A few months ago I did a review for YooHoo and Friends and now I have more cute cuddly animals to share. YooHoo and Friends have a new website and they wanted you to check out. Not only do they have a fun interactive website that helps you teach your children about endangered species but they have adorable plush toys that make for great gifts. Check out the graduation and birthday friends! So cute, they have hats.
About YooHoo and Friend’s New Web Site
Toy and gift manufacturer Aurora World Inc. has launched a brand new web site for its best selling brand, YooHoo & Friends. The free, interactive virtual world at www.yoohoofriends.com requires no activation code and is targeted to children 5 to 12 years old. At the web site, visitors can learn about real animals and their environment, play games, send e-cards, download wallpapers, calendars and coloring sheets, as well as adopt and raise YooHoo & Friends. Additionally, “Design YooHoo’s Next Friend Contest” entries are being accepted now; the contest runs through May 31st.
“We are really happy with the new web site, which is now compatible with multiple browsers. Most importantly, we developed the site to make learning about the world’s animals fun and entertaining,” says Michael Kessler, SVP of Sales. He adds, “The site is packed with quizzes and maps about animals, a ‘My Room’ section for taking care of your pet; a ‘Playground’ with animations and more than 15 games; as well as a fun zone for downloads, e-cards and keeping an eye on what’s happening with all the YooHoo & Friends.”
The “Design YooHoo’s Next Friend Contest” encourages children to submit drawings of who they think YooHoo’s (the original character from YooHoo & Friends) next friend should be. Every entry, such as the “pouch rat” (pictured left) is posted on the Facebook fan page. Three winners will receive various prizes including plush toys from the YooHoo & Friends line. Winners are chosen based on creativity (50%), colors (30%) and choice of animal (20%) and will be notified by June 15, 2010. Aurora encourages fans of the brand to join them on Facebook and Twitter to see the submission and be the first to get updated on product news, events, and freebies.
