I’ve had the pleasure of review several of Aurora’s plush toys. Recently I watched as Aurora’s new Paw Puppets, Toy Pet Carriers, and the adorable pair of monkeys – Cheeky Charlie & Carmen brought huge smiles and lots of fun to both my nieces and my daughter. It didn’t take long for my four year old niece to discover the monkey’s velcro hands and hugging capability. Nor did it take long for the girls to fall in love with the precious pup inside the carrier. These toys were loved from the minute they were handed over. The Paw Puppets have also been a big hit in our house. Taking pretend play to a whole new level.
Honestly, we have never met an Aurora product that wasn’t loved instantly. Knowing they are always made of the highest quality also give us a piece of mind when it comes to shopping for a gift. It’s also nice to know that shopping Aurora’s products won’t break the bank. All gifts suggested retail for under $20!

Paws Puppets:
Get your “Grrrrrr” on with Aurora’s all new Paws Puppets. Nicely stuffed with velboa plush, ‘Paws’ are not your traditional sleeve puppet. The soft claws (not hard plastic) complement the paw pad detailing. The 100 percent soft puppets are available in six styles including “White Tiger”, “Leopard”, “Black Panther”, “Bengal Tiger”, “Polar Bear” and “Lion”. Aurora’s Paws Puppets are also great products for schools or sports teams with animal mascots. Ages three and up.

Toy Pet Carriers:
One of Aurora’s best selling lines, 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. Available in three new styles, “Sweet…Sweet…Sweet,” “I Heart U,” and “Love” .

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”, “Cheeky Charlie Surfer”, “Cheeky Charlie Zoo Keeper”. Each monkey’s Velcro hands make “hanging out” easy! Ages three and up.
