American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win a $114 Mirari Toy Collection

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

If your child is still under 2 years old, you may not have had the experience of going in to a toy store and losing count of the amount of times you say, “Put that back!” It will happen. You’ll give them “the look” when they tell you that you’re being unfair, but under your stern face, you’ll be wishing you could give your kid everything that he wants. Before you experience that guilt, take advantage of this giveaway.

This week we’re giving away an entire Mirari toy collection! Three times!

Mirari, which is latin for “wonder”, has created a fun line of toys that help with fine and gross motor skills, cognitive learning, and sensory and emotional development for ages 6 – 18 months and up. The line includes a Pop! Pop! PianoBusy BuddymyPadWee KeysZig-Zag Xylo Train (look for that one in our Parents Best Toys story coming out this Fall!), and  Roll & Return Ball.

Leave up to one comment a day below for the chance to be one of three lucky winners winning $114 worth of toys, and when your child is old enough to tell you that you’re not being fair, you’ll have this to fall back on.

Read the official rules here. Goody luck!

Congratulations to our winners Karissa Pollard, Bianca johnson, and Amanda Pacurar!
