We’re pretty big fans of stuffed animals around here and when I saw the YooHoo & Friends critters, I had to check them out.
Here’s a little info on YooHoo & Friends from the website…
YooHoo & Friends are based upon real animals from around the globe, some of which are endangered. YooHoo & Friends live in the virtual world Yootopia- visit them today at http://www.yoohoofriends.com to play games, raise YooHoos, and watch previews of the upcoming YooHoo & Friends animation series. Collect all the YooHoo & Friends today!
I was sent the YooHoo character keychains (one blue and one yellow lemur), the Lion (he roars when you push his stomach) and the Owl (he makes a magical sound when you push his stomach). Riley quickly claimed the Lion and Asher was excited about the Owl. Gavin felt like he was a little old for them (he’s 11, so I guess that’s to be expected). They have a lot of cute little characters to choose from and a website with games and activities as well.
Riley enjoyed the website for a couple of days, but he hasn’t been on it in a little while and he said it was because he couldn’t get the part where you raise the YooHoos to work right. I checked it out and couldn’t get it to work well either, so I’m not exactly sure what was going on. In any case, he hasn’t really shown anymore interest in being on the website, but he has still enjoyed playing with the Lion stuffed animal.
If you’re looking for a cute little stuffed animal of types of animals that you don’t see in stuffed animal form very often (wow, I just said “animal” way too many times in that sentence), these are a cute option. They have several different sizes, ones that make noise and keychains. The website does tell about the different animals that correspond with the stuffed animals and show where in the world they come from and things like that, so I do appreciate that educational aspect of them.
So, I’d say they are cute little critters that are appealing to the younger kids and if you’re looking for cute websites for your kids to play on, they are good for that as well, so check them out.
