Absolutely adorable! That’s how I would describe the toys I want to share with you today. Aurora World Inc. has some of the cutest plush toys and gifts for boys and girls that I’ve seen in awhile.
Children of all ages will melt when they see the gorgeous eyes and eye-catching colors of the YooHoo & Friends stuffed animals. As a parent I really appreciate the fact that these toys are also educational. Each YooHoo plush is based on an endangered animal! We received two 5″ plush YooHoo’s with sound; Shooga the Sugar Glider and the Pammee the Fennec fox. I am in love! The cute factor is way way up there and I know my daughter is going to love to find these in her stocking! Yes, that’s right, I haven’t given them to her yet, I couldn’t!
When I opened the box and instantly saw how sweet they were, I just had to save them for her to open on Christmas morning! (ask Super Genuis, I was so baby talking to them before they were even out of the box lol!) you might notice from the first picture that Shooga was a tiny bit upset about being packed away for another month, but she quickly got over it, and posed with a smile when I told her she’d soon have a little girl to love :)
Oh I just can’t stand how cute they are! I almost forgot – They make the cutest little whistling-chirpy-giggly sound when you squeeze their soft little tummies! Aww! Yoohoo & Friends plush toys are recommended for ages five to tween but I can honestly see adults collecting them as well. Some of the other YooHoo & Friends styles like the uber-hip YooHoo & Friends dressed in 60s, 70s and 80s retro styles are great gift ideas! They would really shine as part of a fun gift basket for a friend or even your child’s teacher!
Kids (and moms and dads) can learn all about YooHoo & Friends on YooHooandfriends.com where they can play games, watch YooHoo animations for the upcoming series, earn green coins to decorate a room for your virtual YooHoo, and even learn cool facts about the endangered animals each YooHoo represents. I made myself an account and can tell you that the games are fun, they should appeal to a wide range of ages. Also, You don’t even need an activation code, play is free with free registration, no purchase required!
Included in the package I also found a sweet little pink kitty – how pretty is she! Milly the “Pinkest Kitten” is so soft and fuzzy, she’s the perfect pink color for your little princess! Our fuzzy Milly kitty came in her very own vanilla scented cupcake carrier, Mmm, she smells delicious!
I noticed on the website that she’s also available in a chocolate or strawberry carrier, as well as several other dressed up styles! I know a little girl who is going to adore this Milly and cannot wait to give her to my five year old niece for Christmas! I think she’ll love toting Milly around the house or even using her cupcake carrier as a great smelling mini purse.
