Love Sonny Angels? Here are other toys to get for your inner child 

by Joyce Remo

Filipinos are undeniably obsessed with collecting toys. This is evident from their bulk collections of items that range from the giant bobbleheads Funko Pops with oversized eyes to the fan-favorite Pokemon cards.

This is also why it didn’t come as a surprise when many Filipinos, especially Generation Zs and younger Millennials, couldn’t wait to get their hands on Sonny Angels when they were first released in the country.

Because of their cuteness and popularity, these toys that are also called “little boyfriends” get sold out almost instantly, thanks to their dedicated patrons.

While waiting for Sonny Angels to be restocked in your local toy shops, here are four other figurines you can add to your adorable toy collection.

These tiny, bald, and genderless figurines called Smiskis are curious little creatures who mimic people’s daily lives.

Smiskis come in a series of designs where they are posed while doing certain actions related to various activities and interests, including exercise, dressing, work, museums, cheering, yoga, being in bed, and having a bath. 

These glow in the dark collectibles can be a charming room decoration and are said to bring joy and luck to their surroundings.


so excited to add more of the exercise series to my collection, thanks to @ailene ´・ᴗ・` ♡ for fueling my addiction 🫶🏽 #smiski #blindbox #smiskifigures #smiskiusa #smiskicollection #blindboxdisplaycase
