The gorgeous, huggable Zoobie Pets! Available at Gifts by KCreely

This is one of my favourite blogs to write as I absolutely love this product. Who needs stuffed toys that just sit on shelves gathering dust when you can have a cute friend that also can be a pillow and blanket! If you are looking for a unique gift for someone this Winter I'm sure you could find a Zoobie Pet to suit!

Miss J has Calyx the Caterpillar who came all the way to us from Gifts by KCreely. You can see him in his put away form in the bottom picture or directly below when J was using him when we went away on holidays recently.

I love that it can be used as a toy to play games with, become a pillow, become a pillow with blanket or you can detach the blanket and just use that. I was surprised by the size of the blanket, both M & J were using it on the couch to snuggle under and watch TV on a cold morning. The quality of the features are great too, no more eyes falling off or stitches coming undone. RRP is $49.95 but at Gifts by KCreely you can get Calyx here for $39.95 on special or if you buy 2 of the other animals you get $10 off your purchase so no fighting over blankets!

There is a huge range including Bing the Bumblebee, Lilly the Ladybug and Ellema the Elephant, you are sure to find a character or colour to suit your child's taste or to match their room. The blankets are super soft and the squishy faces have microbeads in them.

I must say though I am DYING to try one of the story licenced characters, I can't decide which is my favourite! How do you choose between Paddington Bear, the Very Hungry Caterpillar, Spot and Peter Rabbit? Below is the Paddington Bear one, he would look gorgeous sitting on anyones bed and ready to be bought out when an extra blanket is needed or for snuggles on the couch on a rainy afternoon.

The Storytime Pals are RRP $59.95 but if you preorder they are just $49.95 plus free postage! The designs on the blankets of the Storytime Pals set them apart from any other blanket.

The lovely Kirsti from Gifts by KCreely has offered one Bub & Moo reader a special price of $35 for one of the Storytime Pals! Such a generous offer. If you would like to purchase one at this price leave a comment about which Storytime Pal you would get and also your email if you aren't a follower of our facebook page so we can get in contact if you win. Ends 15th May.

 You can find all the Zoobie Pets on their facebook page and use the contact page if you have any further enquiries.

Agoo & the gift of giving

Most blog followers know how much I love Agoo, part of that love for the brand is the fantastic people behind the business. Susan and Alison are the faces behind Agoo, there to answer your questions at odd hours of the night, solve any problems you are having and sending out those gorgeous items  at super speed even during their awesome sales!

It was late last night when Susan came to me with her idea, as you can imagine her children have a LOT of fantastic clothing so she wanted to pay her girls Easter gift from Alison's family forward.

What we would like is for you to nominate a child that you think deserves a bit of Agoo. Have they been unwell? Accomplished something amazing? You let us know here and Alison's kids will judge who they think needs the Agoo. Would be a great surprise for some families.

One entry per person and the it runs from now until Sunday the 8th May at Midnight. If you are not a follower of Bub & Moo or Agoo Australias facebook pages please leave a contact email so we can tell you if you win!

I see red!

After 3 girls and the first 12 months where nearly everything you find is only in pink it's nice to dress them in other colours!

Today when we hit Fremantle J was my red girl! I've always loved red (must be the Aries in me, firey!) and I think it goes with her dark hair though she insists pink is her favourite colour followed by green.

These are my current faves of red in her wardrobe and I'll start at the top.

The ladybug hair pins are by Button Heads. They come in a princess pack with a headband and bow clip aswell for $19.95. The packs make great presents and a range of colours.

Next is the very cool Hot Air Balloon Tee by Two Belles, you can grab it from A Little Bit of Cheek for $39.95 but they also have a sale on all Two Belles and Tommy Rocket where you buy any 2 items & get 20% off, buy any 3 items & get 30% off, buy any 4 items & get 40% off!! (including sale items!) I ♥ Two Belles, very cool but not to grown up.

The red jeans are by OUCH, they are last years stock which I bought ahead and for a bargain price but after a google search you can still grab them at My Wild Child for $29.94 on sale but they only have size 6 left, Bambini Emporium also have them for $29.95 and still have size 4, 5 & 6 in stock! I love that they have the adjustable waist so they will last her until it heats up again at the end of the year. OUCH always has great quality & designs, probably the brand we have most of in our house.

Finally the very cool shoes are Vans. These were the last pair in my local surf shop and luckily a size above what Jayde was in but fit perfect with a thick pair of socks now and they had marked them down to clear the stock! I can't seem to find them anywhere online but check your local surfstore to see if they are clearing them, great slipon and go shoes.

Hopefully I can find some more colour combinations and may even attempt *gasp* pink! Just in case Mums of girls can't find anything ;-) and will have to borrow a nephew or 2 and do some boys outfits too.

That was super fast!

With Jessica sending nearly the whole 45 likers we needed to get there it ended up with only 2 in the draw, her and Tara!

I went to and put both names in and this is what it came up with....

Congrats Tara! I'll be in touch with you about your prize. Jessica as you didn't win but did so much work to help the numbers up I'll let you choose the day and time that we will start our 1,750 giveaway (within reason, no 2ams please!!! lol) for the bigger prize :)

Let's get there!

Only 45 likers to our 1750 giveaway so to help things along lets have a little giveaway until then.

All you have to do is get 2 people to join our page and say you sent them then post yourself what your fave item from the Easter blog was and you are in the draw!

The prize is between a choice of items so we can find something that suits and will be drawn when we make the 1,750 target!
