REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY – Aurora World Crinkle Friends Toddler Toy

With a brand new nephew I find myself checking out baby clothes and toys again. They’ve changed in many ways since my boys were little. Recently I was offered the opportunity to check out the latest addition to Aurora’s Crinkle Friends line of toddler toys – Crinkle Friends Brights.

Crinkle Friends Crab

ABOUT CRINKLE FRIENDS BRIGHTS

Geared towards parents and toddlers, these new designs use bright, vivid colors and feature enough squeaks, crinkles and rattles to keep children happy and busy for hours. Aurora has recently added Hedgehog (“10.5), Toucan (8.5”), Alligator (13”) and Crab (10.5) to its popular Crinkle Friends line, which already includes frog, pig and cow. Crinkle Friends are suitable for ages six months and up.

MY THOUGHTS

I received the Crinkle Friends Crab. The toy itself is a really nice size, big enough to actually grab, hold and play with but not so heavy that it can’t be played with. Also, it isn’t so big that it would take up an entire crib or playpen. The material is all very plush and soft, sort of velvety. The toy is well made and the colors are bright and bold and attractive. The toy is just cute! I really like that the toy incorporates the different senses of sound and feel by using crinkles, a rattle and squeak. this toy would be a great gift for any toddler.

Aurora’s Crinkle Friends retail for about $17 and can be purchased at retail or online at the official Aurora shop (http://shop.auroragift.com).
