I received product in exchange for my unbiased review.
Today we received four plush Zoonicorns ( think Zebra + Unicorn) and a Zoonicorn book. The book is nice sized and hardcover so it was super nice to hold during bedtime. My girls (first grade and preschool aged) absolutely love bedtime stories so they were super excited to have a new story tonight before bed. I love having my girls be excited about reading and being read to. The Zoonicorn plush dolls and the book together definitely added a lot of excitement to our bedtime routine tonight! The set we received (4 plush and 1 book) retails for $49.91 on the Zoonicorn website.
The pictures in the book are nice and captured my daughters’ attention. The story we were sent featured a bison who needed help going to sleep and since this is a very age appropriate topic for my preschooler I appreciated the emphasize on how to breath calmly, lay down, and go to sleep. There was even a picture of the bison holding one of the Zoonicorn dolls. The story was short and sweet, definitely one I would grab for those nights when you just want to get through bedtime. Just like the bison went to bed holding a Zoonicorn, both of my daughters are sleeping with their Zoonicorn dolls tonight.
The real hit for my girls were the plush Zoonicorns they could hold while hearing the story about them. All four were included so my girls each have 2. There is a pink, blue, green, and purple Zoonicorn. You can purchase the Zoonicorn dolls separately for $9.99 each or in the set like we received. I feel the Zoonicorn toys cover a good spectrum of different colors so if you only purchase one for a child, you have a good chance of picking one they like. My girls loved knowing what each of the Zoonicorns represented so we spent some time reading the inside cover about each Zoonicorn so they could memorize their names and what each Zoonicorn represented. The plush Zoonicorns are really cute, soft, and the perfect size to sleep with for a child or to bring in the car. I know my girls will spend tomorrow playing with their Zoonicorns and looking at their book.
In addition to the books and plush Zoonicorns, there is Web content that has Zoonicorn coloring pages, some interactive stories, and games for children. I appreciate that beyond the physical Zoonicorns, and the book there is even more content the enhance the experiences my kids have with the stories and their toys. Each of the stories focuses on a lesson, including: going to bed when needed, asking for help, and admitting you were wrong.
Zoonicorn has launched a series of interactive stories, games and apps for both IOS and Android. I downloaded the games and stories available for IOS for my girls to play with. I am excited to share the additional stories with them FOR FREE! While you can make purchases to unlock additional features of the apps, the actual complete story is FREE. I am excited to have more stories to read for bedtime the rest of the week with my girls featuring their new Zoonicorns.

Overall, I feel the set of Zoonicorns makes a nice gift and experience for children with the added benefits of the apps and coloring pages. This gift definitely encourages bonding time with children by making reading time entertaining and interactive. We approve!
