The Li’l Woodzeez have some new villagers in the form of bobblehead figures. At first, I wasn’t sure if I would collect these characters, but, as flocked animal friends usually do, they completely won me over.
The bobblehead characters are called “Bobbleez” and are sold in a few different size sets. I started with a three figure set.
The packaging lists all 28 Series 3 collectible Bobbleez characters. Most are common, but others are rare (some rares are rarer than others) and there is a duck that comes with a special golden acorn that can be redeemed for a special prize. One of the rare figures glows in the dark.
As far as I can tell, each figure is a brother or sister and there are no adult or baby sized bobbleheads.
I chose this package because it had Tab Tidyshine and Oodles Whooswho, who are both new members of families that I already have. Unlike the non-bobblehead Woodzeez, these characters have plastic, non-removable clothing. Their heads, arms, and feet are flocked. Both figures have the same cute, smiley Woodzeez faces, though their bodies are not quite asround as other Woodzeez figures. Tab (the turtle) had some issues with falling over backwards because the shells seem to make turtles a little wobbly. They are just as lovable as the regular Woodzeez.
Each package comes with one or more acorn containers. There is another figure hidden inside each acorn.
My mystery figure is Kala Canberra! She is not a rare, but I am happy to have gotten her, as I’ve recently added the rest of her family to my collection.
My initial concern about the bobbleheads was that they would not be visually compatible with the rest of their families. However, that is not at all an issue. Here’s a photo of the Whooswhoos with their newest member, Oodles. She is bigger than the baby, but a little smaller than the brother. Her neck is a bit different (to allow for bobbling), but she fits in perfectly with the rest of the owls.
Though the combined plastic clothing and torso situation isn’t really my favorite thing, I really like these new characters. Like all Woodzeezs products, they are very inexpensive and it’s fun to add new characters to the existing families. And, of course, they are just as cute and friendly as the non-bobbling Woodzeez. I look forward to building my collection, though it won’t be nearly as extensive as my Sylvanians.
