Have you ever felt like Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde? Do you have a secret personality that can't wait to burst out? Here's a new, fun toy that knows exactly what you're going through! Check out these unique line of transformable Freaky Pets:
About Freaky Pets
Freaky Pets are the first-of-its-kind line of transformable plush creatures that come to life in an online virtual world. The cute creatures turn into creepy critters just by turning the animals inside out, two toys in one! Kids will love to collect and play Freaky Pets with friends! Freak Pets can be purchased at select Hallmark stores and after purchasing you receive a code which allows you access into the fun online virtual 3-D world where your stuffed animals come to life! Kids can let their imagination run wild while caring and training their Freaky Pet. After their pet learns enough tricks, kids can put them into a competition with other users. They can also play mini-games winning coins which can be used to personalize their pet. The plush pets and 3-D game combine the timeless fun of collecting stuffed animals with age-appropriate content online.
My kids adore the Gweek we received to review. They fight over him all the time! They call him Gweeky, and he's a firmly established member of their stuffed toy family. I find him kind of hilarious, because in many ways Gweeky is just like my kids.
Most of the time, Gweeky is meek and mild-mannered. So adorable and soft!
Occasionally, he reveals a different side of his personality. Just open up the velcro closure on Gweeky's back and turn him inside out to see Gweeky when he's cranky!
Meet the evil-tempered Gweeky. You do NOT want to mess with this guy. Chocolate ice cream and a good night's sleep will help sweeten his temper. Oh hang on, that's Jammy, not Gweeky.
There are just 2 quality issues I have with this toy. First, Cranky Gweeky's fangs are pretty crumpled and rumpled from being squooshed up inside Cute Gweeky most of the time. Second, the velcro closure doesn't shut properly, so Cute Gweeky always has a bit of Cranky Gweeky popping out of his butt. But the kids don't care about that, they only care that Gweeky is the adorable little guy they can play with in real life and online.
Freaky Pets releases first single and album
Freaky Pets just released the first single called ‘I Feel Good’ featuring the Black Eyed Puffs, from the album ‘New Pets on The Block’ which is filled with 5 kid friendly tunes! ‘I Feel Good’ is a fun, pop dance tune which celebrates feeling good, feeling positive, and knowing that even when things get a little rough, they will get better! The first 5,000 people get a free download by visiting www.FreakyPets.com. The full album filled with fun music for kids will be released on July 12th and will be sold on iTunes and Amazon.com.
