The best part about the Scribble Scrubbie line is that kids can design their own pet, clean off the design, and restart all over again! This set includes Toklo the walrus, Anji the penguin, and Ned the polar bear. Each pet is washable: Kids can scrub it clean in seconds with the included scrub brush and water. Kids can also fill the included tubs with warm or cold water to watch the pets change color. When the pet is submerged in cold water, it turns blue, and in warm water, it turns white.

Additionally, the set includes a snow explorer vehicle with rolling wheels so it actually moves. Kids can store the pets, markers, and accessories inside the vehicle, or use it as a storytelling element during play. The windows on the vehicle are open, but everything inside fits pretty snugly and doesn’t fall when moved. Don’t worry travelers, everything stayed in place during our rigorous shake test. The toy vehicle even includes a designated marker storage area that firmly holds each marker in place to avoid any loss while traveling — making it perfect for on-the-go creativity!

With the Scribble Scrubbie Arctic Pets Snow Explorer, kids can roll into arctic adventures over and over again!
