Go Green Giveaway Event Sponsor Spotlight: Gween Toys

Little boys love to build.  They'll build with anything...blocks, sticks, green beans, mud balls...they don't care as long as it's stackable.  My boys are no exception to this rule.  In fact, Stinky is an especially avid builder.  He loves piling things one on top of another!

Stinky's very favorite things to stack right now are Gwomies by Gween Toys!  Never heard of them?  You have now! 

Gween Toys is an amazing company that is a really neat company that specializes in innovative children's toys that promote education, entertainment, and eco-friendliness.  With toys ages 2-3 and 3-5, there's something perfect for each of your toddlers and preschoolers!  Not only will each of the toys you purchase from Gween Toys have some learning component, it will be able to be used in many different ways and it'll be hand made from wood and colored with natural dyes!  There's nothing better than beautiful, sustainable toys for our little ones!

Let me show you why you'll love Gwomies (and so will your little one):

When you take that pretty white wrapper off the box, you'll find this:


an adorable coloring page that your 4 year old will fall in love with and carry around for hours.  Then, inside the box you'll find these:


20 beautiful, stackable "blocks" of various shapes, some with holes in the bottom, some without.  Some with posts coming out of the tops, some without.  They're gorgeous.  They're smooth as can be.  I want to sit down and build, and I'm a grown up.  My baby boy?  Well, I suppose he's not a baby anymore, but he'll sit for a full 30 minutes THIRTY MINUTES stacking and unstacking and restacking these blocks!



Yes, Stinky runs around in just a diaper most of the time.  You can't get much more natural than that, can you?  I love that not only does my 19 month old love Gwomies (I know, I know...they say 2+...but why can't a 1 year old build?), my 4 year old AND 6 year old love them as well!


Check out that tongue!  Bugsy is REALLY concentrating!  I also love that, somehow, Gwomies promote cooperative play--at least in my kids!  They're stacking and learning together!


(Also, they're giggling, not fighting.  That's always a plus!)
The most unfortunate thing about Gwomies by Gween Toys is that the box isn't very sturdy, so I'll be finding a different storage container.  Is that a big deal?  No.  Does it effect the quality, the purpose, or the function of the toys?  Absolutely NOT!  

Gwomies by Gween Toys.  Amazing.  Simple.  Beautiful. 


Check out Gween Toys at their website, on facebook, and on twitter!  (Feel free to tell them I sent you.  It won't help you win anything, but it's always nice to know where you're getting your traffic!)  And be prepared.  Next week, you'll have the chance to win a set of your very own right here on My This N That Life!


Want an extra enty into the Go Green Giveaway Event (on My This N That Life only)?  Leave a comment here telling me which Gween Toy you'd like to own and who would play with it!
