If you like toys that encourage creative and open ended play, don’t require batteries, and will keep the kids entertained for ages, you’ll love Bunchems!
Emma told me about Bunchems a while ago after seeing them on TV, so when we were asked to try them out for ourselves and share our creative experience, we both jumped at the chance to have a bit of fun together.
Originally inspired by burrs, nature’s clever way of spreading seeds, these colourful plastic spheres have little hooks on them which magically stick together to build and create anything you can imagine.
They combine construction with craft, and the best thing is, they can be reused over and over, and are super easy to clean up.
They have an interesting texture which is great for sensory play activities, and are perfect for developing fine motor control. They stick together but are not sticky.

Emma absolutely loves them. This kid is easily distracted and often tends to lose interest quite quickly with craft activities, but I can honestly say she’s enjoyed playing with these for hours on end.
Watch how much fun we had creating our Bunchems critters, they come with lots of fun add on pieces, like eyes, hats and wacky moustaches, which inspired her to create some fun monster characters. The zanier, the better. The Monster Challenge was on!
Emma also explains how Bunchems work, this kid needs her own TV show!
I’ve got to tell you we had so much fun making this video, I really need to make an out-takes reel, Emma is such a clown.
Some tips for playing with Bunchems:
Tie long hair back to avoid tangling.
Play on a table or hard surface, they may stick to carpet and pick up fluff.
