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

Drop, fizz, and find a mermaid or dinosaur figure with the Fizz n' Surprise Mermaids and Fizz n' Surprise Dinosaurs from Moose Toys. The shell, and egg-shaped toys have mini figures hidden inside. Kids can fill a bowl with warm water, drop the shell or egg into the water, and watch as it magically begins to fizz. It takes a couple minutes - and once the shell or egg has fizzed completely, kids will find a mini mermaid or dinosaur figure in the murky water. There are 12 different mermaids to collect, and each has a color changing tail. There are 28  dinosaurs to build as the figures can be taken apart, and their parts mixed and matched. Recommended for ages 5 and up, these feel a bit like a science experiment, which many kids will enjoy. These were designed for playing outside the bath; we recommend playing on a table.

Is It Fun?

These feel a bit like a science experiment, which many kids will enjoy. Watching the eggs and shells fizz in the water is really cool, and the end result - a mini mermaid or dinosaur figure is a lot of fun. The figures are great for collecting, and as part of imaginative play.  The color changing tails on the mermaids are a fun touch, and the dinosaurs can be taken apart and mixed and matched for building play. Although these are played with in water, they are not bath toys so should not be brought into the bath with a child.

Who It’s For
These are for boys and girls ages 5 and up. They'll appeal to kids who like collecting mini figures, kids who like mermaids or dinosaurs, and kids who like bath bombs even though these are not to be used in the bath. They have a similar effect.
What To Be Aware Of

Be sure to remove both the paper, and plastic wrappers before placing in warm water. An adult may need to help get the wrappers off. Although these are played with in water, they are not bath toys. They were designed for playing outside the bath. We recommend playing on a table that you don't mind getting a little wet. 

Each Fizz n' Surprise Mermaid, and Fizz n' Surprise Dinosaur is sold separately. There are 12 different mermaids to collect, and they feature color changing tails. The instructions say to dip the mermaid from warm to cold water but we had to put ours back in warm water afterwards to see the color change. The dinosaurs can be taken apart and mixed and matched to build 28 different dinos.
