Aurora, contacted me recently regarding one of their latest toys... Softy Soakers. Since I'm a big kid myself, naturally I said sure when it comes to testing out a toy. Yes, I know I'm a little big to be playing with toys, but secretly, I will give it to my fiance's nieces to enjoy.
Aurora, celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, is releasing a plush collection that loves diving into water in the summer as much as kids do. Simply place Softy Soakers in water and the plush expands from practically nothing into a full size, eight-inch plush animal. The initial collection includes the "Fanta-Sea" plush assortment, and based on the response from buyers at this year's winter shows, Aurora sees a huge hit in the making.
There's six animals total in the collection, and all equally as cute and fun. I received the Blue Alligator for review, and I have to say it was quite fun to test in the water. I ran the water for a nice bubble bath, and I tossed my new little friend in the water with me. It was quite neat watching it grow, and my cat tried to attack it! No my cat doesn't like water, but he likes playing with bubbles in the bubble bath... and he also likes anything that isn't his... my alligator!
I dried it with a towel, and it actually stays that size for a couple days. It eventually goes back to its regular size, so you can have more fun again. Okay, maybe I am a little too old for this toy, but I can't wait for my future nieces to play with it.
Want to buy your child one of these? Visit Aurora and buy one!
Thanks to Aurora, one lucky reader will get a chance to win their own Softy Soakers of their choice!
I received an item for review, for my honest opinion. I was not compensated for this post. All opinions are my own, and others may vary.
