Step Right Up to The Nest's First Giveaway

Anyone struggling with finding unusual but lovely stocking fillers for children?
~
Let me help you.
~
I have decided to have a giveaway.
~
When I had my shop I used to have some lovely things for children and have a few bits left over so have decided to give them away to one lucky winner.
~
I went to a trade show in Paris a few times and came across a lovely company called Les Choupinettes. They made a modern version of the paper dress up doll. These dolls are made out of a kind of plastic (a bit like a credit card) and have velcro clothes which can be changed. One of the things I loved about these dolls is that they can be taken along anywhere - I'm all for toys that can be taken in the car on long journeys or can keep kids occupied at tables in restaurants so these were a hit for me. I am giving away one of these dolls (Zoe la fee) and a spare set of clothes.
~
Next up for grabs are two Rosie Flo colouring books. The beauty of these books is that the bodies are already drawn and kids just have to add heads and colour away! The books are themed and I have Rosie Flo's garden and Rosie Flo's games to give away.
~
And last but not least I'm going to give a lovely pack on birthday invitations. These have a lovely ballerina on them and are very girly!
I then thought that this kind of leaves out anyone with just boys so had a rummage and have come up with a male alternative!
~
Les Choupinettes did a boy 'doll' - we won't however refer to him as a doll - we shall call him an action hero. He is Arthure et son Amure. He comes with his Royal atire and his full battle armour but unfortunately there were no spare clothes available for poor Arthure. Just goes to show that boys don't need as many clothes as we girls do!
~
In addition to that I have a Build your own snowman kit. This kit has everything you need to make a snowman except the snow. No more hunting for carrots, buttons, coal, an old scarf..... NO - this set contains wooden versions of the lot - wooden carrot nose, wooden buttons, wooden pipe... plus a felt scarf and felt hat. In spite of the fact that we only have about one day of snow in the UK a year these were really popular!
~
Also a set of Christmas plasters/band aids and a pack of 8 really cool party invitations with a drummer on them.
I'm so sorry my pictures are so awful - I may try to take better ones in daylight tomorrow.
~
OK - so now onto how you can win:-
~
1. Become a follower - the obvious one first (one entry)
~
2. leave a comment - not just any comment - tell me what you would like to find in your stocking this Christmas (I said what, not who!) - another entry
~
3. Post a link to this giveaway on your blog/site - another entry
~
At least three chances to win
~
If you win let me know whether you want the boy prize or the girl prize.
~
Entry closes at Midnight (British Standard time) on Friday 11th.
~
I'll have my kids pull out the winning name/number on Saturday and will post it straight away.
~
Good luck x
