There is a new best pal in our house – and it’s the stuffed, non-human variety.  The other day the mailman delivered a very special box!

Meet Zylie the Bear.  Zylie is not your average plush pal.  She is a stylish, poseable bear with some serious forever-friend-potential.  She arrives rocking some denim, a cute top and a fleece jacket.  Her little knapsack is perfect for holding her passport, world map and notebook. She also comes with a hardback storybook that tells all about her adventures in New York City.

Zylie is all about ADVENTURE! She loves to travel and learn about the places that she visits.  She reminds me a lot of a certain red headed 5 year old girl, who was only too happy to help me with this review.

Lily unpacked Zylie and literally squealed at each and every accessory that she found in the box.  She kept repeating over and over, “She is just so beautiful!  She is the MOST beautiful bear I have EVER seen!”

Lily and Zylie were instant friends.  Bob and Lily poured over the miniature passport, map and notebook, talking about the trips that Zylie must go on and reminiscing about some of our own family vacations.

Lily decided that for their very first adventure together, Zylie would accompany her to swim lessons the next day.

She prattled all about how much fun it would be as we got ready for bed.

This morning Lily woke up, and I figured I would have to remind her to get Zylie as we headed off to swimming.  Oh, no – that was not the case.  Lily came out of her room, carrying Zylie and did not put her down all morning!

Before long we were packed and out the door…

And swim she did!  Lily that is.  Zylie had a grand old time watching Lily and her cousin splash around during lessons, or “Mermaid Training” as we like to call it.  🙂

On the way home we talked about what Lily liked most about Zylie and she asked if she could make a video to “tell everyone about what a cool bear she is.” I swear this kid is destined for a life on the stage or in front of a camera – she’s a natural!  So here is Lily, telling you all about Zylie in her own words.  This video is completely unscripted and was our very first take – not even a practice round!

Where can you find Zylie?  Zylie The Bear is available at all Toys R Us locations and at FAO Schwarz on 59th Street & 5th Avenue in NYC.
