Merry Christmas: A Corolle doll and Playmobil truck for you!

Updated to add: Congratulations to lucky winner number 10! A Crafty Mom! Enjoy!


The panic can set it at any second now. It's the second week of December and I am nowhere near finished with Christmas shopping. I'm like a deer caught in headlights—frozen, not knowing where to start or where to go first. I have my shopping list, though. So I'm at least ready to hit the stores. If only I could find the time...

Have you finished holiday shopping for your children yet? No? Well, don't worry—I'm going to make your shopping a little easier for you—I'm giving away a gorgeous Corolle baby doll, complete with stroller, and a Playmobil Road Maintenance Truck, thanks to Tag Along Toys!

There are only a handful of stores in Ottawa that sell the high quality toys I like to buy for my children, and Tag Along Toys is one of those stores. From a large Lego and Playmobil section, to educational board games, books and crafts, there is something special here for every child.

I love the Intelliglobe for my five year old, and I'm buying a few more Automoblox cars for my almost three year old. There are so many wonderful things at Tag Along Toys, including plasma cars, but the best part is the friendly and personalized service you receive when you walk through the front doors. It's a refreshing change of pace from Toys R Us.

As a mom of two little boys, we don't have many dolls in our house, but my youngest son does have a doll he loves to take care of, and it's the sweetest thing ever. Corolle dolls are amazing—soft, cute, adorable, and they smell oh-so-good. I'm giving away Bébé Chéri Elise (retail value $89.99)—she even comes with her very own beret and scarf!

I'm also giving away a Playmobil Road Maintenance Truck (retail value $69.99)! My five year old has the entire Playmobil construction set, including this truck that I got for him last Christmas. Playmobil makes amazing trucks, and your kids will have fun playing with this truck for hours. (Hey, even I like playing with it!)

If you want to win these amazing products, just leave me a comment below telling me what will make you the happiest this holiday season.

Bonus entry number 2: Follow @TagAlongToys on Twitter!

This giveaway is open to Canadian and US residents!

I'll pick a winner randomly on December 13th!

Good Luck!

What an amazing prize pack. I would be the happiest person on the planet this Christmas if my parents could see my children walk down the staircase Christmas Morning. Just to have them experience that special memory with my 3 monkeys would be all I need this Christmas.

That doll is adorable - we have another Corolle doll and my daughter loves her so much (and has asked for another for Christmas!). What would make me happy this season would be knowing I made a positive difference in one person's life this holiday.

I do already follow your blog, and I followed TagAlongToys on Twitter too!

Travelling to be with my extended family this year makes me very happy! My kids are very excited about Christmas at Gramma's house.

Lynn said...

A very quiet Christmas Eve at home with a big glass of wine will make me very happy, indeed.

karen said...

Wathing my children open their gifts on Christmas morning will make me the happiest. Seeing their faces light up knowing that Santa actually brought what they wanted is priceless.

smyke said...

What will make me the happiest is knowing I am all done shopping, baking, decorating and can relax and enjoy the Xmas season with my 2 little ones :)

Happiness this holiday season = healthy kids and husband, lots of time to play in the snow, take pictures and share stories together at dinner gatherings and more. I'm especially looking forward to two weeks off with my kids and husband at home. It has never happened before and we're all looking forward to fun activities and lots family time. After all, there's nothing more important than family:)

Love your blog Loukia and follow you on Twitter. Will check out the toy company you spoke of today:)

Thanks for sharing:)

What makes me happiest this year, it's my baby's first Christmas and my four year old is just getting to be old enough to start to understand what Christmas is really about.

Holy smokes this is an amazing giveaway! My kids would freak out - a truck and a doll is the perfect combo.

What would make me happiest this Christmas? Besides world peace and a cure for cancer, I'd be happy with everyone getting along fantastically on Christmas day AND having my kids actually eat their dinner without issue.

The dirt/pebbles made me run screaming from the Playmobile road construction set, and instead I have minuscule piece of pirate coins.

The COOLEST toys, regardless.

Marie said...

The thing that would make me happiest this Christmas is to see my mom get to relax and put her feet up. She works in retail so this is the busiest time of year for her.

Lou! How I've missed you.

LOVED the Christmas post. Adorable. I'd like one of each of those things, too. Preferably the trip to the South of France, please.

You know how much I love Corolle. I'd love to win this for my Zoe. And the Playmobile truck is FAB... Jack is HOOKED!

What would make me the happiest is the look on my boy's face when he sees his Christmas presents. Oh, and a decent night's sleep on Christmas Eve. Can Santa deliver ZZZZs?
