Here’s a little taste…

by Susan

Is your mouth watering at the thought of all those prizes?

Well, we decided to give you a little taste of the prize drawing fun since March can feel so far away when you’re itching to win something.

So we’ve arranged for an awesome mom-owned store called Kangaroodle to sponsor a fun little contest for us.

Shelly – the mom behind Kangaroodle – sent us a couple of brilliant baby products for us to test out and she’s also going to send the same two items to one of you!

Both of these must-have products are huge hits with me as they solve two problems that normally nag at me daily.

The first is the Lil Topper Sip Cap.

lil-topper.jpg“The Lil’ Topper creates a no-spill drink for your child out of nearly any personal sized water bottle! The patented valve keeps the liquid inside until the child sucks on it–which keeps it from spilling unless the child is drinking!”

I just love this because my little toddler Julia constantly wants to drink from a water bottle but ends up spilling it all over. It’s also so wonderful because whenever and wherever you are, you can create an instant sippy cup. How smart is that!!!

The second little treasure Shelly sent us is also a great spontaneous toddler solution. Check out these fantastic Kipiis Bib Clips.

These Kipii Bib Clips are perfect for Julia as we tend to be on the go and stop for a bite to eat without a lot of planning ahead. And anything that lightens my diaper bag or my laundry pile is a must for me!!!

So here’s where the fun for you comes in…

  1. Pop over to Shelly’s site and take a look around and pick out what you think is a great product that other moms should know about.
  2. Then write a short post on your own blog telling your readers about that item and link to it. You’ll probably also want to mention that you’re part of our contest.
  3. Sign the linky below

Then this weekend, we’ll draw one name from the Linky list and Shelly will send the lucky winner a set of Lil Topper Sip Caps and Kipii Bib Clips.

Even if you don’t have babies or toddlers of your own, still go ahead and enter the contest and then use them for a gift at the next baby shower you attend.

The post on your site can be really simple and short… it can even be at the bottom of another post.

Okay? Ready, set, go!

And the WINNER Is….

Awesome idea! I’ve posted about three products that I feel are necessary for all moms: Diaper and Wipes Pouch, NoThrow Sippy Cup & Bottle Holder, and the Digitsaver™ Door Pinch Guard.

Looking forward to the UBP in March!

I love the leg warmers! I wish I’d seen these before we started potty training! No more dull-colored “pioneer”-looking legs on my babes!

Oh — I’ve been meaning to let you all know that I would like to offer my Mommy Cards as a prize for a winner.

email me and let me know what you all need from me in order to do this.

PS – Susan — I haven’t forgot yours; Janice can fill you in on my week, news and butt-tired-ness I’ve been experiencing!! ;)

hello there! i was wondering if the lil toppers would be too babyish for 3, 5 and 7 year old boys? we drink a lot of bottled water now and i get those flavored packets for their water and most of the time the ones they like are red! i’m always so afraid they’ll spill the entire bottle. can you email me back and let me know what you think? thanks!
