#Zoobies Blanket Pets Offer Adorable Cuddles and Convenience (#Review & #Giveaway)

Part of MBP's Summer Splash

When I found out that I was going to be a mommy, and started to receive gifts for my son, I received a whole lot of blankets. They say you shouldn't even register for baby blankets, because you're bound to receive more than you'll know what to do with. We definitely have an abundance of baby blankets in our house, but since my little guy is growing up, we've been on a hunt for super cool 'big boy' blankets that are different from your typical baby or toddler blankets.

When I found Zoobies a little over a month ago, I knew I had to look into their products! Zoobies were created by two young brothers, who came from a large  family (nine children!), and wanted to be able to invent something that was innovative, functional and fun. The brothers saw a need to be able to consolidate what was brought along on roadtrips and family outings... something that would definitely make life easier on moms.

I was offered the chance to review a Zoobies Blanket Pet of choice, and wanted to pick out something that Balian would really enjoy. So, I called him over to the computer to look through the Blanket Pets with me, and he settled on Draco Dragon. Draco Dragon was packed up, and dlivered to our door within a few days, and Balian couldn't wait to meet him- face to plush face.

Balian, introducing himself to Draco Dragon

Draco Dragon is one of many Zoobies Blanket Pets. Why is this plush pal called a blanket pet? Glad you asked! Though Draco Dragon is a plush toy, he can be converted to a pillow, and holds a blanket, which is stored inside, until you're ready to use it! The soft blanket is detachable, so if it needs to be washed, there's no problem, there. 

The tag on our Draco Dragon let us know that there was a large blanket waiting for us inside of Draco!

We wanted to check the blanket out, of course, so we unzipped the sides, rolled the blanket out, and were met by a soft blue colored blanket- perfect for snuggling under! The soft coral fleece blanket inside of the Zoobies Blanket Pets are a pretty decent size- 44" x 34", which is great for a toddler.

Here's the blanket, still attached to Draco Dragon, spread out on the couch...

Balian immediately wanted to play with Draco Dragon, and cuddle with the blanket. He's been very into dragons lately, and he insisted on snuggling with Draco Dragon and watching 'How to Train Your Dragon' together. Draco is so adorably cute. He is as soft as the blanket, has crinkle hooves and wings, and even has a bit of a sparkle to him. He's very friendly for a dragon, and has a very comforting smile. He's definitely Balian's favorite new cuddle pal! Since this blanket can usually be found in our living room, I have been known to cover up with it on chilly mornings as I sip my coffee and catch the news! Oh yeah- you just might want to swipe it for yourself!

Isn't Draco cute?

One of the best things about the Zoobies Blanket Pets, is that they are an answer to many moms headaches over packing a million things for their kiddos! Whether we're headed out for a day trip, a weekend trip, and overnighter to grandma's house, or a vacation, we wing up packing a blankie, a pillow, a cuddle pal, and lots of other 'necessities.' With the Zoobies Blanket Pets, it's a 3-in-1 deal for the blankie, pillow and cuddle friend! I wish that we'd had a Zoobies Blanket Pet when we went on our cruise in January... it would have saved time, space and would have been a lot of fun for Balian, too! I might even advise having two of these adorable characters on hand. Keep one of them in the car organizer, so you'll always have a blanket, pillow and plush pal, should you find yourself needing one while away from home!

We couldn't imagine taking a trip and leaving our new friend Draco Dragon behind. We know that Balian is sort of attached to Draco, and we couldn't be happier! This means that we can leave his baby cuddle blanket, his pillow and several stuffed animals at home, and bring Draco along instead. The Zoobies Blanket Pets make great travel pillows for the kids, especially if they are still in booster or car seats (these are safety teste d for all ages, but remember, these are recommended for ages 3+ ). Balian loves to lean his head again Draco in the car and snooze until we reach our destination.
