Zoobies PR and Happy Birthday Eric Carle!

Today is children's author Eric Carle's birthday and I thought it would be the perfect day to post my review on the Hungry Caterpillar Zoobie! The Zoobie company sent this to me for review because I thought it would be a PERFECT storytime buddy! In the upcoming picture you'll see that it is!

My kids were beyond thrilled when it came in because it's like a stuffed animal, pillow, and blanket all in one. They've been draging it with them everywhere they go! It's soft and made sturdy which I really liked since I have to throw it in the washer now and again. Another great feature is that the blanket can be connected by a zipper to the caterpillar and stuffed inside. I LOVED that!

Here you can see what it looks like "assembled" and by that I mean with the blanket zipped inside and the velcro attached. Just like a stuffed animal right?

Here are my kiddos with the blanket in use and you see my son "sleeping" with the caterpillar LOL! Since it is Eric Carle's birthday we made a trip to the library and came back with ALL of these books...all by Mr. Carle! They really do love his fun books.
Here you can see the blanket and caterpillar again....but it gives you a much better idea of what it looks like. :)

These come in all themes and so many different animals that there is probably something for everyone. If you'd like to find out more about Zoobies you can visit and check out what they have. I think these would make GREAT gifts!


  1. This is awesome - I wish it had been available when my kids were small enough to enjoy it because they loved his stories!

  2. That is awesome. My kids would love these as well!

  3. I love the Eric Carle books. I just wish they had these products when my kids were young.
    Btw, if you have time I have a couple of reviews you might enjoy.

  4. OMG I am in love - These would make such a great gift! Thanks for sharing! I am off to check out the website!

  5. I totally want one! Eric Carle is my favorite kids' author, hands down. The colors, so vibrant. First author I introduced to my son when he was a baby and the tradition has continued. I want that pillow/blanket so much!
    Thank you for the review!

  6. Fantastic! I'd never heard of these. Thanks so much for the intro!
