Penguins At The Zoo With Flipeez Hat

About two weeks ago, we finally went back to the zoo. We hadn’t renewed our membership and hadn’t gone to the zoo all summer! We knew we had to go back though, when the penguin exhibit opened. All of us love penguins and we were so excited to see them.

The zoo has 4 types of penguins – King, Gentoo, Humboldt, and Rockhopper – and they are all adorable. Even more adorable though is my cute littlest boy watching the penguins in his awesome Flipeez hat! We received this cute and comfy Peek-a-boo Monster hat from Idea Village and though they are one-sized-fits-all, Simon quickly adopted it as his. From the makers of Stompeez, the slippers that pop-when-you-walk, Flipeez come to life when you squeeze the puff ball in the tassel.

Since Simon doesn’t stand still for pictures, here is Gabbie demonstrating the hat with the arms down, and then (partly) up! You can also see them up in the top right picture of Simon above.

We all really love the hat and love how cute it looks on Simon!

We received this product in return for our review. No other compensation was received, and all opinions are our own.

I literally just saw the commercial for these hats yesterday and thought they were adorable. And was actually going to look into as stocking stuffers for the girls. So thank you for sharing it here today, because now I definitely am going to get these for them after seeing your take on it!! And Gabbie looks adorable!! :)

Janine Huldie said...

I am so going to Target to see if I can find them now. Thanks :)

Such a cute hat! Penguins are my zoo favorite too!

I wish our zoo would get some penguins. Scratch that! I wish we had a zoo less than 2 hours away. THEN I would wish for some penguins!

I have been seeing these hats everywhere. I'm surprised Collin hasn't asked me for this yet since anytime we see the stompeez commercial he asks for those slippers. Simon looks adorable in them.

I haven't seen penguins in a couple of years. I think I need to go to the aquarium next spring. Ha I'm already planning a spring 2014 bucket list.

The hat is awesome. Des is at a stage where he doesn't keep hats on, however, Scarlet is past that point so at least I know it's coming.
And we all love penguins. And what's weird is that as I'm writing this comment, a line from Scarlet's TV show just floated up to me. "Hey, I'm a penguin!" Weird! She's watching Caillou so I'm hiding from it.

They have those on an end cap at Wal-Mart and Quinn laughs at them every single time we go.

thanks!

Dara said...

thank you! I love Penguins!

Dara said...

we'd be very sad if we didn't have a zoo close by!

Dara said...

which aquarium do you go to? we used to go to the NY aquarium sometimes.

Dara said...

there are some cute ones for little girls too!

Dara said...

they are pretty funny!

I LOVE Penguins! We don't have any at our local zoo, but I found an app from the CA Academy of Sciences that lets you watch the penguins live. Yep, there's an app for that :P

Dara said...

aren't they so cute? and that's so funny about the app!

I'm so excited penguins have made their way to KC! My nephews checked them out a few weeks ago and fell in love with them. I can't wait to take a peek at them the next time we're in town.

Dara said...

you must have a long list of things to do when you visit! I'd love to meet up at the zoo or elsewhere when you do come! :)

Desiree @ Macke Monologues said...

Absolutely!!

How cute are they?? Penguins are awesome. I think we are going to take Rey to the Phoenix zoo this weekend. It's a big one so hopefully they have some penguins there!

He is such a cutie! The hat looks cute on Gabbie too!

Dara said...

penguins in AZ? hmmm... :) Actually some of these guys are warm weather penguins so it's totally possible!

Dara said...

thanks!

I haven't been in years but we go to the NY aquarium. Last year I wanted to do the aquarium for my birthday but it was closed due to Hurricane Sandy. It still was dealing with water damage 6 months later.

I just saw those hats in a Bed, Bath, and Beyond catalog today, I was thinking that it looks like the kind of thing my baby sister would wear...

Dara said...

you should get her one! :)
