Allow us to introduce you to the YooHoo & Friends “Smooch” assortment, which is available all year round. But there’s still time to order and have it shipped for that special someone just in time for Valentine’s Day. Just visit http://shop.auroragift.com or click here to go straight to the order page for these adorable YooHoo & Friends animals.

Available as a pink or purple YooHoo (also Lemur and Fennec – see below for photos), each is only 5 inches in size — the perfect compliment to a box of chocolates or flowers. The heart glows and YooHoo makes a funny “smooch” sound when squeezed.
