What sort of fun adventures is your child having this summer? Besides going to summer camp and attending ballet, swimming and gymnastic lessons, DD will also be taking a summer trip. We are still working out the details but we are excited about our trip. DD is also excited that Zylie the Bear will be traveling with her.
When Zylie the Bear and Shen the Panda arrived at our home, DD could not wait to open the boxes. Yes, she was that excited. Knowing that she would be running off with her new toys and it will be awhile before I see her again, I asked her to stand in front of the boxes so that you get an idea how large the bear and the panda are.
Zylie the Bear and Shen the Panda came with complete outfits, books, and accessories. The first thing I noticed about them was how well made they were. Besides being high quality stuffed animals, the details on the clothing are amazing. For example, I could not believe that jacket Zylie is wearing is fully lined. Even DH commented that Shen the Panda is wearing a nice leather jacket, lol.
Both the panda and the bear come with their own passports, so that you can register their unique codes on the company website. They also come with books that your child can read. Because the bear and the panda are most appropriate for children 6+ years old, DD is not quite old enough to read the books on her own yet. However, we have been reading chapters of the books to her and she really enjoyed listening to Zylie and Shen's travel adventures.
We think it's wonderful that DD can listen to the stories and dream about all of the places she will be able to visit someday. She is especially fascinated by Shen's trip to China. She has been asking us to take her there and we promised her that one day we will vacation there.
In the meantime, we know that no matter where we decide to go on our summer trip, DD's new friends will be traveling with us. We can't wait to create our own stories and adventures with Zylie the Bear and Shen the Panda.
Check out this adorable video of Zylie the Bear!
