It is finally Spring here in Australia.
I’ve been waiting for this, desperately. As we know. So, to celebrate, I thought we’d have some fun this weekend. And give the kidlets something to do. Which is always handy.
The spiel is this… Stephen Jospeh gifts are an awesome little company that make useful stuff for kids- drink bottles, lunch bags, art pads, umbrellas and the like. This groovy gear is for guys and girls aged 2-8. It’s colorful, durable and so practical. and we know it’s not often that you find cool- looking kids stuff that is actually also very useful.
The people at Stephen Joseph sent me stack of freebies for the Bump and the Chop to test run. Here’s the Bump, modeling her new thermo lunch bag- it’s roomy, tough and has all kinds of storage pockets.
And this is the Chop with his new art book. It’s filled with blank paper and has a carry handle. If only it came with somewhere to store those crayons… aw well. can’t have it all.
And my personal favorite product… a Stephen Joseph pirate rain coat. It’s a little bit too big, as we can see, but he’ll grow into it, surely. And the weather didn’t exactly co-operate, so I couldn’t test it’s rain-worthiness. But this is a winner. Made our of soft, waterproof PVL rather than stiff scratchy PVC, it’s lined with cotton stretch fabric and has adjustable wrist bands to keep the drips out; pockets and a comfy hood. At $39.99 it is a little bit pricey, but worth every cent, with plenty of room to grow.
And now, the giveaway bit. To celebrate the start of Spring, RRSAHM has a pack of Stephen Joseph goodies to give away. It includes a lunch bag, and art book, two Tiny Totes and a Flower Power luggage tag that I almost kept for myself. It’s valued at $51.95.
As I said, we’re going to have some fun with this….
I’d love you to get your kids- if you have them- to draw you a piccie of something Spring-like- flowers, birds, sunshine, all that good stuff.
If you don’t have kids,
steal the neighbors and tie them up till they draw one for you you can draw your own picture. Serious.
Then upload it to the RRSAHM FB page.
Entries close, and winner will be chosen by my kids, Sunday night 4th
August September, at 7pm, and notified via FB and Twitter soon after.
The winner will be required to email me within 48 hours to claim their prize.
Aussies residents only– sorry OS’ers, next time.
Here’s a sample pic the Chop whipped up after I bribed him with marshmallows. Kid’s not a huge fan of craft, it doesn’t require enough energy or noise.
And.. that’s that. Get crafty, let’s have some fun… I can’t wait to see the results! (And please don’t leave me hanging and no one upload anything- that would be embarrassing….)
Disclaimage: I wasn’t paid for this post. I did get freebies, as blogged. I love freebies.
Thanks for reminding me Miss Pink- you can enter this one as many times as you like- two kids, two entries, and so forth….
