I’m very excited today to let you know about three of the latest plush lines brought to us by Aurora World Inc and just in time for the holiday gift giving season too! These toys would be wonderful addition to a few other gifts you may be purchasing and would be fantastic stocking stuffers. We are a fan of the of all three of the animals we were sent to review from the latest lines and have taken note they like many of the other Aurora products we’ve reviewed,  are made exceptionally well! My daughter loves her new pals!

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).

Aurora – Dreamy Eyes™

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.
