Craftsbury Kids Giveaway!!!

So cool! One reader will win a $75 gift certificate to Craftsbury Kids. Craftsbury specializes in beautiful, handmade merchandise for children. The majority of the treasures they sell are made in the USA and Europe.

So, what would you do if you won the gift certificate? I can't enter, but it sure is fun to dream...

Maybe I'd get Linnea a scary monster. Glenny Monster is handmade in Oregon by doll maker Casie Nipper from cotton fabric and fleece. And, it's good to know that he is machine washable.

Glenny the Plush Monster ($30)



Bird-loving Arielle would love to have her name in "birds."

Storybook Bird Banner ($18.00 per letter)



The same American artist, Irma Niekum, makes absolutely stunning mobiles ($82.00), dolls and party favors.




Tooth Fairy Doll ($28.00)




Or maybe a pretty pendant ($18.00) and a sweet ruffled petticoat ($49.00)



I love petticoats.



I think this is my absolute favorite. Arielle and Linnea love playing birthday party. The 10" tiered cake comes with two sets of trims, four roses, and a birthday candle so kids can decorate the cake themselves. Everything is made of hand or machine sewn out of quality wool blend felt. It comes with a pretty box with ribbon on top. What little girl wouldn't love it?

Felt Cake Decorating Kit ($45.00)



A cute-as-can-be gingerbread house is also available.

To enter, just go to Craftsbury Kids and browse the wonderful handmade goodies on the site. Pick your favorite out of all the clothing, jewelry, toys and decor and other "pretties" and tell me about it. You can enter by comment, email or Facebook message. The winner will be chosen on December 2nd.

I love the giant wool balls and the recycled sweater balls. What fun for three boys!

Amanda said...

I really like those discovery totes... what a great idea! I bet my little boy would love one of those.

Maria said...

Love the cherry seat and step stool. I've been envisioning something like that to replace our current lame white plastic one....

pmama said...

Oh the storybook bird banner! My kids watch birds out of their bedroom window every afternoon and the banner would be just perfect to hang above it.

giddygoat said...

Oh my word! That cake! My girls would go nuts for that.

Kudos to you for all these great giveaways!

Bridget said...

The kitty crayons, the felt cake, the custom posy doll pendant...there are so many lovely things to pick from, but my girls would love these items!

Eagle Loft said...

What a lovely site. I would choose the Art Box -- such a great product with a heartfelt story behind its creation.

Lee said...

Hi,
I can't decide between the felt gingerbread house or the felt cake. Both are too cute!
Thanks,

oooh! I think I'd have to get my kiddo the art box. It would be perfect to keep him distracted in the car on the 9 hour trip to my folks house for the holidays.

I absolutely love the rose pavillion! It's so girly, what a beautiful play area for a little princess!!

Amie said...

I am new to your blog but am so amazed! I am always searching for high quality safe toys for my little girl. It is so nice to have a great place to go to get a reference! Thank you!!!!! And on top of all that you have give-aways??? I am in heaven! So on that note I searched through the Craftsbury kids web site and would like to narrow down my list to one of everything, lol. Seriously I have fallen in love with the Art Box. I had one as a child and loved it. My daughter is always dragging along paper and crayons, it would be so nice to have a portable box to take her art with us and a huge bonus to have the box as something to draw on. I love the story of why the artist designed it too. In memory of her Grandpa, very heart warming!!!

Melissa R said...

My favorite were the Silhouette Pendant, they are so sweet. But I would have to get the felt cake for my daughter. Ever since her 3rd birthday party two weeks ago she's spent hours everyday playing birthday party with her dolls, baby brother and me. She would love the cake!

Shannon @ Some Fine Taters said...

The cake is my favorite!!! I also love the felt crowns and flower finger puppets.

Sarah said...

If I won a gift certificate to Craftsbury Kids, I think I would be totally selfish and get myself the Daisy bag! It kind of reminds me of Mary Poppins. Mommy is allowed a treat sometimes too right?

Katie said...

I know that when I was a kid (maybe even a little bit now ;) ) I would have LOVED to have a Willow Pavillion!!!

That is the first thing I saw and I know there is going to be a million other things I love on there, too!

Donna said...

I love the big girl's a-line dresses and I'd love to get a set that are similar, but not matching, for my twin daughters -- those are SO pretty!

Angie said...

I would love to get the Belle and Boo Treehugger print for my daughter's room! It is so pretty! Thanks for the giveaway!

Jen Mc said...

I like the toy wooden log truck. The Obama Air Force One is too cute too!

The Willow Pavillion looks amazing!

I also think the Art Box looks great.

oh, a giant personalized ball (what a great idea!!!) and the pet pals suitcase!

Carrie said...

Having my one little girl and lots of boys,I would really cherish an old-fashioned petticoat on her.It would be so pretty and unique.I would definitely love it on her!

john & catherine said...

Just came to your blog through a google search and love it! Thanks for all the great reviews. So hard to choose at Craftsbury kids. I think I might get the Little Engine That Could set--my two would love that. Thanks again.

Annie said...

I love the art box, I know my son would love to have that and I'd love to have a place to store some of his art supplies. I also really like the recycled sweater balls.

Grace said...

hilary said...

I don't even have to look- I'm already in love with the toy boats, and have been eying them for some time!

simpli mama said...

My son has been talking about the little sailboats since he first saw them. We <3 them and want about 4 different ones!

I would have to get the pink bolt cape. I think it would have to be shared with Lily (my 5-year old) and Mama when I needed some extra pep to my step to become SUPER Mama!

The Toy Snob said...

I love the teapot & teacup drawer pulls. I want a little girl so badly and when I have one I'm doing her nursery in a tea set theme. The drawer pulls would be perfect!!!

Thank you!

I can't stop looking at the felt playhouse! Made with 100% wool felt, in the colors of your choice! Wow! Custom colors! I'm sold. How cool. I think I would play with this more than my daughter. http://www.craftsburykids.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=4_99&products_id=903

My Boaz's Ruth said...

There are SO many things to choose from. I just keep going back and looking. Thanks for reminding me that I need to do more than look. I have to choose!

I'm thinking the Giant Personalized Ball, A sophie Giraffe, and a chocolate bear hat for my little Teddy bear.

timin525 said...

I just love the Amongst Magic Print! it reminds me of my almost 4yo who lives in an imaginary land half of her awake time. I would also buy that felt cake! I was going to try to "make" one, but it would be so much better to win one!

Amanda said...

oh my goodness how do you pick just one. I would have to pick the pink bolt cape. I know that London might share every once in a while. Plus a cape can be everything. Hair, a hat, apron, mask, tent, hideout, a whole dress for India

blue circle bird said...

Wow! Almost missed this one!

There is SO many wonderful things to choose from, it would be a tough choice! I love the Art Box and the Damestart Baby Partly Cloud Tee....but that is just a few of MANY, MANY things...love it!

yukonlewis said...

Lulu's Woobies are the most adorable hats I have seen..... I wish my children were small enough to wear one.

Kim said...

Wow! What a great website! I would get a few capes (do they come in adult sizes?) and a crayon roll for my son - OK, for me. But I am good at sharing.
