Zomsters are the cutest, friendliest monsters for the precious little monsters running around every mommy’s house. This brand new, mommy-owned children’s company opened in September 2011 and offers unique children’s products with a green message that kiddos all over will love.
The kiddos and I went to the Zomster’s website to check out these silly and creative characters. MESS immediately fell in love – first with Truman because he is an elephant and MESS loves all things elephant. Then, she spotted Samuel, and those three eyes brought her to giggles! The ballerina thinks George is just the best – with his wings and stripey horns. It’s funny that she liked George best too because she is my musical girl and so is George. George loves everything music – from the Blues to Rap. He is not much for singing and dancing, but he sure knows how to get down with the cello. He is currently composing a song for his pal Otis to sing, titled “We are Zomsters“. His lifelong dream is to play the headlining act at Zomsterspalooza someday! Big Boy was enchanted with Dewey, the sports star snail.
I liked Milo and Moe, the two-headed Zomster. Maybe because they are round-bellied (like me right now) or maybe it is their facial expression. All of the Zomsters have their own personality and character traits that make them as unique as your child!
Be green, eat green, live green. Zomsters strives to reduce, reuse, and recycle wherever they can. You’ll find this in all of the products that they make. They strive to minimize their impact by selecting local manufacturers and suppliers to reduce shipping and materials waste. They make safe, fun products for you and your family.
We received two Zomsters Art Blocks, modular blocks, easily hung on a wall or stacked on a shelf or a counter. Each Art Block is an open reproduction of an original digital illustration. They are printed on Fine Art Canvas with Epson Ultrachrome archival pigment inks rated lightfast for more than 100 years. Each canvas is mounted onto a museum-quality gallery panel with a 1-5/8 inch cradled birch plywood frame, and coated for UV and water resistance. Zomsters Art Blocks come in four sizes and look great hung on a wall or stacked in groups on a shelf.
We love the six-inch size paired with the four-inch Art Block; they are perfect for hanging or for sitting on Big Boy’s bookshelf. The first thing I noticed – beyond the perfectly adorable Zomsters – was the Fine Art Canvas on which each Zomster is printed. The colors are vibrant, and the texture of the canvas adds depth to the illustration. Each canvas is then mounted onto a museum-quality gallery panel. The wood is smooth and sturdy. I am so impressed by the attention to detail and quality in the Art Blocks.
Zomsters Art Blocks arrive ready to hang. They can also be displayed on a shelf, desk, or another surface individually or in bunches. Designed, printed, and assembled by hand in Snoqualmie, Washington.
We also received a pack of five Zomsters blank Note Cards. Zomsters Art Cards are made of 80 lb, 100% post-consumer recycled papers. The cards are natural; no bleach is used. Each card is an available reproduction of an original digital illustration and is printed with archival pigmented inks, making the cards water-resistant and lightfast.
After reading my posts, you might have noted that I am a paper junkie. I love a really good quality notecard, and the Zomsters Note Cards don’t let me down at all. The paper is sturdy and smooth – perfect for a handwritten note between friends! And check it out – that’s George! Isn’t he adorable?!
Zomsters Art Cards are blank inside so you can write your own message and are packaged with matching green 100% recycled paper envelopes. Five Art Cards w/envelopes are packaged in a biodegradable cellophane sleeve, sealed with a zomsters sticker highlighting the five different Zomsters characters inside.
Zomsters also makes a range of other products, with more products on the way. They offer stuff for your room like wall art panels, art prints, and calendars; and stuff for your kids like infant onesies, toddler tees, and infant knot hats; and stuff for your kids, you, or your friends like art cards & invitations, buttons and magnets, and 100% recycled aluminum water bottles.
My favorite part about Zomsters is that all of the products are made in the USA and are made from recycled and reused materials whenever possible – plus, the products are super cute and full of quality!

|Lauralee Saad loves homeschooling her three kiddos: Ballerina, age 8, Big Boy, age 6, and MESS, age 3. She enjoys sewing when she can find a spare corner to set up her machine and dig out fabrics, cooking and baking – especially if the kiddos are helping, and enjoying a good book after the kiddos have gone to bed. She is thrilled to be welcoming a baby girl into the family in March of 2012.|
