EcoKids Play Dough Giveaway

Homemade play dough is something I always intend to make, but never get accomplished.  I bought all of the ingredients for it over a year ago. 

I still haven’t made a new batch.

So play dough is something my kids don’t get to play with a lot, unless Sarah makes it for us or I have an urge to get out a bunch of cream of tartar. 

Until recently.

Enter EcoMom, an online store that features Eco-friendly Baby Products.  I’ve decided to become a little picky about the products that I review and then share with you.  What I sample at home has to be a book or something that is sustainable, non-toxic, considered green, holistic, or organic.  It has to be something that I “think” I would want to give as a gift or use with my own family.

For starters, the CEO and Co-Founder of EcoMom has a great name . . . Jody.  Now I have issues with how he spells his name, but I appreciate his vision and heart for launching EcoMom.   He gave me an awesome opportunity to review one of their top-selling products, Eco Kids Play Dough and offer you the opportunity to WIN a $15 gift certificate plus free shipping.  And for those of you who don’t win, you can use the discount code (now) SBBL432 over at EcoMom until July 30, 2010 for 15% off.

Plain and simple, I let the kids review this product.

I told them that this was a gift from EcoMom to them . . . and I wanted their opinion on it.  I would then share about our experience on THE BLOG.   

This was Mr. Smiley’s first time to experience this squishy texture that you can manipulate with your hands but not eat.

Once he learned that he wasn’t allowed to eat this good smelling stuff, he spent about an hour (seriously) exploring this new medium.

He discovered that you could stick things in it.

Now his brothers . . . they told me to NEVER buy the stinky stuff at the store again.  Not only was that other stuff gross, but it smelled and was too crumbly.

Humph . . . they chose the good “green” stuff.  Yahoo!  Pat on the back to me.  I’m excited to see that they can appreciate and lean more towards products that are good and safe for them.

Thumbs up from Granola Mom . . . and as you can see, the boys heart this stuff.
