Win-It Wednesday: Dance, Dance Prize Pack (1 Winner!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on February 10, 2016 · 92 comments

Do you have some young ballerinas in the house? Bob Shea created The Ballet Cat series for ages 6-8. Your little dancers are sure to enjoy the books with their cute illustrations.

Though my girls are a bit on the older side at ages 9 and 11, we flipped through the books together and they adored all of the bright colorful illustrations. These are exactly the kind of books that we would have read together each night when they were younger -- funny and entertaining, with a great moral at the end.

And I assure that you little one will flip for the Ballet Cat plush! As a fan of all things pink, my 11-year-old took one look at this sweet little pink stuffed cat and immediately claimed her. It's easy to see why her soccer coach nicknamed her "Pink" when she was eight, and it's stuck ever since!

Here's a quick summary for both books:

The Totally Secret Secret
Ballet Cat and Sparkles the Pony are trying to decide what to play today. Nothing that Sparkles suggests--making crafts, playing checkers, and selling lemonade--goes well with the leaping, spinning, and twirling that Ballet Cat likes to do. When Sparkles's leaps, spins, and twirls seem halfhearted, Ballet Cat asks him what's wrong. Sparkles doesn't want to say. He has a secret that Ballet Cat won't want to hear. What Sparkles doesn't know is that Ballet Cat has a secret of her own, a totally secret secret. Once their secrets are shared, will their friendship end, or be stronger than ever?

Dance! Dance! Underpants!
Ballet Cat is getting her friend Butter Bear ready for her big ballet debut. "Leap, Butter Bear, leap!" Ballet Cat prompts. But Butter Bear would prefer to just point her toe. When Ballet Cat keeps pushing, Butter Bear gets hungry, then thirsty, then sleepy . . . The bottom line is that Butter Bear would rather do almost anything to avoid making a big leap. Why? Because her bottom is covered in silly underpants! This second entry in the Ballet Cat series will have beginning readers rolling on the floor with laughter.

I'm determined to get a jump on Christmas this year so that I'm not boxing and wrapping and stuffing at the last minute. Who's with me?!

I'm actually doing really well so far -- all I need to pick up are a few stocking stuffers. So when an email from Crazy8 landed in my inbox this morning sharing their 30% off everything sale, I figured it was worth a peek. I am so glad that I clicked through, because I picked up a slew of *cute* stocking stuffers for my girls at a total steal!

Get 18% Off Your First Crazy8 Order

First of all, if you're not already registered to receive Crazy 8 emails, I highly recommend you get signed up... You'll receive a promo code worth 18% off your first online order! Just look for the signup box at the bottom right-hand side of the homepage.

I used my promo code on top of their already awesome sale prices, and I picked up all of the items pictured above (times two!) for my girls:

  • Stud Bracelet 3-pack -- I got these cute 3-packs of bracelets in both turquoise and pink, each of my girls' fave colors. It looks like they're just down to the maroon color, but they have lots of really cute jewelry options!
  • Sparkle Ribbed Infinity Scarf, Hat & Fingerless Gloves -- What girl doesn't love a little sparkle?! And I know my tech-loving girls will appreciate the fingerless gloves so they can wear them and still play with their devices.
  • Ankle Socks 3-pack -- Although I know it's just the beginning, the sock-stealing is already growing old. Soon enough it will be sweaters and pants, etc., but in the meantime, I'm hoping that tucking a couple of extra packs of new socks in my girls' stockings will keep them away from my sock drawer!

Of course, Crazy 8 has lots of great stocking stuffers for boys, as well! I'm already set on stuff for my boys, but I'm seriously considering placing another order for this adorable Dino Hat for my dinosaur fanatic 7-year-old.

Win A $50 Crazy8 Gift Card!
