Product Review: Romper Zombies

The new Romper Zombie dolls are not quite                                                    BeFunky_download (3).png
what you would expect for a new range of
kids dolls. Looking like some sort of cross
between 28 Days Later and the Cabbage Patch
Kids, they manage to somehow be cute and
repulsive at the same time. There will be
24 zombies and 6 zombie hunters to make up
the whole collection.These little 8 inch
resin figures are children that have acidently
become zombies. With each character being named
alphabetically, the first one being Andie
Anderson. The collection has a detailed story
behind the figures including how each child
became a zombie. There are currently four
figures to see but plans for the rest are underway.

How Much?

These Romper Zombies are set to retail at around $34.99.

Who would buy these Romper Zombies?

Mainly aimed at young children, especially boys around 8+, these dolls have instead gathered fans from people of all ages. The amazing attention to detail has had everyone amazed. From the brains on Andie Anderson, to the heart little Bobbie Blayblok is carrying around. These hard resin dolls are even robust making them great for younger kids who can acidently break other collectable toys.

Things we like about the Romper Zombies.

As mentioned before the attention to detail on these little Romper Zombies is outstanding. The paint work is truly brilliant from their clothing, to the details work on the zombie skin, really makes them look like the un-dead. The individual characters also have their own little background stories. They also have articulated arms waists and sometimes necks.

Things we did not like the Romper Zombies.

It’s hard to find a fault with these little zombies however the idea of giving zombies to the kids may not appeal to some parents. Some younger children may also be put off by finding them a little scary and gruesome.

Guarantee

As the Romper Zombies are aimed at children as a toy it’s unlikely that they will come with a guarantee unless there is a fault on them.

Are the Romper Zombies worth the money?

Some people may be thinking that $34.99 for an action doll type of toy may be a bit steep but these little guys come with a few extras. There are plans for an online game about the Romper Zombies. When you purchase a doll you’ll get what looks to be a phone number but is actually a code you have to break to access the game and to determine who the zombies will attack.

Where can I buy the Romper Zombies?

So far four of the zombies are available to buy from their website, the first three zombies and Georgie Gory- the first of the zombie hunters. They plan to release the remaining 20, one at a time, over the next year or so. They’ll be available on their website and at major toy stores as and when they’re are released.

More customer reviews for Romper Zombies.

It’s safe to say that these little zombies are getting good reviews. People seem to like how the have managed to keep these unique zombies almost looking cute. As well as the fact that it has the tie-in of the online game.“The sculpting is incredibly tight and well-finished, while the paint job is diverse and anything but lazy. Little creative touches like a heart inside a baseball glove, intricately weaved curly hair, or the buttons on a shirt make these figures live up to high expectations.”
