A few weeks ago we were invited to London Zoo by fab kids' travel product company Trunki. We were taken to meet our contacts in the Komodo Dragon exhibit. Sounds all a bit cloak and dagger so far, huh?
The reason we were there was to preview the new Snoozihedz and PaddlePaks Trunki were launching, and also to hear about Trunki's link up with ZSL and Bristol Zoo. The Komodo dragon exhibit was chosen because it was as close as they could get to a real life dinosaur!
The reason Trunki were interested in the dinosaur analogy is because Dudley the Dinosaur is one of their fantastic new designs for the superb SnooziHedz.
SnooziHedz are cute little cuddly characters which unzip to create an inflatable pillow and blanket, perfect for travelling with children. They also have the unique Trunki Grip feature, which prevents the blanket sliding off en route. Such a clever idea!
Even better, 50p from the sale of every Dudley will be donated to ZSL London Zoo to help them provide the best possible environment for their Komodo dragons, and to continue their research work with Komodos. There are also lion, monkey and penguin designs, with donations also going to help those animals at London and Bristol zoos.
Here's the Komodo dragon posing with his Dudley the Dino SnooziHedz
After we had looked at the lovely new SnooziHedz and the fantastic new PaddlePaks and BoostApaks, (and scoffed some mini cakes!), we had a rather wet wander round London Zoo, which I'll tell you about here.
The calm before the storm of bloggers and journalists arrived!
