We launched our third book in the Goldie Blox chapter book series with Random House! In honor of our brand new book, GoldieBlox and the Best! Pet! Ever!, we compiled an assortment of cuteness! Meet some of our best pets ever and get to know their adorable quirks:
Guardian: Nora, Marketing Director
Age: Exact age unknown but she’s approximately three years old.
How long has she been with you: She’s been with us for one year.
What makes her the best pet ever in my eyes: Constant love and affection no matter what’s going on.
A quirk that I love: Jolly goes crazy when she gets in long grass. It’s her version of catnip. She’ll also do anything for a belly rub!
Guardian: Stephanie, Customer Experience Manager
Age: Five years old
Breed: Border Collie
How long has he been with you: He’s lived with me since he was eight weeks old.
What makes him the best pet ever in my eyes: He’s amazing with my twin boys Lukas and Blake, and he’s the biggest snuggle bug.
A quirk that I love: We think he chewed off a piece of his tongue when he was little. That and his tongue is always sticking out.
Benjamin Cranklin aka Benji
Guardian: Cindy, Mechanical Engineer
Age: Two and a half years old
How long has he been with you: Two and a half years. I found him right outside the GoldieBlox headquarters when he was six weeks old. How could I not name him after Goldie’s very own Benjamin Cranklin?!
What makes him the best pet ever in my eyes: Benji’s loyalty. He is always by my side when I’m home and the first to greet me when I return. He’s learned to recognize the sound of my car and once I park, I see him pressed up against the window meowing.
A quirk that I love: Benji is a gatherer, not a hunter. I’ll find young apples (from the tree in my backyard) around the house. Once, he carried an avocado from the kitchen counter into the upstairs bedroom. Let’s say that fruit and vegetables can’t be left unattended in the kitchen…
Guardian: Diane, Social Media Manager
Age: Four and a half weeks old
How long has he been with you: Groot’s been my official feline sidekick since I first found him outside of the office. He was just one day old!
What makes him the best pet ever in my eyes: Kittens under two weeks of age rarely make it without their mothers. Groot’s will to survive is very strong. He’s been fighting to be here since day one and I really admire that.
A quirk that I love: He’s still growing and developing (he recently discovered his paws!) but I love the little kink at the tip of his tail that shakes like a little rattle whenever he gets excited.
Guardian: Pat, Controller
Age: Four months old
Breed: Chihuahua mix
How long has she been with you: Cookie is a recent addition to our household and it didn’t take her long to fit right in!
What makes her the best pet ever in my eyes: She loves to run and jump and is just an amazing little bundle of love.
A quirk that I love: She LOVES posing for pictures!
