As you may know by being a reader of ToyXplosion, we have a thing for plush animals. We love them and so do our kids. So when we hear about a new plush toy company willing to send us one for review and one to giveaway to our awesome readers, we just can’t pass up the opportunity!
We are excited to tell you about a brand new company called ZombieZoo. During the 2010 Holiday Season, ZombieZoo released a line of plush animals who are cute and creepy. Each character is different, quirky and feature an unusual storyline and unique personality.
Here’s a little bit about ZombieZoo and its characters.
ZOMBIEZOO is unlike any zoo you have ever visited. While it has exotic animals, gift shops, restaurants, moats, fences and a zookeeper, in ZOMBIEZOO, the animals are in charge. “The instant the Zombie critters become your guide, you’re on your way to adventure,” said Twinem. “Let them be your companion and muse. They’re cute and creepy, but never gory. You will be surprised to discover how cuddly these living-dead animals can be!”
The ZOMBIEZOO family of fun loving animals includes Boo the black cat, the natural born leader of the group, and Stich, a pig obsessed with hygiene. Along with their friends, Muck (Monkey), Rob (Rabbit) and Toxic (Snake), original (large) Zombies stand at 12 to 15 inches high, are made of soft fleece and have a loveable “Frankenstein” quality of stitching adorning their bodies and over-sized heads. Zombie minis, exact replicas of their larger siblings, stand 4-5 inches tall and include a handy clip to attach to backpacks, clothing, etc.
We received Muck the Monkey and welcomed him into our family. Although he has way more energy than any animal should ever possess, he is more fun then, well… a barrel of monkeys! He’s soft, cuddly and the one eye makes him creepy, but we just love him anyway.
Muck gives new meaning to the word “hyper”! He is a non-stop, delightfully happy guy that is always ready to party. To tell you the truth, Muck pretty much has a party in his head and just wants the other Zombies to join in. He can be seen around the Zoo swinging and hanging upside-down while humming and eating as much popcorn and animal crackers that he can get his little hands on. You might want to keep your snacks hidden!
ZombieZoo will make its formal debut at the New York Toy Fair in February and will be featuring a new electronic book. The all-new, eight minute long narrated DVD Story-book, titled “Where does Boo go,” contains original artwork by Twinem and follows the escapades of Muck, Stich, Rob and Toxic as they try to find out where their buddy Boo disappears to. Along the way their well-meaning curiosity brings about new discoveries in the world of ZOMBIEZOO.
Check out this short trailer of the DVD story-book.
All ZOMBIEZOO characters are available online and at specialty retailers. Large Zombies include the DVD Story book with a suggested retail price of $20.99. Zombie minis are available without the DVD for $7.00 and as a gift set with all of the minis plus the DVD for $34.99. The personality tags hanging around their necks of each size tell their compelling stories to anyone who is looking for a friend and cuddly character to bring home.
