Holiday Gift Guide 2012 : ZULU THE ZEBRA – MORE THAN JUST A PLUSH TOY Review + Giveaway – Closed


Do you still remember your comfort blanket, pillow, or stuffed toy? The one that you spent countless nights and daytime naps with. The one that you cried a river for every single time it had to be taken to the laundry. I’m certain we all have that one comfort object that we refused to let go of no matter how tattered and torn it was. I’m sure that my little Sean will have one too. He’s already quite fond with one of his blankies but, thankfully, has not made a big fuss yet whenever I have to wash it.
That’s about to change though now that he has a new blanket pet. Created by Zoobies, Zulu the Zebra Mini Plush is three things rolled into one lovable bedtime buddy. Apart from being a cute and huggable plush Zebra, Zulu is also a very comfortable pillow and a cozy blanket. Zulu the Zebra may seem nothing more than an ordinary animal plush toy but it holds many wonderful surprises. The stuffed head is filled with microbeads that make it delightfully squishable. Unfasten the Velcro straps and Zulu the Zebra turns into a very comfy pillow. Unzip it, and out comes a cozy blanket. The fleece blanket provides warmth and comfort and, at 44”x 34”, is big enough for Sean to snuggle in. Without any doubt, Zulu the Zebra will be Sean’s comfort object and would be a constant companion in all our travels.

He’d most probably throw a fit when it’s time to give Zulu a wash. Thankfully, cleaning up isn’t a problem as well as it is made of 100% polyester and is machine washable and can be tumbled dry. If you have a child who’s utterly delighted by anything plush and cuddly, you may want to get him his own blanket pet. There’s Draco the Dragon, Puddles the Pig, and Patch the Pinto among other Zoobies you can choose from. Christmas is just around the corner so you may want to buy some extras when you get one of these Zoobies blanket pets for your child. These bedtime buddies will surely bring smiles to children’s faces.
