Aurora created YooHoo & Friends to teach children about animals (many endangered) and the environment from which they makes learning fun for them too. They are a large collection of cute fun stuffed animals with big bright eyes and adorable face.

Aurora World Inc. has launched a brand new web site for its best selling brand, YooHoo & Friends. The free, interactive virtual world at requires no activation code and is targeted to children 5 to 12 years old.

The “Design YooHoo’s Next Friend Contest” encourages children to submit drawings of who they think YooHoo’s (the original character from YooHoo & Friends) next friend should be.

We were sent 2 adorable YooHoo plush animals. YooHoo is the hero among his buddies. He is a courageous Bush baby from East Africa. These plush little cuties are soft and make a cute little noise when squeezed. They have been little tag alongs with my two youngsters, going where they go, they just adore them!

ONE "Mommy? I'm Hungry!" reader will win a 5" YooHoo & Friend's plush pal too!

Kookee, a fairy penguin! They prefer warmer waters which was interesting to me because I always thought penguins were found in cold climates. :)
