Every year during Christmas time the one thing I have a hard time shopping for and deciding on for my little “Bug” is by far the stocking stuffers….well more like box stuffers because instead of having a regular stocking we have always just gotten him a small size box (think shoebox) and let him decorate it with holiday stickers, glitter and such so that it’s personalized to him as he grows so it’s a chore to find just the perfect fillers for him, but when I happened to discover JUMBiES I knew these cute little “animals” would be perfect because he loves all things animals and unique and these are defiantly both!
About JUMBiES (Taken From Website):
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 were 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 at night. Other storks flew east when they should have gone west. Everything went wrong even though they were trying their best. Then in 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 very 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 Giraffaloes! 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 suppose 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.
I was sent a couple of JUMBiES to review for our Christmas Wish List 2010 and I could not have been happier with these little cuties arrived! I know they look adorable on the website but they are so much cuter in person and I just adore these little creatures!
We were sent a Duckey and a Leopird to review along with a mini comic book and some JUMBiELAND Sand Dollars and I can’t wait for my little “Bug” to wake up to find these in his stocking this year! He likes creatures like these and he has seen them online a couple of times and always said he needed some of those for Christmas so I know these are going to be a huge hit!!! I can’t wait to get him the entire set of JUMBiES!!!!
I’ve been playing around with these cuties and on the website and I honestly can’t find any cons to these toys at all! I love the creativity of each of the JUMBiE creatures and I just think they are wonderful and I have really enjoyed exploring JUMBiELAND and meeting each of the JUMBiES and exploring their world! “Bug” has been exploring JUMBiELAND along with me and he has really enjoyed checking out the games and all the JUMBiES as well! I feel that the JUMBiES we received are of high quality and I have a feeling that they are going to become the newest collectible real fast and in a hurry!
I love everything about the JUMBiES from their unique looks to their online world and the story of how JUMBiES came to be! I think they are just a really fun addition to the playroom and I’m really looking forward to seeing “Bug’s” face on Christmas morning when he finds these fun creatures in his stocking since he has been checking them out online and has decided that he needs some of them I think it’s going to be great!
