Grateful Giveaways #1: The Peanuts Prize Package

by Tara Kuczykowski on April 25, 2011 · 1,068 comments


Happiness is ... starting off today's awesome giveaways with Snoopy and the Gang!! This one will be sure to put a smile on the face any Snoopy or Peanuts fan ... or anyone who has fond memories of the saying, "Good Grief Charlie Brown"!

The Peanuts comic strip by Charles Schulz that began in 1950 and lasted for 50 years, went way beyond the newspaper. Snoopy has become one of the most beloved comic strip characters, along with Charlie Brown and the whole gang of Peanuts characters. Holiday TV Specials such as A Charlie Brown Christmas and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown have become timeless classics, and must-see shows during holiday time, and they continue to delight each year.

Also- be sure to check out Peanuts.com ... a wonderful collection of everything from Vintage Snoopy to current Peanuts Gang happenings. This comic strip that has warmed the hearts of so many children and grown ups alike, continues to do so today.

What more can you say about The Peanuts? I grew up watching the Charlie Brown holiday specials every year growing up, and it's a tradition that I now get to share with my own kids. I love that they look forward to them as much as I do!

We watched the new Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown DVD last night as a family, and it was absolutely adorable. And the coffee table book is absolutely amazing. There are so many little surprised tucked in it -- my kids have spent hours paging through it.

Peanuts Worldwide is giving, one lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a prize package that includes The Peanuts Collection Coffee Table Book, a Hallmark Happiness is Hanging Out Together Figurine, a Hallmark Happiness is a Full Tummy Lunch Bag, Snoopy t-shirt and a Blue-Ray/DVD called Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown.
