The Hottest Unboxing Toy Of The Year--Crate Creatures Surprise Blowout--Is Still In Stock

Unboxing is huge—kids love to watch the unboxing YouTubers like Ryan Toys for hours. Just the simple act of opening a toy is enthralling for kids of all age, especially if what’s inside is a surprise. And thus the hysteria over the new Crate Creatures Surprise Blowout toy.

The toy was just released and is already completely sold out at Target!

So, what exactly is a Crate Creature, and why are they so popular?

The tag line is “What’s in the crate? You’ll have to wait!” When you buy the toy, all you can see is a tongue sticking through the bars. When you pull the tongue it makes beastly noises like grunts (yes, kids LOVE this). You then break the lock using a toy crowbar to unbox your “new best friend.” Once opened, the Creature does all sorts of things including voice recording (it repeats what you say in a gnarly monster voice!). Hold it upside down and it screams and farts. To the delight of your children, it makes 45 beastly sounds, like snoring and more. Overall, it’s a pretty silly toy with absolutely no educational value. Hence why kids LOVE them.

If you were wondering what toy is the L.O.L. Surprise of 2018, it’s this (in fact, it’s made by the same company, MGA).

There are three new Creatures launching for Holiday 2018 that are “bigger and grosser,”called Surprise Blowout. The characters are Croak, Nanners and Guano. These retail for $79.99 instead of $39.99 and come just in time for holiday. On MGA’s website, it says that the Surprise Blowouts launch November 26, but we found them available–and already sold out!–at select retailers.

If you’re wondering where to buy them, Jet, Amazon and Wal-Mart still have the Surprise Blowout Nanners, even though Target is out.
