Hey, look, I know things are a mess. I took a hiatus from blogging and decided to switch up my design before returning. Please be patient, because if you can wait out the mess it means REGULAR POSTING WILL RETURN SOON! :D

Giveaway: Toy Mailbox!

Well, I promised a giveaway and here it is! CSN Stores is sponsoring this one. I especially love their toys and games site. They also have a furniture web store with some more great stuff for little ones like kid bedding and kid furniture. I was approached to do a review/giveaway and given the chance to browse the store for an item I’d like to review. The hardest part was choosing just one item. The pretend play items on their toy site are awesome {the play kitchen items, like the toy stand mixers, are adorable}! But, in the end, I chose this:
toy pretend mail mailbox giveaway
I even showed you how to make some cute pretend mail. I like this toy because
  1. It’s just small and adorable and
  2. It encourages pretend play.
At first Lucy was frustrated with it because she had trouble opening the little door. But we filled it with cat litter to weigh it down and now she can open and shut it no problem. My only complaint is that the box is a little small. If you make your pretend mail just a little smaller then mine that won’t be a big deal. Though, it would have been nice to be able to fit Lucy’s actual mail in it {sometimes she gets greeting cards and each month she gets a mini magazine called Wild Animal Baby – thanks Grandma!}. Other than that it’s great! It’s plastic, so it’s easy to clean and would be suitable for outdoor play {wouldn’t it look great outside a play house?}.
And now for your chance to win one!
Here are the rules {I’m keeping it simple this time}:
You must live in Canada or the US. And you must leave a comment on this post.
That’s pretty much it. Your comment can be about anything, how badly you want to win, what the weather is like where you are, whatever. I’m not picky. You can get one extra entry by blogging about the giveaway {leave a link to the POST, not to your blog homepage, in a separate comment to get the extra entry}.
I’ll use random.org to select a winner next week. I’ll close entries Friday morning and post the winner Friday afternoon {good way to kick off the weekend, no?}.
Good luck!

PLEASE NOTE: You must be able to be contacted through your post {either by leaving your e-mail or by having your blog linked through your name}. Anonymous entries will not count.

I'm excited about this giveaway! My son has the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Home which has a little mailbox attached to it and he LOVES to check the mail! I'm sure he would have a blast having 2 mailboxes, he'll probably start pretending to be a mailman. *lol*

Courtney said...

I loved your post on the pretend mail and my kids would totally love a pretend mailbox! They love to walk down the street with me to get the mail, and it's even better when there is something for them in it!

imemary said...

Man, it sure is raining a lot today. A mailbox inside would be quite convenient.

Courtney said...

I blogged about your giveaway and how I think that you are rather funny.


Kamity said...

Pretend play is my favorite. Especially when it doesn't involve batteries. :)

Joy said...

What an adorable mailbox and equally cute model showing it off.
Thank you for hosting!!

Michelle B said...

This looks awesome my little boy would love this

Melodie said...

My kids love getting mail. It would be fun to have this so they could get it all the time! I think if I did we would start making our own mail, maybe out of felt? Anyway, terrific giveaway. Sign me up!

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

Oooh, I would love to win the mailbox! Gotta have something to put all that cute mail in that you posted about the other day.

Hehe, I said "posted." You know, mail? Post?

Ah, whatever. :)

Rosanna =) said...

I used to LOVE getting mail as a kid and my dad said, "you won't be so excited about it when you're older. All you get are bills!" lol

Mom and I were out shopping yesterday and found a mailbox similar to this. She thought it was awesome! But we just couldn't swing the cost of it. She used to make her own pretend toys for me, 22 years ago. Now the two of us are going to spoil my 9 month old. :)

Beth said...

My daughter loves helping me get the mail. She would really enjoy this.

My son would love the mailbox.. considering he is too little to get the mail out of our own mailbox and soon i won't be able to pick him up anymore.

Crissy said...

I would love to win this mailbox! That would be most awesome! Because then I could send letters to baby K and put her mail that she gets in her own mailbox!
