I won a Zoobies pet in a giveaway from Life With Two Boys right before the holidays! It was perfect because I knew my son, who is four, would love it. He thought it was just a stuffed animal at first when he saw it on Christmas morning. When I showed him that he could use it as a pillow and that it also converted into a blanket, he was ecstatic! He went with his grandparents for a week after Christmas until New Years, and of course he wanted to take the Zoobie Pet with him. My parents thought it was perfect because normally we pack him a stuffed animal a pillow and a blanket for his car ride, and this was that all in one!
Ever since then Kojo the Croc has had a permanent spot on my little one’s bed. All of his other stuffed animals have been moved to the bin, and he says that Kojo is now his favorite pal. He carries him around and plays with him on adventures and then when it is time to go to sleep Kojo goes with him. He loves that at night his now favorite pet provides him with a blanket to snuggle with in his bed as well as the animal. If you ever have a chance to get one of these pets for your child…do it! It provides a sense of comfort and warmth that you would never expect.
Little did I know that they also make Storytime Pals. I am thinking that for my son’s birthday this upcoming April I will be trying to get the Llama Llama Red Pajama pal for him. He has loved the books ever since he has had them and I think this would be a perfect accompaniment to that. He would be overjoyed to have Llama Llama with him during storytime, and who knows maybe Llama Llama and Kojo will become friends!
