Yoohoo & Friends Review & Give Away

I'd like to introduce you to the two newest critters in our home called YooHoo & Friends™ by Aurora World Inc. "Roarrrrrrrrie" (named by the ever creative 7 year old in our home) is a Barbary Lion with sound. She actually roars. Emily has taken a liking to the roaring lion. She likes to carry it around the house roaring along with it.

This is "hop-a-long" (yes, my daughter named this one as well), an Easter Yoo Hoo & Friends.
There are more than 50 styles in the line in a variety of sizes and themes: Valentine's Day, Spring/Easter, Halloween, Birthdays, etc. YooHoo & Friends teach kids about endangered species from around the globe. There's a corresponding free, interactive web site (no activation codes required) that teaches about the animals (on which the YooHoo & Friends line of characters are based) in their natural habitats; as well as a host of games, desktop wallpapers, coloring sheets and more -- the web site makes learning about these animals engaging and fun. Each plush piece also makes a fun sound when squeezed.

Aurora's Mission Statement is: To design, manufacture and distribute the finest quality, best valued, safest plush gifts in the world marketplace. Aurora pledges to provide excellent service, integrity and honesty to our customers, employees and associates. Today, Aurora maintains 12 showrooms across the United States, from Anchorage to Atlanta and everywhere in between. In addition to four headquarters and multiple factories around the world, Aurora participates in more than 50 gift and toy shows annually and its products are sold through more than 25,000 retail outlets worldwide.
