Style Kid: Review and Giveaway!


My two year old just started saying "I love shopping" last week.  I was in shock, but for some reason, everyone seems to think that she learned that phrase from me!
I'm always on the look out for cool, unique, interesting, functional, practical, eco-friendly, safe products for my toddler, so when I was asked to review a product of my choosing from StyleKid.ca, I was really excited. The only problem was which item I would choose!
StyleKid.ca is a super cool, super fun retailer for all things baby and kid. Shopping online for some of the greatest baby and kid items could not be easier! They carry many well-known and trusted brand names and everything from baby carriers to toys, accessories, and kids' room decor!

I had a very difficult time deciding which item to review.  The Zoo Packs from Skip*Hop caught  my eye, as I was looking for a backpack for Little One. I needed something sturdy, well-made, durable, big enough to carry the things she needs while out and about, yet small enough to not tip her over!  Little One is a tiny toddler, so finding a bag small enough for her to carry is a challenge.
 I chose the Penguin Zoo Pack by Skip*Hop for her. Actually, she chose it! I wanted to get her the owl, but she kept saying "Pingu! Pingu!" while she sat on my lap, checking out StyleKid.ca with me!

I think it is safe to say that we made the right decision. Little One absolutely LOVES her backpack and refuses to take it off. She even slept with it last night! 

It's roomy enough to carry her books, sippy cup, snacks, and other items, but small enough that she can carry it with ease. She's so tiny, that almost every other kid bag makes her topple over!  We are both very pleased with the backpack and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

-BPA-Free, Phthalate-free, PVC Free
-Roomy main compartment
-Insulated pouch for snacks
-Adjustable mesh bottle pocket
-Padded, adjustable comfy straps
-Write-on nametag inside
-Easy to clean lining
-10" width x 4" depth x 11.5" height


She looks like such a big girl in this pic :( She put her rain boots, hat and backpack on, and  headed for the door. She told me, "I shopping, Mama! See you!" She looks like she's almost ready for school in this photo!


If you are a new parent, a grandparent, aunt, uncle, or even if you just have a special little one in your life, I highly recommend checking out StyleKid.ca! I spent hours scouring their website, as I have a zillion baby showers to attend in the next few months! I know babies are born all year round, but for some reason, Spring seems to be Baby Shower Season!

GOOD NEWS!!! StyleKid.ca is giving one of my readers a $50 gift certificate for their store!


WIN!
To enter, you must go over to StyleKid.ca and check out their site, come back here and leave me a comment telling me which item(s) you would choose if you won the gift certificate!

I just want you to know that I had WAY too much fun looking through StyleKid.ca and spent time browsing that should have been spent doing other things (such as planning my day for tomorrow, getting my lunch ready, folding laundry, etc.).

Here's how I would spend the $50 (I think):

Original Goodbyn™ - Blue by Goodbyn($29.95)
http://www.stylekid.ca/store/product.php?productid=22978&cat=278&page=2

Personalizaed Placemat - Alphabet Soup ($12.95) http://www.stylekid.ca/store/product.php?productid=24432&cat=462&page=1

Mute Button Pacifier - White by Ulubulu ($6.95) http://www.stylekid.ca/store/product.php?productid=23818&cat=312&page=1

The other option would be to put the $50 towards a twin bedding set - so many to choose but I like these best:
Hunting Lodge and Town Road Quilt and Pillow Sham
(country vs. city...hmmm...)
