites have the same idea with the mystery bag. You will know what collection you are buying, but you won't know which character you get until opened. The Micro Lites are just as the name says...There's a small toy that when squeezed, a light comes on. Not quite laser beam, but more of a mini flashlight.
They come in different colors of light as well. We got one with a red light, and the light was surprisingly super bright, so be sure not to look directly into it, as this one in particular could hurt your eyes if you look at it too long.
The best part about these Micro Lites is the little loop they have on them. You can attach them to a bag or packpack, or a string or necklace, or whatever else you want. Could be good on your keys or to wear on a purse for a little extra light when you need it.
These Micro Lites come in My Little Pony, Avengers, Ninja Turtles, Peppa Pig, and more!

And finally, the Squishy Pops!
These Squishy Pops are squishable mini characters that stick to almost anything, and they can "pop" right off. And you can collect one of each character. Right now, Squishy Pops feature a line of My Little Pony, and Finding Dory. They come in these cute little "homes", a heart shape for My Little Pony, and a seashell for Finding Dory.
Stick them to windows, mirrors, tables, glasses, etc. They even have playsets you can get as well. These mini pop-able, squishable collectible, characters are great for stocking stuffers!
