Wholesale Keychain Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
I received the neatest keychain from Wholesale Keychain to review, but first I want to tell you how neat this company is. They have keychains for literally everyone--everything from digital photo keychains to Disney keychains to playable game keychains--and they're not particularly expensive either. They also have sport keychains, automotive keychains, and honestly any kind of keychain you can possibly think up. I was actually pretty amazed at the variety and quality of the keychains available.
My Take
We received the Candy Land game carabiner keychain pictured above. It's an actual mini version of the Candy Land game with two game pieces and eight cards. You could technically play a full game with the cards available, but I think your eyes might get tired because the board is very, very small. The game pieces that you move around the board are magnetic, so they won't spontaneously fall off of the board, but they are a bit big for the size of the squares, so you need to be careful that you remember which square you're on. The pieces and cards fit into a neat little compartment inside the keychain, and when the gameboard is closed you cannot open the compartment. So awesome because I don't have to worry about the compartment door opening and pouring pieces all over the car while I'm driving.

I think that it's a fantastic idea to have a game on a keychain, but I believe this one might be too difficult to realistically have kids play while waiting somewhere without losing cards and pieces. Then again, I'm not a kid and don't have the patience to play with something so small, whereas a child might think this is the coolest thing ever and play with it for hours. :-) Obviously, because it is so small, you don't want a child under 3 or 4 playing with it. But then again, how many kids under 3 do you know who can play Candy Land?

Pros:
  • Kids can play the game while waiting anywhere, and it could potentially keep them occupied for long periods of time.
  • The game is fully playable by two players with the enclosed pieces and cards.
  • The game pieces and board are magnetic, so pieces won't fall off of the board.
  • The pieces and cards are stored in a compartment within the keychain that will not open spontaneously.
Cons:
  • The game is quite small, so adults might have a difficult time playing.
  • The small pieces and cards can get lost quite easily when kids are playing the game, and you can't replace them once they're gone.
  • The keychain is a bit cumbersome to have on your keyring, but you could always keep it in a purse unattached.
Cost: You can buy the Candy Land keychain for $6.99. ($$$)

Overall: We give Wholesale Keychain an 8.5/10!
