Every child loves stuffed animals. Some people carry that into adulthood as well. For example, my Mom collects teddy bears (just for display; she doesn't play with them :). While I am not into collecting plush toys as much as my Mom, every once in a while I see one I like, and think "well, why not?"
I recently found a teddy bear that is very unique, in that it is designed to be dressed up and played with, just like a doll! (I think my Mom would still probably like a Zylie bear to display in her room!) I was sent the Zylie and Shen kits for review, and these are an adorable idea for children! Zylie is a brown teddy bear, and Shen is a Panda. Both are 18 inches tall The Zylie kit comes with Zylie (who is jointed), dressed in her signature flounce top, jeans and a white coat. She also has an orange tote, packed with her journal, map and passport; the first book in the Zylie Adventure Series is also included! Zylie is a soft caramel brown color, with button eyes and an embroidered nose and mouth. Classic cute teddy bear looks, but with a fun design so kids can play with and enjoy Zylie even more!
|Zylie and Shen come in matching boxes.|
Shen comes to you wearing a green t-shirt, jeans and a black leather jacket. He brings along his backpack, which holds his passport and drumsticks, and the 2nd Zylie Adventure Series book is included! I have to admit I think Shen might be a tad bit cuter than Zylie; of course, since I have always loved Panda Bears, that may have something to do with it :)
He is so cute with a white face and black patches around his eyes...simply adorable!
"Zylie is the toy I wish I could have had for my daughter when she was young. Sarah only liked playing with stuffed animals, but would see her sister Kate's doll clothes and want to dress up her teddy bear. So she'd stuff the bear into the doll clothes, and it all ended up looking ridiculous. I wondered then why there wasn't a toy that was cuddly like a teddy bear, but could be dressed and played with like a doll.
And from that idea Zylie was born. My son Matt and I have gone about creating a world of fun and adventure around Zylie, with a series of fun children's books that follow Zylie on her global travels, several fashionable new outfits for the bears, new friends like Shen the Panda, and most importantly, a strong role model for kids in the characters we create.
