WOW! PODS Review – Collect • Connect • Display

Collectables are everywhere this year. The ‘it’ toys to have. And will be for the foreseeable future.

Let’s forget about the torture that parents have had to go through with the Disney Ooshie collectables recently. The swapping, the trading, the selling, the fighting and that’s before we even mention the fact that everywhere ran out! It was crazy watching it all unfold.

Instead of reliving yet another horror of 2020, let’s jump to something fun… our WOW! PODS review.

What are WOW! PODS?

You are probably wondering what WOW! PODS are and why your kids will them. I’m confident in saying that not only will your children love them, adults will too.
In the initial launch of WOW! PODS, there are 14 exciting characters to collect. These include:

• Marvel’s Ironman, Groot, The Black Widow, the Hulk, Spiderman and Loki;
• Wizarding World’s Harry, Hermione, Snape, and Dobby; plus,
• DC’s Super Friends Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Joker.

With another 9 popular Disney characters, these include Disney Princess, Disney Classic, Disney Frozen and Disney Pixar.

So what are they? They are little hex-shaped pod with built-in UV lights that each have a character living inside. Each pod lights up by simply swiping your hand or activating the IR sensors as you walk past to bring your pods to life, the light reveals hidden images and makes your character pop. This lights automatically turns off after 30 seconds.

What you may not realise is that you can connect the pods together to create a fun pattern, design or even wall of illuminated characters.

AMS thoughts

These are so freaking cute! The kids absolutely them and because I’m a big kid at heart, I have one in my office. Between us, we have a mix of Marvel and DC characters – Black Widow, Groot (so damn adorable!), Wonder Woman and Superman.

• They are built well and look great on display.
• Recommended ages are 5-15 years old but if your child only wants to play with the figurines, this might not be the best option of collectable as the characters can’t be removed.
• The hidden messages when the pod lights up are cute.
• Batteries included.
• RRP $29.95 from independent toy stores.

    My 3 have created a fairy garden in the backyard. They love collecting fairies, gnomes, rocks and anything that is colourful or sparkly to add to the garden. They have put a Hulk and Batman figurine in the mix to help protect the fairies.
    The WOW pods look great lit up. We’d love to start a Marvel collection with Loki

    I collect Lego, I’m running out of room!
    But my daughter collects all things Harry Potter and would love Snape to start her WOW pod collection. 🙂

    We would love to win Snape – my eldest is Harry Potter obsessed and is just about to redo the “decor” in her room to have a feature wall for Harry Potter – so Snape would light up her life.

    I’d love the Joker DC Super Friends Pod for my own desk – so cute ?
    Well I’ve tried to collect all the supermarket collectable and I’m yet to get a full set. We also like to collect coins. You don’t need to worry about getting a set but it is fascinating to learn about the countries they come from, how old they are and the different designs on them. Granny and Poppy are even in on collecting for the kids too. The more the kids get, the richer they think they are (wishful thinking ?)

    My daughter has a huge collection of Disney Piglet. She sleeps with a lot of them too and has so many figurines on display.

    Would love the DC Super Friends Joker as she also collects him too.

    My sister and I collect the Pop figures for Marvel and Doctor Who. Our family also collect ooshies and all the cards and what not that Coles and Woolies have done.
    These little light up wonders would be perfect to expand our collectio!
