ZaZaZoo is a Quebec company founded in 2015 by Mélanie Lafrenière, a Gatineau businesswoman who was looking for an activity to do with her nephew. Surprised on the limited options available she decided to develop an offering to fulfill this need and ZaZaZoo is born.

ZaZaZoo offers the rental of plush motorized stuffed animals in shopping centers and for special events. Children’s enjoyment is at the heart of ZaZaZoo’s identity and visits to the family shopping center are revolutionized. It’s on the backs of lions, pandas, elephants that families are now experiencing a unique entertainment experience. Parents and children enjoy a moment of pure happiness together in an accessible, fun and safe environment.

With its hybrid business model of corporate locations and licensees, ZaZaZoo is growing dramatically. This rapid expansion is supported by ZaZaZoo’s standardization of internal procedures and products. In fact, ZaZaZoo has created a comprehensive and easy-to-use toolbox for its licensees.

We believe in ideas where everyone can succeed. ZaZaZoo is a Win for the customer, the mall and ZaZaZoo!
