I may be 29 (cough… for the past several years), but I still happen to love plush toys. There is something about a cute cuddly stuffed animal that still warms my heart and brings a smile to my face. My two kiddos also share my adoration for stuffed animals and the first place they are gravitated to in a toy store is the fuzzy critter aisle. Between my children and myself, we have a rather extensive plush toy collection. Each toy is treasured and most of them are tied to a significant sentimental occasion or event. Some of the plush toys even have a hidden meaning behind them and when I pick one up, it brings back a fond memory.
I would like you to become acquainted with two of the newest additions to my families plush animal collection. These two little snuggly cuties come from the Aurora Plush Toys YooHoo and Friends product line.
The Squirrel is 8″ tall, reddish brown, has big pink eyes, white accents, and when its tummy is pressed makes the sweetest little “chitter” sound. My daughter said the sound was addicting and couldn’t keep her hands off its soft belly. Too cute!
The YooHoo Bush Baby is 8″ tall and cream colored with a long fluffy striped tail. The huge eyes, super soft fabric, and cute funny sound when its belly is pressed makes it stand out from other plush toys and a family favorite. The one I received to review had a purple tail and makes a “whistle” sound. There are other colors and sounds available for purchase such as pink (giggle), yellow (chitter), and blue (boing). The plush toy is recommended for children ages 3 and up, but I let my son who is almost two play with it, under my FULL supervision and he loved it!
The Aurora YooHoo and Friends are based upon real animals from all over the globe. Some of the darling animals are even endangered species! Their huge eyes and long fluffy tails are creating smiles and successfully winning the hearts in children of all ages. Each one of the YooHoo and Friends, just like all of Aurora’s plush toys and gifts, are quality made, affordable, and make an excellent gift.
To expand the Yoohoo and Friends fun play even further, Aurora launched an online virtual world inspired by the plush toy line geared towards children ages 5 through 12. The website features character’s that resemble real animals living in their natural habitats and is a great way to introduce and bring about environmental education to youngsters. The website is completely free to use and does not require an activation code for entry. Members can watch upcoming YooHoo animations, adopt and raise YooHoo and Friends, decorate pet’s room, play games, download colorful wallpapers, learn about endangered animals, and more!
Aurora Naturally is a wonderful eco-friendly and “green” plush product line. Each plush toy is crafted from 100% soy fiber and stuffed with %100 Kapok. Kapok is a soft luxurious cotton-like substance that is well known for being hypoallergenic. The silky fiber comes from the seedpod of the oldest and tallest tree in the rainforest called the Kapok or Ceiba Tree. All of the Aurora Naturally products are handmade in Indonesia, come with a recycled paper hang tag, and a sewn cotton label. Take a look at a few of the cuties available…
