There have been days I know I have said to the kids ‘Not one more stuffed animal is to enter our house…you hear me!?’. Now, before you think I am over-reacting, you should see their collections. Between their beds, closets and storage – we have stuffed animals coming out our ears.
I’ve gotten over my stuffed animal issue and invited the new plush toy JUMBiES into our home with open arms. I fell in love with them and so did our kids. What’s so special about JUMBiES? Here’s a some of their story. This is what happened when the storks crashed into each other.
The storks smashed right into each other. It kept happening one after the other. They crashed in the clouds up in the air. There were stork feathers everywhere! They landed in the water, the trees and in the dirt. It was a miracle that none of the storks were hurt.Then they quickly went to see if the babies were okay. The babies were fine but the storks did not know what to say. When the storks crashed and tumbled, it appeared all the animal babies were jumbled! The storks could not believe their eyes. These babies were quite a surprise. They still looked very lovable and sweet. But they were very different from their head to their feet.
There were no more zebras or elephants. But they found lots and lots of Zelephants! They looked for giraffes and buffaloes. But the storks only found Giraffaloes! These jumbled babies became a new breed. So they called them JUMBiES the storks agreed.
What a mess right?! You can read the whole story here.
We love the whole concept behind JUMBiES. Did you know you can sit forever coming up with new JUMBiES ideas? Maybe that’s just us, but it was fun to come up with two animals that could be jumbled together.
