This month Whiffer Sniffers made their Canadian debut at Toys”R”Us and here at the Barnes house, we were lucky enough to be sent (scent?) a couple to check out.

What did the little ones think?
Evey pounced on ‘Chip’ the cute little chocolate chip clip straight away and she likes to wear him on the belt loop of her jeans. Evey’s explanation for this is – she can have him with her all of the time, even when she’s not carrying a bag or a lunch box.
Visitors to the house have to smell chip and although most are reluctant at first, everyone, without fail, says how lovely he smells and are always surprised at how realistic the super tasty chocolate scent is. The only trouble with the smell of Chip is that he makes me crave chocolate!
Meanwhile, Gabe got hold of Adam Apple, the full-size snuggly Whiffer Sniffer that smells just like a big bag full of fresh apples. Adam now resides on Gabes bed and must be there before the night light goes on or else we have to hunt around the house for him. Fortunately, when you loose a Whiffer Sniffer you can find it again just by wondering around the house sniffing!
I was worried the smell from the Whiffer Sniffers would be overwhelming and the scent is quite strong when you first take it out of the packaging. However, after a couple of hours, it seems to stabilise and becomes a pleasant background smell you don’t really notice – unless you put your nose to the Whiffer Sniffer and take in a good lung full!
They are collectible and swappable and are big enough not to get lost easily – which is a huge bonus in our home. I’d be happy to see either of our little kiddos choose more of these.
