Review: October Toys- Gwins




 Disclosure: I received a free product in exchange for this review.

 For my review I received a Gwin. A Gwin named Jebus. And we had a blast, yay!!

I was so excited when I received my Gwin! "The Gwin is a curious creature based on Tux, created by Larry Ewing & The GIMP. Gwins spend most of their time eating, sleeping, and hoarding treasure. They often form "armies" to protect their amassed riches. Now is your chance to build your own Gwin Army to guard your prized possessions! "

I've always loved collecting things. When I was little I always collected bouncy balls. Why? I just took an interest in them. There are so many different colors and designs. The Gwin is the same thing, only each one is a piece of art and did I mention; there super cute! There are only select quantities of each Gwin. For example there are only 400 of each design ever made for both series 1 and 2. And then there are only 200 of  each Gwin in series 3; So these are pretty collectible.

Any little kid would treasure a Gwin! There cute and even if they didn't save and collect them, they'd still have a blast playing with them! Christmas is right around the corner, so if your looking for something truly unique then look into October Toys. Beside the Gwins, October Toys have some other great toys like the Posiez. 
This is Lyllionia


Isn't she adorable?
 
Anyways,
Back to the Gwins!
Here are a few of my absolute favorites:
The Snack Time Gwin! (Aww wormy!)
and Rubber D.
And I wasn't going to do another but I LOVE the Mini Gwin! How could you say no?! Look - He's about as big as a quarter, aww! And seriously, how could you say no for only $2.00?


They also have a MegaGwin which is super cute!
 
Ohh! So like I was telling you before - I received Jebus. He is super cute! My rat Little Luis and Jebus are best friends now :)!
Heres Little Luis and Jebus telling jokes.
Here they are telling secrets:

and this was when the fun stopped! Jebus smacked Little Luis! (Not really, Little Luis was just turning his head and I captured the cutest picture! : D .)
 
 
So as you can see, even an adult and a rat can have fun with a Gwin! :)

I love my Gwin Jebus - he is so adorable and I will definitely be adding to my collection!

Whats your favorite Gwin?
