Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I received products and/or compensation in exchange for my honest opinion about the following products.
I'm in the mood for another giveaway. What do you think?
Play It Safe Toys sent me some goodies for my grandchildren and I love them! Then, they offered to send some to you, too. How cool is that?
First, we have the absolutely adorable Bella the Cow Jumping Animal. Oh.my.goodness.
My granddaughter, Marley, obviously thought it was as awesome as I did. At 18 months, she can climb on with some assistance, but she does tend to topple off, so I recommend using it in a room with soft carpet for ones this little. Marley walked late and is still a bit wobbly!
Tested to meet tough European standards, Play It Safe Toys' Jumping Animals include Sammy the Pig and Harry the Horse and are free of both BPA and phthalates. They come in a variety of colors and are made to help build strength and coordination in children ages one and up.
Bella the Cow arrived deflated in a box that included a small pump. Once I pumped her up, she was ready to rock 'n roll! And she hasn't lost any of her bounce in the six weeks or so since I received her.
In addition to Bella the Cow, the generous folks at Play It Safe Toys sent me some wooden sewing cards for my older grandchildren. The four Animal Lace Shapes included a monkey, fish, butterfly, and teddy bear. They are colorful, sturdy, and eco-friendly. Made in the USA using only FSC certified wood, they are cut from scrap materials that would have otherwise been thrown away. There are four 52" strings, so everyone can join in the fun, even grandpaps!
While the Lace Shapes are designed for children ages four and up, little Marley was fascinated and eager to give it a try, just like her big sister, Laura.
Even my four-year-old grandson, Lincoln, enjoys his time at Grandma's "sewing." Unfortunately, I neglected to snap a picture of him doing so.
I remember playing with sewing cards when I was a child. It's such a nice break from all the electronic games kids are playing today, and these cards are excellent tools for helping children develop their fine motor skills.
Now, don't you think these would make excellent Christmas or Chanukah gifts? I certainly do, but for the sake of the review, I couldn't wait that long to give them to my grandchildren. Actually, though, I love that I can keep them at my house as special toys for them to play with when they visit.
So, let's get this contest rolling. Since you might have use for one toy and not the other, I'm going to post two Rafflecopters. Feel free to enter on only one or on both of them. This gives you the opportunity to win twice!
Sorry, but the giveaway is open to those in the US only, 18+. The prizes will be shipped directly from Play It Safe Toys to the winner(s). Contest ends at midnight on Sunday, November 30, 2014 and will be announced on Monday, December 1, 2014. Winner(s) will have 48 hours to respond with their mailing address before alternate winners will be chosen.
