REVIEW: Heroes of Goo Jit Zu DC Collection
If your kids are lovers of DC Superheroes and Villains, you are going to love to check out our Review about the New Goo Jit Zu Stretchy and Squishy Superhero Collection.
The new DC range of Heroes of Goo Jit Zu toys have been launched by Character Toys and we have been lucky enough to have been sent some for our families to review in return for us sharing our honest thoughts with our readers.
Who are Goo Jit Zu DC Superheroes
They are double the fun as DC Superheroes and the Heroes of Goo Jit Zu have come together, to create a fab collection of stretchy, gooey and squishy Superhero figures for kids to enjoy.
Get ready to take on challenges, burst off on a new adventure at any minute and defeat evil to save the day.
These DC Hero’s have a unique goo filling with a different texture and feel, which make it even more fun when you’re playing with your favourite action heroes and best of all, we wouldn’t be parents if we didn’t highlight the added bonus that these figures allow your child to enjoy gooey slime playtime with no mess, as its all contained inside the superhero figure.
All the Different Goo Jit Zu DC Heroes Available
Newly launched is three different DC Hero Individual Packs that your kids can collect, including Batman, Superman and The Flash.
We have been sent the Batman figure who is super squishy and when you squeeze him hard enough, he will bulge out and mixed in with the slime inside him you will be able to see the little yellow bats that are floating about. Making it a mess free slime play option for your kids.
You can also enjoy twisting, folding, and stretching Batman and just like all the other DC Superheroes he can stretch up to three times his original size,
We have also been sent the Superman figure who is super stretchy with almost a soft memory foam like feeling to him when you squish him and just like all the other DC Superheroes he can stretch up to three times his original size.
Aside from these three individual hero packs you can get a Heroes of Goo Jit Zu DC Versus Pack, which has Batman and the Joker in it, so the kids can play out their very own superhero battles.
Benefits of Playing with Action Figures for Children
As everyone knows kids learn really well through play and we think that our kids engage more with play activities that they are interested in, such as superheroes. That’s why we think that in general Superheroes action figures are an important part of childhood which can offer some awesome benefits for kids.
Some of the benefits we have seen with our kids includes:
- Expanding their imagination as they give the action figures a voice and they develop their skills to act in role as a character.
- Builds their fine motor skills, as they have to hold the figures and moving them or make them pose into relevant positions.
- Growing their creativity levels as they come up with different storylines for the action figures to play through.
- Helps kids connect with others and develop their social skills as playing with superheroes is a fab ice breaker to letting little ones make new friends as it’s an equal level activity for them all. It can also really help them express who they are and what emotions they are feeling and help them deal with life’s stresses.
Where to Buy your own Goo Jit Zu DC Heroes

Individual Batman, Flash and Superman packs are on sale for £12.99 with the Joker and Batman Vs Pack on sale for £24.99 and these are all aimed at children aged 4 years and older.
Would we Recommend Heroes of Goo Jit Zu DC Collection to Your Family?
Absolutely, we would definitely recommend to check out these Hero of Goo Jit Zu figures to families who have members that are DC superheroes lovers.
The quality of these toys are really good, the kids really did test out the squeezing and stretching ability of these figures and they were really durable which gives you a good sense of value of money.
The size of the figures are perfect for little hands, the colours are vibrant and the feel of the figures are wicked, we haven’t felt anything quite like it before.
Oh, and the bonus is honestly no matter how much or how many times you stretch Superman he always goes back to his original size, just like new again…. Kids were ridiculously impressed by this and totally loved testing how far they could make him stretch, I think secretly they were hoping he would brake lol!.
