Kids love stuffed animals… and let’s be honest – mom’s hate them. The first one, two, maybe even three are cute and soon your house is over run by fluffy bears, bunnies, monkeys, and who knows what else and you just want to scream! And you think what if there was a stuffed animal that actually served a purpose? But wait! There is! And that is why I want to tell you about Zoobies.
Zoobies was created with mom in mind. It is so much more than a plush animal. In fact it is 3 things – a plush animal, pillow, and blanket! Plus all Zoobies have lots of squishability, a term coined by Zoobies that measures how extremely soft and cuddly their products are. Plus there are so many adorable animals to choose from. Dilly and Sugar received Hada the Hippo which Dilly picked because it matched her new room.
Hada is a chubby plump hippo measuring at 17.7″ long, 6.7″ wide, and 9.1″ tall that practically begs to be cuddled. Her head is stuffed with microbeads for ultimate squishability. The two bottom hook and loop Velcro tabs gather Hada together to turn her into a super cute plush animal. Unhook them and she becomes a pillow! Then open the zipper and a super soft 44″ by 34″ blanket is hidden inside. This blanket can stay attached to Hada or unzipped completely. In fact as I sit here writing this review I am covered up with this cuddle blanket, hehe. As you know I am always concerned about the ability to machine wash toys made out of fabric and you can do that with Zoobies products. It is recommended that the outer pouch (the part that looks like an animal) is spot cleaned, but can be cleaned in the washing machine if put in a delicates bag. Plus I just love all the little details on Hada like the cute stitching around her ears, just too cute! And of course the girls love her..
Not only do the girls love their Zoobies Blanket Pet, but I love her too. She is super cuddle and does three things – what’s not to love? Hada is the perfect traveling companion for little ones or just to lounge around with at home. And she is reasonably priced too and at $35 she makes a great Christmas present. Oh and Zoobies makes some other great products too: Blankie Babies – smaller versions of the Blanket Pets for little ones, Slumber Pets – over sized plush toys with built in pillow and fleece sleeping bag, and Storytime Pals – special Zoobies editions of your childs favorite storybook characters.
