YooHoo & Friends Review & Giveaway -Valentine Gift Idea

Thanks to a PR Connection my kids had the opportunity to review YooHoo & Friends™ which were created by Aurora World Inc.

This Valentines Day consider one of the 50 adorable plush animals representing animals such as the Barbary Lion, Iberian Lynx, Platypus, Yellow Tiger, Beaver, Macaw and more. Beside being just adorable with their big eyes and unique sounds when squeezed, they help kids learn about endangered species from ll over the world.

The Valentine “YooHoo Greetings” which combines the two most popular selling Valentine’s Day items – a plush toy and greeting card.  Showing its soft side, Aurora’s “I Wuv U” Bears and “U Make Me Wild” Monkeys are sure to tug at the heartstrings of your special someone.

Valentine’s is not the only holiday that YooHoo pets are great for, how about Spring/Easter, Halloween, Holidays, Birthdays, Graduation and more?

Each animal gives you access to an interactive website where kids can interact with their animals online while being taught about the animals on which the YooHoo & Friends line of characters are based in their natural habitats. The site also contains fun games, wallpapers, coloring sheets and more, with no activation codes required. From the press release:
Families are encouraged 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.” Site users 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 story is set in a forest called Yootopia, which features the “Tree of Life”. Kids join YooHoo & Friends on magical journeys that teach children to value friendship, harmony, honesty and courage.

The YooHoo & Friends line also includes four “WannaBes” featuring YooHoo & Friends dressed as other popular animals – pig, bear, frog and panda. WannaBes have removable hoodies.
Courtesy of Aurora World Inc. and Tellem Worldwide, my kids received two YooHoo & Friends plush animals to try out, review, and love. I also got a cute little pink and black skunk that matches my cell phone perfectly.
