Do you have a new “special addition” coming to the family OR know someone is does? Are you looking for that special ,perfect present to give at the baby shower or as a birthday present? I have an idea for you. It’s ZOOBIES.
What are Zoobies, you ask? Well … it’s a blanket and huggable pet in one great soft plush animal. Zoobies have been featured on ABC’s “The View” and NBC’s “Today”. The wonderful people over at Zoobies gave me one of their Blanket Pets, and I (or should I say my daughter) LOVE it ! I was given the Lencho The Lion pet (I chose this one myself). Little Lencho is good for all ages to enjoy (my daughter is 11) and it comes with a mini plush;It’s like getting a Momma or Daddy Lion and then getting the cub lion for FREE ! See following for photos AND site description –
Lencho the Lion™ with Mini Plush™
From his fun wild mane to his super-soft fur, Lencho™ is sure to become your child’s constant companion. Not only is Lencho™ an adorable lion, but also a comfy pillow and super-soft blanket all in one. Comes with a mini friend! Perfect for road excursions or just cuddling in bed. Lencho™ also makes for the ideal baby shower gift.
I gave my Princess her Zoobie as an Easter gift.I added it to her to her basket,and she REALLY likes it. I was a little worried that she might think it was too “baby-sh” for her,but I was pleasantly proven wrong.She had a great big smile on her face when she received it and she even went to bed and slept with it.I think it’s pretty cool how the Zoobie is a combination of pillow,plush animal,and blanket.It’s very versatile, and you can take it any and every where.The blanket,once taken out (it’s zippered in the lion’s head) , opens up to a very accommodating 44″ x 34′ long. I think that the additional mini plush is a cool little bonus,too. That was,if your little one doesn’t want to use the Blanket pet,they have Baby Lencho there with them. Here are some more specs for Lencho The Lion ,if you want to know more.

I personally give Zoobies Blanket Pets a 9 out 10 for my rating. Why? Because this is a versatile toy that grows with your child and it could very well become on of their favorites that can/will accompany them every where they go. When my son was a baby ,he had a handmade blanky that he would drag along with him ;it was his security blanket for a loooong time.Just think of the strong and courageous Lencho the Lion and his cub both being that security blanket pet for your child!
