Zoonicorn exists to visit the dreams of young zoo animals who need help. Each Zoonicorn has a tag with its name on it. The magical creatures are white with colorful zebra stripes and tufts of hair. On their head is a yellow horn.
My two nieces, Zoe and Gia, have become attached to the Zoonicorns. Although Zoonicorns are general plush animals, I watched my nieces spend quite a bit of time using their imaginations and playing with them.

There are four Zoonicorns in the collection:
Valeo (Blue): The Zoonicorn leader who overcomes his shyness when meeting new friends and loves hanging out with his buddies near the Africa exhibits.
Promithea (Purple): Reliable and shy, Promithea epitomizes intelligence and gentleness and is the pefect secret keeper for all her pals.
Aliel (Pink): Spunky, fun and always zooming at full speed, Aliel is friends with every animal at the zoo.
Ene (Green): A charming practical joker who loves mischief and his naps!
A coordinating book, Buffy Meets the Zoonicorns, goes with the collection. The book tells of Buffy the bison who has angst over being around a crowd of other animals in the zoo. Buffy falls asleep and is transported to the magical land of Zoonicorns. There, Buffy plays with the Zoonicorns, eats tasty grass, rolls down hills, and is worry-free. Buffy finds that the Zoonicorns have helped take all the stress away and that all will be well by the light of day. The book goes well with the Zoonicorn theme and I think children will be excited to read it along with their plush pals. I'd like to see more books offered in the future.
Coming soon will be a Zoonicorn mobile app and interactive website. The Zoonicorn world will provide a fun, entertaining digital world where kids can play alongside their favorite animal through interactive stories, games and activities. Gia and Zoe are excited to see what that's all about when it debuts.
