Since he was studying the Very Hungry Caterpillar at school, I decided that we should adopt this wonderful Zoobie:
Zoobies® has teamed up with the World of Eric Carle™ to bring you the Very Hungry Caterpillar™ Slumber Pet™. Featuring an iconic butterfly print sleeping bag zipped inside, this large plush character is perfect for napping. Whether for a sleepover or just enjoying at home, this Slumber Pet™ is sure to become your child's best friend.
- Microbead stuffed head for ultimate squishability™
- Large, super-soft coral fleece sleeping bag zipped inside with iconic butterfly print: 43" x 22"
- L: 27" x W: 11" x H: 13"
- 100% polyester (additional materials)
- Washing-Sleeping Bag: Machine wash, tumble dry. Sleeping bag zips off for easy washing.
- Washing-Outer pouch: Spot wash (if machine washed, using a laundry bag designed for delicates is recommended).
- Recommended for ages 3 and up, but safely tested for all ages.
I really appreciate the fact that this product is safety tested for all ages, because Erik is all over this caterpillar - he climbs on it, kisses it and tries to drag it across the floor... and Liam loves it too!
Liam loves to unzip the sleeping bag and use it as a big blanket and he also like to make the butterfly fly.
I love that I can easily wash the sleeping bag portion, so that no matter where it goes. I love too that the caterpillar doesn't deflate like the regular Zoobies pet that we have when you take the blanket out - so that you don't have to choose between having a pillow or a blanket.
The only thing that makes The Very Hungry Caterpillar tough for travel is it's size - it doesn't work well as a car pillow for a child in a carseat.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar is available directly from Zoobies.com for just $60 and you can also get non-licensed Slumber pets for only $50 each. You can also win your very own Zoobies Slumber pet right here on Acting Balanced!
