Our Dream Machine! :) - you can win one!

This is our Dream Machine from Build A Dream Playhouse!!  Cute right?  Putting this car together was so much easier than I thought it would be.  The only hard part was keeping my children out of it for that long. :)  punks.  The directions were simple to follow and once you figured out step 1, the rest went smoothly.

It will be easy to take apart and then put back together if we want to store it for a season.  If you don't want to put anything together you can get the Pop n' Play Kitchen or Castle!  Also the fact that my 2 yr old hasn't destroyed it yet is a testament to it's durability.  I'm very happy with it!!


It's in our living room for now. They put their little chairs in it and watch tv through the window..lol  Needless to say, they love it!!  It will also be a great deck toy for us, assuming it stops raining here for awhile.   :):)

If you want to win a playhouse of your choice enter the giveaway!  It ends on 6/14.

GIVEAWAY: SLAP Watch! (US) -CLOSED-

Winner

Have you heard of a SLAP Watch?  They just slap right on and look awesome!
There are 9 colors available and you can EASILY switch out the faces, so if you had all 9 watches you'd have 81 possibilities!!  There is also a SLAP Jr. which is a smaller size.  They come in 6 different colors currently.


The SLAP Watch was on Ellen.  If you want to watch the video it's the very last item she talks about, and then she gives them out to the audience!  I tried out the black & blue in SLAP Jr., and I wear them all the time!  It only came off once when my son kicked it off of me (don't ask).  The interchangeable faces just pop in and out.



Each watch comes with it's same color face, so if you want to switch out colors you would need at least 2 watches.  The SLAP Watch is $19.95 and the SLAP Jr. is $17.95.  They even have some package deals if you want different colored bands.  These would make great gifts for Father's day!  After my husband saw mine he wanted one in t…
