We all express ourselves with emoticons these days. In fact I sometimes see that my daughter uses more emoticons than words in her messages. In keeping with this trend, The Emoji Movie has been released and stars different emoticons.
We received these figures from The Emoji Movie to review and the children were quite taken with them.
The figures are light up figures and are perfect for a desk or a shelf in the kids’ room. In fact, I probably could do with a Gene on my work desk.
We were sent Jailbreak and Gene.
Jailbreak is one of the characters from The Emoji Movie. She used to be a princess but she ran away from Textopolis. Her goal is to break free, past the firewall so she can live in the cloud with no worries.
Gene lives in Textopolis and has a range of emotions. He lives in a boy called Alex’s phone and is almost about to be deleted. He has to outwit the bot and finally learns to embrace himself for what he is.
The Jailbreak action figure has purple hair that lights up when you lift her left arm. She has big eyes and a slight smirk. She wears a beanie.
Gene is obviously yellow in colour much like the emoticons we use so often. His mouth lights up when you lift his left arm.
The figures are great for imaginative play but more so for adding to a collection. The come with a base so they can stand with ease. They are 8 inches tall.
The children enjoyed trying them out and making them light up. They have kept them as part of their toy collection.
Also available is Poop from the film.
The Emoji Movie Light Up Figures are aimed at children 3+. Priced at £14.99, they are available at all major toy retailers.
