The Zoobies team has worked hard to bring the lovable Storytime Pals to life. Among these playful friends is Margret and H.A. Rey’s classic Curious George. Curious George, along with Olivia, Spot, Paddington Bear, Goodnight Moon Bunny, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar, are 3 in 1 plush pals. Each soft toy folds out into a pillow with a uniquely printed coral fleece blanket zipped inside. Storytime pals are great for snuggling while reading the character’s story.
Thousands of NEW showroom square feet opened their doors for the first time in Chicago, offering buyers even more NEW product with exceptional show deals and incentives.
“January was such an uplifting show in sales and everyone’s moods. Customers were ready to buy and bought more lines to try out. I think there was good synergy between the mart events and marketing and the customer. People noticed and commented on all the little details.”
– Blanch Nastovski, Sarm & Nastovski

Easing a child’s fears of the dark is one of the toughest challenges many parents face. Night terror disrupts the entire household and can be extremely difficult to overcome. Creating a peaceful bedtime ritual that allays these fears is easier with products that shed some light onto the problem and induce sweet dreams. Scary monsters don’t dare stick so much as one treacherous claw out of the closet when luminous night lights from Cloud B, Heritage Mint, Boon, Inc., and Pink Magnolia cast their protective spell over a room!
