Aurora: Softy Soakers (review & giveaway)

Brand new from Aurora, creator of soft and cuddly plush toys (like Moose's fox from the Henry Doorly Zoo), is a new line of toys: Softy Soakers! Softy Soakers are plush and super colorful sea life pals that, when soaked in the water for just a few seconds, will grow from a 2D animal to a 3D animal!

We got the shark to soak and play with. Moose caught on right away when I dipped Shark in the tub with them. The website says that you should towel off the soaker after soaking it for 40 seconds in water. I toweled ours off but it wasn't completely dry so I had the boys wait to play with it. 

A day or two later when the shark was drying out and getting flat again, Moose asked to put it back in water. It's so cool how fast he caught on to how the shark works. Squirt only likes it because it's Moose's, but I think he would enjoy an animal of his own - perhaps the turtle. I love that this is something you can do over and over again - we've soaked and re-soaked our shark a few times now. The colors are still vibrant and Moose still enjoys carrying him around.
The initial line “Fanta-Sea” line has six Softy Soaker pals to choose from: Collect them all! (They are available for $10 each from Aurora’s online store — or look for them where Aurora plush products are sold.)

Be sure to check out Aurora’s website and Facebook page for more info about favorite and upcoming products…

Those are super cute Randi! I can't decide which one I like the most. That turtle is pretty cute. My girls are into sea horses right now and thought that little purple guy was cute too! Fun stuff!

I have commented on the Gruffalo giveaway and the Pacifier Pocket Giveaway. And my 2 year old called you. :)

I like the dolphin a lot. But I think Avery would like any of these, they are very cute.
