Armadillo Dreams Wooden Teethers Review and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 5/8 (Rafflecopter)

I really love the Hen & Egg Teether toys from Armadillo Dreams, and so does my nine and a half month old baby girl, Hailey! We keep one of them with us at all times, as she prefers to play with a bite on these then she does anything else! Armadillo Dreams also sells other Wood Teething Toys! 

This week, Armadillo Dreams has launched their NEW website! They have having a GRAND OPENING Sale!!! Everything on their website, from today until April 27th is 25% off! I posted some information below about Armadillo Dreams, in case you wanted to know more! 

About Their Family
Armadillo Dreams is run by Dustin and Amanda Cowell in Redmond, Oregon. They have lived in Central Oregon most of their lives. They met during sophomore year in high school. After graduation they moved to Portland, Oregon for about three years and then moved back. They got married in 2004, had their daughter Lucy in 2007 and their son Lincoln in 2010. They now own a home in Redmond, Oregon where they raise their family, run their business, raise backyard chickens and enjoy gardening. You can learn even more about them, their family and their activities by visiting their blog Wild Armadillos.

About Their Toys
Armadillo Dreams makes waldorf inspired handmade wooden toys. They create baby toys, toddler toys and kids toys. Everything they sell is made from natural materials, is friendly for little hands and is handmade with love! They believe it's important for children to have high quality, natural, simple waldorf toys that they can dream, imagine and play with.

Three Billy Goats Gruff

Their wood toys are handmade out of poplar, sanded very smooth using up to 5 different sanding processes, and are finished with natural beeswax cream to seal the wood. Painted wood toys have a wash of AP certified non-toxic watercolor paint applied. They use a watercolor wash instead of completely coating them so you can still see the wood grain and for a more natural texture. All lines and details are wood burned so they'll never fade away. Edges are hand sanded to round them slightly and make them friendly for little hands. Each wooden toy is made from a different piece of poplar, so grain and slight color variation may occur. Our wooden toys are hand detailed and each has its own personality, but will look very close to the original. All of their designs are hand drawn so you won't find wooden toys like theirs anywhere!

Peter Pan Toy Set (only $52.50 right now, normally $72.00)

Farm Toy Set (only $30, normally $40)
This set can also be purchase with color and with a few more animals too!

Pirate Ship Pull Toy (only $21, normally $28)

Armadillo Dreams is a great family owned business that loves creating wooden toys for children. From simple teething toys, fairies, princesses, pull toys, to play sets, they really seem to know what children like to play with. Even my three and a half year old will grab the wooden hen and egg and play with them when her baby sister doesn't have them. 

Check out Armadillo Dreams today, and purchase some wooden toys for your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or for anyone who loves to collect things! And don't forget, their sale ends on April 27th! 

Enter on Armadillo Dreams for a chance to Win a Three (3) month subscription to Armadillo Toys! Get a NEW toy from Armadillo toys once a month, for 3 months! Giveaway Ends 4/26.

Natural Mosquito Bite Remedies (try at your own risk)

"Due to how terrible the mosquitoes are this year, I am posting this so many of you will know how to treat the area if you or your child are bitten by a mosquito. The best and natural way to treat an insect bite is to use one of the following:

1.) Place a used dry teabag on the bite. 

2.) Rub Raw Honey on the bite.

3.) Apple Cider Vinegar, use a cotton ball and apply ACV to the bite

4.) Baking Soda, this is the cheapest at only $0.30 a box. Take a small amount and add a little water to make a paste and apply the paste to the bite.

5.) Take the skin of a Banana and rub the inside part of the banana on the bite.

6.) Take a leaf off of a Aloe Vera plant and rub the bite with the leaf of the plant.

I hope these Money Saving and Natural Eco-Friendly Ideas help! Please click "SHARE" so others can learn how to save also. Thank you!

Below are some other Remedies that I found, I don't know what works and what doesn't, so this summer, I will have to test some of them out and let you know!
  1. Directly dab on peppermint toothpaste 
  2. Directly apply a lemon slice to affected area
  3. Crush an aspirin and add water to form anti-itching paste
  4. After applying scentless lotion on bite area, rub on table salt
  5. Directly rub on apple cider vinegar 
  6. Dab on ammonia

Disclosure: I found these Mosquito bite Remedies online, on other sites. I don't know what works and what doesn't. As I normally paint my bites with pink caladryl lotion because I know that it instantly works and makes the bites go away within two days, three days at most. So it's up to you if you want to try any of these, but I make no promises that any of these remedies will work or not. I am not a medical professional, and I am not making any medical claims. Airplanes and Dragonflies blog is not responsible if you decide to try any of these remedies for yourself.
