Zoonicorn began with an idea to create a unique, plush toy for children that would be a combination of an exotic animal (zebra) and mythical creature (unicorn). We also wanted to create a children’s book to go with the character which would be educational for kids and entertaining for adults.
We discussed our initial idea with many people and received a lot of positive feedback. After several revisions, we achieved the exact look and feel of our vision for Zoonicorn. That’s when our four characters were born.
People immediately fell in love with the concept.
Valeo is the oldest and a natural leader. He likes to give orders but isn’t as good at taking them. He’s athletic and loves to show off, but sometimes he can be a bit too competitive which makes him a poor loser. He’s always willing to help those in need and his bravery can see him though almost any situation. His favorite thing is strawberry ice cream, especially when it’s in a cone.
Having a warm and kind personality, Promi is a friend to everyone. She sometimes cares a little too much about her appearance; especially her mane. She is always patient and understanding but likes to do things her way. Seeing or receiving lilies are the best way to make her smile but keep all bugs, mostly spiders away from her at all times.
Being around Aliel is always exciting and fun. She will be your friend from the moment you meet. It is hard to keep up with her in conversation because she likes to talk, a lot. Sometimes she says things without thinking and can be a bit impulsive which can get her into trouble. Always looking for adventure, you will never be bored with Aliel around. If there is dirt or mud nearby you can bet she’ll find it and somehow, she always manages to lose the ribbons Promi puts in her mane.
Ene is the youngest and the most caring. He can be a bit shy and timid which makes him not always stick up for himself. Big words can be hard for him to say but he is learning. He is happy all with time and he gets along with everyone. Ene is a good listener and will always try his best to make you feel better when you are sad or troubled. Having to eat peas is the one thing that will bring him down, he would much rather fill his belly with string cheese.
