Looking for toys that not only entertain but also teach your kids something valuable? Then Shoulder Buddies is the toy for you.
This cute little collectible toy is great for kids to play with and also great for them to learn something from.
Remember those cute little trolls that were the hype years ago? It was every kid’s favorite accessory. They would play with them, put them up on their shelves to adorn their room, and bring them with them wherever they went.
Even grown-ups found them cute and some had to have them placed on their desks or have key chains placed on their backpacks. They were just too adorable for anyone to pass up. Now, there’s a new hype: Shoulder Buddies.
But unlike those cute trolls, the Shoulder Buddies aren’t just nice little toys to collect and to keep. They have so much more for kids to enjoy.
Cute toys to collect and keep or trade off
The Shoulder Buddies have a lot of characters available. In their first collection there are 8 characters and the second collection has another set of 8 different characters. There’s even a limited edition, available only in their online store, of 4 characters that are just too cute.
Just like the cute trolls, these Shoulder Buddies are great collectible figures. Kids can collect them and display them in their room. Their rooms would really light up with these cute little things. They can also trade them with their friends.
It’s a great way to for them to foster friendships and also for them to meet new friends. When they have these cute little toys with them, other kids who own Shoulder Buddies would be sure to open up and start a conversation.
Stick them on anything and bring them with you
The Shoulder Buddies can go with you wherever you go. They are easy to bring along as they are small toys you can easily carry with you. They measure about 2 inches in width, 2 inches in height, and 2 inches in length. Their colorful hair can stand up to 5 inches.
The best thing about it though is its magnetic pad. Each Shoulder Buddy comes with a Magical Coin or a magnetic pad. This way can literally put your little buddy on your shoulder. Just put the magnetic pad under your shirt and the toy just above the part of your shirt where the pad is placed.
You can also place your Shoulder Buddies on your bag, on your hat, a headband made of cloth or even on your hair. These little buddies really hold in place.
Valuable life lessons to learn
The most special part about the Shoulder Buddies is that you can learn a different life lesson from each of them.
Each toy comes with a Smart Card where you can learn about the life lesson.
