and Holiday-Themed RAGGEDY ANN and RAGGEDY ANDY Dolls
Pico Rivera, CA – August 6, 2012 – Flip through Aurora World Inc.’s (www.auroragift.com) newest catalog featuring more than 75 all new precious plush pieces, and you’ll see the company’s mission to bring “gifts of smiles” to its customers is as strong as ever. Aurora, one of the largest toy and gift manufacturers, says the response from its worldwide retail customers about the mid-year catalog has been overwhelming. Orders are highest for Aurora’s new styles from the best selling Fancy Pals line and endearing Miyoni collection, as well as Holiday editions of Aurora’s handmade RAGGEDY ANN and RAGGEDY ANDY plush doll line, created under license from Hasbro, Inc. (pictured above).
“Aurora’s production team has worked with our customers to piece together a visually stunning array of new soft toys and gifts that are in the highest demand right now,” says Michael Kessler, Aurora SVP of sales and marketing. “Aurora is committed to helping our customers stock shelves with competitively priced, high-quality products that capture the consumer’s attention and keep them coming back for years. We know these new collections will exceed their expectations.”
Miyoni Mom & Baby features six new two-piece sets of jungle and domestic animals. The line includes Panda with Cub, Giraffe with Calf, Lioness with Cub, Polar Bear with Cub, Orange Tabby with Kitten and Golden Lab with Puppy. “Mom cuddles with baby, and each set comes with a tag that includes facts about the animal. For example, a panda cub fits in the palm of your hand,” says Kessler. “We’ve illustrated facts like these for each of the animals.” Sizes range from 14”-16” and have an SRP of $35 (ages 18 months and up).
“When Aurora launched its Fancy Pals line over five years ago, it seemed every celebrity was carrying a pet in a purse or bag. The public responded as millions of pieces have sold since -- they are as popular as ever. The momentum continues with a variety of new styles for the customer including Pet Packs (pictured above),” says Kessler. The Pet Packs are a fun way to carry your plush in style. The backpacks are kid-sized and fashioned using the softest material. “The pack is themed after the animal’s environment and has a see-through panel so that kids can show off his or her pet.” Styles include Tiger, Monkey, Dolphin, Unicorn, Kitten and Clown Fish. Each pet pack is roughly 8”x7.5”x3” and SRP is $23 (ages 3+).
Joining Aurora’s existing RAGGEDY ANN and RAGGEDY ANDY plush doll collection are four highly anticipated holiday styles. “Aurora is very excited to showcase these handmade pieces that feature exquisite detail including fine facial features and yarn hair with the classic loop style. These are heirloom treasures that can be passed on for generations,” says Kessler. The RAGGEDY ANN “Chilly Chic” and “Santa’s Helper” and RAGGEDY ANDY “Chilly Chic” and “Santa” are 16 inches and SRP is $27 (ages 18 months and up).
