Mommy and We Zoobies Blanket Pets™ Review and Giveaway



Zoobies Blanket Pets™ Review and Giveaway
Hosted by Mommy and We
Last week, I received a Zoobies Blanket Pet to review. What is a Zoobie? It's a pet that has a blanket inside it! Plush toy, pillow and blanket all in one to be exact. I received Tama the Tortoise. How awesome, considering I LOVE turtles! (Did I mention my first tattoo was of a turtle?!?) It came via UPS while the kiddos were in school. I played with it all by myself for awhile but had a hard time putting the blanket back in...Little did I know, if I'd just actually looked at it instead of playing with it, there was instructions (imagine that) on it's tag! Wow! teehee Then it was actually easy! He is so soft! So...I finally put it up and did some mommy stuff. Gwen had tutoring after school, so I picked Tristan up at the bus stop and when he came home, he saw it first. We fought over it. Honestly. He decided it was his cause he LOVES turtles, too! But since I'm not only mommy, I'm also referee, I KNEW I couldn't safely give it to either of them without a fight or "you love him more" or "you love her more". Sigh. I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about. So for the time being, I'll keep it to myself and they can borrow it when they need it. (Gwen's "borrowing" it as I type!) When I'm a little more financially stable, it'll definitely be something I'll buy another of so they can both have one. As of right now, though, $35 is just a little out of my price range when they don't really NEED a blanket. There are so many to choose from! I especially love the elephant (who, sadly, is currently retired).
Tama the Tortoise is so soft and squishy. He makes a great cuddly! And his blanket is big enough to cover up with on the couch on those chilly evenings or would probably make a great blanket on a sleepover. Here are a few pictures of him closed, open and with his blankie out!
Can you honestly say you don't LOVE him???
He is so well made. His eyes are fabric, and his seams are all very well stitched. There are a few important points I want to touch on: 
  • Microbead stuffed head for ultimate squishability™ 
  • Large, super-soft coral fleece blanket zipped inside: 44" x 34" 
  • L: 13.2" x W: 7.1" x H: 4.9" 
  • 100% polyester (additional materials) (One of my favorite features because the tag actually says "Made from recycled plastic (PET) bottles")
  • Washing-Blanket: Machine wash, tumble dry. Blanket zips off for easy washing. 
  • Washing-Outer pouch: Spot wash (if machine washed, using a laundry bag designed for delicates is recommended). 
  • Two bottom hook-and-loop Velcro tabs gather Blanket Pet™ into animal shape. 
  • Recommended for ages 3 and up, but safely tested for all ages.
