BlogFest 2010

This weekend, I am participating in BlogFest 2010. It runs now through the 12th. BlogFest 2010 is where you get to see many great blogs from all over the world. And what's great is, you get to win prizes!

Head over to A Journey Of Books to learn more about BlogFest and how to win prizes.

I am sure you all have enjoyed looking at the other blogs and now, it's your turn to win something here! Are you ready?

To one lucky follower, I am giving away a prize that you get to pick!  Your choices:

Infants: Baby Moves Lullaby Blankie
Stimulate your baby's world with ultra-soft Lullaby Blankie! Baby will enjoy exploring the soothing teether, plush star, satin corners, crinkle sun and applique moon. Machine washable. 9"x9"

Toddler: Tangiball
Once your baby wraps his little hands around this ball, he won't want to put it down. With its nubby texture, crystalline brilliance and light vanilla scent, Tangiball stimulates all of baby's senses at once. Baby can squeeze it, squeak it, sniff it, roll it, and even kick it for gross motor development. 4" diameter.
Preschool: ABC & 123 Wipe Clean Workbooks
Preschoolers trace, stick and learn their letters and numbers with this set of two wipe-clean activity books. Includes 2 soft cover books, 18 pages & 100 photographic stickers each.
School Years: Puzzle Island
Here's an interactive parent-child activity book you'll both enjoy. As you work together to uncover the secrets on every page, you'll sharpen your observation and reasoning skills while developing the patience it takes to make it through. Soft cover with 24 pages.







Ways to enter:
Mandatory (1 entry each)
1. Follow my blog and leave a comment that you did.
2. Go to www.playsmartstore.com and comment which toy is your favorite

Optional (1 additional entry each)
1. Follow me to Twitter and comment that you did.
2. Friend me on Facebook and comment that you did.
3. Sign up for my Newsletter and comment that you did.

Contest ends Sept. 12 at midnight.  Winner will be picked at random and contact to pick prize.  Good luck to all!

Now, hop on over to Simply Ali and check out her steamy romance novels!
