Win A Handmade Tiny Amigurumi Teddy!

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

You know what we haven't done on this here blog in ages? A giveaway!

I'm always coming across cute things that I want to share with you guys, but- I don't want to takeover this space with posts of all of the "I wants", ya know? I need to save room for all of the "watch my kid stomp in puddles!" and "check out my giant lop sided baby belly" posts. But sometimes, every once in awhile, I have the opportunity to share the "I want" with you, so today, thats exactly what I'm going to do...

Dawn over at Lost Sentiments, has so graciously offered up a handmade tiny amigurumi teddy of your choice, to one of our lucky friends (that would be you).

I could give you a million reasons why I love these teddy's, but I've got a loaf of brown rice bread to bake, an entire downstairs worth of hardwood floors to clean, and a child (who is in her bedroom for time out for the next hour, due to rudely knocking her brother down the slide, stealing his plastic tool toys, running away laughing about it, and then kicking me multiple times) to yell at- so I'll only be able to give you a few (reasons, for liking them, in case you got lost in the my-child-is-a-beast rant).

And some of those reasons are...

I really like faceless characters. Faceless being, nothing I've seen on a commercial for anything, ever. Friends that come with previously determined attitudes or expectations (I adored Strawberry Shortcake when I was a little girl, but according to her, and now my daughter, there should be cream and sugar added to everything) turn my child's playtime into a headache. Its not always so bad (we still indulge in the occasional Pooh Bear or Donkey from Shrek toy), but I prefer it when she really has to put that imagination of hers to work, to bring a new friend to life.

These little guys are handmade, they come from a smoke free pet free home. And they're so itsy bitsy cute (standing at only 4" tall).

These amigurumi bears are machine washable! YES!! ...I can't stand it when my kids have a toy that is "spot clean only", because really- can you spot clean only anything, after its been in tiny little applesauce covered hands? No matter how hard we try to wipe down the applesauce from in between the fingers when getting the little ones down from the table, it still manages to appear out of nowhere, doesn't it?

Can you tell I'm having kind of a rough morning? My husband started swing shift yesterday, things are hectic. And the monster is out of timeout now.

To win a lil' amigurumi teddy friend of your own, simply visit Dawn's Etsy shop Lost Sentiments (click that link right there, or the giveaway image a few paragraphs up), have a look around, and then come back here and tell us which teddy you'd want to win, and why. And make sure to leave your email, or some way for me to get a hold of you. Otherwise, thats called a giveaway fail. And I don't want anybody to fail!

This giveaway is open to both US and Canadian residents. Heck lets just go ahead and make it worldwide, won't we? Anybody can win.

This giveaway will close on Tuesday June 15th. The winner will be contacted by email the next day (Wednesday the 16th).

Ok, so- recap. Visit Dawn's shop. Leave a comment saying which tiny bear you'd like to win (and why). Leave your email. Anyone can win.

Good luck!!

Awww, those are all sooo cute! But I would have to say "Coffee" because the color is perfect for a messy little girl! And it is just so darn CUTE!

My first inclination was Violet, since it's my favorite color and Addie just learned how to say purple, BUT I just love Coffee.

So coffee it is, hope I'm lucky!

P.S. I hope your day goes a little smoother little momma!

How cute. I'd have to go with the Coffee teddy!! :D Perfect.

Great giveaway! They are really interesting teddies : )

MY FAVOURITE IS COFFEE! I love the colour and cute!

Gotta have "Show Stopper"! That pink beauty is perfect for my lonely teddy (rubix cube) that I have now!

Please don't stand in the way of true love..

I like Daniel. I love how he has blue paws, and I'm a fan of brown anyway! Brown and Orange are Fall colors to me, and I've been aching for Fall lately. :)

Oh Mandie! June 8, 2010 at 12:12 PM  

Aww, those bears are too stinkin' cute! I think I'd have to go with Coffee too, but Sage is a close second!

Allison @ I heart Change June 8, 2010 at 12:14 PM  

I really like the Sage - Amigurumi Teddy.

I think gifts that are handmade are absolutely the best. They're beautiful, they're extra special, and they're not crap based on a movie or a show that encourages the gimmies. (Not a fan of the gimmies.)

I would want to win the Shelby teddy, since that shade of blue is my favorite color and these bears are adorable. :)

beka June 8, 2010 at 12:56 PM  

*laughs* Okay, I love the she's-a-monster rant; good thing everyone has those days, right? It's not jsut a couple of the unlucky crowd of momma's.

Aw, those bears are so cute!

Chana June 8, 2010 at 1:39 PM  

Totally raspberry!! Hello?!?! What an adorable item!! And can I just say that your post yesterday almost brought me to my knees with envy? YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL! (and brave).

Nen June 8, 2010 at 3:02 PM  

yea! i love giveaways!

i would love the Coffee Bear w/ the bow tie! this is going to sound strange, but when my husband and i were dating... i started calling him CoryBear as a pet name. when i found out that we were going to have a baby, i started calling him DaddyBear (he secretly loves it!). so it would only be appropriate to add a bear for "baby bear"... and since we don't want to know the sex of the baby... brown seems like the most appropriate color!

ok... now that you think i'm weird... i'm off!

Oh, I have such a hard time picking between teddy bears! I'm a little bit of a teddy addict! :0) I think I have to go with Emma though. Just so perfect and proper. I liked her 'personality", though I know that sounds crazy! lol!

Danielle @ "We Don't Have It All Together" June 8, 2010 at 5:43 PM  

Those ARE cute! My favorite is the "Show Stopper". It was between that one & the Raspberry one.

I would just love Violet! I'm a purple kind of girl! And those little green paws are so adorable!

I'm a big kid now (17, hehe) and I think the perfect thing for me right now would be a bit of imagination time! :)


The Paper Mama June 8, 2010 at 6:48 PM  

Oh man. I like coffee... Just like everyone else! ;)I'd like to win this because: Seriously.... who spot cleans baby toys? My baby wants to chew on that!


Anonymous,  June 8, 2010 at 10:21 PM  

They are all adorable but my pick would be Emma. I could put it next to a chocolate brown teddy I made when I was a kid so they could keep each other company on my shelf.


Krystle June 10, 2010 at 4:01 PM  

Oh it's hard to choose! I'd love to give violet a home. I think mommies should loveys too.

soul_searching_mama June 10, 2010 at 5:53 PM  

Awwww they are adorable! I loved the Daniel Tiny Amigurumi Teddy on her site. One because I liked the colors and two because it is just freakin' adorable! Thanks for the opportunity to win one! :)
