REVIEW: Ze Super Zeros – Zebu and Zola

IMG_8012

Background

Ze Super Zeros are hero friends whose super powers and problems blend. They have their pluses and minuses too - they're super special, just like you! Each Super Zero has a "mini" power and a related challenge that teach kids to embrace what makes them unique and find their inner Super Zero.

The line consists of six different animals characters dressed up in their super hero garb: a monkey, hippo, zebra, crocodile, mouse and koala. For purposes of this review, we’ll be looking at two of the six Super Zeros characters – Zebu the Zebra and Zola the Koala.

Tag

I decided to swap out the packaging category for tag, since very few plushies come packaged in a box anymore. The tags for all of the characters are the same. The small booklet features profiles for all six characters (in English and French).
