If you haven’t seen a Zoobie Pet than you have been missing out on one of the best toys the stuffed animal market has seen in years.
These adorable stuffed animals perform triple duty. All of the Zoobie Pets come as a stuffed animal, and then turn into a pillow and a blanket.
We recently got Lencho the Lion to try out. Not only is fluffy guy cuddly, but he exceeded my expectations.
When my two year old first saw him, he screamed and then kissed his smushy face. Lencho is just the right size to be toted around the house and out to the mall.
It wasn’t until I opened him fully to watch TV, that I realized not only did the blanket inside come with a zipper, to make washing more efficient, but that it was really soft. Zoobies makes their blankets out of coral fleece, which is a Micro-plush material that is extremely soft, plump and warm to the touch.
I love that the lion’s face is made of microbeads. It makes him squishy and hugable.
This line of companions is highly recommended for traveling. Even with the blanket out of the animal, you child may still be able to roll up the remaining shell and use it as a pillow. The lion we tested may be too fluffy to use as a pillow, but many of the other animals in the product line would be perfect.
Each animal retails for $34.
The 2008 collection and a directory of retailers close to you are available at the official site www.zoobiepets.com.
*No Imitations accepted – Each animal has been tagged with the original Zoobies logo patch that appears on the ear and on the blanket.*
