THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW OVER, Congrats to Tara at Deal Seeking Mom!
Now and then I get invited to do fun things with other bloggers, and I feel so blessed by these special events. I see them as a way to connect with writers I love, to chat with marketing and media people I’d love to get to know better, and to partner with the companies who care, and are reaching out to us mothers. It’s win-win all around when it’s done right, and done with good intentions.
Yesterday was just such an event, and I’m thrilled that I get to share it with you and also giveaway (!!) something fun so you too can have the fun experience my family and I had!
Ridemakerz, coming from the same people behind Build-a-Bear, have really out done themselves when it comes to building a destination type store that kids and parents both love. We were invited to the store yesterday with several other bloggers and their families, and given the royal treatment. We got to go through the store, choosing each of our own “rides” (yes, each of us got our own, including me!), customizing, building, and having a blast while doing it.
At Ridemakerz you basically build a sweet customized car, from the body on up, a la Build-a-Bear style. You can add things like sounds, a monster upgrade (i.e. a TALL ride!) and or even make them radio control. You can also have birthday parties there, and lest you think this is just for the boy set–they have pink and turquoise and girly things too.
Not only is Ridemakerz having a great Black Friday deal (free radio control upgrade with any Ride purchase–$25 value), but they’ve also given me a $75 Ridemakerz gift card to giveaway to one of you!
Even if you don’t have a store near you, you can still buy online, so here’s how to enter:
1. Click over to Ridemakerz and leave a comment on this post, telling me which Ride you’d get.
2. Get additional entries by tweeting or posting about this contest (comment separately for each entry and include the url)
3. Contest ends this Friday (Nov 28th) at noon!
Good luck! Big thanks again to the team at Ridemakerz for giving our family such a fun day and for BSM Media for pulling the whole thing together!
