Sports fans! May I have your attention, please?
I’m so excited to introduce SoftJox to our readers just in time for the heat of the football season! SoftJox are your very own loveable sportsmen for your kids to hug and cheer on their favorite teams. Not only are SoftJox quality-made, but they are far softer than you could ever imagine and make quite the comfortable and adorable pillow to snuggle.
I met SoftJox owner and creator, Mike Friedman at a recent blogging conference and learned the story of how SoftJox came to be. He and his family were spending time with his brother’s family and they noticed how the children loved both sports and stuffies, but found that there wasn’t a lot of mixing of the genres – thus the idea for SoftJox was born! Next (and this is what I think is the coolest part of this whole story) the children started developing the concept art for the product! Design artists later used this concept art to draw and make this dream a reality!
It took four years for the final product – the footballer – to be finalized and created. The customizable aspect of this character is what makes it so much more special than it already is. Schools have ordered customized SoftJox with team logos or school logos for a fun and unique team gift. With more designs in construction, I can’t wait to see the future prototypes from SoftJox! (I’m anticipating the Hockey Player myself…)
As an educator, the idea of customizable sportsmen caught my interest. When I found out some schools bought them as end-of-season gifts for their sports teams, I immediately thought of my own students! How cool would that be for the kids to have a SoftJox of themselves! However, SoftJox are also awesome for children who are more interested in sports as a spectator. How cool would it be to have such a personal toy to express your interests?
They are super cute, soft and extremely loveable in person. I have to fight my dog for cuddle rights to them at night. I can’t say enough just how pleasant they are to squish. With soft, fabric and strong construction, my SoftJox have traveled cross the USA twice this summer and are staying strong! I’ve got my fingers crossed and hope to someday see a Martial Artist SoftJox!
Please visit SoftJox.com and see what they have to offer! I just LOVE my 20” Footballers!
