Popular Kids Gifts for Christmas7. Zoonicorn

The Zoonicorns represent a unique experience. Young animals are magically transported through their dreams to a wildly vivid and imaginative dream world, called the Zooniverse. Here they meet the Zoonicorns, a captivating cross between a zebra and a unicorn. The young animals are guided by the Zoonicorns, through clever and fun storylines, to discover life lessons and how their own inner-magic and power can help them deal with growing up. The Zoonicorns always know when a baby animal is in need of their help. They all have magical powers available to them through their horns, which activate with a deepening, golden glow and musical tone. But they use restraint when it comes to using them. The Zoonicorn’s main goal is to always show their young friends how to solve their own problems, adapt their feelings to match their situation, and overcome their fears – and not to rely on wishful thinking. The target age of the programming is preschoolers, ages 3 – 6 years old, both girls and boys.
