The Trendy New Toy that’s Wrecking Children’s Hair and Driving Parents Crazy


A popular new toy called Bunchems has turned out to be a huge pain for parents and their kids.


Bunchems are brightly colored balls the size of a quarter covered with soft, squishy spikes that interlock with each other to build any shape possible, like LEGOS.


The toy might sound fun, but parents throughout the country have taken to the web to warn the spongy little spheres are straight from the devil.


“Horrible, horrible, horrible toy for kids. I just spent the last TWO AND A HALF hours (absolutley, 100 percent not an exaggeration) attempting to remove 14 of these bastard balls out of my daughter’s hair,” Etan Benoit wrote in an Amazon review.


Each packet contains 370 Bunchems, an instruction manual and 36 accessories like eyes, sunglasses and hats.


Spin Master, the Canadian company that manufactures the toy, boasts on its site “the possibilities are limitless” with Bunchems and “clean up is a breeze.”


Spin Master recommends coating the hair surrounding Bunchems with conditioner or vegetable oil, then combing below the toy until the knots are untangled.
