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 practically nothing into 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.
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. Aurora suggests 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.
