GIVEAWAY: I Built It! Games: Snakes & Ladders! (US) -CLOSED-


I Built It! Games has a great game out now called Snakes & Ladders!  The best thing about these games is that your child is able to personalize them with pictures.  They can color sheets that are provided, color sheets provided online, put in a picture of themselves..friends..or anything!

I love that the board, pieces and even the dice are oversized.  It's perfect for my 3 year old.  After we played the game together (she won and I did not let she played with the game pieces for the rest of the day.  :)  The board has a great jungle theme and we liked it when we got to slide down the snake. lol

I Built It! Games also has Chess, Checkers, Memory Match + Tic Tac Toe and more.  Games are $19.99 and up.  And with the ability to create and change your pieces the game stays fresh for much longer.

It's great that there are no little pieces or cards with this game.  I find those all through out my house from other games.  They never seem to stay with the game because they end up as toys themselves.   I Built It! Games are creative and fun!

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
