Num Noms are miniature characters that bring food to life and smell so delicious: Inspired by sweet foods and flavours, such as cupcakes and ice-cream. Already a huge success in the USA Num Noms, the scented food related collectibles appear in the form of mini lip glosses and motorised characters, and have now hit Tesco shelves here in the UK. They can be sniffed and snacked – then race the motorised Noms and enjoy delicious flavour lip balms. Each Num Nom is individually scented for a recipe for mischief.
Types of Num Noms to Collect
Collect them all with the many different flavours, scents, colours, types – the combinations are endless. The Num is the soft, squishy characters – which are the outer and can be stacked high. The Nom is the hard-shelled character, coming in either a motorised or lip-balm format. There are Cupcake Nums (such as Nilla Cream, Choco Nana, Pinkie Lemonade, and Orange Swirl); Special Edition Cupcake Nums (Minty Swirl, Candie Puffs, Red Velvety, Betty B-Day and Choco Berry); Ice Cream Nums (such as Lulu Licorice, Nilla Twirl, Nana Berry, Orange Sherbet, Strawberry Sprinkles, Bailey Bubblegum and Minty Chip); Special Edition Ice Cream Nums (Connie Confetti), Neo Trio and Orange Cream), Motorized Noms (such as Banana Go-Go, Lemony Go-Go, Tropical Go-Go, Strawberry Go-Go, Cherry Go-Go, and Choco Go-Go) and Special Edition Motorized Noms (Bubbly Go-Go and Nilla Go-Go); and Lipgloss Noms (such as Nilla Gloss-Up, Nana Gloss-Up, Pina Gloss-Up, Orange Gloss-Up, Peachy Gloss-Up and Cherry Gloss-Up). Then combine them to make the perfect recipe for mischief – with over 1,000 mix and match combinations.
To turn the Motorized Nom on and off simply press the bow on top of its head. Batteries can be replaced by using a Phillips screwdriver (not included) and a 1.5V AG13 (LR44) alkaline battery (spares not included). They move in a random seeming direction and do turn.

Thoughts on Num Noms Series 1
Num Noms make a great collectible. They are fun and varied. I like how you can enjoy just one pack, or try to collect them all. Straight forward and easy to use. They are very scented and can smell them as soon as you walk in the room – also can have fun trying to identify them by smell. Stackable means they are fairly easy to store. A nice selection of colours and made of a good quality material. My only real grumble is that each of the 3 packs I received all came with the same sheets, which meant the same recipes – as I only had 1 cup there was only one recipe I could make. I would have liked to have seen different recipe sheets provided in the different packs – but may be that is because they came from the same batch.
Suitable for children ages 5 and over.
