Say goodbye to the winter blues. Zebra Mix is stirring up fun with a new line of gorgeously designed organic baking kits that offer a host of fun learning activities for kids of all ages. Unfold the oversized, brightly colored Safari Baking Map®, place your mixing bowl in the center, and begin your adventure! Step-by-step instructions guide little bakers through the process. Along the way, enjoy an array of fun activities--science experiments, puzzles, mazes, art projects, fun facts and more--that turn an ordinary baking project into a full afternoon of quality time for kids and their parents.
Designed for kids ages 4 - 12, each Zebra Mix Baking Kit is out-of-this-world delicious and made with high quality organic ingredients. Enjoy all three crowd-pleasing varieties: Chocolate Chip Cookie, Brownie Bites, and Cupcakes with Frosting. At $5.99 per kit, Zebra Mix is just the thing for parents on a budget looking for high quality entertainment experiences for their children.
"What makes our products unique is that they were developed for and by kids," says co-founder Lisa Burgess. "We believe one of the best things about Zebra Mix is the emotional benefit--building self confidence, independence and the pride of accomplishment. It may just seem like a cookie making project, but kids are engaged in project management - and finding, managing and using information which is a life long skill. We see our own kids and hear it from our customers every day."
Learn, Explore, Create
What makes Zebra Mix so popular is the innovative learning instrument, a large foldout 18 x 24" Safari Baking Map®. Designed to make the baking process fun, engaging and educational, the Safari Baking Map works much like an interactive board game, using smart, colorful graphics and playful language to encourage learning, exploration and creativity. Kids follow illustrated, step-by-step baking instructions and enjoy a host of engaging activities. Conduct zany science experiments, solve a mystery or be the fastest in the Brownie Bites Time Trials - and don't forget to do the dishes, step 14! Each Safari Baking Map is double-sided with instructions and activities tailored for different age groups -- side one is for ages 4-9 and side two is for ages 9 and up, letting kids of all ages be an active part of the process from start to finish.
Zebra Mix was founded by Seattle-based parents and designers, Lisa Burgess and Brian Alm. Like most kids, their girls loved to bake; like most grown-ups, Lisa and Brian quickly discovered that scratch baking required too much pre-planning, too much supervision, and without sophisticated reading skills, their kids could not "own" the project. What's more, traditional baking kits didn't offer the learning or creativity they were after. That's when the creative duo began cooking up Zebra Mix.
Preservatives and Artificial Ingredients Get a Time Out
Each Zebra Mix baking kit is all natural and made with over 70% organic ingredients without any preservatives, artificial colors or flavors. Parents simply provide a few basic baking essentials, such as fresh eggs and butter, to stir up mouth-watering treats and a whole lot of fun. "The benefit of baking from scratch is that you can use all natural, organic and wholesome ingredients," says co-founder Brian Alm. "We wanted to be able to provide the same thing with our mixes."
