CLOSED! Happy St. Patrick's Day GIVEAWAY!

C loves loveys. She loves to hug all stuffed animals and to "pet" all her blankets. It came as no surprise, then, that she would love her monkey lovey from Grandma. (note the monkey theme? we have lots of monkey toys and monkey apparel)


In honor of her monkey lovey, I would like to give away two loveys to two other babes (or friends of babes) for them to love on. One is definitely girly and one is gender neutral. You can see the pink puppy and green frog below:



and their close-ups:



To enter:
1) Please leave a comment about what you used to love as a child. For me, it was the Mutsy puppies. I always wanted a pet and asked Santa for a puppy every Christmas. Alas, all I ever got was Mutsy but he was better than nothing!

2) For an extra entry: if you've ever left a comment on my blog before, lucky you! I love reading your comments! They make me smile! So, post a second entry if you've commented before :)

3) If you are a follower or a subscriber (or want to be), you can have a third entry. Woo hoo, i know you're so excited to win these loveys :)

The details:

I'll draw TWO random comments by using randominteger.org on Sunday, March 21st! Stay tuned for details. (So two people can win). If you win and do not have a blog, please leave me another way of contacting you (unless I know you personally and already have your details :)

April said...

I also loved dolls, but I don't remember ever having a specific lovey. Both of my girls have them. My older daughter has a blankie and my younger daughter has to have her dolls.

OMG I loved the Mutsy puppies too. My great aunt had one and I just HAD to have one. She loved hers so much she was buried with it, and I still have mine. It's gone around the world with me.

When I was little, I loved my blue blankey. It was a small square blanket with satin on the edges. I'd love the green frog for my little guy!

baby alive was my fave until my cousin broke her, and then it was a calico kitty stuffy my grandparents gave me

The Nealons said...

I was a Cabbage Patch Kid girl. My dad even had one made for me for my first birthday that was bigger than me! I still have her and if I have a little girl I will pass that keepsake on to her. :) (Gotta love yarn for hair, ya know!)

The Nealons said...

Oh yeah, I also loved my "Lolly Dolly". I don't know if that is the formal name for it, but it was a Fisher Price, pink & white gingham doll with a rattle inside. I still have her too and she is in Connor's toy box, but my mom found a current "boy" version for him that he enjoys too.

This is so great! When I was 2 I got a stuffed teddy bear that was just as big as I was. I'm almost 28 now....and still sleep with 'Ted'. He's had a rough life, but I just can't give him up.

My favorite thing as a child was my two white blankies that my Grammy knitted for me. One of them was originally Kristin's but I somehow adopted it and still have them on my bed now!

I had a doll I called "honey". I took her with me EVERYWHERE. I still have her, but she's pretty worn out. I'm surprised I liked her so much since she's made out of a plastic head (not very soft to cuddle). Thanks for the lotto!

My favorite thing as a child was the swings. I could swing for hours as long as someone pushed me and they didn't leave.

When I was 5 My mom had a brain stem aneurysm after giving birth to my baby sister. I lived with my grandma for a year. For Christmas the family got me a boy cabbage patch doll. Rory was my everything for many years afterwards. He ended up going through 3 bodies (that my aunt sewed) and even has a tattoo birthmark on his head. lol

When I was pregnant with my 2nd child I pulled him out to get my son ready to be a big brother. He so wasn't intreasted in the doll as he always kept bringing it to my room to sleep. 5 days after my daughter arrived she passed away due to a CHD. On one of my hard nights I picked up my little Rory and hugged him tight again. It didn't fix anything but for a moment brought me comfort again.

As I was pregnant with my 2nd son I brought the doll out again for my oldest. This time he really grew to care for the doll. He still plays with him from time to time when his little brother is sleeping and he gets lonesome for a playmate. It's really sweet.

Those lovies are very cute! Please enter me. you can contact me at DS. katycat99
