Aurora- Yoohoo & Milly Pets {Review & Giveaway}

What’s a Yoohoo? An adorable plush animal that’s both fun and educational. Based on Endangered species from around the world Aurora has brought these soft, fuzzy and plush animals into homes.

My girls really liked that you could squeeze their tummies and they made sounds. The two that we received for review the Lemmee Punk Rocker that makes a whistle sound when squeezed and the Yoohoo Love that makes a kissing sound have both been a big hit at our house! My thirteen year old sister has actually tried to steal the Punk Rocker from my little girls and my two year old is now walking around saying, “that’s Allison’s!” So they are big hit with the older crowd too.

My kids are big into technology and have gotten to the point that they think every stuffed animal should come with some kind of online code. While the Yoohoo friends did not come with a code they do have a fun and interactive online site where you can learn more about these endangered species from around the world. You can also play online games, print coloring pages, send e-cards to your friends and family, raise your own pet, decorate your room and find out the latest news and events on these cute little friends.

You can find Yoohoo & Friends on Facebook and follow them on Twitter for the latest news!

We also received two of the Milly kittens. Is there anything better for a little girl then a pink kitten? I think not. My girls thought these were the most adorable plush toys! These were also extremely soft and fuzzy. We received the Wanna Be Frilly Milly Ballerina and the Pink Kitty with Strawberry Carrier. My six year old loved the little kitten in the carrier so much she even tried to sneak it to school in her backpack today because she just didn’t want to part with it. I love that the carrier actually smells like strawberries too! Milly comes in different varieties of styles including Wanna Be Fairy, Wanna Be Princess, Happy Birthday Balloon (would make a great birthday present) and Happy Birthday Girl.
