  • Super Why And Wow Wow Wubbzy Highlight Earth Day! (Giveaway)
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED!!! Congratulations Rebecca! Last year for Earth Day my girls headed to the Kid Toons to watch an episode of Super Why dedicated to the Earth Day theme of saving water.

  • An Eco-Friendly Playhouse From KidsCraft (Giveaway)!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations AEVande! You know how you always want to make that little go-cart or boat or rocket out of a cardboard box that you spied in some television show. As much as the idea is endearing and filled with creativity galore, that empty box is hard to come by. I mean seriously, how often do you buy a fridge or some other big appliance....

  • Check Out My Personalized Resort Tote from Initials (Win A $50 Gift Card Too)!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Arla! I am a bag lady. Well sort of. I love bags. I just don’t have much luck with them.

I have often bought personalized stuff for my...

  • Win A Custom Shirt From Fibers.com!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Aimee! When I was approached by the guys at Fibers.com to review an item from their customized printed apparel it was just around the time I was thinking of getting a Mommy Niri t-shirt so I thought perfect timing.

  • Win The Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey DVD!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Kevin! Curious George is a firm favorite in my home. I love that! He probably resembles a little child more than any character in any of the children’s shows. Enough curiosity to learn but enough mischievousness to constantly be in trouble. The maths and science aspects are well entwined in each episode that kids explore without...

  • Win Sunglasses For Your Kid!
    Tweet CONTEST IS CLOSED! Congratulations Elizabeth! It was a bit sunny out today in Boston so I know summer is just around the corner.

  • The Nook: It Came, I Downloaded, I Read! (Win A Nook Too)!
    Tweet THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED! Congratulations Anne! But you can win the Nook Color! I read books. Children books count, don’t they? The thing is I was addicted to reading.

  • Win Children’s Oral Health Kit (Listerine And Reach)!
    Tweet CONTEST IS CLOSED! Congratulations Saumya! Brushing is a necessary evil. I mean like it or not you know you have to do it.  If you skimp on it the results will be clearly visible each time you smile. Having a kid throws a spanner in the works. Oh, and I don’t just mean that you don’t find the time to pay attention to your oral hygiene (that too) but...

So when last year I was offered to try some...

  • Win Autographed Copy of Linchpin by Seth Godin
    Tweet Contest Closed Congratulations Beth! Who does not love Seth Godin? I am sure I am not alone in being a huge fan.

When I met Seth Godin in NY during the Linchpin...

    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED!! Congratulations Terri! Hasbro has the most delectable toys, especially for PreSchoolers (more on that later as I have a scoop from a private showroom viewing) but my favorite has got to be the Potato head.

  • Haba Games For Pre-Schoolers! Win It!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Terri! Electronic games are all fine and well but I slot the usage of them in the 2 hour maximum television window I allow my kids per day.

  • Suave Kids “Wash Them Grow” Sweepstakes!
    Tweet Bath time!  It can either mean fun time or struggle time. We tend to have box of bath toys in the bathroom to try and make it as exciting as possible.  Of course there is no guarantee.

  • Win A $50 Walmart Gift Card To Help With Game Time!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Adria! Are you ready for your Super Bowl party? Walmart is a place that has everything from the snacks to electronics.

  • Win Plum Organic’s Toddler Snacks!
    Tweet CONTEST IS CLOSED!!! Congratulations Sarah! While I attended a Blogger’s Brunch in New York I met up with the guys from Plum Organics.

  • Win Sprout’s “Let’s Grow: Lend A Helping Hand” DVD!
    Tweet CONTEST IS CLOSED!!! Congratulations Gianna! The great thing about being part of the Sprout’s Band Of Bloggers is that I get a sneak peak into the amazing works of the Sprout team.

    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! COngratulations Darla, Rachel, Susan, Kelly, Emily! When I was approached to give Shake ‘N Bake a try, my reaction was “What?”.

  • Win E.L.F Makeup Artist Starter Kit ($50)
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED!! Congratulations Rondah! I know what you are thinking, enough with stuff for the kiddos already.

    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED!!! Congratulations Julie! Skincare is one of the things I pay attention to. Well, make that used to pay attention to. I must admit I have let things get out of control.

  • Check Out The Boy Dolls And Win One Too ($59.95)!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED!!! Congratulations Ellen! I have 2 girls so to say that dolls are a part of our life would be highly redundant.
