Do you remember Stretch Armstrong and his band of characters from your childhood? I know I do and it used to be so much fun with my sister and I holding one arm and leg each and running in opposite directions as far as we could. Well, now Alyssa, Lily and Rowan can do the exact same thing but with new, cool characters.
First of all we got Stretch X-Ray which as you can see from the pictures is exactly what he says on the tin. He is a pretty gruesome see through figurine who looks like he’s got some anger issues. Due to his translucent body which is a yellow/gold colour you can actually see some of his internal organs including the the intestines and the lungs making this gruesome villain super cool. He has a soft squishy texture and is super stretchy… I was amazed at how far he could stretch!! He’s actually a vintage figurine that’s been brought back so you know the figurine fans are going to love this one!
Secondly we got sent Vac Man which was both Alyssa and I’s favourite out of the two. This guy is a little different to the normal stretching because he can be stretch or not. When his head is flush to his body, he is soft and squidgy and kind of like a stress ball really which is quite fitting given his face. However, if you pull his head up, it pumps his body up and removes the air (hence being called “VAC” man) and he goes rock solid and all his muscles become very defined and then you can stretch him and pull him. To return him to his calmer self you have to press the button on the top of his head and wind his neck back in – think the Hulk but in red!
