Finally, the mailman stalking can stop, hehe! Our SoftJox plush sports characters came this week, and they’ve been such a big hit with the boys. You can read all about how we ordered them and how I obsessively watched for the mailman to bring it here (PS- my husband works for the post office, so being a mailman stalker isn’t quite as weird when you know them as someone other than just the mailman… I think). Well anyway, here they are!
First off, I was so impressed at how big their SoftJox characters were! They are big and plush, and the perfect size for lots of pretend tackling that will happen with every football game they watch… and all the time in between when they’re just being themselves. Every single part of them was soft, including the helmet and the eyes, and I was thrilled at the construction of the face pieces. They were really well sewn in, and you could tell that they were made of high quality materials. Plus, SoftJox characters are really cool, cute, cuddly non-descript characters not based on any real life sports figures- leaving naming them and playing with them completely up to your child’s imagination.
My favorite part of the SoftJox football players though, is definitely the names and numbers on the back of the jerseys. The boys are at the age where they recognize their name (and hence, WRITE their name on everything… paper, toys, walls, whatever), so they LOVED that their names were on their very own players, along with their favorite numbers. I loved that just like the rest of the characters, the names were made on the jerseys really well. When I ordered, I assumed they would be iron-on transfers like some of the sports jerseys I see, but instead they are a soft velvety thick fabric that’s adhered on really well. I know that the boys can spend all of their time tackling, throwing, and snuggling with their football guys without worry of hurting themselves or the SoftJox.
The SoftJox family-run company offers two different sizes of characters, and will soon be adding lots of other sports, including baseball, soccer, and cheerleading, just to name a few. Be sure to check out SoftJox and order now, because they’re running a special through the Superbowl that includes FREE personalization of a name and number on the back ($7.95 value), and free priority shipping on all orders!
