Pico Rivera, CA – April 17, 2012 – Retailers prepping for the 2012 holiday season are snatching up Aurora World Inc.’s (www.auroragift.com) fully animatronic Winter Wagner Bear, “WannaBes” from the best-selling YooHoo & Friends line and the adorable Merry Mouse, according to Aurora’s Senior Vice President Michael Kessler. The leading plush toy and gift manufacturer released its annual holiday-themed catalog, and Kessler expects these brand new lines to be huge hits during the busy shopping season.
