EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Crate Creatures Surprise! toys from MGA Entertainment are fuzzy 7-inch interactive monsters with more than 45 sounds, and effects.  The line includes Pudge, and Snort Hog, which are packaged in cool crates. You've got to free the beasts to have some fun. When you're ready, use the included crowbar to break the creatures out. Be sure to save the crowbar because you can lock them up again when you're done playing. Each creature is a little different though they all work in mostly the same way, and the instructions are easy to follow. Their eyes light up, and they make monster sounds including grunting, burping, and farting.  Switch the monsters from demo mode to on, and choose from two volume levels. There are different ways to activate the creatures. Pull their tongues, feed them the included snacks - Pudge's pizza, and Snort Hog's corndog, or shake or flip them upside down. You can also press Pudge's horn to see his eyes roll or press the button on the back of Snort Hog's head to see snot come out of his nose. Another cool feature of Crate Creatures is the option to record custom phrases. Press the button on their stomachs until you hear a sound. Then record up to 10 seconds of audio. Once you're done, it will play back your recording in a monster voice. You can press the button to hear it again or record something new over it. When you're done playing, Pudge, and Snort Hog will go to sleep and snore. Recommended for kids ages 4 and up, these are really silly, and fun for kids who like gross humor. Three AA batteries are included.
