JUMBiES {Review & Giveaway}

 

jumbies The Story of JUMBiES:

There were more babies being born than ever before. The storks had to deliver them from shore to shore. There were baby elephants, bears, dogs, and cats. They had tigers, skunks and even baby bats!

You could also find raccoons, deer, mice and whales. There camels, sharks and dinosaurs with long tails. There were koalas, kangaroos and chimpanzees. The storks had all kinds of fish and even bumblebees! They had to deliver them in the north, south, east and west.

There was so much to do they had little time for rest. They flew to America, Europe, Antarctica and down under. They went to Africa and Asia trying not to blunder. There was not a place on earth where the storks did not fly. everywhere in the world the storks filled up the sky. They had to move real fast for there was no time to be slow.

It began to get very confusing on where they had to go. Some storks turned left when they should have turned right. Some storks flew all day when they should have flown all night. Other storks flew east when they should have gone west. Everything went wrong even though they were trying their best. Then it began to happen in a flash! One by one they started to CRASH!!!!

The storks smashed right into each other. It kept happening one after the other. They crashed in the clouds up in the air. There were stork feathers everywhere! They landed in the water, the trees and in the dirt. It was a miracle that none of the storks were hurt.

Then they quickly went to see if the babies were okay. The babies were fine but the storks did not know what to say. When the storks crashed and tumbled, it appeared all the animal babies were jumbled! The storks could not believe their eyes. These babies were quite a surprise. They still looked lovable and sweet. But they were very different from their head to their feet.

There were no more zebras or elephants. But they found lots and lots of Zelephants! They looked for giraffes and buffaloes. But the storks only found Giraffoloes! These jumbled babies became a new breed. So they called them JUMBiES the storks agreed.

There were no lions, tigers or bears anywhere around. But they found thousands of these JUMBiES on the ground. Even bugs, birds and fish were not the same. The storks had to take all of the blame. Now since all the babies were a jumbled mix. The storks had a problem that was not easy to fix. It was not clear where these little ones were supposed to go. These babies were jumbled up so the storks did not know. They took the JUMBiES to a place with palm trees and white sand. The storks called this beautiful island JUMBiELAND.

But the JUMBiES still needed homes where they could be cared for. So the storks flew everywhere on earth and knocked on every door. The storks found homes with loving girls and boys. The JUMBiES have given them many new joys.

But there are more JUMBiES that still happen every day. They too need homes that give them love in a special way. The storks continue to find homes for them like yours and mine. The JUMBiES need your special love because they are one of a kind.

When the JUMBiES arrived on our doorstep I brought our package in and hid them somewhere in our house. After reading the story to my girls they were very excited to adopt a JUMBiES pet. I told them that they’d have to search high and low because the stork didn’t know where they should go- LOL look at me that story has gotten me into a rhyming mode :). My girls are really good at hide and seek so they loved the game and found the JUMBiES in no time! They were excited to find a Horsefly (Horse + Butterfly) and a Leopird (Leopard + Hornbill Bird) friend in our home. The story definitely helped set these little stuffed friends apart from any other stuffed animal. I also love that the idea is fun and unique they aren’t just another little stuffed animal to add to our huge pile. My girls have been keeping very good care of their animals and have enjoyed having them in our home.

They also came with little Sand Dollars the official currency of JUMBiELAND with each different JUMBiES pictured on them. I LOVED these Sand Dollars because they reminded me of Pogs that we used to play with when I was a child (anyone born in the 80’s will know what I’m talking about!). We received a huge stack of them so it made me want to play!
