Lucas's First Review/Giveaway (& Book Winners)

The winner of Gifts is: Lianna

The winner is Jessica at Raising Joey!
Lucas had the opportunity to do his first review of the Animal Crackers Giant Stacking Toy from One Step Ahead. I wanted to save this for Christmas, but then I wouldn't be able to do a review of it :)


and when they say "Giant" they really mean giant - here is Lucas sitting next to it for size reference:


This is a fun stacking toy that even older siblings like to play with too! We put the animals on our head and crawled around pretending to be a duck, mouse, cat, dog...we put our arms through the holes and wore "animal bracelets" ... and Lucas just smiled at us the whole time. He really liked squeezing and throwing and chewing on all the soft animals and textures. Lucas (and Kayla!) had fun discovering which ones rattled or crinkled. His favorite is the little fish that sits on top of the pole. It squeaks. Lucas is all about the squeaks.

The pole is sturdy so when you're putting the animals back on it doesn't become floppy and make it hard to do. The only thing is the fish on top of the pole; it would be better if it wasn't on the top because you have to maneuver the hole in the animal over the fish and the pole. But neither Lucas nor Kayla were complaining about that so maybe it was just me :)

All in all it was a big hit in our house - and Kayla has even tried confiscating this as her own toy!

Guess what? I received two of these toys (valued at $34.95); one to share with one of my readers. Just in time for the holidays! Use coupon code BLOGSAVE to get 15% off $85 or more through Dec 7th.

Leave a comment (make sure I have a way to reach you) and Random.org will pick a winner early next week. And stay tuned - I have some more fun things to give away soon!
