This is how the luggage situation usually ends up when we travel with our daughter. My husband packs a small bag and then my daughter and I "share" a large bag. Or, I should say that my daughter's stuff takes up 80% of that space and I squeeze my things into the other 20% of the bag. It's amazing how much gear a baby/toddler requires. Depending on what "stage" your little one is, you might need a breast pump, bottles, nursing pads, diapers, wipes, a potty seat, pull-ups, extra sets of clothes, a baby carrier, a stroller, a sippy cup, the list goes on...
With so much to bring and so little room to store it all, I truly appreciate products that have more than one "purpose." After all, as moms we multi-task all of the time...shouldn't our products do the same thing?
One excellent example of a product that does this well is the Zoobie, "an innovative 3-in-1 pet that is a plush toy, a soft pillow, and a comfy blanket." My daughter has Ellema the Elephant and I have to say that she IS quite cute and extremely soft. She "transforms" from stuffed animal to pillow to blanket in seconds. So smart! And the best part about Zoobies is that there are so many animal choices...Koalas, Baboons, Rhinos, Crocodiles, and more!
The Zoobie is an ideal companion for road trips, airplane flights, or even for just running errands around town. Zoobie pets can be purchased online or at select retailers for $34.
WIN IT! One winner will receive a Zoobie Pet of his/her choice. To enter, leave a comment on this post stating which Zoobie is your favorite prior to Monday, July 14 at midnight (don’t forget to follow the rules). * Winner must provide a U.S. mailing address.
*UPDATE* The winner is #229 Ann Marie Walker. Congratulations!

I admit, I go back and forth on my favorite zoobie pets, because I like them all so much! Today, my favorite is Kojo, the croc. I also really like the music on their site, I know that's kind of weird. But it's fun and upbeat! I'd love to go on a safari one day. If only plane tickets weren't quite SO expensive. Thanks for the chance to win a zoobie.

Wow, the size of the blanket seems to be quite generous and it fits inside the animal! My son doesn't have a favorite animal yet, but I think I would pick Lencho the Lion for him.
I really was going to choose a bear but then I fell in love with Lencho the Lion!
Hadda the Hippo is my favorite. She is adorable!

Those are so cute! I especially like Zulu the Zebra.
count me in
I love the Zoobie pets. I think it is such a great idea to be able to have it as a pillow, blanket as well as a stuffed animal to play with. My personal fave is Ellema the elephant; but they are all adorable and I would pick according to which person I was buying for (for example, I have one grandson that loves monkeys so for him I would have to choose Mashaka the monkey.)
Too cute! Thank you for having this. I would choose Taj the tiger. thank you

Kojo the Croc He is absolutely the cutest.
I would love Taj for my son since that would be his favorite.
I'd have to say Elema, the elephant although I love all of them.
Kojo the Crocidile would be my pick.
I love Kojo. Calvin loves the color green. My little biter could use some stiff competition from a crocodile. What a cute, snuggly friend for all the traveling that we do! I love the adorable pillow/blanket packaging...what a fun concept!

So cute. Ping the Panda!
Rhaxma the Rhino is so cute. It would be my choice.
Mashaka the Monkey is the cutest, but they are all cute! I will have to keep these in mind for the grandkids, nieces and nephews!

Taj the Tiger is so cute. Thanks for the chance to take one of these cuties home.
i like ping
These are great! I love Bobo.
[email protected] yahoo.com
How cute!!! I clicked on Hada the Hippo and was surprised to see it turn into a blanket. All my kids would love these (even my 8 year old), but Hada would be for my littlest one.
My favorite is Orazio the Orangutang
These are just so precious. I love the Jafaru The Giraffe and I know my son would love this one so much. Thanks so much and please enter me.
My favorite is definitely Ellema. He has such a handsome face.
My son is 2 1/2 years old and always looks forward to seeing the elephants at the zoo. It would make his day to get this little guy!
I am so thrilled that you are giving one of the zoobie pets away. I have been on there site many times, but unfortunately (even though they are a very reasonable price) I haven't been able to purchase one.
My favorite is the Wangombe the water buffalo!!! It's just too cute. I even got my husband to add it to his favorite, he wants to start buying these for christmas gifts this year for friends kids.
Thanks truly for this giveaway, I only hope that I'm chosen!!!
These are just adorable; are they not? I think he would like Rhaxma the best but personally, I like GoGo the Gorilla!
Now theres no need to worry when packing up the car, "Did I remember the blankie AND the toy?" because they're BOTH in one place. Maybe.
Lencho the Lion
You know, my kids have quite a few stuffed animals but nothing as cute as these little guys. I still have a stuffed elephant and bear from when I was a tiny little thing and it means so much to me tht I still have those peices of my childhood. I know my son would love Tama the Turtle.
Taj the Tiger -- what a cutie!
My choice is Tama the Tortoise!
AWWW! I LOVE PING THE PANDA!!! Ping has stolen my heart! Before Christmas of 2001, I had this huge panda bear animal- it was a gift from my dad (may he rest in peace), and I took it every where with me (even if I was a junior in high school!)
Hada the Hippo is so cute
I love the elephant and the turtle !
My son picks Kojo the Croc!
My daughter is a true Leo -- she would love Lencho the Lion!
Ellema the Elephant is my favorite for my little grandson who loves,loves elephants,he calls the elfadandts,toooooo cute,thanks

Khimba the Koala and Baby Kai are my favorite. So cute and cuddly.
I think Tama the turtle is my favorite. They are all cute.
Wangombe the Water Buffalo is adorable...but they are all so nice, love Ellema too! Thank you for this opportunity to win one of these beautiful Zoobie Pets! :-)
My son would love Lencho the Lion. He loves lions and bears for some reason. Thanks for the giveaway!
Khimba is my favorite.
hippo is great
tama the tortoise
These are so cute. I would love to win one.
So adorable! I absolutely love these little guys. I've seen them before, but have yet to actually see one in real life!
It's hard to pick a favorite, but Ellema is up there, as is Lencho! So adorable.
Oh! My grandchild will love one of these!
My favorite Zoobie Pet is Khimba the Koala and Baby Kai :)
My favorite is Lencho the Lion. My daughter would love this.
Ellema the Elephant is my favorite!(for my elephant adoring and somewhat obsessed daughter! :) ) These are such a clever idea! What a relief and comfort (and space saver!) they would be to have in the car!
hip hip hooray for the hippo!
What adorable toys. However, Winda the Wildebeast seems to be a good match for my granddaughter.
Bobo and Rhaxma are my favorites. So cute.
Ive seen these online a few times now and think they are just great. My favorite would be Bobo the Baboon. Love the colors.
Wow! I wish I had the time/energy/brain power to come up with a great idea like that!! I'd have to say that I think Hada the Hippo is my favorite!
My daughter would love Hada the Hippo
HADA the Hippo is my favorite - thank you for the contest
Hi, These "Zoobie Pets" are so cute! I have to say that "Poallu" is my favorite. I think part of that reason is that they are endangered and it really bothers me. Please enter me in your always delightful contests. Thanks, Cindi
Ellema the elephant (that blue is my daughter's favorite color and shade) and Rhaxma the rhino are my favorites
They're all so cute that it's hard to choose just one. I think Poallu looks the most cuddly though.
I'm totally into Lencho the Lion and Hada the Hippo. They are too cute!! I confess that my kids are kind of past this stage, but they would be perfect for my niece.
I love these. My youngest received the red monkey for Christmas. He just loves it. But now he is so into Elephants. Is the elephant new?
Lencho the Lion or Hada the Hippo are perfect for my daughter! I love them all though.
I saw these once before and thought they were genius and sooo cute! I like Ellema, but I think Tama the Turtle looks so cuddly and cute so she'd be my number one pick.
I completely agree! Toddler gear takes up so much room. Zoobies are too cute. My son would love Kojo or Lencho. A Zoobie would be the perfect companion when he starts daycare in the fall.
Such a great idea! I love them all, but I would go with Tama the Tortoise!
I just think these little plushies are so adorable! And the fact that it is a stuffed animal and blanket all in one is so convenient! My favorite right now is definitely Ping, the panda bear, as we are in the process of adopting from China. Too cute!
Winda the Wilda beast would be a great companion for my daughter on our next vacation! One less thing for me to pack in a small car!
I LOVE Zoobie Pets! We actually already have Khimba but I would love Ellema! We just came back from a trip and my daughter snuggled with the baby koala while I wrapped my self in the blanket. They are so soft and snuggly!
these are so cute!! ella likes hada the hippo!! probably because she is pink?!?!?
thanks so much!
moore.g at insideconnect.net
I've seen these before and thought they were a great idea too! I didn't know they had so many cute choices though! I can't decide between Lencho the lion, Hada the hippo, or Ellema the elephant. They're all adorable and I know my daughter would love any of them.
These are so cute. My daughter would love Poallu the polar bear or Khimba the koala bear. They'd also make great shower gifts.
These are super sweet. My 18 month old loves his cuddlies & his pillow, so I think he would flip over one of these. It's so hard to pick which one is the cutest...but I think we'd have to go for "Lencho the Lion".
I've had my eye on these for a while -- so cute and perfect for trips with my toddlers (as long as there is one for each of them; otherwise it would be chaos!). I can't decide if I like Hada the Hippo for my daughter the most, or Kojo the Croc for my son!
