Zoobies - 3- in-1 Plush Toy, Blanket & Pillow - Zoobie Pets
Who is Zoobies?...
& What is a Zoobie?...
We at Zoobies™ are about INNOVATION, COMFORT & FUN! Zoobies™ was begun by two brothers on a quest born out of a desire for innovation and a love of children (coming from a family of 9 we know what kids like!). We at Zoobies wanted to come up with something fun and different that had never been introduced out on the market. After months of development and converting basic conceptuals to new innovative ideas, Zoobie Pets were finally born! From the Kalahari Desert to the marshy wetlands of the Okhavango Delta sprung forth our love for the African animal and from our desire to hear Childrens’ shouts of joyous laughter gave birth to our new patent pending designs. With a Roar of excitement, we introduce you to the Zoobie Pets! From such characters as Hada the Hippo and Cheche the Cheetah. We hope that you will also say that you’ve now heard the Call of the Wild!
Exciting new patented 3 in 1 concept
Zoobie™ Pets embody an innovative and newly patented concept. Each Pet is a plush toy, a soft pillow and a comfy blanket all in one! They are the perfect childhood companion!
The ideal travel companion!
Zoobie™ Pets also make for the ideal traveling companions for children. They keep children entertained when they are awake and comfortable when they are asleep.
We have spared no expense making Zoobies™ Pets the cutest, most lovable plush animals in the Animal Kingdom! Our Safari Collection comes in a bright and multi-colored set that is very appealing to children. Each animal has been tagged and collared so that they don't get loose. All incorporate their unique novelty eye and ear stitching. Plus, each comes with their own Cool African-Safari name!
We wanted to make Zoobie™ Pets as soft, squishy and cuddly as possible. The signature faces all contain micro beads, making them extremely soft (and fun for children to squeeze!). Each animal has its own definitive extra-soft-to-the-touch body texture, making for exceptionally comfy pillows. The inner blankets are made of extra soft and warm coral fleece-the perfect cuddling companion.
Easy to use
Zoobie™ Pets are incredibility simple to use. The durable easy fasten Velcro latches are child friendly, and easily unlatched to transform the animals into cuddly pillows. The durable zips located on the bottoms easily unzip, exposing the inner blankets (which can also be detached from the animals for easy washing). Along with our focus on children, we also had MOMS in mind when we designed these. Each animal comes with an instruction hangtag that illustrates how to properly fold up the blankets-a simple and easy to follow 1-2-3 process!
Safe for Children
Zoobies™ is proud member of TIA, and we are dedicated to safety for children. As such, we have made sure that Zoobie™ Pets adhere strictly to all ASTM F963 (USA) & EN71 (EU) standards and regulations.

We have a QC team that carefully monitors production, and another team that monitors distribution, making sure that the ordering process is smooth and easy, consistent, on-time and headache-free each and every time.
Zoobies Wins Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award 2008 and Creative Child's Toy of the Year!
Press Release: August 20, 2007- The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio reviews hundreds of children's products every year to determine which products are remarkable enough to grant their seal of approval. According to their website, "When consumers see our award seals on products, they can be assured that they are 'award-winning' because they were selected by a noted expert in child development, children's literature, and education, and further tested by the most objective panel of judges-kids." The site also declares, "We can tell it like it is, because we don't have to worry about companies pulling their ads. You can trust our kid, parent, and educator tested picks." That's why it's an honor for a company to receive their gold award as Zoobies™ recently did. Toy Portfolio co-founder, Stephanie Oppenheim describes Zoobies™ as "the perfect take-along! Zoobies are better than a blankie or a stuffed animal!" This is not the only prestigious award they have received recently.
They also found out that they were named Creative Child Magazine's 2007 Toy of the Year. Creative Child's owner and founder, Scott Reichart describes Zoobies™ as "an easy to use soft plush toy. It's a 3-in-1 concept that gives children something to cuddle, sleep on and keep them warm. It's the perfect travel companion for your child."
More on Zoobies™
Zoobies™ was started by two young brothers who wanted to produce something "new, innovative, and extremely cuddly; something that would be both fun for kids and handy for parents at home and on the road" says founder, JC Smoot. The patented Zoobies™ concept is the only plush animal concept out there that turns into both a pillow and blanket. After designing 12 animals for the brand new 2007 Safari Collection and unveiling them at the 2007 TIA Toy Fair in New York, they realized they were on to something big.
