Planet Obo is an unusual cube shaped planet in a distant galaxy. Each side of the planet is very different. Desert Side is hot and covered with sand. Snow Side is cold and covered with snow. Ocean Side is all water. Tropical Side is humid and wild. Forest Side is covered with grass and giant trees. Mountain Side is mysterious.
Each Obo has a unique personality and distinct habits, features, and characteristics. Since each side of Planet Obo is so different, Obos develop body parts that help them live in their unique environments. Some of the Obos have body parts that give them special strengths and abilities!
Doesn’t that just peek your interest? I know it peeked mine and that’s why, when the opportunity to review these cool new eco friendly toys came along I jumped at it! We were sent three of the series 1 Obos, Munti, Fofo and Guba. My boys were so excited to play with these little guys! They immediately started swapping the parts to see what new creatures they could create! They came up with some pretty cute creations too!
My favorite part is that they are made of quite durable FSC certified paper, and recycled paperboard making each piece quite thick and eco friendly. Another HUGE plus is the extremely small amount of packaging, it took no more then three seconds to get the packaging off and have the toy ready for play! And when you have kids you know how frustrating packaging can be, especially when you have an excited child standing beside you waiting to play! My only caution would be that they aren’t suited to young children, my three year old is currently in this phase of chewing on everything and he chewed a few of the pieces 🙁 .
