Good for the Kids Giveaway! UPDATE WINNERS PICKED

UPDATE EMILY AND GEORGIE C ARE THE WINNERS. You should get your gift certificates emailed directly to you, so keep your eye on your inbox. Thanks for playing all!

You know what I love to do? Give stuff to readers. Yeehaw!

Good for the Kids is an awesome site set up, "to help parents find great deals on unique items you need to make your life easier." I was looking around spending imaginary money and Oh Em Gee, what fabulous dress-ups, play food, imaginative toys, parenting accessories, the list goes ON AND ON!

The giveaway: I have two $25 gift certificates for two lucky winners. This is lovely for SO many reasons. You get to pick exactly what your heart desires, and it's open to international entrants! EVERYONE can enter! Squee!

(Personally I would use the $25 towards one of the role-play dress-up costumes, most likely the firefighter).

The rules: Leave me a comment on this post telling me the name of one item you would buy from Good for the Kids. Comments that don't include this information will not be counted. One entry per person please. Contest closes at 11:59pm (Pacific Time) on Saturday, May 9th. I will use a random.org to select two winners on Sunday. If your email address is not built into your profile information, please leave your email address in your comment, so that I can easily contact you if you win. If I can't get in touch with you, I can't get you your prize. I'd leave it formatted as "example at example dot com", so as to avoid spam possibilities.
You can earn an additional entry by tweeting the giveaway and leaving an additional comment including the url to the tweet. You can access the url to an individual tweet by clicking on the time it was posted (it took me MONTHS to figure that out). If your twits are protected, include your username so I can follow you. That way I can see it.

Unrelated to this giveaway but still good info:
All orders of $40 or more qualify for a FREE Ty Stuffed Plush OR Nuby Sippy Cup Pack!
All Melissa & Doug items are 10% off.
Use the coupon MAYDAY, and you can get an ADDITIONAL 15% off any order now through May 10th.
(You can find the details for all of these promotions here)

Disclosure: I am receiving an arts and crafts thank you gift for hosting this giveaway, but am not otherwise paid by or affiliated with Good for the Kids. It is my own opinion that they offer a wide variety of quality items.
