Thanks to our site contributor, Jen, for checking out this toy with her son, Rickey.
When I first heard about Aurora Softy Soakers, I was a little skeptical…all I could think of was those little dinky rubber toys that we had when we were kids that you put in water and they grew (sometimes). It turns out, Softy Soakers are WAY better! Rickey is 19 months old and he was able to put this toy in the water and help it grow. He thought it was great that I was letting him play in a huge bowl of water!
When we opened the package we had a flat hammerhead shark and in less than one minute we had an adorable plush 3D toy.
The directions were beyond easy: all you need to do is fill a bowl with water and then drop in the Softy Soaker. Let it absorb the water…. wait 40 seconds and then dry off the Softy Soaker. It is so simple and super cute!
The “Fanta Sea” collection (MSRP: $10 each) includes a sea horse, octopus, hammerhead shark, dolphin, sea turtle and alligator.
Aurora wants to give one lucky Mama Cheaps reader a Softy Soaker of their own!

We are pretty much always on the go – and 99% of our traveling is done by car. Our search for fun road trip gadgets is ongoing! Recently we had the chance to check out the Cheeky Charlie Monkey Neck Rest for kids. This neck rest is just one product in the new “Are We There Yet” line introduced for Summer, 2011 from Aurora.
Besides the “Keep Me Comfy” Neck Rests, this product line also includes: plush animals, “By My Side” Backpacks and “My Name Is” ID Tags.
Lily Bean was only too happy to try out her new neck rest – it was pretty much love at first site. We now keep this neck rest in the car and it’s her special traveling pillow.
Lily likes that she gets to use something fun in the car, I like that this neck rest is made just for kids. The size is appropriate for little ones and the animal theme makes it fun, encouraging them to use it. It always made me cringe when she would fall asleep in her car seat with her head/neck hanging at a horrible angle.
You can find this Keep Me Comfy Neck Rest on Amazon for just $12.99 – shipping is FREE with Amazon Prime!
