Meet the Joobles!
The Joobles are a lovable, huggable, wonderfully squishy bunch of organic cotton stuffed animals, ethically hand knit in small cooperatives throughout Peru and brought to life in the bilingual picture book Meet the Joobles! by award-winning children's author, Monica Brown.
Jiffy the Giraffe
Jiffy just radiates optimism and it's contagious to the rest of the Joobles crew. If any of them are frustrated about something, Jiffy is always there to talk them through the solution.
Kitty Katz is fiercely independent and likes to remind her Joobles friends that alone time can be just as satisfying as together time. She enjoys listening to music with her ear buds - she also loves how they feel in her ears - and loves all things outer space.
Roar the Lion
While you might not know it from his tough exterior, the other Joobles know that Roar the Lion has one of the biggest and softest hearts. He loves art and is passionate about protecting endangered species.
Racky the Raccoon
A bit mischievous and known to the other Joobles as a practical joker, Racky the Raccoon gets serious when he travels. He loves soaking up other cultures and finding hidden places off the beaten path.
Mel the Monkey
When the Joobles are looking for someone to lighten the mood or tell a good joke, they turn to Mel the Monkey. Mel's dream is to be a stand-up comedian, but when it comes to the rainforest, Mel is seriously passionate about protecting it.
Jody the Owl
Jody doesn't mind the stereotype of the wise owl, in fact she embraces it. But her wisdom doesn't just come from being a self-described bookworm. She's well-traveled and passionate about learning all she can from whomever she meets.
Flop the Frog
Flop the Frog is a bit of a busy body; so active and hard working he sometimes has a hard time sitting still. But when it's time to relax, Flop says there's nothing like a hike on a warm night to enjoy the symphony of crickets.
Pip the Dog
Pip the Dog has a hard time sitting still. He loves sports and exercise and has even been spotted chasing his own tail. The rest of the Joobles love his energy and the way he treats everyone as a best friend.
Huggy the Bear
Huggy the Bear is known to the rest of the Joobles gang as everyone's BFF, always encouraging everyone to be their best. Huggy also loves cooking and has been known to whip up a campfire feast for the entire Joobles crew.
