JUMBiES are Jumbled Babies! They are a result of the storks crashing into each other and jumbling up all the baby animals! So a Duck and a Monkey becomes a Duckey!...and a Dingo and a Bat becomes a Dingbat! Each JUMBiE comes with its own mini comic book and POG. JUMBiES also have their own D.O.J (Date of Jumble) and motto. These cute whimsical animals really ignite the imagination of children and adults alike!
I received two JUMBiES for review, planning to give one to each of my older children... but lo and behold, my twelve year old stuffed animal collector claimed them both for her collection!
We got the Moosecow and the Pigbit to review.
Robyn really appreciated that these toys weren't perfect and weren't rejected either... It reminded us of the Christmas special with the "Island of Misfit Toys"
These toys are a great learning opportunity to talk to your children about people and animals who may have differences... much more of a conversation starter than say, webkinz or beanie babies. The comic book that comes with the JUMBiES offers their background and a great way to introduce your child to their new 'pet'.
There is also an online site at www.jumbieland.com - while not as extensive as webkinz, there are some cute games and activities for elementary school age children and some printable pictures for younger kids.
Check out the whole line of JUMBiES including these cute little guys:
