Annoying Orange Talking Toys Review

We were recently sent some Annoying Orange products to review and I can honestly say they are hilarious and pretty much guaranteed to make kids and adults alike laugh out loud with their amusing phrases and well, annoying sounds.

Annoying Orange Product range
The Annoying Orange products we received.
For those not familiar with Annoying Orange, it is the most watched web comedy series on YouTube for over 2 years, with 1.4 billion views and over 11 million Facebook fans. Now a cult classic in the US on Cartoon Network, and coming to UK TV this year, Annoying Orange features a cast of characters including; Annoying Orange, Pear, Marshmallow, Passion Fruit, Midget Apple, Grapefruit, Grandpa Lemon and Liam the Leprechaun all sharing the same annoying humour.

The product range includes ‘Fresh Squeezed’ talking clip-ons that are super soft and with a gentle squeeze fans will instantly recognise the annoying sounds from their favourite characters.There are four ‘Fresh Squeezed’ talking clip-ons to collect including Annoying Orange, Pear, Midget Apple and Marshmallow. We received Midget Apple which Ben has become quite attached to and I have to admit this little red apple has been responsible for a lot of laughs in our house.

We also received one of the ‘Kitchen Crew’ Talking Clip-ons which are great for putting on a school bag or even your car keys, just be careful though as they might suddenly start shouting some of their well-known annoying puns if accidentally pressed while tucked in your pocket or bag (yes, it has happened as I stood in line at the supermarket with it on my key ring). There are four Orange styles, Pear, Midget Apple, Grandpa Lemon, Marshmallow and Passion Fruit available to collect in this range.

I love the Annoying Orange ‘Kitchen Crew’ collectables, which are textured little figures with lots of detail. We were sent the Pear who now takes pride of place in our fruit bowl alongside the clementines, apples and whatever else can be found there. As silly as it may sound, it amuses me every time I go to grab a piece of fruit and I can't resist making him talk. You can collect all the orange styles and the rest of the talking Kitchen Crew: Pear, Midget Apple, Marshmallow, Grandpa Lemon and Grapefruit in this range.

Finally, there is also a talking plush range available. With a quick squeeze, the soft characters say funny jokes, puns and classic phrases from the Annoying Orange series. My husband took quite a shine to the plush Annoying Orange we were sent and it somehow wound up in his office where I have been assured it is the source of much amusement (and annoyance) amongst his colleagues.
