Aurora Gifts for Christmas- Review plus Giveaway

***Giveaway closed–winner notified by email***

I don’t know about your kiddos, but mine have a thing for stuffed animals.  Aurora Gifts has some of the cutest stuffed toys around!

Take the Dreamy Eyes for example…

dreamyeyes

That giraffe is so cute, I want one!

They also have awesome stuffed monkeys called Cheeky Charlie and Carmen.

aurora5 CheekyCharlie Aurora – Cheeky Charlie™ & Carmen™

Retailers know Aurora’s go-to monkeys with personality, lovable smiles and signature banana in the tail, Cheeky Charlie™& Carmen™, fly off store shelves. Three newer styles in the line include Cheeky Charlie “Rock Star” which features Charlie with a Mohawk, sporting a guitar and t-shirt (14.5 inches). Cheeky Charlie Surfer (14.5 inches) in a visor and board shorts is ready to hit the beach with his surfboard. Cheeky Charlie Zoo Keeper (14.5 inches), Wrangler Cheeky Charlie (pictured, 14.5 inches) and Carmen “BFF” (pictured, 14.5 inches) are some other top items in the line. Each monkey’s Velcro hands make “hanging out” easy! Ages three and up. All “14.5 inch” Cheeky Charlie & Carmen styles retail with a suggested price of $17.

We received Wrangler Cheeky Charlie and BFF Carmen for review.

Cheeky Charlieplush monkey Aurora PlushAurora Toys

I absolutely adore Charlie!  Carmen is cute, but those chaps on Charlie are what CUTE is made of!  Both monkeys are well made (as are all Aurora toys, in my experience).  They have the Velcro hands, so they can hug each other or hang around.

I think my favorite Aurora Gifts toy to date has to be the Fancy Pals Pet Carriers.  They are adorable little purses with stuffed animal friends inside.

aurora3 Aurora – Fancy Pals™ – The Original Toy Pet Carriers

One of Aurora’s best selling lines, Fancy Pals, features the original Pet Carriers — a purse and plush animal in one. The plush animals are interchangeable – kids have fun mixing and trading the animals to other carriers. Three new styles include “Sweet…Sweet…Sweet,” a pink poodle in a heart shaped bag with the word “sweet” embroidered on the side; “I Heart U,” a purple kitten and fancy pink bag embroidered with “I © U”; and “Love” (pictured) featuring an adorable black and white puppy in a flashy pink bag embroidered with shiny hearts and the word “love” (carriers vary from six to eight inches in size, depending on style; MSRP: $12)

This one is a pink purse with the word “Sweet” and an embroidered heart on it.  A cute poodle fits inside. Pocket Pets Aurora Gifts Pocket pets plush poodle

So, when Sister wants to use it as a pet carrier, she can, but if she just wants to wag it around as a purse, she can do that, too!
