If there's one thing kids LOVE, it's soft, cuddly stuffed animals! My children adore their pillow toys. Sophie sleeps with hers, and so does Kyle, my 11 year old. Even my husband loves stuffed animals and has one of his own that resides in our bed! Who doesn't love the soft feel and the snuggle factor of a great stuffed animal?
That's why when I first saw Zoobies, I knew I wanted to review them! Zoobies are a 3-in-1 animal friend that your children are sure to absolutely cherish for years to come! What makes Zoobies so special? (Other than the fact that they're so stinking adorable!) Unlike other popular animal toys, these can be transformed from furry friend to pillow to a plush blanket! That's right! These are multi-functional toys! Zoobies are a friendly looking animal, a Pillow, and tucked inside their bodies is a super soft blanket! Not one of those little 30" by 30" blankets either, Zoobies Blankets measure approximately 34" by 53"!
How does this transformation take place? There are two velcro tabs on the underside of the toy. When fastened, Zoobies look like a normal stuffed animal. But once you undo the velcro, Zoobies open up to be a super soft pillow! At the back side of the animal, there is a zipper that opens to allow you to take the warm, snuggle-worthy blanket out when needed. The animal stays attached to the blanket, but can be detached if desired. Just fold the blanket back up, stuff it inside, close the zipper, fold the pillow in half and attach the two velcro tabs to make it back into an adorable animal pal again! Easy, peasy!
I received Wyatt the Wolf for my review. I really wanted one of the monkeys,or the Very Hungry Caterpillar for Sophie and Xander, but my husband is a wolf fanatic and begged me to choose that one. Yes, he is a big kid, and this Zoobie pet belongs to him! He gave me the puppy dog eyes and pouty lips, so I couldn't really tell him no!
When we received our Zoobie, I was very impressed with the superior quality of the materials used to make this toy, as well as the attention to detail. Wyatt's fur is incredibly soft. Sophie loves rubbing her face all over his luxurious feeling pelt. It almost feels like REAL fur, only softer.The details in the face of this "pet" are also very intricate. The eyes are almost real looking, and the slight variations in the gray of his fur are very true to nature. This has a few blended shades of gray, just like a real wolf would! The head is also super cuddly, because it is filled with special microbeads that offer maximum squishability. And once you get your hands on a Zoobie, you'll want to squish it every chance you get! Zoobies are well known for their fun, whimsical appearance, and Wyatt the Wolf was no exception! Here are some photos of our newest companion, Wyatt the Wolf!
Isn't that the neatest thing ever? And Zoobies have a HUGE selection to choose from, too. There is certainly something guaranteed to make any child's eyes fill with joy upon receiving one of these special friends. They are also perfect for sleepovers! We really love Wyatt the Wolf. He has taken permanent residence on our sectional. When we watch television in the evenings, my husband loves to use this blanket to keep him warm. It is the perfect size for one adult to use as a comfy throw blanket.
I would definitely recommend Zoobies to all my mama friends out here. Your children are bound to be the envy of their friends when they get a Zoobie Pet! Not only are these wonderful, tag-a-long pals sure to delight any child, they also provide a comfortable, all-in-one solution for nap time!
