HaPe Giveaway

This giveaway has ended. Thanks to all that entered!
So my Holiday Giveaways are coming to an end. But don't worry, the giveaways don't end here! I was lucky enough to get to review a HaPe E-Racer Bamboo car and it's been a huge hit.
HaPe has created a Bamboo Collection of toys including Games, E-Racers, and Bamboo Creative Play all made with natural bamboo. HaPe even created a Bamboo Sunshine Dollhouse!!It took years for HaPe to figure out how to properly cut, saw, file, and dye the bamboo since it is a sensitive material. But they were able to figure it out and created wonderful bamboo toys and games! Right now they carry over 14 different games from the Bamboo Collection.

Ella is a girly girl at heart, but she does love cars, trucks, airplanes and dinosaurs. When she saw the bamboo E-Racer she flipped out. I got rid of all of her old plastic cars, so she's been carless for a while. When I gave her the E-Racer she immediately used her blocks to build a road for her car to drive down and had a blast. She loved pushing the car by the silver roof (handles?). It glides easily and would be a blast for any child who likes cars.

I personally love that you can tell the car body is actual bamboo. It's really unique! The car is made with raw materials and the paint is water based. Safety is always HaPe's top concern, so you know your child is playing with non-toxic, quality toys. You can buy the E-Racer from HaPe for only $19.95!
