It is Giveaway time! CONTEST CLOSED

Photobucket

I am so excited to be participating in this enormous carnival. I have had a great time each time it has been done and am excited to be giving away my prizes. Here is what you can win:


That's right! There are four cute stuffed animals made by me. That means I will have four lucky winners at the end of the week.

Now for the rules:
  • This contest is open to everyone! These cuties are light enough that they are not going to cost me a fortune in shipping and I want my international readers to be able to get in on the fun.
  • I must have a way to contact you. Please make sure that you have a link to an email address because I would hate to have you loose out on a chance to win.
  • One entry per person.
  • Flattery never hurts.
  • I will pick the winners on Saturday February 2.
  • Please make sure that you answer the contest question. If you do not, I will not count it as an entry. Sorry!
Ok, now how to enter my contest: I have a lot of fond memories of playing with toys when I was a kid. I want to know what was your favorite toy and why was it so fun for you? Answer that simple question and you have an entry into my contest, that's it!

My favorite toys were Legos, because I liked "building" things.

Jessica said...

I loved my Cabbage Patch Kid dolls. I loved to pretend to be a mother and use these as my babies.

Crunchy Domestic Goddess said...

those are adorable! :)
my favorite toys were my 3 cabbage patch kids. i still have them.
thanks!

Mean Mommy said...

I can't believe you made those toys...and clothes for them! Incredible!

My favorite toy growing up is a toss up between Barbies and dirt. I loved to dress up the Barbies, mostly. They didn't do much except get dressed up for various outings which they never actually went on. And drive around in shoes. The dirt was my experimental kitchen. Digging for nice muddy dirt, using a sieve for 'soft dirt,' etc. And then I'd make various dishes accented with leaves, seeds, and weeds.

Susan said...

Oh those are so adorable! I've always loved stuffed animals. My favorite toys growing up, though, were baby dolls.

Jessica B. said...

I loved my My Little Pony "nursery" playset.

Stacey said...

I loved my Easy Bake oven.

suzzcq70 said...

I loved that thing with the lemon on the end that you put around your ankle and swing it around so you have to jump over it again and again. Do you know what I mean?

Nick and Megan...and Chelsea too! said...

I loved my little ponies...and still have them tucked away. :) Thanks for a great giveaway!!

GreenStyleMom said...

I love handmade items! My favorite toys growing up were my stuffed animals.

Guinevere Meadow said...

I adored stuffed animals. I had whole zoo full of them! When I was a very little girl, I would spread out my blanket on the floor, get out my tea set, and have a tea party with all by bears, bunnies, cats, dogs, horses, fish, monsters, and anyone else who wanted to join!

kellli said...

I was a Barbie girl. I made up outrageous adventures for them!

Tama said...

My favorite toy was my "Easy Bake Oven" and my favorite thing to cook in it was mud pies. I loved dirt and the clay soil around our house made the most beautiful mud pies you ever saw--the alkali made a love white "sugar" frosting on top when they were "done" cooking. My grandad would pretend to eat them and told me that I made the best mud pies he'd ever eaten. I still love dirt (geology)and making pies (cherry, apple, etc.--no mud).

Edi said...

Cute stuffed toys...I have no talent whatsoever in making stuff like that - but I can appreciate it.

Count me in!

Stephanie said...

I love handmade stuff and my girls love stuffed animals! I loved paperdolls growing up.

Leone said...

My favorite toys were my Strawberry Shortcake dolls. Now that they've re-released them, my two and one year olds play with them.

I know how much time it must take to make these adorable friends. Thanks for sharing them!

denyse said...

You have great talent- I loved pick up sticks...not sure why!
No lead in these babies!!!!!

Christy Lee said...

My favorite stuffed animal was a stuffed bunny I got for Easter when I was 5...(20 years ago)...we went on vacation and I was afraid the Easter Bunny wouldn't be able to find me, but he did, and left me Molly. Molly is still on my bed, so you know that any animal I received would have a good, lifelong home! :-)

Someone Being Me said...

Those are adorable. I loved my dollhouse. Something about having all the tiny furniture and decorations. I just loved it.

InnaC said...

These are so cute! :)

My favorite toy was a blue stuffed rabbit. I carried it everywhere.
Then we moved to another country and it was lost in the move. :(

lifeasamama said...

my favorite toy as a kid was books. seriously, i could have cared less about all my other toys, as long as i had books. my daughter, at 14 months, is EXACTLY the same way. except for dolls and stuffed animals. everything else? not quite as cool. she has to be able to hug it or flip pages. :)

bouncy said...

adorable animals!

I loved coloring, so pencils, fancy papers and watercolors were my favorite.

Amanda said...

I loved Barbies, but I would have loved your stuffed animals even more! If I win, can I have the blue rabbit? He is so cute!!! If I don't win, can I bribe you for a blue rabbit?

If it influences your decision at all, he would be called Babbit the Blue Rabbit and he would inhabit a shelf in my scrapbooking room to torture my children for the rest of their days. Sounds like a good life, right?

Pick me, pick me, pick me!

Wendy said...

Great giveaway:) Count me in! They are adorable!! My favorite toy was my brothers matchbo cars:)

Bree said...

I loved my Cabbage Patch babies!

The Princess said...

My favorite toy was an elephant stuffed animal because she was the perfect size to go everywhere with me.

Damselfly said...

Oh, you are the greatest blogger/stuffed-animal-maker I know!

My favorite toy as a kid was a marionette Cinderella. I wanted her so badly and got her as a gift for my kindergarten graduation. (And I rarely asked my parents for *anything*.) I was really too young for a marionette, though, and the strings were always getting tangled.

Jenny said...

I've been looking for stuffed animals that aren't made in China to give to my baby girl, these would be perfect! So cute!

My favorite toy was my Barbie Dream House with the elevator. I liked playing house and dressing Barbie in all her cool clothes.

My favorite toy was a sock monkey that my Grandma had made. I still have it and I'm now in my mid 40's. Thanks for the great giveaway. My sons would be thrilled with one of these.

GoofyJ said...

How cool are you??!! I am so impressed! I love home made stuffed animals. I remember when my mom made me a teddy bear - it was bright fuzzy red and it had a jingle bell inside, I carried it every where and called it my red jingle-bear. When we moved before my 12th b-day my Dad was left with the packing and it accidentally got left behind - I still remember and miss that bear. Your boys will treasure these (I assume you made some for them too) :) for years to come.

Jeni said...

My favorite toy was a small stuffed bear that my grandparents gave me for my 3rd birthday. It was just the right size to tuck on my toddler hip and carry around. It had a music box that played "Brahms Lullaby," so to this day I refer to it as my "Doo doo doo" bear. (You know, the song goes, "Doo doo doo, doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo...")

T'aowyn said...

I loved my lite bright. I could make different designs and I would keep it on as a night light.

Laura @ Laura Williams' Musings said...

Those are adorable!!

My fave toy when I was 7 & 8 was a Baby That-A-Way doll. She used batteries and when you sat her on her bottom she would wave. She would crawl when you put her on the floor. That doll is now 32 years old and sits on a shelf at my Mom's.


Thanks for the giveaway!

Stop by my place to win a bath set & candles or one of two copies of a book I'm giving away.

My favorite toys were a stuffed bear couple. My dad bought them for me when I was young and I still have them. What a great giveaway! I'd love to participate!

Mommy said...

Please count me in your contest. Those are sooo adorable! My favorite toy was my stuffed lambie. I took him everywhere. Then I liked my baby dolls and barbie dolls.Thank you for offering such a nice prize! :)

Sarah said...

Oh geez, how to pick a favorite. Legos. Heart-to-heart bear (when you hugged it, you could feel a "real" heartbeat). Barbies. Frogs and salamanders. What a variety!

I love your little handmade animals. I have a 5 y.o., a 3 1/2 y.o., and an almost-2-y.o. who would love to share these! Thanks for the chance to win. Nothing compares to handmade, IMO. :-)

amyswandering said...

Those are so cute! One of my favorites was a doll that sneezed.

devildogwife said...

I'm answering on behalf of my daughter as she very much would like the stuffed animals.

Her favorite "toy" is currently her Daddy Doll as it keeps her company while Daddy is away.

toblerone said...

These are so cute! My daughter would love them.

Is it nerdy that my favorite childhood toy was books? Probably.

Gina said...

I think my favorite toys were my Barbies, which included Ken and Skipper and some other unkown chick with brunette hair.

I would spend hours playing "house" with them, using my parents' barstools as "apartment lofts" or some such thing.

Wheeee! What fun!

eyeslikesugar said...

You are so talented! I wish I could make homemade stuffed animals near as nice! My favourite toy is the one I still have. My stuffed blanket bunnies which I still sleep with. *blush* I've had them since I was a baby. =)

Tia said...

My favourite toy was my "Manda the Panda" stuffed bear; I loved her so much my mother had to make her a whole new fluffy tummy as I wore her out!

chelle said...

Melanie said...

my favourite toys belonged to my cousin. a suitcase full of barbies and her mum made hundreds of outfits for them.

Sarah said...

I had a set of paper dolls that had a huge wardrobe from the late 1800's. I played with them the way that some girls play Barbie. They were my favorite for years.

Your stuffed animals are adorable. Thanks for the chance to win!

Betsy said...

I loved Barbies and her Dream House. It wasn't mine though, it was my best friends. I never had Barbies and all the pretty clothes like she had. I loved to dress them up and fix their hair.

My dd saw the picture of your animals and she said "enter that one Mommy!". She loves stuffed animals.

Katie said...

I loved (still love) my stuffed raccoon. I used to carry it around by the tail, which would always get ripped off and need to be sewn back on. Thanks mom!

Playful Professional said...

I really loved playing with Barbie dolls because I could dress them up and go on dates :)

Paige said...

Those are darling! I had so many stuffed animals as a kid, they were my favorite toys.

Heather said...

What cute stuffed animals! You did a great job on them. My youngest is a stuffed animal lover! He is always looking for another to add to his collection. He saw those on the screen and said "Miiiii" which means MINE in the language of a toddler.

On My Mind said...

Hmmmm... perhaps my (now vintage!) little people? They always allowed for such great creative play.

I LOVE these little animals! These are so cute! They remind me of the sock monkey I had growing up. My favorite thing growing up was a dress up trunk of clothes. Thanks! prettybritty425 @ gmail .com

Stacie said...

My favorite toy was a crocheted rabbit that my grandmother made for me. I was so attached to it that my mother had to get her to make another one so she could swap in the spare and swap out my favorite rabbit, cleverly named "Favorite" and wash it. Both Favorite and Mr, Whiskers, the spare, are in my closet on my shelf to this day. My own children play with the bears she made for me.

Paisley said...

Those are adorable! You are so talented! I loved playing with paper dolls, Barbies, and stuffed animals, but baby dolls scared me!

Jenna said...

I had a bear that did just about everything with me when I was litte... from cuddling in for a nap to being carried around the backyard on a pitch fork when I had killed the bear and was bringing it home for dinner (we were playing pioneers, after all). Your toys are adorable!

Kristi said...

Okay...here's a long-ish story. Remember the year that Cabbage Patch Dolls were first out and nobody could get one? I, too, desperately wanted a cabbage patch doll but my dad and new step-mom couldn't find one anywhere. They were shopping for a new van at the time and they couldn't decide between two vans. There was a free tv if they bought from one dealer or a cabbage patch doll if they bought from the other. They bought a van that they wouldn't necessarily have bought just so that I could get a cabbage patch doll for Christmas. It has remained a special toy from my childhood just because of the love tat my dad and step-mom showed to get it for me.

Chad and Amy said...

Those are so cute!! My favorite or most cherished toy growing up was a doll made by my mother. She still has it put away for my little girl to have someday.

Please count me in on the drawing. Thanks!

Marly said...

I had a huge doll named Judy. She was my best friend. Up until I was almost four, we even shared clothes!

Erin said...

Your handmade toys are adorable!

I had this enormous stuffed dog, that laid on the floor and was close to four feet long. I loved curling up on top of him, with a book to read. Sometimes I'd lay my head back & pull his floppy ears over my eyes to play peek-a-boo with. He was awesome!

Linda said...

enter me please. ernestsgirl82@aol.com I loved baby dolls!

heather h said...

Oh these are so cute! My favorite toy when I was little was a yellow and white gingham doll. She had yellow yarn hair. I put garish makeup all over her. She's in my baby's nursery now. It was a given she'd have a place of honor in there!

Lucy said...

I love homemade toys. These are adorable. My favorite toy as a kid was my little pony. One year I am pretty sure that was all I got for my birthday. Thanks.

My favorite was a bear I named after my father, Otis. I used to pretend that Otis would have slumber parties in my bed and fill up my bed with all my stuffed animals. They used to get in trouble for talking all the time! hehe

seven said...

My favorite toys were a set of Cabbage Patch twins that I got for Christmas one year. We were poor, but my dad was determined that "his kids were going to have a good Christmas, darnit." So my parents went into debt for the first time in their marriage, and I got the Cabbage Patch twins, along with a bunk bed that my dad built and had a nameplate put on, with little mattresses and pillows and blankets and sheets that my mom made, and 5 or 6 matching outfits for my twin dolls that my mom sewed as well. That was the first Christmas that I remember, and I never knew until much later that it was a stressful time for my parents.

Christine said...

I had a little stuffed unicorn that I loved. I don't know why but I adored that toy, and now my daughter plays with it, even though U-nee is extremely ratty. Thanks for entering me.

My favorite toy growing up was my Barbie. (I hate to admit that) - I didn't have many toys (single poor mom) and was bought one for my birthday and I cherished her.

You are very talented!!!

Meg said...

I was a Barbie girl all the way. I'd set up elaborate houses and stores for them. These stuffed animals are so cute!! ( meg.wilson@gmail.com )

Miss Vida said...

I love your stuffed animals....they are super cute!

My favorite was a pink bear that was super soft with a rattle in the butt.

I still have it and your animals look like the kind that will last for years to come as well.

Chas said...

Very cute!! My daughter would love these.

My favorite toys were probably my Barbies. I played with those for years...secretly until I was probably about 14. Sad, I know.

Nordly said...

I've always wanted to make stuffed animals and yours are so adorable!

My favorite toy was a huge teddy bear. Here's the story: my sister and I are 1 year apart, so we always had to share our toys. One day, we went shopping with my mom and her sister (my aunt), and we fell in love with this huge teddy bear (the size of a large toddler). My aunt saw how much we loved it, and she bought us one each: I got a brown and pink bear, my sister got a black and white one. We dragged those bears everywhere, until years later, my bear started falling apart at the stitches, and my sister spilled milk on hers, and it never smelled the same again. :(

Great contest btw! I hadn't really thought about that bear for years :)

Anastasia said...

Cuuuuute!!! I love them! :)

My fav toys as a kid were a pair of stuffed Snoopy and Belle dogs :) (I think her name was Belle :D) They were sooooo big and plush and heavy. You could play with them AND use them for pillows :) I loved them LD

I had a wooden cradle made by a gentleman in my church. It was a cradle, a dashboard (upside down), a table (still upside down), a stepstool...on and on. I still have it, and am just waiting for my daughter to get big enough to play with it.

I hope I win! Thanks for the giveaway. My email addy is in my blogger profile, just in case I'm lucky.

Audra Marie said...

I loved my babies and stuffed animals because I enjoyed 'feeding' them and making them sit for 'school lessons'. :) Apparently, I still like to do this since I'm a homeschooling mama of six with five furry pets. Hmmm. :)

These are great and my youngest two would love these. :)

Thanks for the chance to win! :)

I loved my Legos and my Barbies because I could create anything. However, my favorite things to do were read (anything I could get my hands on) and play school. I suppose that explains my English Education degree. =)

Linda SS said...

I loved my Sandy Bear (who after 53 yrs of love, really is bare:) I'd love to add one of your cute animals to my playroom for when my little grandkids visit.

My favorite toys where little people..the old wooden ones. And my john deer tractors:-)

Shama-Lama Mama said...

Oh my gosh... how cute are those!? I especially love the little ones on the left side. Darling...

I actually loved stuffed animals the most. Never cared for dolls. I remember my rabbit, "Bunny", and my teddy bear, "Bear", had a big wedding and all the other animals came.

It was a big day!

Midlife Midwife said...

hmmm, my favorite toy? My little brother. Who else would let you play "Stay away from the stink bug" and make them the stink bug. And no one but an adoring brother would be so gracious as to try tasting my epicurian delight mud pies. Yup, definitely, my favorite toy was my little brother. (Can you believe he still talks to me?)

Amanda said...

Thanks for choosing me as a substitute winner! I e-mailed you with my address.
