Orbeez Swirl 'n Whirl Review (The Maya Group)

What It Is

The Orbeez Swirl 'n Whirl is the newest way to play with Orbeez, tiny hard pellets that grow into colorful squishy balls in water. The toy comes with 750 Orbeez that kids grow in clean water for three to four hours or overnight. While you're waiting for the Orbeez to grow, you can assemble the battery-operated playset. When the Orbeez are fully grown, drain the water and pour a handful of Orbeez into the playset's lower dish loading area. The remaining Orbeez can be left in a sealed container to prevent them from shrinking or loaded into the lower dish storage area. Turn on the playset and watch the elevator rotate and pick up Orbeez, bringing them to the very top where they will slide down the spiral track and back to the loading area to do it all again. The Swirl 'n Whirl lights up as it moves.

Is It Fun?

This is definitely a product that is mesmerizing to watch. When it's on, it makes a unique piece of room decor or desktop item. It's also another fun way for fans of Orbeez to play with Orbeez.

Who It’s For

The Orbeez Swirl 'n Whirl is for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Three AA batteries are required but not included.

It took us eight minutes to set up the Swirl 'n Whirl playset, and the instructions were easy to follow.

It's recommended that you remove the Orbeez and replace them with fresh ones after a few uses. Do not store the Orbeez inside the Swirl 'n Whirl.
