My boys love anything that "grows" in water and they love plush animals so when I was contacted by Aurora and asked to review their new Softy Soakers it was a no brainer!
In celebration of Aurora World Inc's 30th anniversary they released a new plush line called Softy Soakers. The first collection of Softy Soakers is the Fanta-Sea collection including a sea horse, octopus, hammerhead shark, dolphin, sea turtle and alligator. All you have to do is drop the 2D plush into water for 40 seconds, massaging it to help absorb the water, then take it out and towel-dry it. Now you have a new 3D plush friend!
We received the Hammerhead Shark for this review. As soon as it arrived, we took it out of the package and stuck it in a bowl of water. I left it in there for probably a minute because it wasn't quite "growing" at first, the I took it out, dried it off, and my boys fought over it for the next hour! That's how you know they really like something haha!
The Hammerhead Shark stayed filled for a few days then returned to it's original shape all ready for us to refill and play with again! I think my boys enjoy the "growing" process more than the actual toy itself, so it's really neat that it can be repeated every couple of days.
The Softy Soakers Fantasy-Sea collection can be purchased individually for $10 for each plush animal online here. Be sure to "like" Aurora on Facebook to stay up to date on all of their new products.
Thanks to Aurora, one of my readers will win their very own Softy Soaker!
