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

You'll be saying "OMG" each time you open up an Oh! My GIF. This is a new toy line of animated figurines, or GIFbits, to collect and share. There are more than 50 to collect in series 1, recreating favorite internet GIFs, memes, and stickers. To activate the surprise movement and unique hashtag message, simply pull, push, turn, or twist the GIFbit. 

You can see examples of pixelated GIFbits on the sides of each 1 Bit Pack box, and when you lift the lid, there's a little bit of action and movement. For instance, a hamburger lifts a barbell and his bun falls down, exposing his shorts - #Fail. Open the box all the way to reveal which GIFbit is inside. For instance, you might find a box of cereal that opens up to reveal a #hangry crocodile. A collector's guide helps you see which hashtag theme your GIFbit comes from (there are six) and whether your GIFbit is common, rare, ultra rare, or limited edition. Cereal Crocko, as the hangry croc is known, is common.

Additionally, the GIFbit includes a card that you can scan into the free GIFs Gone Live AR app, which will be available May 1. From there, you'll be able to play with your GIFbit in the digital world.

Is It Fun?

These are very silly and very cute. Kids will like the surprise of seeing which GIFbit they've collected and the movement their GIFbit does. The app portion of the play isn't really necessary to enjoy Oh! My GIF, and in fact, it won't be available until May, but it will offer more ways to play with the GIFbits. We can see kids snapping selfies of themselves with their GIFbits, with or without the app, and sharing on social media using the hashtags associated with their GIFbits.

Who It’s For

The Oh! My GIF 1 Bit Packs are for ages 6 and up. Kids who like internet memes and hashtags will think collecting these silly small toys is a lot of fun.
