AnnieWear Review, 15% off discount code, and Giveaway! - CLOSED

AnnieWear sells animal themed Infant Baby, Toddler Clothing, footwear, diaper bags, baby blankets, toys, books, and more, all inspired by a puppy named Annie.

I received a T-shirt to review for our son from AnnieWear. He was so excited because the shirt was blue and had a cute little dog on the front and a dragonfly too! The T-shirt is very soft and so cute. He wore it to his speech class the other day and slept in it that night. He loved the shirt so much that he wouldn’t let me take it off of him.

One of AnnieWear's key goals is to offer you the most charming collection of high-quality, animal-themed products and gifts online. They began by creating two of their own product lines: the Life Line and the Annie Line. Both offer 100% ring-spun combed cotton onesies and T-shirts in traditional and contemporary colors perfect for boys, girls, and unisex and available in infant or toddler sizes. (Read more about AnnieWear's products and product lines here.)

Purchase a product on the AnnieWear website, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to animal rescue charities! Use code BLOG2011 for 15% percent off your purchase! If you don't want to purchase products online, you can call them directly on their 1-877 number or fax in your order!

Petcakes Series 2 Review (and a Giveaway on their Blog and another Giveaway on their Facebook page!

A few weeks ago I had a review and giveaway for Petcakes - Series 1 plush toys with cupcake wrappers. Now I am posting a review for the NEW Petcakes - Series 2 plush toys!

The NEW Petcakes animals are a Panda (Bamboo Berry), Squirrel (Nutty Nicky), Bear (Honey Cakes), and a Raccoon (Roco Coco)! My children love all of them so much! They take them everywhere we go. They are soft, cuddly and just as cute as the Petcakes Series 1 puppies!

Bamboo Berry - Panda's tag says: "Pleased to meet you. I'm Bamboo Berry the panda. I live in the bamboo patch in Honey Suckle Woods. It's quiet and peaceful there. I eat fresh tender bamboo shoots and for dessert I dream of vanilla cupcakes with berry frosting. Yummy! Roco Coco, Nutty Nicky and Honey Cakes often visit and we share all our cupcakes."

Roco Coco - Raccoon's tag says: "Hi! Nice to meet you! I'm Roco Coco the raccoon and I love Honey Suckle Woods. I sleep all day and come out at night. My friends and I have parties and sit around licking sweet frosting off cupcakes left from family picnics. My best party friend are Honey Cakes, Nutty Nicky and Bamboo Berry."

Nutty Nicky - Squirrel's tag says: Nutty Nicky the squirrel is my name and running up trees is my game. I love chestnuts and walnuts, peanuts and almonds. I put them in the cupcake frostings when I snatch them off the picnic tables in Honey Suckle Woods. I even have a place I hide cupcakes for the winter - You've got to meet my pals Bamboo Berry, Roco Coco, and Honey Cakes."

Honey Cakes - Bear's tag says: "My name is Honey Cakes. I live in Honey Suckle Woods. I look for bee hives and then make friends with the bees. They let me taste their delicious honey. I spread it on my cakes, bread and put scoops of it in my tea. My Honey Suckle Woods friends are - Roco Coco, Nutty Nicky, and Bamboo Berry."

 Honey Cakes the Bear is my favorite! 

Some information about the Petcakes company:

Well Made™ Toy Manufacturing Corporation, introduces PetCakes™, a new collectible plush pet line that will be a sweet treat for children ages 3 & up. Each PetCakes animal features a "frosting" hat, comes nestled in its own cupcake wrapper and has its own whimsical backstory. At first look, children will see a delicious cupcake but will then be surprised by the pet they find snuggled inside! Combining sweet faces and cuddly plush with a clever cupcake theme, PetCakes are collectible and provide hours of open-ended imaginative play. PetCakes make perfect gifts for a special friend and for pet lovers. They are ideal for birthday party favors, stocking stuffers and as rewards for good grades. Most of all, PetCakes deliver the kind of fun kids eat up!

If your child isn't interested in using the cute cupcake wrapper for their Petcakes animal, then they can also be used as Hats! This is one of the many uses for the petcakes wrappers that my children have found.

Petcakes can be purchased online at the Petcakes Store,, Toys R! You can also purchase them at most Toys R Us stores!

Petcakes even came out with Petcakes Minis! If you would like a chance to Win them, check out the Petcakes Blog! They are having a Giveaway for a set of Petcakes Minis! (Giveaway ends May 15th, 2011 at 11:59p.m. EST.)

Hold-On Handles Review and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 5/10

Hold-On Handles are the first stroller accessory and walking rope to help keep one to three children within arm's reach. They easily snap onto strollers and grocery carts. They are also very comfortable to wear to wear on your wrist with your child or children holding onto the Hold-On Handles. They help teach children to stay close to their parents without having to use a child leash and harness. Hold-On Handles are made with lead-free paint and non-toxic materials.

We have had a few chances to try out our Hold-On Handle while grocery shopping. Both of my three and a half year old and almost two year old enjoy holding onto it. It easily hooks onto most strollers and shopping carts. It even has a handle for me to hold onto one end, and have my child holding onto the other end for walks, or when we go somewhere and we don't bring the stroller. Using the Hold-On Handle with my children is helping them to learn to stay close to my husband and I when we are out and about. It's so nice to go places and to not worry so much about their wondering away.

I tried it out on that same day and my twenty month old daughter decided to give it a try. She wouldn't hold onto the handle because of my son putting it on his arm since he was carrying his shoes. So she had to copy him of course. When I put her down and gave her the handle though, my son grabbed the small handle at the top of the Hold-On Handle! So that was cool, and it worked to keep him close.

My husband and I are grateful and thankful for products like the Hold-On Handles. Our son was recently diagnosed with Sensory Integration Disorder and he might also have Autism. (We are currently on the waiting list to be called to make an appointment to get a diagnosis.) He doesn't always listen and it is extremely  important for him that he stay close to us when we are shopping, in parking lots, or outside.

Purchase your Hold-On Handles at Greater Than One! Single Handle Sets are $19.99. Double Handle sets are $27.99. Additional spare handles are $11.99 each.

Greater Than One Kids is generously giving away to one of my readers, One (1) Single Hold-On Handle Set (a $19.99 Value)! Open to U.S. residents only. Giveaway ends on 5/10/2011 at 11:59p.m. CST.
