#Giveaway and Review - Zoobies Slumber Pets

One of the things about traveling away from home with children, especially special needs kids, so finding a Zoobies Slumber Pet for Liam was a great way to help him manage the transitions and have something familiar in the hotels and while we are out visiting...

Since he was studying the Very Hungry Caterpillar at school, I decided that we should adopt this wonderful Zoobie:

Very Hungry Caterpillar

  • 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.
My review:
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!
