Looking for something adorable to give your love this Valentine’s Day?  My son and I both adore stuffed animals, and so do many women and kids- so you know that these will be a hit for many on your list.  Try as I might, I still love a sweet stuffed animal.  I don’t get many for myself anymore, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like them or wouldn’t love one as a gift now and again  🙂

Pink Promise: The lovable elephant is fashioned with super soft-tipped, two tone fabric and has playful heart prints in its oversized ears. Pink Promise is available in four huggable sizes (10.5”, 12”, 14”; 22”, SRP: $20, $24, $33 and $72 respectively).  My son loves his sweet pachyderm, who is super soft and snugly.  It’s uber plush fur and floppy ears are cuddly and fun to play with or take to bed at night (or pass out on the couch with while watching a movie on a snow day, LOL). Also, it can go “on parade” with the pink elephants of Dumbo, which of course did not escape my son’s mind  🙂



YooHoo & Friends™: Luvee™, an endangered chimpanzee, joins Aurora’s best selling plush line (more than 23 million sold) as a three-color assortment. Luvee hugs a slightly askew heart, each with a different message including “Love U”, “Be Mine” and “XOXO!” Each makes a “smooch” sound when squeezed (5”, SRP: $9).  They make a “kissing” sound when you hug their bellies, and have adorable expressions and large eyes.  YooHoo are a lot of fun to collect as well, and come in a wide assortment of creatures and colors.  These are great for a collector or way to start your collection, and are very affordable.  My son loves this line, and has since he was very young.

valentiens day doll

Raggedy Ann “Sweet Dove”: “This 2,400 piece, special edition doll features a pink and brown, truffle-inspired polka dot cotton dress with detailed, embroidered apron. She’s sprinkled with satins, ribbons and ‘love doves’ embroidery, and the hangtag and sewn label are individually numbered for authentication. Each RAGGEDY ANN doll features the traditional “I Love You” heart embroidered on her chest (16”; SRP: $27).   I love Raggedy Ann and Andy- I still have mine from when I was a little kid.   There is something so sweet and loving about them, and they are filled with nostalgia.  Rag dolls have always been popular toys, and Raggedy Ann and Andy have been around for a long while, with books and even a cartoon and Broadway show about them as well.  They are even in the Toy Hall of Fame.  Raggedy Ann is one of my all time favorite toys, she is sweet, cuddly, inspires play and nurturing, and has stood the test of time.  I love these new holiday themed designs.

sad sam stuffed animal

Sad Sam & Honey®: This classic property stars two endearing basset hounds with sweet, innocent looks and sad eyes. They come with three messages to choose from: “I Love You,” “Puppy Love” and “Be Mine” (8.5”, SRP: $14). “Messages are embroidered on the sparkled, velvet hearts,” says Kessler. The line expansion also includes large “Blushing” variations; paws rest on their blushing cheeks that, when squeezed, light up and make a ‘smooch’ sound. Kessler says, “An oversized feature tag doubles as a gift card” (14”, SRP: $23).  These classic toys are molded after a baby’s large eyes and expressions, giving them their well known sweet look.  These toys have been around for a while, and are making a comeback with their new line.  I’m happy to see them again, I remember them from when I was a kid.  They are so cute, that of course they are still adored by adults and kids everywhere.  This is a perfect gift for your spouse or your kid.  A gift that is great for anyone is hard to find, but so much of Aurora can do just that- please almost anyone.

Aurora products are available in more than 25,000 specialty stores and gift shops worldwide as well as online at For more information, visit
