We’ve mentioned the company Melissa & Doug before (Doug is a UConn alum – go Huskies!). We LOVE their products – they are high quality and affordable. We are beyond thrilled to offer a Freebie Friday giveaway from this terrific company!

Summer is almost here and what do most kids look forward to? The POOL! So, we are giving away 3 Melissa & Doug pool toys – score!

The lucky winner will get:

A Spark Shark Kickboard Pool Toy & a Dart Dolphin Kickboard Pool Toy

Young swimmers will be motivated to power through the pool with these awesome kickboards to help! Beginners can hold onto these tough, fabric-coated kickboards as they gain confidence; older swimmers will love them for games and exercise in the water. “Maritime Mates” water toys and pool games feature cheerful characters to encourage beginning swimmers and lots of exciting games to keep big kids splashing, swimming and having a blast. Summer is even more fun with Sunny Patch pool toys!

Yowza this is a pretty awesome freebie friday giveaway! As usual, our giveaway is from a local CT artisan. Simply leave a comment on this post to try to win. Winner will be selected Monday morning (contest will be open over the weekend).

Today’s giveaway comes from the very talented Rachel. Here’s a note from Rachel herself (LOVE her story!):

“My name is Rachel and I’m originally from Nashville, TN. I moved up to Connecticut for school and was reintroduced back into Art though clay and painting from when I was younger. I started making little baby plaques and blocks for my husband’s nieces and soon after my friends started asking me to make ones for their little ones! Most of the time I custom make them for when I know if it’s for a girl or boy and put something personal on them so they can keep it for years. I’m currently working on my Masters in Art Therapy and doing my fieldwork with at-risk youth while working with children on the Autism Spectrum as an ABA Therapist part-time. I also teach pottery to children and adults in Stamford, CT at Lakeside Pottery on the weekends. I’m a busy bee but I love going to school and both of the jobs that I do. It makes me happy to help others in need and as well to share my love for art.

A Todd Parr Book Review & Giveaway!

Feb 13, 2012 by

Special Alert! Today we bring you something extra special – a book review AND a giveaway!! To try to win this giveaway just leave a comment on this post and tell us why you want a Todd Parr book. We’ll pick three winner’s on Wed. morning – each winner will get one book. You don’t have much time to enter so go, go, GO!

In our house, we are big fans of Todd Parr’s books. Even though our daughter is only about 9 months old, the Peace Book is her absolute favorite book to read. It’s bright and sends such positive messages, in a world where our kids are inundated by negative messages from the media. Believe it or not, this book actually beats out her Elmo book as far as her level of enthusiasm! My favorite page says, “Peace is watching it snow” because I do find that incredibly peaceful. My hubby’s favorite page is “Peace is having enough pizza in the world for everyone.” Go figure! Lillian (our daughter) has a favorite page too, hers says “Peace is giving shoes to someone who needs them.” Every time I read this book aloud to her, I feel so good because I know I’m sending her such positive messages about life at a young age.
