Thinga-Appreciation Giveaway #2 — Baby and Toddler Hair Accessories!
Now, the original contest text…
Holy smokes! It’s a second contest running behind-the-scenes (the first one is still going, too!).
Lil’ Sugarplum will be giving away baby or toddler hair accessories each week to an unsuspecting Thingamababy participant. Don’t have a baby girl? Give a friend a present, or throw the pregnancy dice again.
This is about reader appreciation. To enter, simply read and post comments as you normally do anywhere on Thingamababy (full details below). I will select one user who has posted a comment within the past week as a winner (the first winner gets picked next Saturday).
The winner then selects one hair clip or ponytail holder from the Lil’ Sugarplum website that retails for $7 or $8. Due to variations in how accessories are grouped, that could score you one or several items.
Lil’ Sugarplum hair clips were reviewed on Thingamababy a year ago to my delight. Finally a hair clip that stays in my daughter’s hair all day!
Since then, Monique, the stay-at-home-mom behind Lil’ Sugarplum, has gone crazy creating a bizillion styles of clips, ponytail holders, headbands, stick-on bows and scarves. She is even scoring celebrity product placements with the likes of Brooke Burke and Jason Priestly and donating 2 percent of every sale to the March of Dimes.
The contest is open to residents inside and outside* the United States. *Residents of the International Space Station excluded. Sorry Peggy, Yuri, Clayton, Daniel, Leopold, Garrett and Sheikh, but we’ll be happy to ship to your domestic address in the event you win.
The contest will run for four weeks, and who knows, maybe longer.
Officially, the winner will be selected by me based on my own purely subjective criteria that is free to change from week to week. For the first week, I will choose a winner at random. If I see a rush of empty-headed comments being posted, I’ll change the criteria to a true sense of my personal appreciation, using comment criteria such as thoughtfulness, educational value or humor.
To be eligible, users must include a valid e-mail address in their blog comment. Contacted winners must provide their shipping address to Thingamababy and Lil’ Sugarplum for the purpose of shipping the prize. Ineligible comments are ones identified as spam by my blog software or that I would normally delete myself due to their spammy or offensive nature.
Each of these first four giveaways are for user comments posted Saturday through Friday (Pacific Time) on any blog article anywhere on Thingamababy.com.
- Giveaway #1: comments posted between March. 8 and 14.
- Giveaway #2: comments posted between March 15 and 21.
- Giveaway #3: comments posted between March 22 and 28.
- Giveaway #4: comments posted between March 29 and April 4.
Thanks for reading Thingamababy, and participating!
