When I came across these cuties, I just couldn’t resist making them available in the Tiny Tapir Store.
Not least of the reason was I wanted every single one of them for myself …. um. I mean I wanted to create a Zoobie ‘collection’ at Teeny Tiny Tapir for our play center children to play with….
So, presenting for the first time in Malaysia at Tiny Tapir ….
A Zoobie pet is the perfect companion for children (and adults!). It’s not just an adorable soft toy, it’s also functional! Each Zoobie, when buttoned up, looks like a sweet (but sophisticated, not ‘cutesy’) animal.
Meet Mashaka our red monkey friend :
However, when you want to lay your head down, your Zoobie friend will obligingly flatten him/herself to become a pillow for you to rest on.
And then, when you’re REALLY exhausted, and slightly chilly, your Zoobie friend will throw up his guts and use his intestines to keep you warm :
The zoobie is fantastic for long car rides and for taking up on the airplane (did you know airplane blankets and pillows do not get washed after every use? Kinda gross right?). When taking a zoobie up to the airplane, when your child is ready to sleep, simply unzip the blanket and stuff the airline pillow into the zoobie’s body to use it as a pillow case. That way your child will have a nice clean blanket and pillow to use.
The blanket is a super soft and warm Microfleece. Blanket can be unzipped and machine washed.
Your child will love the zoobie too – there’s lots of great textures for a younger child to explore – from the furry backs to the smooth faces and the microbeads heads.
At RM135 – it’s great value for a 3 in one toy that will last a really long time.
Zoobies were made in China – designed by a brother team in the USA, one brother actually moved to China to oversee production and make sure the quality of the materials and the construction is guaranteed, and that there are fair working conditions in the Factory.
New designs come out regularly, so each Zoobie species has a limited lifespan – especially true for those which are ‘Limited Release’.
Below are the Zoobies available for purchase at Tiny Tapir. Most of the designs sold out at the recent Parenthood fair, so now we only have Lencho the Lion and Khimba the Koala in stock. The rest are arriving later this week and available for pre-order now.
