Zoobies Pets Review


Like most young children, my son loves stuffed animals. We recently took a trip to the Dallas Zoo, where my son discovered elephants for the first time. Once we arrived home from the zoo, he began looking all throughout the house while shouting out “elephant!” I didn’t think much of it, until he tossed his favorite stuffed animal from his bed. At that moment, I realized he was looking for an elephant stuffed animal

My “mom mission” was to find my son an elephant stuffed animal. During my search, I discovered Zoobies, who just happened to have exactly what I was looking for. Zoobies makes plush stuffed animals known as Zoobie Pets. However, Zoobie Pets aren’t just any ordinary stuffed animal. They are adorable 3-in1 stuffed animals that easily transform from a stuffed animal, to a pillow, to a soft, snuggly blanket.

Turtle-stuffed-animalZoobies has so many wonderful Zoobie Pets to choose from, including animals from their Safari Collection, Zoo Collection, Bug Collection, Wildlife Collection, Baby Zoobies and even Adult Zoobies. If the choice was up to me, I would have chosen the super cute Tama the Tortoise. However, my son insisted on an elephant, therefore we chose the equally adorable Ellema the Elephant.


Ellema the Elephant will win over your child’s heart as soon as he/she lays eyes on her. My two year old son helped me remove Ellema from the shipping box and he hasn’t let her out of his sight once. Ellema the Elephant is absolutely adorable! She is a soft shade of beautiful baby blue and includes to plush white elephant tusks. Ellema’s head is stuffed with microbeads, which makes her extremely soft and squishy. She is made from 100% polyester, making her very durable.Ellema measures 53”x34”x 21.5L.


I cannot begin to tell you how much my son and I love our new Zoobies Pet! The 3-in-1 feature is absolutely amazing. Zoobies Pets are made with two soft hooks and a zipper which allow you to access the blanket. The blanket is removable, although my son prefers to keep it attached to Ellema. The removable blanket is a great feature for parents. My son spilled juice on his blanket and I was able to easily remove the blanket to wash, while spot washing the outer pouch.

I was so amazed at how soft the fleece blanket was. In the two years and dozens of blankets we’ve gone through, I have never felt one as soft as Ellema. The blanket is the perfect size to keep your little ones warm and can easily accommodate more than one small child.

Zoobies recommends using a lingerie bag if machine washing. I did not see these instructions prior to washing, but am happy to say after being washed several times, Ellema is in the same new condition we received her in – no peeling, fading or shrinking. They also recommend Ellema for children 3 and up (safety tested for all ages), however my 2 year old has done great with her.

Zoobies-CollectionZoobies Pets are reasonably priced and can be transformed from a stuffed animal, to a pillow and blanket, making them ideal for all places and occasions – at home, bedtime, doctor’s visits, road trips, birthday gifts, baby shower gifts and much more. I am so excited to have discovered Zoobies and I look forward to beginning my new Zoobies collection!
