valentines lubies 01

Background

In case you didn't know...Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. The day of infamy takes place on Monday February 14th this year. Will you go the flowers, candy, jewelry or stuffed animal route? If you go plush, Rocket USA has got you covered with a pair of brand new Lubies.

There are a pair of Valentine's Lubies that you can present to your loved (or lubbed) one. The Valentine's Octopus and Valentine's Gorilla are just trying to help “Spread the Lub”.

Tag

The Valentine's Lubies feature a slightly different tag. It's still circular, similar to the rest of the line. But, on the inside, there is space for you to write who the Lubies are To and From.

Our Opinion

I'm not sure if your Valentine's Day “go to” gift for that special someone is a box of chocolates, a dozen roses or a stuffed animal. Hey...maybe it's all of the above.

The Valentine's Octopus features the embroidered phrase "Armed For Hugs" located across its head. It's predominantly bright red with white underneath its tentacles and maroon around its eyes. The octopus is a pretty cool new animal design and features the correct number (eight) of tentacles.

The Valentine's Gorilla sports "Me Lub U" across his white chest. It's, also, mostly red with some gray and white features. I'm pretty sure that this is the first time we've seen the Gorilla Lubie plush character. (There was a Monkey released earlier in the line)

Of the two designs, I am leaning towards the Valentine's Octopus as my favorite. It doesn't really have anything to do with the embroidered message on the plush, it's just that I prefer the Octopus Lubie over the Gorilla Lubie.

OVERALL: Time is running out for you to get that special someone something special. Plush stuffed animals have been a staple of Valentine's Day shopping, and I doubt that you'll find anything cuter than the Lubies you see here (at least nothing Valentine's Day themed).
