Get that “Christmas Ideas” list ready, because this is one you’ll want to be adding near the top of it. Zoobies Blanket Pets are topping lists everywhere as one of the most wished-for products of the season, and with good reason. These super-cute plush animals can be cuddled as is, turned into a pillow, or transformed into a soft, cozy blanket. When Jacob and I got the chance to pick out one for review, I was sure he would go with the puppy. He always goes for the dog. But he surprised me by picking out the cute “Bubba the Black Bear.” He is so soft and cuddly, I almost wanted to steal him for myself! Of course, that would just be mean, so I dutifully handed him over to my precious (precocious?) munchkin and reveled in his happy smile.

Jake loves that Bubba can turn into so many different things (he is fascinated by multipurpose stuffed animals. Or maybe just stuffed animals in general. Remind me to take a picture of his bed one night.) The blanket is just right for snuggling on the sofa while watching a movie.  I love that Zoobies come in so many unique animals. Sure, there’s the usual puppy, cat,  and elephant, but there’s also a whole slew of fun, less often featured animals, like a tortoise, gazelle, and crocodile. I also really like the story behind Zoobies, about how two brothers wanted to create the perfect all-in-one cuddly companion that was easy to take on trips.

 

Zoobies Features

  • The head is filled with microbeads to make it really squishy. I appreciate that ONLY the head has these beads in it, because too much squishy-ness would be overkill.
  • Each one comes with a blanket that measures 44×34 inches, and matches the animal. Bubba’s blanket is the same color as his fur.
  • Two strong and well-placed Velcro hook and loop systems turn the Zoobie from a pillow to a stuffed animal.
  • The blanket unzips completely from the Zoobie animal, and you can put it in the washing machine.
  • Recommended for ages 3 and up, but the product has been safety tested and approved for all ages.
  • Comes in 24 different types of animals.
