The winner is…Polly!
Emma has a ton of stuffed animals. There are piles of them around our house, and I wasn’t sure if we really needed any more. But after seeing our Jumbies, Dingbat and Duckey, I realized that these were not your typical plush animals.
Dingbat is half dingo, half bat. And our other new friend Duckey, half duck and half monkey. How on earth did that happen?
This is the short story of how the Jumbies came to be. It is included in the booklet attached to every Jumbie along with a few other games and puzzles.
There were more babies being born than ever before.
The storks had to deliver them from shore to shore.
Some storks turned east when they should have turned 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 could not believe their eyes!
These Jumbies were quite a surprise!
Also attached to each mixed up baby is a POG, or Jumbie dollars. Each Jumbie is pictured on the head of the coin and on the tail are funny mottos related to each Jumbie. For example, Dingbat’s motto is, “Don’t be a Dingbat!”
Like with any other baby, Jumbies get sleepy after a while. Emma likes to put them down for a nap like the good mommy she is.
These are too cute. Not only that, but a lot of thought and care has gone into the details and back stories. They’re also the perfect size to bring along to Grandma’s house on Christmas Eve.
At $7.95, Jumbies are an inexpensive gift idea.
