Back to School With Whiffer Sniffers – The Scented Backpack Clip
My kids start back to school this week, and they have been bemoaning the fact that their summer vacation flew by way too fast. I have to agree with them that the last few months actually did go by too quickly. There was no complaining though when they recently found out they were getting to host a back to school party and tell all their friends about Whiffer Sniffers. Now that their backpacks are sporting these cool scented, plush characters I think they are more excited for the first day of school to arrive so they can head back and show off these new “toys.”
Whiffer Sniffers are a collectible line of cute, scented plush characters with personality and charm that are taking kids by storm. Whiffer Sniffers are like modern day scratch n’ sniff stickers. The frequent introductions, character retirements, and the special rare versions are what makes collecting these backpack clips so much fun! Around twenty new Whiffer Swiffers are released every year, and almost the same number retire as well.
These plush huggable toys can be clipped on backpacks, overnight bag, book bag, lunch box or even in lockers or anywhere you want to smell the delicious scents and where you can share a whiff with your friends. Whiffer Sniffers are amazingly scented, and each character’s scent matches their appearance. The popcorn smells like popcorn! The peach smells like a peach! The chili pepper smells like a chili pepper! The fragrances are produced in the United States and will last for at least a year.
I love how all these characters are so creatively named, with names like Mikey Milkshake, Howie Rolls, Ivana Pucker-Up, Milton Melon, Jimmy Smore and Sonny Shine. Each character has its own unique story. My kids enjoy spending time reading all the bios found at WhifferSniffers.com. My daughter fell in love with Slippery Sam and enjoyed finding out that he is a salesman who has never met a stranger and that he sells slip and slides.
Part of the fun in collecting Whiffer Sniffers is the hunt for new introductions, retired characters and special limited editions. There are even Mystery Packs, and some of these contain a super rare “Gold Bag”. If you open a pack and find the gold foil, then you’ve struck gold!
