Style up a Shmoozee! Shmoozees are plush toys that are best described as a nice gremlin meets TY. They have glow in the dark ears and eyes, and the ears are plastic, with holes in them, so you can add earring-like collectible charms. Right now, there are six different colors and patterns retailing at $19.99, and you can have the name for your shmoozee auto-generated on the website. There are also ways you can Shmoozee style and have virtual play making it a collectible kind of toy.
Right now, Shmoozee is having a contest where they are encouraging kid fans (or grown-up fans) to make videos with their Shmoozee to show the coolness, play and ‘rad factor. You have until the end of June to submit an entry for a ‘shmance’ to win cool prizes. The bummer part is that these are not sold in stores. They are only sold online right now.
I was given some Shmoozees with which to create my own compensated video, but I enlisted my 3 year old to help. He wanted to pull the Shmoozees around in his baby sister’s push-toy, and then wanted to have them ride around his fire truck. So he pulled them around using some string and I did the video taping. Later that day, when I went to put the video together, I found another Shmoozee house fan. Can you guess who it was? Looks like you’ll just have to watch this Shmoozee video to see!

They are ear-isistible. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist…)
