Aurora Plush Review and Giveaway

Aurora, known as the makers of Yohoo & Friends, is also the maker of fantastic plush animals and dolls. I’ve had the pleasure to review  Roary Lion Dreamy Eyes, Wrangler Cheeky Charlie and Carmen monkeys. We are plush collectors and know the difference between cheaply made and the good stuff. Aurora only manufactures well constructed plush that can be used as toys or as collectibles.


The attention to detail, the cute and squeeze factor keep children and adults alike fans of Aurora. They also come up with new ideas that are humorous and fun. Aurora Plush 10″ Dreamy Eyes Lion “Roary” has the most lovable eyes I’ve seen. His mane is even bigger than the photo on Aurora’s website. My daughter and I had fun playing with his mane and making it into a punk hairstyle! You can have him pose for you as his legs have a bean bag quality to them. Priced at $13, he will remain a pal for a long time in our house.

Aurora Plush 14.5″ Wrangler Cheeky Charlie is a sheriff who will ambush you with love! His outfit is removable (except for his hat) and he can barely keep his chaps buckled because of his chubby tummy. There was an issue with the stitching on one of his pockets coming apart, but once you let Aurora know of any problems, a refund or return will be made without any charge to you.


Aurora Plush 14.5″ Carmen BFF is a sweet girl monkey with a flower in her hair and a BFF shirt – Best Friends Forever. She’d make a great gift for girl friends. And at $15 you can’t go wrong!
