Hi Everyone! I know you are scrambling around trying to find Christmas gifts and I have one for any child that I think they will love and that is the Zoobies! I like that this has been one of the greatest ideas that has come out in a long time. I love that they have so many different animals to choose from because not all kids like the same thing. These are really a great gift for smaller children more so than children over the age of 8 or 9. By that time they are into more complicated things and the beauty of Zoobie is they are not complicated.
I am amazed that these little things have blankets in them. At first, I thought, okay, they will be really little because how much can you really put inside that animal? Well, as some of you know this blanket is big enough to even cover me when I want to take a short nap (which is very often, as I have Fibromyalgia), so I decided if I ever get the chance, I need to get myself one! Why not? Who says they are just for kids? I think everyone should have one. Maybe then we could all lighten up and laugh a little more and just be a kid again and enjoy our lives a little!
There are four types of Zoobies:
1.) Storytime Pals are your child's favorite character themed blanket
2.) Blankie Babies have a satin comfort corner along with a teething ring
3.) Slumber Pets come with a fleece sleeping bag
4.) Blanket Pets are the original pillow with a blanket
All of the above are as cute as they can be and there are so many different characters to choose from that you will find one to fit any need that you may have. The Blankie Babies would make great baby shower gifts to give because of the teething ring and just the comfort of having a stuffed pet. I thought the Slumber Pet was a great idea because what kid doesn't want to have sleepovers and there is never enough beds? The Storytime Pals is an extention of your child's favorite character from a book! And lastly, the original Blanket Pet who is just there for you to use as a pillow and a blanket when your eyes get droopy and you just want to curl up with your very best friend!
Wow, nine children, people that is alot of kids!! They started the company in 2007 because they figured they had a good bit of experience in what works for children & moms. I was surprised to find out that J.C. who is the President, has lived in China for the last 13 years and he is fluent in Mandarin Chinese. While Reid stayed in Utah where they were born and raised and is the VP of Business Development and loves to travel. They are both co-founders of the company.
The Zoobies have what they call the Zoobies Three C Mission: Convertible, Comfort and Convenience. I don't think they have to worry too much about meeting those standards because they have accomplished all that and more! They have managed to help moms out by having that 3 in 1 function so that means less clutter for us!
Wouldn't you just love to be there right now to see what they are coming up with? I checked out there About Us section and under that was Meet the Team. They have 17 people, which includes the two brothers, that forms and makes this company what it is today. It looks like they have half the company in China and the other half in Utah. I certainly can't wait to see what other new and exciting projects they have in mind later on down the road. I have a feeling they are just getting started.
There are several ways to check out the company and they are listed below:
