Aurora created YooHoo & Friends to teach children about animals (many endangered) and the environment from which they came...it 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 http://www.blogger.com/www.yoohoofriends.com requires no activation code and is targeted to children 5 to 12 years old. At the web site, visitors can learn about real animals and their environment, play games, send e-cards, download wallpapers, calendars and coloring sheets, as well as adopt and raise YooHoo & Friends. Additionally, “Design YooHoo’s Next Friend Contest” entries are being accepted now; the contest runs through May 31st. 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. Every entry, such as the “pouch rat” is posted on the Facebook fan page. Three winners will receive various prizes including plush toys from the YooHoo & Friends line. Aurora encourages fans of the brand to join them on Facebook and Twitter to see the submission and be the first to get updated on product news, events, and freebies.

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!
