It was Charlie who first introduced me to the game Slither.io after he saw his favourite YouTuber Dan TDN playing it. I downloaded it on my phone for him to play, but soon found that I was the one hooked by this game. Slither.io is a huge gaming phenomenon and YouTuber hit, 60% of British under 14 year olds have downloaded Slither.io and 124 million games are played a month in the UK – not all me, I promise!
We were offered the chance to try out the new Slither.io toy range that has just launched here in the UK, which includes collectible Slither.io
Slither.io blind bag collection includes collectable bendable slither creatures, including rare and ultra-rares (£3.99rrp)
Mystery mini Slither.io Squishies – adorable squishies that come in hexagonal pots (£3.99.)
Slither.io bendable 3-pack with two mystery slithers (£10.99rrp)
The 8” bendable Slither.io plush (£9.99rrp)
As bonafide unboxing fans, my kids were instantly drawn to the “mystery” slithers and were thrilled when they got the rainbow one who they inform me is a rare one. I personally love the American stars and stripes one; that is my snake of choice when playing.
Worldwide, the free-to-play browser and App Slither.io game is an enormous gaming phenomenon and YouTube influencers favourite with 12 billion worldwide game plays in the last six months alone! After playing it myself, I can see why it’s so popular as I love playing it. My currently record length is 113159 which I was very proud of. My husband now is desperately trying to beat me; we get rather competitive in our house!
I love how bright and colourful they are not to mention the instantly recognisable colours from Slither.io, I think they will be the must-have toys for legions of Slither.io fans. The range is all at a really affordable prices and will make superb stocking fillers and gifts for kids this Christmas. I have already spotted some of the blind bags which I think will definitely be unwrapped here on 25th December.
