One of the awesome things about being a parent is that it allows you to indulge in childhood crazes and silly games without looking ridiculous. One thing my kids really enjoy is collecting ‘things’, something I also loved when I was younger and now I can go for it all over again. The excitement of adding new pieces to your collection, the endless studying of that little catalogue to see which designs you are missing and that ‘moment of truth’ when you rip open a blind packet to unveil your new treasure.
The latest collecting toy to hit Australian stores is Sonny Angel, a cute little winged boy doll that is rapidly stealing hearts all across the country and around the world. Sporting nothing but an eye-catching head piece Sonny is an innocent little toy, much more peaceful than scary robots and violent fighting machines and more age appropriate than Barbie and Bratz dolls covered in make up. The funny things is that our kids still haven’t noticed, or commented on, his Adam’s costume.
There are lots of different Sonny Angels available and new designs are released all the time so you can keep growing your collection. Current series include Vegetables, Fruit, Animals and Marine and with 12 Sonny Angel designs per series that is a lot of angelic pieces to collect. All Sonny Angel dolls are sold ‘blind’ so while you can pick the series you won’t know which doll you’ll get. If you buy multiple dolls from the series in one purchase you are guaranteed to receive no doubles.
Disclaimer: Sonny Angel may or may not bring you happiness, I am afraid I can’t give guarantees. What he will bring you is plenty of smiles as he is super duper adorable, kids will love building their own collection and they make great imaginative play toys (at 10cm high they’re perfect for ‘on the go’). Be warned that collecting these little dudes is quite addictive and your child may want to grow a very large Sonny Angel family!
Sonny Angels are sold individually with 1 doll per box and a little collection booklet showing all the different designs is included. You can find Sonny Angel in the Coccinella store on Australian market place Down That Little Lane. Normally each doll costs $10.95 with a flat rate shipping fee of $8.95 no matter how big or small your order but for a limited time only Sonny Angel dolls are on special for the reduced price of $9.95 per doll or $119.95 for a complete series of 12.
