bla bla kids – review & giveaway!

Print pageEmail page

Blabla kids is the definition of everything fun, without the batteries. Yesterday we had just the best time (over an hour), creatively playing with our new blabla finger puppets! We thought up a wild adventure for our five new friends; Berry, Lollie, Lemonade, Verdi and Leopold (oh yes they have names) and took them through the jungle, across the bridge and through the mighty volcano. Later in the day, I asked Piper where the puppets were, and they were stuffed in her own pockets. She started calling them her “pocket friends”…which I thought was so cute!

These unique puppets provide endless entertainment, are visually stimulating and are made with the highest of craftsmanship from skilled artisans. I was very impressed with the toy, and am sure they will be played with for years to come.


Bla Bla Kids
also offer tons of other soft toys to be gifted and treasured. Some of my personal favorites include the backpacks, the veggie rattle set and the unforgettable boogaloos (how can you resist a doll named Droplet?) I love how unexpected the color combinatins are. The stripes, polkadots, and silly little hats make these soft toys items kids are going to gravitate to.

All the blabla products are made from naturally grown fibers, and crafted in Peru by amazing Peruvian artisans. The toys are completely natural, completely safe…which I love!

Blabla kids has been around since 2001, when best friends Florence Wetterwald & Susan Pritchett created these soft, lovable, beautifully funny creatures. These toys are not run of the mill AT ALL. They are charming, enchanting, unique and magical. A must have, go-to gift idea.

Buy it! Blabla Kids can be purchased online. A set of the adorable finger puppets will run you $25. The to-die for boogaloos are $36.

Win it! Blabla Kids wants to graciously give one Simple reader their very own set of finger puppets (a $25 value)! Here is how you can sign up: simply shop the blabla site, let me know what’s your favorite by leaving a comment – you know, that groovy little yellow box at the top of the right hand side of this post.

If you’d like to be entered TWICE write a blog linking back to this giveaway as well as linking to BlaBla kids. Come back.. leave a second comment letting us know you blogged about it!
If you don’t blog just leave us a “valid” email address so we can contact you.

Winner will be chosen at random Tuesday, May 20th. Good Luck!

    One of the things that make Christmas special is the spirit of giving. As children we can’t wait for Christmas morning to open presents. We thought in terms of receiving. As adults we think in terms of giving. And hopefully, our unique Christmas gift ideas are gifts of love. Men look for just the right gifts for women. Women usually shop for men, their own children as well as others, and for family and friends. Here are some suggestions to get you started. http://unique-christmas-gift-ideas-tips.blogspot.com .
