AURORA HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

I don’t know about you, but my daughter has a thing for stuffed animals. Aurora Gifts has some of the cutest stuffed toys around!

Aurora is the leading supplier of affordable, high quality plush toys and gifts, and YooHoo & Friends is one of Aurora's top selling product line.

YooHoo & Friends are based on endangered animals.

Aurora’s international toy phenomenon YooHoo & Friends™ aims to please kids and collectors with the release of uber-hip YooHoo & Friends dressed in 60s, 70s and 80s retro styles. The collection is fashioned after some of the most famous pop culture icons of those decades (think Elvis, Madonna, Travolta from Saturday Night Fever etc.). The medium sized, five inch “retro” YooHoo & Friends are available in seven styles including 70s Love, Punk Rocker, Pop Singer, Vegas, Flash Dancer, British Rocker and Disco Dancer. The larger, eight inch versions include Punk Rocker, 70s Love, Flash Dancer and Pop Singer. Both sizes make sounds when squeezed (MSRP: medium-$8.99, large-$14.99). YooHoo & Friends™ created the corresponding interactive website www.yoohoofriends.com, so kids and their parents can learn more about the animals (many endangered) and their natural habitats. Membership is free. On the site, visitors can play scores of games, download desktop backgrounds and coloring sheets, send e-cards, raise their own YooHoo & Friends character and much more. YooHoo & Friends is on Facebook (http://facebook.com/yoohoofanpage) and Twitter: @yoohoofriends. The brand is geared towards ages 5 years old to tweens, but can skew beyond that group (i.e.: collectors). Shop Aurora and YooHoo & Friends online at http://shop.auroragift.com.
Dreamy Eyes™ feature loveable expressions, big eyes and appealing cuddle material that just melts in your hands. 13 brand new styles include tiger, pony, pig, cow, lion, elephant, monkey, giraffe, cat, pug, Chihuahua, frog and lamb (10”, bean filled; MSRP: $12.99). Perfect for ages two and up! Visit Aurora online at www.auroragift.com or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/auroraworld. Shop Aurora online at http://shop.auroragift.com.
Get your “Grrrrrr” on with Aurora’s all new Paws Puppets. Nicely stuffed with velboa plush, ‘Paws’ are not your traditional sleeve puppet. The soft claws (not hard plastic) complement the paw pad detailing. The 100 percent soft puppets are available in six styles including White Tiger, Leopard, Black Panther, Bengal Tiger, Polar Bear and Lion (MSRP: $12.99). Aurora’s Paws Puppets are also great products for schools or sports teams with animal mascots. Ages three and up. Visit Aurora online at www.auroragift.com or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/auroraworld. Shop Aurora online at http://shop.auroragift.com.
One of Aurora’s best selling lines, Fancy Pals, features the original Pet Carriers -- a purse and plush animal in one. The plush animals are interchangeable – kids have fun mixing and trading the animals to other carriers. Three new styles include “Sweet…Sweet…Sweet,” a pink poodle in a heart shaped bag with the word “sweet” embroidered on the side; “I Heart U,” a purple kitten and fancy pink bag embroidered with “I © U”; and “Love” (pictured) featuring an adorable black and white puppy in a flashy pink bag embroidered with shiny hearts and the word “love” (carriers vary from six to eight inches in size, depending on style; MSRP: $12). Visit Aurora online at www.auroragift.com or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/auroraworld. Shop Aurora online at http://shop.auroragift.com.

Retailers know Aurora’s go-to monkeys with personality, lovable smiles and signature banana in the tail, Cheeky Charlie™& Carmen™, fly off store shelves. Three newer styles in the line include Cheeky Charlie “Rock Star” which features Charlie with a Mohawk, sporting a guitar and t-shirt (14.5 inches). Cheeky Charlie Surfer (14.5 inches) in a visor and board shorts is ready to hit the beach with his surfboard. Cheeky Charlie Zoo Keeper (14.5 inches), Wrangler Cheeky Charlie (pictured, 14.5 inches) and Carmen “BFF” (pictured, 14.5 inches) are some other top items in the line. Each monkey’s Velcro hands make “hanging out” easy! Ages three and up. All “14.5 inch” Cheeky Charlie & Carmen styles retail with a suggested price of $17. Visit Aurora online at www.auroragift.com or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/auroraworld. Shop Aurora online at http://shop.auroragift.com.
