Zipperoos has picked up a 2013 Tillywig Best Family Fun Award marking the first award for this unique new brand.

Here’s what Tillywig has to say about Zipperoos:

“Zipperoos combines 3 great playtime elements brilliantly. It’s a plush toy and a game, with a built-in zippered storage pouch that makes for a portable, self-contained blast of fun. Components vary depending on which Zipperoos you’ve got. There are two now available – Frantic Frog, and Monkeys Wild. Frantic Frog includes both a big and a small plush frog, and Little Hopper figures prominently in the action. Players deal out an entire deck of animal cards face down, then simultaneously flip their top cards up. The first player to spot a match (color or animal in 2-player games, animal-only for 3-4 players) and grab Little Hopper wins the cards. Play continues until one player has all the cards and wins. Monkey’s Wild includes 63 animal chips (monkeys are wild) to spread out on the table. Players take turns either taking a face-up chip or flipping a face-down chip (taking it if it’s one they need). First to collect 3 sets of 3 matching animals wins. Zipperoos is a triple-dose of fun for kids to have at their fingertips anytime, anywhere. For 2 or more players.”
