“SnooZzoo” The First All-In-One Stuffed Animal Sleeping Bag Launches Nationwide
Combination children’s sleepover bag includes backpack, sleeping bag, pillow and travel case
Pittsburgh, PA – February 10, 2015 – So your kid is going through the animal phase. Trips to the zoo, plush animal toys, and wildlife books just aren’t enough. They want to be an animal. Meanwhile, they’re reaching that age when slumber party invitations are flying in and there isn’t enough room to pack everything they need in one bag. From sleeping bags, pillows, pajamas, toothbrush and treats – how can parents keep it all together?
The solution? SnooZzoo, the first all-in-one children’s sleepover bag that includes a sleeping bag, built-in pillow, backpack and travel case, all in the shape of your child’s favorite animal from the zoo. In the form of six different animal friends – brown bear, panda, hippo, lion, polar bear and monkey – children completely immerse themselves inside the large, stuffed animals for a cuddly, cozy snooze. Children love placing their arms and legs inside the limbs of the large SnooZzoo animals and snuggling inside the soft interior. When it’s time to rest, kids climb in their plush SnooZzoo, open the velcro paws and use the soft animal head as a pillow.
Packing is easy with SnooZzoo as all of their sleepover needs are stored in a special “food source” travel pouch inside the animal’s tummy. Each food source pouch is unique to the child’s favorite animal including bamboo for a panda, banana for a monkey, fish for a brown bear and polar bear, lily pad for a hippo and meat for a lion. The travel pouch stores all of their slumber party needs while teaching a valuable lesson about the animal’s habitat and offering opportunities for parents to teach kids about environmental conservation. When they are ready to pack up, simply button the SnooZzoo animal’s paws together and children can wear the animal as a backpack – giving their SnooZzoo the ultimate piggyback ride!
When your child isn’t using their SnoozZoo, it lives in their room, sitting upright and offering a soft place to snuggle, read books, or take a snooze.
“So many parents deal with the annoying task of getting their children ready for a sleepover, whether going to Grandma’s house or visiting a friend from school,” says Cameron Jones, inventor of SnooZzoo. “We designed SnoozZoo as an easy solution for parents to store all of their children’s sleepover belongings in one bag, but also as a plush stuffed animal for children to keep and love for years.”
And inventor Cameron Jones knows his animals! He grew up in Brisbane, Australia, near the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, founded by his grandfather as the first, and largest, koala sanctuary in the world. Lone Pine is home to more than 130 koalas, plus dingoes, kangaroos, Tasmanian devils and more of Australia’s iconic wild creatures. Cameron moved to the U.S. as a boy of 11, but the memories of animal friends Down Under left him with a lifelong passion for wildlife conservation and inspired his creation of SnooZzoo, a passion sure to grow in the dreams of every child with their own SnooZzoo friend.
Available in two different sizes for children up to 54 inches tall, each SnooZzoo comes with an educational story card containing information specific to each animal, as well as a personalized name tag so children can name their furry friend. Both SnooZzoo sizes also include the food source travel pouch appropriate to the animal friend they choose.
Pricing and sizing information includes:
• Small, for kids 36-48” tall, $99.95
• Large, for kids 48-54” tall, $119.95
SnooZzoo is a proud supporter of the Zoological Association of America (ZAA) and will donate a portion of sales to the ZAA Conservation Fund which promotes responsible ownership, management, and conservation of wildlife. For more information about ZAA, visit: http://zaa.org.
