I am loving that supermarkets are stocking more and more toys. I’m one of those people that’ll venture down the toy aisle, examining toys and pressing all the buttons I can find. Hello, my name is Melanie and I have Peter Pan Syndrome.
Being a big child at heart really helps when I select toys for my kiddies as I always seem to know just what to get. I get really excited when I discover something new at my local supermarkets (I like to shop in a few to get a wider product range.)
I just discovered that the supermarkets are stocking a brand new collectable toy range Cry Babies Magic Tears from IMC toys. These are miniature versions of the hugely popular Cry Babies that I hadn’t gotten around to buying for the children. Would mummy be able to redeem herself with the mini versions. Lets find out!
What are Cry Babies Magic Tears?
These are adorable toys that are hugely collectable. There are 24 dolls to collect in series 1 and I got my hands on 3 so my little ones could all experience the joy of unboxing their own as it’s super fun.
The fun doesn’t end when you take off the plastic wrapper though, oh no there is so much more excitement to come. Hidden within the blind bottle house is one of the cutest baby dolls you will ever see.
In addition you will also discover 6 fun accessories if you look behind the perforated compartment doors within the house. Gently open these out one by one and see what’s concealed behind each.
What will you find behind the doors?
I was about to pop with excitement when the children opened theirs. It felt like they were taking forever, in hind sight I should have got one for myself lol.
Eventually they managed to open their blind bottle and identified the Cry Baby Magic Tears they had.
Open up the bag to discover a little seat for baby.
In the side of the bottle are hidden all sorts of goodies which the children took great pleasure in discovering.
Each found various items including a bottle, a bow, a dummy and a chair.
They also found 2 personalised accessories unique to their doll. For those that are super lucky may find a gold accessory in special packs so keep an eye out!!!

You’ll also find a special collectors poster which will let little ones keep a track of the babies they have.
Fill the little bottle that you’ll find in the pack with water then feed it to your baby, squeeze baby’s head or tummy gently and it will cry.
Little man realised that if he gave the baby a good squeeze it would squirt out the water which of course he loved!
Aren’t they great!
What did the children think?
The kids were over the moon and thought these were a great idea. They have been enjoying playing with them and love that they can be used to squirt each other!
Where can you get them?
These great little toys can be found in Sainsbury’s, Tescos and Asda stores as well as Argos, Smyths and Amazon RRP £9.99 each.
Suitable for ages 3 and up.
You will find animated episodes featuring the various Cry Babies characters over at www.magictears.toys and the Cry Babies Magic Tears YouTube channel. These sound like great cartoons for little ones.
