Aurora sent me a donation to send off to the charity of my choice and one to giveaway on my blog. They sent the YooHoo & Friends raccoon and fox.
Kids of all ages, young an old will enjoy the five and eight inch YooHoo & Friends characters. My son, especially loves the cute little sounds they make when you push on their little tummies. I had to snatch it right back out of his hands before he decided that it was his new toy. He sister already understood it was a donation so she was yelling at her brother, “It’s a donation bubbie”.
The 2010 introductions include the brand new 24-inch original YooHoo & Friends in pink and blue (MSRP: $109.99), which are great for rounding out retail displays. A birthday assortment includes two styles and each plays the song “Happy Birthday” when squeezed (5”, MSRP $7.99).
Aurora is another company that also includes a free, interactive Web site www.yoohoofriends.com with the purchase of one of the YooHoo & Friends plush animals. Actually, it doesn’t even require an activiation code. I encourage you to learn more about the YooHoo & Friends’ endangered animals.
“Fans everywhere write to tell us that the Web site makes learning about creatures in their natural habitats fun and entertaining for their children.”
When on the site, you can play games, download wallpapers, calendars and icons, watch previews for the upcoming YooHoo & Friends animations and adopt and raise YooHoo & Friends. The YooHoo & Friends are forest creatures and their story is set in a forest called Yootopia, which features the “Tree of Life.” Your kids can join YooHoo & Friends on magical journeys that teach them to value friendship, harmony, honesty and courage. Which are life lessons we all need to learn and practice.
