This is what they say about Zylie and her companions in the description:
Meet Zylie, the fun new teddy bear that’s designed to be dressed and played with like a doll. She is an inquisitive and fashionable 12-year-old bear from Manhattan. Follow her on a series of adventures all around the world. Every country she visits, she meets a new friend who joins her on the adventures. Her first adventure takes her to China, where she meets Shen the Panda. Zylie is a jointed 18” plush bear and comes dressed to impress in her signature skinny jeans, flounce top and beautifully-detailed cream-colored swing jacket. She’s carrying a hip orange bag that comes complete with her diary, map and all-important passport. Get to know Zylie, her brother Theo and their wacky adventures by reading her first book, The Adventures of Zylie the Bear New York (also included).
I was really shocked to see that she actually has other outfits that you can get for her and that she has a brother named Theo! They have given her all kinds of outfits to wear and her first adventure is in New York but she somehow loses her way and ends up in a crate bound for China. While she is there she meets Shen the Bear who also comes with his own clothes and personality.
Here is what they say about Shen, the Panda:
Meet Shen, Zylie’s panda friend from China. Follow Shen on a series of adventures with Zylie all over the world. His kit comes with an 18” plush Shen Panda in his cool leather jacket, green t-shirt and khakis. He also has his backpack, filled with his passport and, most importantly, his drumsticks. Find out how Zylie and Theo meet Shen and follow their travels to China with the second book in Zylie’s adventure series, The Adventures of Zylie the Bear China (also included).Here is something I found out on the About Us section:
Zylie is the toy I wish I could have had for my daughter when she was young. Sarah only liked playing with stuffed animals, but would see her sister Kate’s doll clothes and want to dress up her teddy bear. So she’d stuff the bear into the doll clothes, and it all ended up looking ridiculous. I wondered then why there wasn’t a toy that was cuddly like a teddy bear, but could be dressed and played with like a doll.Zylie the Bear has been kind enough to offer one of my reader's one of her cousins to come and stay with you and your family. Open to the U.S. only. I hope you have a little girl she can play with.
And from that idea Zylie was born. My son Matt and I have gone about creating a world of fun and adventure around Zylie, with a series of fun children’s books that follow Zylie on her global travels, several fashionable new outfits for the bears, new friends like Shen the Panda, and most importantly, a strong role model for kids in the characters we create.
