AD | Review
It’s no secret that the Bear LOVES anything small world play. So, when we heard about the new Nanables collection I immediately knew that she would love it. So, we were delighted to be asked to take a closer look.
WHAT ARE NANABLES?
Nanables are the new must have collectable. Teeny tiny nanos live in these adorable, bright and beautiful houses. With 12 to collect – 6 each from Rainbow Way and Sweetness Town – you can build your very own colour filled towns.
Each cute house comes with 2 nano’s included one of which is kept as a secret reveal. Your nanos can then hangout in their houses either in the doorway or in the integrated hangout spaces. That’s not all though as you can also take a peek inside through the peephole to see the colourful world of nano’s inside.
In Rainbow Way you can find the ‘make it rain-bow arcade’, the ‘over-the-moon macarons’, the ‘rainbow-tique’, the ‘sparkle day spa’, ‘the gilded wing’ and the ‘twinkle twinkle inn’. Then over in Sweetness Town you can find ‘cupcake place’, the ‘dusted donut diner’, the ‘gumdrop gazebo’, the ‘kettle corner bistro’, the ‘lolli-pop stars dance studio’ and of course the ‘milk and cookie mill’.
Needless to say, there is choice enough for people to build a town to suit even the sweetest tooth (do you see what I did there?!)
That’s not all though. Your play can take an extra dimension by downloading the Nanables app. Scan your Nanables house to bring the nano’s world to life using augmented reality. With extra games and activities, it opens up an extra digital dimension to small world play.
A new house is opened in the app for free each week. However, scan any dwellings from your collection to open up that area ready for immediate exploration and play.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
I knew the Bear would love Nanables and they really did capture her imagination. What I wasn’t expecting was just how much Henry loved them too. Playing together they had the best time exploring the different worlds and creating little streets for the different nanos to go and visit. Listening them invite each other around for dinner and a cup of tea was nothing short of adorable.
Be warned though, the nano’s really are tiny. The Bear LOVED this about them but seeing as my two love playing outside, it did make keeping an eye on the little ones rather interesting so these were quickly relegated to an indoor toy! They didn’t care though, as they spend hours building their own little worlds.
The added benefit to their size is also how portable they are. Having just come back from a weekend away, the Bear happily took her entire Nanables town away with her. How portable they are was a real bonus for us as it is hours of imaginative play packed away into a small bag.
