In case you haven’t guessed, the kids are into all things Halloween this year. I’m not sure whether it’s because Greg is older and has noticed Halloween themed TV, or if Emma’s love of sweets has reached a crescendo after receiving some Hallween sweets, but either way they love it!
The excitement increased to almost deafening levels when we received a really cool package containing a fierce pair of Feisty Pets and some frightening face paints.
I’m certain you’ll have heard of Feisty Pets – they’re those cute cuddly toys that look insanely sweet and innocent, until you grab them behind their ears and expose a fearsome snarl. You know, like this:
Our wolfie friend was a big hit with Greg (his real name is Sammy Suckerpunch and he’s actually a grey husky) , while Emma claimed the adorable unicorn with a dangerous side (apparently named Glenda Glitterpoop)!
We thought it would be pretty awesome if we could paint the kids faces to look like the Feisty Pets’ dark side, which went down a treat with both children, but more so with Greg because he’s been asking for his face to be painted daily now!
For reference, this is Greg, pre-face paint. He’s been terrorising family members by showing them his husky looking cuddly and activating the scary face as he asks them to stroke it.
You’ll have to excuse my face paint skills, kids never stay still!
Considering Greg was a fidget-bum, I don’t think I did too bad of a job. I probably won’t be giving up my day job any time soon though!
Emma looks just as sweet as her unicorn in this ‘before pic’:
I think I did a fantastic job of making her look terrifying with the face paints (I just didn’t make her look much like a unicorn!)
Despite my lacking face paint skills, we had a fun afternoon and the Feisty Pets have an excellent way to surprise any unsuspecting visitors. I’m kind of looking forward to shocking the trick-or-treaters with them on Halloween too.
The Feisty Pets have gone down really well in our house, both kids love them and have had some real fun playing with them. We’re had them a few days and the novelty has not warn off. I have repeatedly been terrorised by a unicorn or a husky as I’ve gone about my daily business, and it doesn’t look set to stop over half term.
Even though both children have seen the pets go from friendly to fiendly and a matter of second, I’ve still witnessed fits of giggles as they each prank one another with their own favourite pet. Greg seems to be using him as a way to get out of eating vegetables/tidying up, by telling me I’ve upset ol’ Feisty before showing me the snarl.
Great little toys and lots of fun!
Available at all good toy retailers like Smyths, Argos and many more!
