Pinypon, the Interchangeable New Miniature World for Kids! {Review & Giveaway}

Pinypon logo
While my daughters seem to be increasingly interested in technology and just about all devices and gadgets, I've been happy to see that it doesn't mean they shy away from the creative, imaginative possibilities that come with classic, traditional toys.

After all, no matter how far computers and phones are able to come, there's just something about playing with blocks, dolls, cars, pretend food and more that can't be replicated.

And, when it comes to those dolls, I don't think that there's one that my girls have met that they haven't loved. They play with the larger, somewhat-realistic baby dolls, dressing them, changing their diapers and putting them down for naps. They play with the Barbies, putting them through various adventures that typically end up with one tiny missing shoe. And, as of recently, they play (utterly engrossed) in the miniature world of Pinypon by Famosa.

Pinypon dolls

A leading European toy company that has been manufacturing toys for over 50 years, Famosa has long been known for creating high-quality dolls with engaging and unique features.

But while Famosa may not have previously been a common household name here in the U.S., now that they have debuted their Pinypon collection, a colorful line of mini, interchangeable friends, get ready to hear about not much else this holiday season.

Around here, Little Sister B had been introduced to Pinypon at a friend's house (and was already obsessed), so the day that the Pinypon Ski Lodge and Pinypon Car & Tow arrived, she was literally jumping up and down clapping in joy to see them!

Pinypon review

Perfect for the winter weather that has arrived here in the Midwest, we began by pulling the pieces of the Ski Lodge out of the box so that we could get right to work making a fun place for our Pinypon friends to ice skate, ski, ride a snow mobile, build a snowman and more.

Although I was initially slightly overwhelmed at the number of tiny parts that this set includes...

Pinypon ski lodge pieces

...I found that the illustrated assembly instructions Famosa included made it easy to follow along and pop pieces into place and place stickers in their locations.

It did end up taking a bit of time to get every last little piece into place, but that just meant that when the Ski Lodge was finally complete, the girls were even more excited to examine all of the adorable aspects!

Pinypon Ski Lodge

While toys often include cute details, Famosa takes things entirely to the next level with the amount of detail that they included in this Ski Lodge, all of the accessories, the three Pinypon characters themselves and even their little dog.

The ski lift, ski slope, tiny snow gear, working doors and drawers, decorations for the tree and snowman... I'm certain that every time we have looked at this set that we have found new and adorable touches that we hadn't noticed before!

Pinypon Ski Lodge review

And if allowing your Pinypon friends to ski, sled or snowboard down the slope isn't enough fun, the Ski Lodge also comes with an ice skating rink that holds actual ice! Simply add water and (carefully) place in the freezer and voilà!

I'm not sure that my kids have ever been so excited about ice before they had their own miniature ice rink!

Plus, along with the endless entertainment of the Ski Lodge itself, the addition of the Pinypon Car & Tow has been just right for cross country travels for friends to come and go for their winter adventures.

The girls have loved the storage in and on the tow and trunk and the way that the Pinypon character can hop right in and hit the road with this great little vehicle!

With all of the Pinypon figures, pieces and accessories, my girls already had all of the tools they needed for endless imaginative play... but then these dolls are even more fun because you can mix and match everything!

The clothing, accessories, hairstyles and even the faces can all be swapped from one character to the next by easily pulling them apart or turning the face around to the other side to create an entirely new persona. How cool is that?!

Pinypon mix and match dolls

Whether Pinypon is a familiar name in your household or this is the first that you've been introduced to this miniature world, if you have a young girl in your life (4+) that enjoys dolls, I can almost guarantee that she'll be thrilled with all of the fun Pinypon options available.

Each of these dolls and play sets are cute, innovative and portable while inspiring creativity and imagination all winter long and beyond!

Visit Pinypon.com to find out more about this miniature mix and match world and be sure to connect with them on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube so that you won't miss new additions, fun information and more. The Pinypon Ski Lodge retails for $39.99 and is available at Toys 'R Us while the Pinypon Car & Tow retails for $12.99 from Kmart or Toys 'R Us.

Plus, thanks to the generosity of Famosa, one person will soon be able to immerse the girl in their life in smaller or larger dolls as well, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of Pinypon Snow Ski Lodge, Pinypon Snow Adventure Car & Tow or Nenuco Sleep With Me Baby Doll & Cradle from Famosa!

Find out more about this baby doll in my Nenuco review - we love it!


A big thank you to Famosa for providing a Ski Lodge and Snow Cars for me to review as well as the choice of product for one lucky giveaway winner. The opinions shared are my own and honest and if you really need to see more, click here to see how I roll.
