My family have been fans of the Wild Kratts for years now. It’s such a great show for kids, and to be honest it’s way easier to watch as a parent than some of the other kid programming on the market today. I like that my kids are learning facts about animals while they are being entertained.
Well fellow fans, now there is a new Wild Kratts Toy Collection from Wicked Cool Toys featuring collectable action figures, talking plush, power suits and more. Kids everywhere can now star in their own animal-powered adventures – just like Chris and Martin Kratt with toys available at Toys ‘R’ Us stores nationwide and on toysrus.com.
The new toy assortment includes:
- Wild Kratts Creature Power Suit Sets ($19.99) Imagine having your very own Creature Power Suit. Available in either blue or green, each set includes a special vest and pair of gloves to outfit kids for role-play fun. Collectible creature power discs, which come with a variety of new Wild Kratts products, can be inserted into the center of the vest to ‘Activate Creature Power’ play.
- Wild Kratts Talking Plush Assortment ($17.99) Adorable soft plush animals featuring Chris’ and Martin’s signature phrases from the show.

- Wild Kratts Creaturepod Projector Set Assortment ($7.99) Featuring 20 different images, kids can create endless wildlife adventures with this new projector set. Available in two varieties, green for Chris and blue for Martin – comes equipped with an adjustable black Velcro wrist strap so young explorers can bring the adventure along with them.
We recently received two figure sets – one called Fliers and the other Swimmers. The Swimmers set has one Kratt brother dressed as a turtle and three other animal figures and their accompanying power discs. The flier has a Kratt brother dressed as a falcon and three other flying animal figures with their likenesses on power discs. My kids thought all of the figures were awesome. They have been playing “Wild Kratts” with the Chris and Martin figures and animals for days now. I’m not a fan of small collectable style accessories since I don’t like the clutter and they don’t really do anything, but the collectable power discs are one my my son’s favorite features of the set. Simply round plastic discs with an outlined picture of the animals on each – he sorts them, lays them out and then stores them. I guess they like to pretend they have real super powers like on the show. I guess as long as he really plays with them I don’t mind cleaning them up The Creature Power Suit sets will certainly be on our Christmas gift list!
Additionally they tucked a Wild Kratt mini purple hippo plush into our package of review items. My two year old is smitten – hippo is now his go-to companion for car rides.
