On Easter morning, Darah found something very interesting from YooHoo & Friends waiting for her in her basket.
It was a stuffed lemur.
And it was dressed up in a horse costume!
This unique stuffed animal comes from YooHoo & Friends. YooHoo & Friends originally hit the scene in 206, and since that time, approximately 13,000 have been purchased EVERY SINGLE DAY, for a total of over 14 million! They are quite popular!
These new characters, the “WannaBes” are so much fun. They are the Yoohoo & Friends creatures that are also so loved by many, dressed up as other animals (for example, a giraffe, elephant, lion, tiger, horse, cow, cat and dog). When you squeeze your wannabe, they make the sound of the animal that they are dressed up like! Their hoodies are removable so that your child can play with their friend in costume or not in costume.
Now, I’ll be honest, I wasn’t too sure if Darah would like this new toy, or if she would just find it to be a strange “sort of horse/sort of lemur” combo. In fact, she fell instantly in love with it. After we explained what it was, she started giving it kisses and telling it that it was so soft and sweet. And she LOVES the horse sounds that it makes when you squeeze it! She has been toting her lemur with her everywhere since she got it, and she also likes to brush its hair and practice putting it to bed (by reading it a story, taking it to the potty, putting it in her bed, putting covers on it, and singing to it. CUTEST. THING. EVER.).
(Sorry for the poor lighting in the picture. My child wakes up before the sun…)
