I‘m back for another Home for the Holidays giveaway! We’ve got 15 giveaways across the entire network this week—all great gift ideas, perfect for the holidays.
So last year I was psyched to give my daughter a dollhouse as one of our giveaway items. This year, it’s the boys’ turn! I can’t wait to see their faces when they open this on Christmas:
Not only that, Hearthsong is also including Connectagons in today’s giveaway:
These are going to Tate for Christmas—the girl loves to build things, so I know she’ll love them.
Together, these two items total a prize package of $100!
Learn more about these toys and how to win them.
So our marble run review took place at night, after the kids were in bed. We can’t spoil the surprise.
Needless to say, Kyle was happy to help with the review.
We both had a ball playing with this thing. It’s sturdy, easy to assemble, and limitless. It inherently fosters open-ended, creative play—my favorite kind of play.
Now, I wasn’t sure about the quality before it arrived in the mail, because I prefer wooden toys. But this marble run really is quality-made and sturdy. It’ll last us a long time, and our kids play with toys hard. Plus, I like that the sound effects are optional (I have a serious aversion to sound-making toys)—simply don’t include the batteries.
I’m also psyched to have a set of Connectagons in the house! My niece and nephew have a set of these, and my kids love playing with them when we visit. They also foster open-ended play because you can build anything with them—the only limit is creativity. Knowing Tate, she’ll probably be building a house or farm on Christmas morning.
I adore Hearthsong (really!) because they’re adamant about providing children with age-appropriate, wholesome, quality playthings. They care about kids being kids. You won’t find any icky toys here, and I love supporting a business that provides quality, family-friendly products at decent prices. Win! I’ll gladly point relatives to Hearthsong when they need gift ideas.
