OK, I admit it, I never took any interest in the Moshi Monsters. Until I began to be constantly bombarded by the kids with request for toys, cards, and about a million other things that they “had” to have. By the sounds of it they were looking for Daddy to empty out his bank account for them! We settled though, a few Moshi Monsters toys each and that was it. Daddy works for a living and can’t be spending it all on collectibles. Luckily the Moshi Monsters figures and toys are not going to break the bank, as long as you keep control and just pick one or two. If you don’t know what these characters are really, then I will cover it in detail in this article, if you just want to buy some cheap Moshi Monsters toys for sale online then see my recommended resource:
Moshi Monsters Moshling Toys
Let’s take a look at the toys and then at what the fuss is actually all about. Firstly I will say that if your children are interested in these characters then they are certainly not alone. What started out as a digital phenomenon has spread to the toy world, where my interests lie. But the online games have attracted millions and millions of children so far and it seems to be getting bigger all the time.
The toys are known as Moshi Monsters Moshlings toys and come in a nice wide range. Too wide if you ask the main who has to pull out his wallet!
What Are We Buying?
The toys are actually very simple really. Just a little character from the huge series of characters that is now over 50 million online. Don’t worry there are not that many toys to buy. We can buy these in single packs or packs of 2, 3 or 5. Plus there are specials in Gold tins and all manner of other options. Plus Plush toys, trading cards, pretty much everything you can think of from a franchise.
But it is the simple little toys themselves that the kids seem to really want. Probably because they remind them of the online world so much. In many packs you get a special code that can be used online to give your character something extra, it is all a little over my head if I am honest.

As you can see, these are pretty basic toys really, they aren’t really going to win any awards, but they are cute and fuin for the kids.
Moshi Monsters Toys Price
This is the real saving grace, they are very cheap to buy. They are actually the cheapest toys of its type I have come across. A 3 pack with a code for online shenanigans is well under the ten dollar mark, well under, so they are a good cheap buy as long as you stick to just a purchase or two.
Worth The Money Though?
To be honest they are very simple little things. But the kids love characters from their favorite cartoons, movies and Online games to for that reason alone they love them. If they were expensive I would not recommend them, but for a few bucks you can’t really go wrong.
What Are Moshi Monsters
Well, this is where I get a little confused myself. It is all based around an online virtual world where they kids get to make their own monsters. And then the children are able to take on all kinds of challenges within the Moshi Monsters world called Monstro City, where they earn “Rox” which is the virtual currency. The kids can go on all kinds of weird missions, take part in educational puzzles and more.
Parents can read more about it at the Moshi Monsters Website. The good thing about this world is that it seems to be very heavily policed and parents can find more information on child safety and the guidelines on the Mishi website.
I can’t really get into these virtual games, but it seems very safe, actually quite educational, and it is certainly something that is not going to go away any time soon. Millions upn millions of children now play this game, and interact with their virtual Moshi’s daily, so a toy or two for a few dollars is fine by me. Just don’t get carried away and buy too many, there are an awful lot of things that you could end up buying.
