Now Kids Can Wear Their Favorite Zoonicorn Characters

Now Kids Can Wear Their Favorite Zoonicorn Characters

At Play, At School and When They’re Sleeping!

The  new apparel products include onesies, bibs, dresses and tees and feature all four Zoonicorn characters, individually and together in a variety of colors. Featured on apparel by Rabbit Skins, Gildan and Next Level, all Zoonicorn apparel products are all 100% cotton, soft and durable, easy wash and wear comfort.
Love A Zoonicorn by Zoonicorn, Infant Short Sleeve Baby Rib Body Suit

A magical mix of zebra and unicorn, the Zoonicorns inhabit the dreams of young animals, taking them on amazing adventures to help learn important social-emotional skills. When the dream is over, the young animal wakes up feeling self-confident and with decision-making skills necessary to overcome whatever challenges they are facing. Zoonicorn features eleven music videos that introduce children to the characters and the Zoonicorns’ dreamland adventures.

Each music video shares a song about one of the animals facing a real-world challenge that frustrates them and seems impossible to resolve. When they fall asleep, they enter a kaleidoscope of color in the imaginatively vibrant Zooniverse where they meet the Zoonicorns. These magical Zoonicorns all have special skills. Purple Promi’s the master leader and organizer who can always cut to the core of a problem with her laser focus. Green Ene is a technology maestro, who amps up the crazy-cool with never-before-seen technologies. Blue Valeo’s super strength always helps him power through challenges, and Pink Aliel’s special ability to create anything she thinks of is matched only by her power to communicate...nonstop!

The Zoonicorns cleverly guide each dreamer through a whirlwind of fun-loving adventures, tackling obstacles, balancing emotions and discovering important life lessons along the way. At the heart of every solution is the one important truth—the power to solve any problem is inside of them. When the animal wakes up back in their own world, they are empowered. They don’t remember the details of the dream, but their heart remembers the lesson.

The growing line of Zoonicorn products continues to expand. In 2018, Zoonicorn and Jay@Play introduced new interactive Zoonicorn plush as part of Jay@Play’s ‘Wish Me’ brand. Other products include a picturebook, three interactive story apps and four games available for download and on the Zoonicorn website, iTunes and Google Play. 



“Zoonicorns captivate their young fans through positive messaging, which we have animated in fun musical adventures,” said Mark Lubratt, creator of Zoonicorn®. “It has been enormously gratifying to see how kids respond to these characters. We are thrilled that they will now be able to wear their favorite Zoonicorn, as well as watch, engage and play with them.”

The Bow Tie Brothers By Christopher and Jabez Jenkins @VoxPopKids

Vox Pop Kids’ newest novel is The Bow Tie Brothers, written by “kidpreneurs” Christopher and Jabez Jenkins. The story is an illustrated autobiography of how the two young entrepreneurs took a fun hobby with their mom and turned it into a business called Kings and Gents Accessories. The Bow Tie Brothers is an inspiring true story, integrated with definitions and math problems.
Bow Tie Brothers - The Story of Christopher & Jabez Jenkins - Ebook

Harrell says, “No matter what career a child decides to have, a solid knowledge of business is important, since business is integrated into every aspect of our personal and professional lives.” She adds, “Concepts like financial literacy and marketing shouldn’t be reserved for business majors and MBAs; you market yourself when you go on a job interview and you need knowledge of financial management to pay your bills on time and manage your money. Honestly, I’d rather see a doctor with a knowledge of business run a hospital rather than a businessman with zero knowledge of medicine.”


Harrell believes that kids are capable of learning about business in their early years of education. It is an essential subject, and Vox Pop Kids creates an attempt to bridge the gap between what is learned in school and what is practiced in life.

Vox Pop Kids LLC strives to teach kids the skills they need to be successful by providing children with educational materials like books and online courses that cultivate business acumen.

The History of the American Space Shuttle by Dennis R. Jenkins

The History of the American Space Shuttle 
by Dennis R. Jenkins
The History of the American Space Shuttle
The flight campaign for the American space shuttle began on April 12, 1981, with the launch of STS-1 from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, and ended on July 21, 2011, with wheels stop of STS-135. During the 30 years and 135 missions in between, the program experienced triumphs and tragedies, amazed the world with its orbital exploits, and was frequently the subject of admiration, condemnation, pride, and despair.

This book provides a detailed overview of the history of winged spacecraft and the development of the vehicle we call the "space shuttle," and provides a technical description of the orbiter, main engines, external tank, and solid rocket boosters. Two pages are dedicated to each of the 135 missions flown by the American space shuttle, including technical data, crew names, and photos of each mission.

 The Challenger and Columbia accidents are discussed, along with a discussion of what NASA did to fix the flaws and continue flying. The book concludes by covering the retirement of the vehicle and the delivery of the four remaining orbiters to their final display sites.

Dennis R. Jenkins  worked as a contractor to NASA for 33 years, mostly on the Space Shuttle Program in a variety of engineering and management roles. After supporting the first few space shuttle launches at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC), Mr. Jenkins spent five years activating the Vandenberg Launch Site in California before the facility was closed following the Challenger accident.  Returning to KSC, he supported recovering from the accident and a variety of special projects. During the late 1990s, he was the ground systems lead for the X-33 program.

Afterward, he managed a variety of upgrade projects at KSC. Jenkins spent 2003 on the staff of the Columbia Accident Investigation Board (CAIB), 2004 as staff to the President’s Commission on the Future of Human Spaceflight, and 2005 as the Verville Fellow at the National Air and Space Museum and then returned to KSC. In 2010, he began participating in the Orbiters on Display Working Group that planned the delivery of the Orbiters to their final display sites. He is currently the project director for the Endeavour exhibit at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Jenkins is the recipient of the American Astronomical Society’s 2018 Ordway Award for Sustained Excellence in Spaceflight History. Previous books have won many awards, including the 2015 Gardner-Lasser Aerospace History Literature Award from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- The book is beautiful. It would take a month to get through the whole thing but I was able to browse through and find so much to keep me interested.  I love learning all about new things and this was fun.  It is packed with beautiful illustrations and timeless moments. I think it would be the perfect gift.

Penguin & Moose by Hannah C. Hall
Available on Amazon 

Penguin has a problem--he doesn't know how to fly. He and his friend, Moose, try everything they can think of to get him airborne: balloons, treetop starts, cocooning like a caterpillar. But no matter how hard they try, Penguin remains firmly on the ground. At the end of the day, a tired and disappointed Penguin realizes that he has something better than the ability to fly--a friend that supports and loves him no matter what. Written by best-selling author Hannah C. Hall, this series debut celebrates the power of friendship. Children are sure to fall in love with the adorable Penguin and Moose.

Greta is a little girl who lives in a beautiful forest threatened by Giants. When the Giants first came to the forest, they chopped down trees to make houses. Then they chopped down more trees and made even bigger homes. The houses grew into towns and the towns grew into cities, until now there is hardly any forest left. Greta knows she has to help the animals, but how? Luckily Greta has an idea that will lead to the Giants and the animals working together in harmony. An additional section at the back explains that in reality the fight against the giants isn’t over and Greta needs the reader’s help.

This 64 page, hard-back, fully-illustrated, fairy tale is about an 11 year old girl named Desdemona that has grown up with dreams being as real to her as the waking world is to everyone else.

Raised in the small town of Remsy by her mysterious aunts and guardian teddy bear, Desdemona has always had a hard time relating to other children and adults outside of her home, and it's only gotten worse with every passing year. Her elaborate world of dreams starts to take on a very real life, and soon she is battling to save her dream of dancing from the clutches of the mad Maestro. If she can't help finish the Maestro's composition and free her dream, then she will never want to dance again.

Here is the first volume in the fully illustrated series, Desdemona's Dreams. This story is about the power and beauty of imagination, and how dreams shape the very world around us.

Life Vision VR has partnered with children’s author, Z.W. Mohr, to bring the first of his three-book multi award-winning series, Desdemona’s Dreams, to virtual life with the launch of the Desdemona’s Dreams app.

A virtual copy of the book itself is ever present in the app for children to read directly or sit back and listen to the author narrate the book while they’re mesmerized by the 3-D illustrations. Priced at $7.99 for the app and virtual book, Mohr and Life Vision VR have made Desdemona’s adventures accessible for this holiday season.  Also on Amazon.

Someone we can relate to, someone who shares their story, with vulnerability and without filters. With You Can Do All Things, Kate Allan, the artist behind TheLatestKate Instagram, has given us such a gift. In this book of helpful tips and inspirational illustrations, Kate reminds us that we are not alone.

Through her honest words, uplifting pictures, and actionable suggestions, Kate encourages us to keep trying and to keep going. View this book on Amazon!
