Check out Zylie & Friends and the, Kiki the Koala's Kickstarter campaign #Giveaway


Kids seem to grow up too fast these days, and Zylie & Friends, what to do something about it. Kids are only kids for a short amount of time, and they should enjoy the time as a kid, by being a kid!  Zylie & Friends, mission to "unplug" playtime from screens and bring really great toys back to childhood. 
We were tired of the toy aisles getting cluttered with more kids tablets on one end and increasingly over-sexualized, gender-stereotyped toys on the other, so Zylie & Friends decided to do something about it!
There are two great Zylie & Friends stuffed friends available at this time Zylie, the Bear, and Shen the Panda. There is a new friend that just may join them soon with your help with this new Kickstarter campaign, a campaign to help get the newest character Kiki the Koala off of the ground:



Kiki is the latest in a series of adventure teddy bears designed to "unplug play" for kids ages 4-9. Created by a mother and son team. Kiki the Koala is the newest character in the Zylie & Friends series of adventure teddy bears. 

Zylie and her traveling Friends combine the best qualities of dolls, stuffed animals, action figures and storybooks to inspire kids to "unplug play" from screens and go on adventures of their own. In short, these doll-shaped adventuring animals are not your average teddy bears!
Why Kids--and Future Innovators--Need Kiki!

Here is a little more information about the inverter, of Zylie & Friends, Mary Beth, my name is Mary Beth and, when I was a young mother, I noticed how much time kids were spending in front of screens instead of playing. Now, my son Matt and I have decided to do something about that, because screen time for kids has exploded to almost 50 hours per week and play has declined by up to 12 hours per week. And while that might sound trivial, play is super important to so many things in young children, like brain development, building creative problem-solving skills, confidence, collaboration and leadership.

Would you love to be able to  own Kiki? Please consider giving to this Kiki the Koala's Kickstarter campaign, every little bit helps.
