Holiday Gift Guide: Aurora World and Peaceable Kingdom Toy Giveaway!!!

I have a major thing for stuffed animals. I've always loved them and still do love them! So when I had my first baby girl I made every attempt to surround her with adorable stuffed toys. Imagine my dismay when my now 3 1/2 year-old doesn't seem to care about stuffed animals and never got attached to any of them. Until we got a few of these YooHoos to review from Aurora World. Kirsten loves the YooHoos! She took one look at their big-eyed, cute faces and started laughing. Her very favorite one is the YooHoo 80's Dancer. It plays aerobic music when you press its belly, and she gets such a kick out of carrying it around and dancing to the song.
Why you'll love the YooHoos:
*They rank really high on the cuteness factor. I already want to start a collection!
*They're very affordable! Prices start at $9, making them a great gift option.
*The retro YooHoos like the 80's dancer are really funny! Some of them are modeled after famous pop icons like Elvis and Madonna, and they all make sounds or sing songs.
*The small ones are the perfect size for stockings!
*YooHoo & Friends are featured in a really fun website that's a whole virtual world!
The characters (and their plush counterparts) are based on real animals in their natural habitat. Some of them are endangered and children will be able to learn about each animal. Children can choose and raise pets, decorate their pet’s room, and play games. Registration to the website is free and doesn't require any activation code!

I love this adorable map that shows where each animal lives in the world:

Aurora World, Inc. (http://www.auroragift.com/), celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2011, is a leading manufacturer and supplier of high quality plush toys and gifts. The company sells its products via a wide variety of retailers including major zoos, high-end toy stores such as Learning Express, top gift chains such as Hallmark and Claire’s as well as hospital gift shops, fine florists, candy stores and gift/stationery stores worldwide.

Aurora World is offering an awesome giveaway to my readers. . . ANY product of your choice, out of all the ones I'm featuring on this blog post!!!
You can choose any adorable YooHoo OR. . .

A Fancy Pals Purse and Plush Animal in one! I can think of SOOOO many little girls who would just die to have one of these! Each animal fits in the cute purse, and these are a great value at only $12 for each set!

You could also choose a Paws Puppet! This puppet is so soft, stuffed with velboa plush, and even the claws are soft! They come in a bunch of different animal styles, and are a great addition to your child's role playing.

Or you could pick an animal from the totally adorable Dreamy Eyes collection! These animals are incredibly soft and sweet, I want them all!

A second winner will be lucky enough to win a beautiful set of Animal Alphabet Blocks from Peaceable Kingdom Press!

Why you'll love these blocks:
*The Animal Alphabet Blocks are made of cardboard and have a durable, glossy finish. They're lightweight and easy for small hands to hold!
*The colors and animal designs on them are really fun! They're also a great way for kids to learn about letters while increasing their motor skills and hand-eye coordination. My 19 month-old loves to stack them and knock them down!
*The storage box they come in is really great. It's the perfect size to hold every block, and has a magnetic closure.
