Aurora's Softy Soaker Review and Giveaway

Flat-right out the package

Aurora's Softy Soakers™ Make a Splash in Plush Playtime Plunge Plush Toys in Water, Expand to Full Size in 40 Seconds

Dippin' in the water
Aurora is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, is releasing a plush collection that loves diving into water in the summer as much as kids do. Simply place Softy Soakers in water and the plush expands from a flat toy to a full size, eight-inch plush animal. The initial collection includes the "Fanta-Sea" plush assortment, and based on the response from buyers at this year's winter shows, Aurora sees a huge hit in the making.

 "Everyone who came to our booths or showrooms earlier this year inquired about these H20-friendly toys," says Michael Kessler, SVP of sales and marketing. "With Softy Soakers, kids have a new way to experience their plush animals and don't have to wait long for the toy to 'grow up'," Kessler says. "Softy Soakers are good to go in about 40 seconds. They don't take 72 hours to become full size, like some other products on the market." 

 The "Fanta Sea" collection (MSRP: $10 each) includes a sea horse, octopus, hammerhead shark, dolphin, sea turtle and alligator. "All you have to do is fill a bowl with water and drop in the Softy Soaker. We suggest massaging it for speedy water absorption. Then after 40 seconds, grab a towel, "rub-a-dub-dub" it dry and you're ready for some fun." Kessler adds it is a relatively simple process for any child, mom or dad and a great toy for the summer months.

Finished product
My boys were wanting to do this so bad.  My camera wasn't working so I had to wait.  They begged every day.  They were so excited when we got to do this this morning!  As you can see from the first picture, this was completely flat when I opened up the package.  We stuck it in the bowl for the 40 seconds and when we pulled it out it was fluffy like you see above.  We gave it a quick dry off, and it doesn't even feel wet on the outside!  I think we are going to let it take a bath with the boys tonight!!  What a cool idea, a stuffed animal that can get wet and not get ruined.

Aurora would like to give one of my reader's a softy soaker of their own.
