Cute and Cuddly Functional Toys From Zoobies (Review & Giveaway)

Robots are not the only ones that can change into cars, rocket ships, and whatever else creative toy designers can think of.  Plushies can also be convertible.

The Mashaka the Monkey I received from Zoobies is one such toy and has been a great toy for my little one.  This adorable monkey plushie is not only a toy that kids, and not-quite-kids-anymore, can play with.  It’s also a fluffy pillow and soft blanket.  Now, I’m sure the little one will not be bored and uneasy during our car trips.

Mashaka the Monkey has been hanging around my little one’s neck since we pulled it out from the package.  The toy cum pillow-blanket combo boasts of what its manufacturers call as “squishability.” By the feel of the microbead stuffed head of Mashaka, I’d have to agree with this creative description.    The 44” x 34” coral fleece blanket can easily be zipped inside the monkey’s body.  It is made of mostly polyester so clean up isn’t a problem.  There are no safety issues here since the product has been tested to be safe for kids ages 3 and up.

Mashaka is not the only cuddly creature offered by this innovative toy maker.  There are other animals like Hada the Hippo, Puddles the Pig, Lola the Lamb, Cookie the Cow and a zoo-ful of animal friends in the Blanket Pets collection.  There are also other convertible plushie products in the Glow Bugs, Sidekix, Blankie Babies, Storytime Pals, Book Buddies, Duffel Dogs, and Slumber Pets collections.  These products are testament to the company’s mission of bringing convertible, comfortable, and convenient functional soft toys into the arms of children in homes all over.

These toys are affordable – even more so with the currently running promo that offers a 20% discount with the coupon code “Parenthood. At this discounted rate, I think I’ll get a headstart on my Christmas shopping for the little ones in my list.  Also, I’m getting Puddles the Pig so my two little preschoolers won’t have to take turns with Mashaka anymore.
