Aurora Softy Soakers {Review} and Giveaway ~! - Sammy Makes Six

Aurora Softy Soakers {Review} and Giveaway ~!


The Aurora softy soaker collection provides the best of two worlds that kids love. Soft plushies and water! We were intrigued to see exactly how these worked.
8" SOFTY SOAKERS FANTA-SEA ASST. picture
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. We suggest 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." 


This is how the softy soaker arrived. We got the super-cute purple sea horse. You get it out of the package and it is flat--- bring on the water and let the fun begin!


You can leave it in the water or massage it for faster water absorbtion. The longer the sea horse was in the water the bigger and more 3D it became. 


Dry it off in a towel and the softy soaker is now a plush toy. After it dried you couldn't even tell it had ever been wet. After about 4 days it began to lose some of it's shape and the kids had a blast getting their own dish of water and soaking it again.


 I liked a lot of things about the Aurora Softy Soaker. First of all, I like the price-I think $10 is a great prize for a toy that let's kid have fun with water and that it's not messy or hard. As long as they are supervised they can play with this on their own and spend quite a bit of enjoying it. I also like that in the end you get a cute 8" plush that can be enjoyed without water too, our little ones love plushies and they loved getting to see it grow and turn into a "live" sea horse! These will be perfect for gift giving, they are very affordable and fun.
