These little creatures are, I have to say, completely weird. Yet strangely cute at the same time. According to millarcat at HUKD, her daughter absolutely loves them. And I can see why. The huge eyes, the big fluffy tail. What’s not to like! Play.com is selling three of the 5” YooHoo, soft toys for £4.49 each, delivered (normal price is £8.99).
A slight downside, for me at least as I only want the bunny, is that you don’t know which of the three you’ll be getting until it arrives. The choices are Bunny, Chick and Lamb YooHoo. Squeeze the tummy and each toy makes, according to the manufacturer, a unique and funny sound. There’s also a tie-in with their website. This does not require an activation code. On it families are encouraged to learn more about the YooHoo and Friends’ endangered animals. The site aims to make learning about creatures in their natural habitats fun and entertaining for children. Site users can play games, download wallpapers, calendars and icons, watch previews for the upcoming YooHoo and Friends animations, and adopt and raise YooHoo & Friends. The YooHoo and friends story is set in a forest called Yootopia, which features the “Tree of Life”.
