New Grumpy Cat Stuff

ZooHood is pleased to announce some new additions to our amazing range of animal themed stuff - a range of products featuring a certain cat. She's everybody's favourite frowning feline meme. She's probably, in fact, the most famous cat in the universe right now. In case you haven't figure it out yet, she's Grumpy Cat.

We've got various mugs and badges and some clothing on its way soon. There's a sneak peak below, but check out the Grumpy Cat stuff page for more.

A Beagle-Shaped B&B

The Dog Bark Park Inn, which ACTUALLY EXISTS somewhere in Idaho, USA, is built in the shape of a beagle. It's a B&B with 2 bedrooms and is in the shape of a beagle. The room's contents are all dog themed and, oh yes, did we mention: IT IS IN THE SHAPE OF A BEAGLE!

Someone buy us a ticket to Idaho please!

This Lion is a Poser

This lion is a poser. He knows exactly what the photographer is up to.

You're probably a human, so you'll never look this good. Sorry. However a good place to start would be to buy some of the clothing on our lion gifts and clothing page, which is full of lots of gorgeous lion stuff. One day, maybe you'll look this good.

More Animal Character Stuff

We recently received a large delivery of all sorts of animal-themed character merch (by which we mean various licensed products or merchandise featuring characters from TV and movies including hats, bags, and T-shirts).

If you've been keeping up with our blog, you'll already have heard about the new Sesame Street merch and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles merch available in our shop. Now we'd love to tell you all about some extra stuff featuring some different characters....

Adventure Time

Adventure Time is a Cartoon Network show, featuring the adventures of Finn and Jake, the latter being a talking yellow dog. It has a huge cult following, including among some adults, thanks to its seriously wacky humour and story lines.

The Adventure Time products we have include two Jake the Dog hats - one a warm laplander-style hat, and the other a cap with some ludicrous special features: bright yellow fur and a tail.

Each of these have already been selling well, so get stuck in quick if this is something you're going to want to buy.

Regular Show

In the same ilk as Adventure Time, Regular Show is another totally nuts Cartoon Network series which is appealing to adults as well as kids. This one follows the surreal misadventures of a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby.

It's these two characters that feature on the two Regular Show products that we've added. Both are super-warm laplander hats, large enough for adults. There's the Mordecai laplander hat (as shown over on the left) and the Rigby laplander hat.

Family Guy

Being an animal-loving bunch we're only interested in one thing and one thing only when we watch Family Guy: Brian. Brian is the family dog. He walks, talks and in most cases he is the only sensible one in the Griffin family. Oh and he's also partial to the odd dry Martinis.

Now that the introductions are out of the way, as you can see over there on the left we have a pretty awesome Family Guy Brian hat in the laplander style. It's big enough to fit adults and has a fleece inner lining to keep you nice and warm.

Scooby Doo

You all know who Scooby Doo is - he needs no introduction. Like the other products mentioned in this blog post, we have a Scooby Doo hat in the laplander style. It's likeness is spot-on, as you might expect for an officially licensed product, it's big enough to fit adults and has a fleece inner lining to keep you nice and warm.

TMNT - Ninja Turtles Bags and Hats

We have some seriously awesome new products to tell you about, but before we get started hit play on the video below...

After announcing our new line of Sesame Street Merch last week, we're pleased to announce another retro kids' TV brand to be added to our stonking great collection of animal-themed products. Jump for joy, order pizza, and yell "Kowabunga Dude!" at the top of your voice... It's the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Check out the products below.

The backpack in particular is seriously and turtley awesome. As you can see it comes in the shape of a turtle shell so can act as a cosplay or fancy dress accessory as well as your every day school/work/crime fighting bag. To add to the fancy dress thing, the bag comes with a pack of 4 masks - one for each turtle so that you and your friends can look the part when you're getting those bad guys.

The bag is also really well made, as you might expect from an official Turtles product. It has a padded back-facing side (see below), adjustable straps and plenty of pockets and divided sections inside the bag to keep your books and belongings nicely organised. Splinter would be proud.

The TMNT backpack is big enough for a teenager or young-at-heart adult. It's available to buy here: zoohood.co.uk/tmnt-backpack-shell-with-masks/

As well as the bags, we've got a bunch of TMNT hats for sale. There is one for each turtle character in the style shown below, and there are more hat styles coming soon. This TMNT hat is a beanie with the Turtle's eyes appearing at the front with a red, blue, orange, or purple mask, depending on which character you want to be. When it gets seriously cold, flip the mask down to cover your face like a ski mask.

The TMNT reversible beanie hat is big enough to fit adults as well as teenagers of big kids.  You can buy it here: zoohood.co.uk/tmnt-beanie-hat-with-mask/
