MTV Geek Reviews ZombieZoo ZombieZoo Plush Toys: Cute and Creepy by Lemonjuice McGee in Toys
What’s the cutest thing you can think of? A kitten? A stuffed animal? How about a stuffed animal, shaped like a kitten, that’s stitched up in a rudimentary way which invokes thoughts of childhood, cartoons, and lollipops? Okay, yeah, that IS pretty cute! Now imagine that the very same stuffed kitten was an undead abomination… but a heart-warming one. Well folks, then you’d have ZombieZoo’s new line of undead plush collectibles. We here at MTV Geek are both excited, and a tad sorry, to be presenting these piles of rotting felt; not because they’re creepy, but because once you see them you’ll have to buy them all!
ZombieZoo is a hot new line of collectable plush toys from award-winning children’s author/illustrator Neecy Twinem, and is arriving just in time for the holidays. The ZombieZoo crew includes Boo the black cat, the natural born leader of the group, and Stich, a pig obsessed with hygiene. Along with their friends, Muck (Monkey), Rob (Rabbit) and Toxic (Snake), they stand at 12 to 15 inches high, are made of soft fleece and have a loveable “Frankenstein” quality of stitching adorning their bodies and over-sized heads. ZombieZoo dolls are available online and at specialty retailers with a suggested retail price of $18.99.
Great Review from TOMOPOP ZOMBIEZOO brings adorable animals back to life in plush form by Rio McCarthy on 11/18/2010
I could not be more ecstatic about this right now! I love animals, I love zombies, I love plushies and they're all rolled up into one! I present to you - ZOMBIEZOO. These adorable characters come to you from the fantastic children's author and illustrator, Neecy Twinem, who has worked on over 26 children's books. Funny that my jobs all come full circle at times, too. When I used to work at the library I shelved children's books on a regular basis and saw several of her books come my way, so this is especially exciting to see her have a plush series.
Each character has its own back story and interesting tidbits or quirks about them. It's a tough choice for me between which one's my favorite. I absolutely love both Boo and Toxic, although Toxic can be a bit of a handful sometimes. Boo is the natural born leader of the group that everyone comes to for advice. Toxic, on the other hand, is only concerned with winning anything and everything, but she's just too adorable so you can't get mad at that face!
You can pick up these little guys for yourself over at the ZOMBIEZOO website, where you'll find them for $18.99 each, or you can pick up the whole set for $89.99. If you pick up the whole set, or spend over $50 in the store, you'll also receive the debut poster, and all items are eligible for free shipping. Each plush is between 12 and 15 inches tall, so they're perfect for hugging and will make great gifts this holiday season! Head on over to the ZOMBIEZOO website now to learn more about them, and see just why I was so excited to see them hit my inbox!

ZOMBIEZOO is unlike any zoo you have ever visited. While it has exotic animals, gift shops, restaurants, moats, fences and a zookeeper, in ZOMBIEZOO, the animals are in charge. “The instant the Zombie critters become your guide, you’re on your way to adventure,” said Twinem. “Let them be your companion and muse. They’re cute and creepy, but never gory. You will be surprised to discover how cuddly these living-dead animals can be!”
