A giveaway for play silks (because everyone needs to play!)

It's no secret that Ro and Ree love to play. It's the first thing they do when they wake up, the last thing they do before bedtime, and the main goal of everything in between. And the more far-fetched and imaginative the play, the better, in their opinions (and mine!). So, in the spirit of imaginative play, we're offering a fun giveaway from Dream Spun Kids (don't you just love that store name?). The giveaway is for a set of 3 Extra Large Play Silks in your choice of colors. playsilks 001 If Ro and Ree got their hands on these bright, flowy play silks they'd use them as shimmery tablecloths in their elaborate tea parties, tie them into fancy princess headbands, or wrap their bodies in colorful billowy silks and put on dance shows. Fun stuff. To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment below mentioning your favorite item in the Dream Spun Kids store. Comments/entries will be accepted until midnight on Sunday 5/24. The winner will be drawn at random and announced the morning of the 25th. PS: You can get bonus entries by posting about the contest on your blog, getting a friend to enter the contest and say that you referred them, or buying something from Dream Spun Kids.

  1. that bandanna dress makes me sad I don't have girls to dress up.
    My boys could still work those silks though.

  8. I too loved the ruffled Bloomers. Why don't they sell packs of bloomers at the store, I hate when Dressses don't come with Bloomers!

  9. What a fun little store. The Strolling Skirt is perfect! I LOVE it. All the ruffles are just right for our house-full of girls. And some DIY, too. I have the sewing maching, if I could only find some TIME :)

    And what a cutie model on that site :)

    Thanks for having such a fun give away!

    Totally off subject... We're waiting on TA to bring home our twin girls from china (currently 11 months old!!), and we were wondering if you could share any advice regarding attachment and what you did to help your girls attach so well and become so happy and well adjusted? Any advice for us first time twin parents?

  24. All I'd have to do to excite the Tongginator is simply say the words "Magic Fairy Princess Ribbon Wand." She wouldn't even have to SEE it to fall in love with it. But I'd rather her have the silks... so versatile.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh i love the Bandana dress CUTE!

    Oh such fun!! The girlishness of those ruffled tutu footless tights is sublime...Thanks for the fun giveaway. Fushia, lemon and orange on the silks, should I be so lucky to win. BTW, I saw a fashion lay-out in the waiting room that looked like Ree and Ro's fashions all grown up. Has anyone else mentioned it to you? I don't know what magazine it was, but it is a recent issue. Happiness to you! Jen

  36. I'd say it's a tie between the Magic Fairy Princess Wand and the play silks! What a cute website.

    ReplyDelete
  37. L would have a blast with these silks, she would probably use them as veils or skirts. I checked out the etsy store and you were right she is fabulous. I love the cha cha skirt. L would wear that one all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ooh! It's a close tie between the strolling skirt and the cha cha skirt. I have such a girly girl, she'd wear skirts and prettiesALL. THE. TIME. if things like bathing and swimming lessons didn't hamper that desire.

  45. By far, my favorite things are the play silks. I've long wanted a set for my girls. I can just see them dancing and twirling during their ukulele dance parties, and then turning them immediately into 50 other things.

    Great giveaway!

  57. I like the silks idea and I also like the ribbon wand. I wonder, however, what the silks have to do with being a vegan?

    I couldn't be a vegetarian. I like bacon too much :)

    ReplyDelete
