Zinkies: Half the Size of Squinkies

MINNETONKA, Minn., Jan. 26, 2012 -- Blip Toys, the innovative toy company behind Squinkies® Mini Collectibles and Playsets, is excited to announce the launch of their newest extension of the Squinkies brand: Squinkies Zinkies.

At about half the size of Squinkies, Zinkies will launch with six unique sets. Each set includes 12 different Zinkies, with characters consisting of colorful little animals like monkeys, puppies and bunnies, to name just a few. Like Squinkies, all Zinkies come in their own plastic bubble that pops open to reveal the "surprize inside."

Every set of Squinkies Zinkies comes with its own squeezer and magnifying glass to accommodate their tiny size. For additional play value, sets also come with their own Display and Play toy where collectors can enjoy and store the newest addition to the Squinkies World.

Squinkies Zinkies will be arriving throughout the month at retailers nationwide, including Target, Wal-Mart and Toys "R" Us.

Other Squinkies products, such as Squinkies Bubble Packs, Cupcake Surprize Bake Shop and the Adventure Mall Surprize, have earned numerous awards since their launch in 2010 and have been identified as some of the most coveted toys of the past two holiday seasons.
