Xia-Xia: Collectible Hermit Crabs Review and Giveaway


Xia-Xia: Collectible Hermit Crabs Review and Giveaway

From the makers of Zhu-Zhu pets and Dagedar come the next Hottest Holiday Toy!

About Xia-Xia
Welcome to a place where every day is Carnival with Xia-Xia (pronounced Shah-Shah), new colorful, collectible hermit crabs.  Xia-Xia combine the lovable charm of a real hermit crab but add a twist of imagination.  Each Xia-Xia comes with a candy colored shell in which kids can find a little friend hidden inside.  Additional shells can be purchased so children can style their Xia-Xia in their favorite fashions.  For an added bonus, each additional shell contains two little friends.  Xia-Xia have colorful playsets, bringing alive a world of color, magic and imagination for kids to enjoy.





Meet the Xia-Xia Crabs:
Turks~

She is sweet and bubbly, Turks has a red shell and girly pink bows, making her a cute companion!
Trinidad~
With his dazzling, bright orange and yellow swirled shell, Trinidad loves to dance. Press his claw and watch him skitter scatter in a fun parade! 
  
Bimini~
Her pink polka-dot and stripped shell, Bimini loves to strut her stuff in different shell fashions!
Tobago~
His rough-and-tumble blue exterior and happy grin, Tobago is always dancing to the Xia-Xia samba!

There are also 3 playsets available to round out the fun! 




 
Rio de Trio Village: With fun, colorful decor and a bonus of three rooms, Xia-Xia can skitter scatter back and forth through the set.









 Confetti Cottage: an adorable home for Xia-Xia, the confetti cottage even doubles as a carrier so kids can take Xia-Xia on the go, and it connects with the Copacabana playset.










 Copacabana Playset: A perfect place for Xia-Xia to scurry and slide, this playset even connects with the Confetti Cottage so kids can build their own Xia-Xia world.








Over Thirty Mommy's Thoughts

Wiggle Bean (she actually told me she is not a bean any more, I about cried) fell in love with Xia-Xia the moment it arrived.  She was jumping all over the room begging me to open up all the boxes.  Unfortunately for her it was getting close to nap time so she did not get to play with them just yet.  While she was napping I opened up everything and got it all ready for her to play with when she woke up.

She was so excited when she got up and saw it all laid out in the living room waiting for her (she was still a little groggy, hence the sleepy eyes).  She loved every little thing about the Xia-Xia's.  I let her play with the little friends that come with each crab and shell for the first day but then put them away since she is a little young for them and I wanted to make sure to have them available for the party.

Bean played with the little crabs for well over an hour before I pulled her away for other activities.  Her favorite play set is the Confetti Cottage, she loves toting around a crab or two and even took it to share day at her preschool.

The Xia-Xia  set remains set up right in the middle of the living room because she play with it every day and shows off her crabbies to everyone that visits us.  

Overall I think these are great toys.  They are brightly colored and exciting for children.  There are some small pieces that are not suitable for really young children but you can easily put those up out of the way and play with the crabs and playsets.

We received 4 crabs, two each of Turks and Tobago, four extra Shells, and the three playsets.  The extra shells are a great way to make the same crab look different so she thinks she has 4 different crabs.  

There will definitely be more Xia-Xia crabs on her stocking stuffer wish list this year.
