Toydle! Another Great Christmas Gift! And We're Giving Away Three for Free!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Giveaways!


So, what is this wonderful product that I've been talking about for the past couple of days?

It's called a Toydle Toy Fort.

Have your child(ren) ever draped blankets over the couches and chairs and crawled under them?

Have they ever tried to build a fortress out of limbs or left over wood around your home?

Have they ever build these structures only them have them fall apart.or have to be taken down soon after it was built?

Or, worse yet, has your child ever gotten hurt because of faulty or just plain "not made for fort building" materials?

Well, never fear, Toydle Toy Forts are here!

Toydle Toy Forts is the invention of Robert Brownfield. Robert had brought home a toy for his son Ike and five minutes after he presented the toy to his son, it had met it's fate in a heap on the driveway concrete. Rob had already been making quality products with the company of which he was president. After some thought he realized that he could build better, long lasting, more durable toys than what was on the market today, so he began his own company - Toydle. One of the first products he produced was the Toydle Toy Fort. And better yet, it's completely manufactured in American! Take a look at one of the ingenious forts that was build using one of Toydle's Toy Fort kits.


All you do is throw some blankets or tarps over the top and - voila - you have a sturdy fort that can be played in, taken down, and put together again in whatever creative design your child wants. To see a video of a Toydle Toy Fort being put together, just click here or on any one of the hi-lighted links above to get to the Toydle website. The forts come in two different sizes. The regular Toydle Toy Fort sells for $149 and the Big Toydle Fort sells for $229.99. Each comes with specially cut, sturdy, tubes, hand made connector blocks, clips and a handy dandy carry bag. Better yet, everything is unconditionally guaranteed! The Toydle website says that they will replace anything even if a block was left out in the rain of a tube breaks because a child tried to do a pull-up on it - it's guaranteed!

But wait! After you head to the Toydle website, head over to the TOS Homeschool Crew blog because the TOS Homeschool Crew is giving away THREE of the BIG Toydle Forts. The Crew blog has all of the details, just click here. I'll be checking back to see who wins. It would be really neat if one of my readers is able to put one of these neat forts under the tree for Christmas.

NOTE: The above mentioned contest is open to residents of the United States ONLY. TOS Staff and TOS Crew Members (and their families) are not eligible to enter this contest.

 a toy. But it's one of the neatest toys. We got it today

 and the kids love it. I'm pledged not to say anything

 specific until Thursday. So, tune in on Thursday to

find out what that absolute neatest, coolest, most

Mission in Action TV - Episode One - Hope and Survival in the Philippine floods
Topic: Compassion International

You all know how much I love Compassion International. A little over a week ago, as a member of Compassion Bloggers, I was invited to blog about a new partnership that Compassion International has with Mission in Action TV. Mission in Action TV is a brand new organization that is going around the world and reporting on the amazing things that God is doing through it's member organizations. Compassion International is one of those organizations.

I'm a little late in getting started - Mission in Action TV has already aired four episodes and I am just today posting the first one! In the weeks ahead I will try to post each as they come out, or, you can watch each episode on the Mission in Action TV website and read more about this organization and the mission organizations that it partners with. Just click here or on any of the hi-lighted links above. If you wish to know more about Compassion International click here.

Enjoy the video.

Celebrating Advent - 40 Days of Seeking Him
Topic: Blog Carnivals!

For the past few years I have endeavored to celebrate advent with my family. Some years it has been a great success. During other years we have struggled at times. Still, we enjoy being together as a family. This year, again, we are going to celebrate the advent season. Today was the first day of advent, but we will observe it later this week. We are trying something new this year. Something I am anxious to blog about. As in previous years I am going to blog about our successes and failures, but this year I am also going to take part in an advent blog meme. Each week I will link up my post with others who are taking the "40 Days of Seeking Him - Advent 2011" challenge. Whenever I post I will be displaying the banner above. Click on it to see what others are doing and how their family advent times are going. Perhaps we will glean from each other to make this advent season a special and joyous one.
