Back-to-School Giveaway: Smooshies Plush Toys

Tune in all week for hot Back-To-School Giveaways. We’ve got some great prizes for the kids, with a couple of special prizes to pamper mom!!! Look for a new 48-hour giveaway each morning and each afternoon, and be sure to check out all of the current giveaways for other great prizes!

Today's giveaway is especially for all the younger siblings who stand at the window longingly watching their big brothers and sisters head off to school!

Aren't these fuzzy little guys just about the cutest thing ever? Smooshies are basically a fuzzy pillow with velcro arms, legs, features, hair, etc. that allow your child to express their creativity. You can find extra parts to increase the combinations at Michael's and Joann Fabric's.

I don't know which of my kids was more enthralled with the Smooshie. My youngest just loves to snuggle and cuddle with it. But he's also enjoying ripping off random body parts and waving them around with delight. Note: Smooshies are intended for kids ages 3 and older, but I let me little guy give it a whirl while closely supervised.

The older kids got a little creative and got a kick out of seeing what "kooky creation" they could come up with by putting body parts in unusual places. I didn't anticipate my oldest showing much interest, but even he surprised me and decided to get in on the fun.

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a complete Smooshies kit, ready to be snuggled and played with!

We played for hours with barbies. My grandmother made clothes for us so we always had every outfit imaginable.

One of my favorite toys as a kid was this doll that had brown hair with blonde highlights. Depending on how you brushed her hair, sometimes she looked like a blonde, sometimes like a brunette. It was so facinating too me. Such a simple thing too.

I loved to play with my little doll carriage. It got broke and had to be thrown away. :-( I never have found another carriage like it for my daughter to play with. However, she does have a doll stroller to push around!

I loved my popples and my pogo ball. I don't think they have much similar to either of those that I know of.

My favorite toy when I was a kid was my Ballerina Barbie. Tosha doesn't have one, I bought her this other Barbie that has the "dog show" accessories. I wish I had that Barbie...that's one instance where they really don't make 'em like they used to.
