Back To School Bonanza
In honor of my son heading off to Pre-K and flying the coop for the first time next week (YAAASSS FINALLY!!!!!), I've put together a HUMONGO giveaway featuring fabulous products for the Back To School set (or those going to school for the first time).
One VERY lucky winner will score the jackpot, with products from 12 brands and a total value over $400 - containing school shoes, lice prevention, nutritional drinks, food pouches and bags, a humidifier, educational toys, zippered bed sheets, deodorizing packs, and a photo op t-shirt!! What's more? The 2nd place winner will receive a prize pack from Sneakz Organic and QuickZip, and 18 third place winners will receive a pack from Sneakz Organic!!!
Read on for more details about the brands and products in the pot, and enter to win in the Rafflecopter box at the bottom! Good luck to all!!!!
Sneakz Organic Milkshakes
Sneakz Organic flavored milk boxes are certified with no GMO's, are gluten free, feature organic milk from grass fed cows, and are sweetened with natural cane sugar. Each box contains half a serving of vegetables as follows: Chocolate flavor (Carrot, Cauliflower, Sweet Potato, Beet, Spinach), Strawberry flavor (Carrot, Cauliflower, Beet, Sweet Potato), Vanilla flavor (Carrot, Cauliflower, Sweet Potato, Spinach). But don't worry, your kids won't have a clue because they are DELISH (check out my review). A 12-pack goes for about $20 on their website or Amazon, but TWENTY winners will receive one milk box of each of the 3 flavors, a lunchpak, and a reusable shopping bag!!
QuickZip Zip-On Fitted Bed Sheets
QuickZip sheets have revolutionized the bedding world - this patented two-piece fitted sheet with a base and a zip-on top sheet is a total game changer and makes changing and laundering sheets a breeze (once base is in place, you don't have to pick up the mattress to change the top sheet - YESSSSS!!!)! Available for crib, twin, twin xl, full, queen, king, and cal king in 400 thread count sateen, 200 thread count fleece, cotton, or 100% organic cotton. Personally, I love love love these - we have them on all 3 of our kids' cribs and they are life (and back) savers (check out my review featuring my quick demo video). Also, looking to my future which will probably involve a bunk bed, these will definitely be essential for that top bunk!! You can purchase QuickZip sets (starting from about $39.99) on their website and Amazon, but two lucky winners will have a choice between the Baby Crib Premium Starter Pack and Twin Collection Premium Starter Pack.
Did you know keeping the air at the right level of humidity can help prevent illness? That's right - when your nasal passages dry out, they become easy targets for all the germs you encounter out there in the big bad world (probably my biggest fear regarding my son starting school). Beyond that, especially in the winter months, you might notice dry skin, chapped lips, stuffy nose, nose bleeds, and static electricity galore. Crane's humidifiers help you avoid all of these by keeping your home perfectly humidified, and they have some pretty stylish and cute options, too!! Crane humidifiers can be purchased (starting from about $35) on their website or Amazon, but our jackpot winner will have his or her choice of a Crane Drop or Adorable Humidifier. My review of Crane's "Freddy the Frog" Adorable Humidifier is coming soon, in the meantime, check out my review for the Crane Germ Defense Humidifier.
pediped Children's Shoes
Sold in over 2,500 stores in the United States and 40 countries worldwide, pediped offers more than 140 designs for boys and girls between its three lines: Originals® (0-24 months), Grip ‘n’ Go™ (1-3 years) and Flex® (2-12+ years). pediped is the fastest growing children's footwear brand in the United States and has been awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance for the promotion of healthy foot development, among many other industry and consumer-based awards! You can check out my reviews of pediped's Grip 'N Go Orion Sneakers and Originals Natasha Black dress shoes. pediped shoes can be purchased (starting from about $20) on their website or Amazon, but our jackpot winner will receive one pair of pediped shoes free - winner chooses gender and size, but the specific design will be a surprise!
I've tested out a LOT of reusable food pouches and Squeasy Gear is my all-time favorite. They're made of BPA/PVC/Phthalate-free food grade silicone (which doesn't leach toxins into hot/cold food/drink as other plastics can), they're easy to clean (dishwasher or hand wash, and you can even flip them inside out!!), they stand independently which means you don't have to hold them while filling, they have a removable spill-free insert, and they have a no-leak cap, and they're even freezer safe. Fill them with anything from homemade smoothies to storebought applesauce! They can even be used for liquids, and their 16oz Squeasy Sport is the most versatile reusable water bottle on the market - when empty, it can be rolled up!!! How cool is that!? They come in kid and adult-friendly colors: green, aqua, pink, and grey. Check out my review of the 6oz snacker. You can purchase Squeasy Gear (starting at $12.99) on their website or Amazon, but our jackpot winner will receive a 3-piece Squeasy Gear set including the 16oz Squeasy Sport, and the 6oz and 3.5oz Squeasy Snackers!!
Offering a collection of products for babies and kids that are clinically and dermatologist tested, Little Green is "safe, gentle, pure" with hypoallergenic formulas free of Parabens and Sulfates. Our grand prize winner will receive two sets from Little Green. The Lice Guard Set is non-toxic and clinically proven to help prevent head lice infestation. The shampoo and detangler help repel lice (with their proprietary blend of natural Tea Tree, Neem, Rosemary, Peppermint, Lavender, and Eucalyptus oils), and the gel helps seal the hair, making it difficult for lice to adhere to. The Baby Essentials Set includes a travel size Little Green Baby Shampoo & Body Wash and Nourishing Body Lotion along with a full size Soothing Balm in a reusable travel bag. Little Green products, starting at about $6, can be purchased on their website or Amazon.
Yummi Pouch snack and sandwich bags by Revelae Kids make it easy to pack Eco-friendly lunches and come in 16 modern prints. Perfect to hold sandwiches, dried snacks, fruit, and more! These cute moisture-resistant cloth bags close with a zipper and easily fit in a lunch box or school backpack. Revelae Kids' Yummi Pouches can be purchased on their website or Amazon, and our grand prize winner will receive a set of 3 snack bags and 3 sandwich bags, and can even choose the designs (as available).
From baby diapers to stinky gym bags, kids can bring with them a whole array of odors. But Fresh Wave says, "Life Doesn't Have to Stink!" Fresh Wave uses only natural ingredients to remove odors. No masking fragrances. No harsh chemicals. No more odors! Our grand prize winner will receive a 3-pack set of Fresh Wave's odor removing gel, odor removing packs, and odor removing spray (all available at Target!). Check out my review of this deodorizing set!
Baby Jack & Co Learning Lovey
Going away to day care or school for the first time can be a scary and lonely experience, and a child might find great comfort in having with them a lovey they have grown attached to... such as a Baby Jack & Co lovey, or sensory tag blanket and toy, which is great for babies and kids of all ages. Our grand prize winner will receive one Learning Lovey (design of winner's choice), an educational blanket that encourages early learning of basic shapes, colors, letters and numbers. Ribbons on tag blankets allow for comfort, entertainment and tactile stimulation as kids develop cognitively, socially and emotionally through sensory play. They love to rub, chew and play with the ribbons. Ribbons are sewn shut for added safety to avoid tiny fingers from getting stuck in loops (read more about this unique safety design here)! Not only are these loveys cute, comforting, and educational, they're also a family affair - all prints are designed by the company's founder - a mother, along with her two young children!! How great is that!? Baby Jack & Co Loveys can be purchased (for about $25) on their website or Amazon.
Grow With Me Tee
I'm a sucker for a good photo opp prop, and Grow With Me Tee has 3 different kinds!! You've got the "Baby's First Year", which is a 12 months sized onesie with a clock on the front - you check off each month and take a pic of the baby in the onesie and watch them fill it out more and more til their first birthday!! Next, you have the "Preschool Years" t-shirt with a ruler and you color in each half birthday from 1 to 5 years old (see my review here). This is the PERFECT first birthday present!! Finally, you have the "school years" shirt which is a collegiate style tee with the year they will graduate high school on it. Obviously the earlier you have them start in it the more dramatic the first and last pictures will be, but really it's a great gift to any school aged child entering any grade! Our grand prize winner will receive their choice of any one of these 3 designs. (See my review of the toddler and grade schooler tees here).
Fundanoodle products and activities are designed by elementary school teachers and pediatric occupational therapists to help children develop the motor skills needed to succeed in and out of the classroom. Utilizing these tools at home, parents can create a fun and relaxed learning environment for their child. It's a new direct sales company, so you can shop through an independent ambassador's website or online/in-home party, and you can also become an ambassador with all the perks such as income, discounts, and freebies!
Say goodbye to "healthy" electrolyte replacement drinks full of artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners, and say hello to Wubba Water - a children's hydration drink free of synthetic dyes, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners, and GMO's! Colored only with fruit and vegetable extracts and having only 1 gram of organic sugar per serving, Wubba Water is a healthier way for your little one to replenish water and electrolytes when sick (and they'll get a Vitamin C boost to boot)! You can find Wubba Water at Whole Foods (in the TriState area) and on Amazon, and our grand prize winner will receive a 3-pack (one of each flavor - blue raspberry, fruit punch, and orange).
So, are you super psyched!?!?! This giveaway is open to US residents ages 18 and over. Simply enter to win in the Rafflecopter box below - the more actions you take in the box, the more points you rack up and the higher your chance of winning. So, get to it and GOOD LUCK!!!! The giveaway will end at 11:59PM EST Thursday, September 15. The winners will be randomly selected, e-mailed on the 16th, and given 24 hours to respond before new winners are selected (so keep an eye on your junk box!).
