My kids are a marketers dream. They see it on TV and they want it. It might be that they watch a lot of sprout which airs a tremendous amount of "made for TV" merchandise and commercials or it might be something else but they want all the things that are advertised there, ala: Dream lites, light up pillows, cups that you shake that make ice cream and slurpees, lights you take to the potty and things you stuff crap into. Sometimes I wish they would just ask for normal toys that don't have inflated price points and that I don't have to travel to the far reaches of Bed Bath and Beyond to find.
Well the kids saw a commercial For Bendastix and it just so happens one of my favorite blogs, Being MVP (button on the right hand side) ran a giveaway for them and i won, it softens my cruel cold heart when I get to win something that I would no doubt buy at Christmas time. As a matter of fact one year I won almost all of my Holiday gifts. So a huge thanks goes out to Being MVP, read her, she is awesome and enter her many giveaways too!
