Tokidoki Blind Bag Figurines

Came across these blind bag figurines by Tokidoki at Claire's during my holiday shopping last month. They are $4/ea, but you can get them for a bit less if there is a store promotion. It was buy one, get one 50% off. The gift I had to get was the most expensive, so the three figures -- math equation done in head -- worked out to be $8 total. Not a bad price. I probably would have passed on buying any if there wasn't a sale happening.

One of the setbacks with this series is that not all of them can stand on their own. Total bummer! I know these are inexpensive, but I think they should be able to stand if they are sold as figurines. If they can't stand, they should be saved for keychains -- or including a little platform would have been nice. The paint job is quite good with their cheap retail price.

I still say give this series a try. It's easy to figure out which bags have Unicorno. Just feel for the shape with the bag. Check out my video below for more on these figurines by Tokidoki. Enjoy! :)
