Colorful Childhood Store Giveaway

This giveaway has ended. Thanks to all that entered!
Want to find toys that will bring out the creative side in your child? Then you've got to check out Colorful Childhood Store! All of their products are made right here in the US or Canada and are sure to inspire your child's imagination. You can find play houses, aprons, splashmats, step stools, dress up clothes, fun room decor and much more!


One of my favorites is the "Dream. Create. Play." line which includes the Eco-friendly Paintable Toy Houses. This is an awesome alternative to plastic, particle board or fiberboard doll houses. Particle board and fiberboard are treated with a formaldehyde resin. Particles can be released into the air, especially with newer products. Formaldehyde is considered a human carcinogen and 99.9% of the chemical is contained within the particle board by the curing process. That's a scary thought when majority of the doll houses and play houses are made with the boards. I love that there is a safe alternative with Colorful Childhood Store's Play and Toy houses.

We were sent the Country Cottage Toy House, which quickly became the house for the "poor Indians" who lived in the tee pee. Yes, Ella has quite the imagination. You can choose between the Cottage House, Barn, School House or Fire House. The cool thing about the Toy House is that you get to paint it the way you want it!You are sent non-toxic watercolors to paint your 100% recycled material house. You can paint the inside and the outside of the house with the paint, crayons or markers. The board is sturdy and is built to last. The roof is detachable and easy to open and close for painting. The Cottage also has a front door which your child's characters can go in and out. It also has windows and a fire place.
The Colorful Childhood Store also carries larger castles, play houses, rocket ships and more that your child can actually get into. Your child can also paint or color these for a personalized look. Isn't that cute??The Discount: You can get $5 off any purchase at the Colorful Childhood Store by entering MOTHERS at the checkout... and shipping is ALWAYS free!
