TDmonthly Review:

What is It?
The Ooshes
are a new line of plush toys by Lavinia’s World (ToyShow) that come included with a new series of modern fairy tales by the same name. The dolls come in five appealing candy colors – orange, green, pink, yellow and purple – and each has its own special personality and biography.

What We Thought
The velboa exterior, squeezable polyester fill and plastic pellets give The Ooshes a level of softness and warmth rarely seen in plush dolls. The correspondence of color to personality gives each doll a unique image and identity that children can relate to, and the included storybook is a great way to encourage literacy.

Why They’ll Want It
Lavinia’s World has created a product that combines an important ecological and educational message in a soft, lovable and high quality toy at a below average retail price.
