MyBlogSpark Giveaway: Crayola Holiday Gifts

Still looking for that perfect gift for the child in your life? Crayola is offering more than 30 ways to give the gift of imagination for under $30 this holiday season with a lineup of gifts to inspire wonder, adventure and dreams in toddlers to tweens. Crayola has created an on-line gift guide making it easy to select the perfect creative activity for the child on your list. It’s available at www.Crayola.com/gifts. You can search it by age, gender and type of product, like mess-free and washable products and activities that offer surprising experiences. Who wouldn’t be surprised to watch their artwork light up in the dark in multiple colors!

Thanks to Crayola and MyBlogSpark, my kids got to try out a few awesome Crayola products. The first thing we tried out was the Crayola Model Magic Presto Dots.
Crayola Model Magic Presto Dots received “Toy of the Year” honors from Good Housekeeping, Parenting and Parents magazines. The “magic” behind Presto Dots comes from Model Magic’s – a truly different modeling material that doesn’t crumble. It’s not clay, it’s not dough – it’s Crayola Model Magic. Kids can create 3-D, bumpy characters with the easy-to-use “Pop-Dot” tool that grabs just the right amount of Model Magic for building an original creature. A quick press and pop covers characters with presto dots. Pop away with different colored dots, or pop dots on top of dots to create original 3-D creatures that air-dry in 24 hours. $19.99, 5+
The kids had a lot of fun with this one. It was a little difficult for them to use the pop-dot tool and get the dot to stick, but I was able to help them. They loved being creative, using the tools or just their imagination, and were proud of their finished creation. I loved that it didn't crumble and make a huge mess like play-doh and that it came with a mat to lay down!

So proud!
This is mine. I couldn't resist making my own.


 Next Leanna tried the Crayola Color Wonder Sound Studio.
The Crayola Color Wonder Sound Studio makes coloring a magical mess-free adventure for little eyes and ears! Kids can add fun, action-packed sound effects like dinosaur roars, motor cycle engines, giggles and even the voices of Buzz Lightyear, Woody and the Disney Princesses to their coloring pages. Sounds play back when they color their pictures. Just choose a sound and add it anywhere on the coloring page to create one-of-a-kind coloring stories with surprising sound effects. Kids can also play back all the sounds they experienced while they were coloring. Sixty sounds can be matched to any image on any page for hours of colorful fun! $29.99, 3+
She really enjoyed all the fun sounds and noises. She loves to color and adding sound is a real bonus. I like that it's the Color Wonder markers that only color on Color Wonder paper. Another great thing is the markers fit into a holder on the backside. I would have liked to see a space designed to hold the sound cards too, but otherwise it's a great product.

While Leanna colored, the boys tried out the Glow Explosion Spin Magic.
Never before has paper been a surface for creating glowing drawings! Glow Explosion Spin Magic is a revolutionary activity toy that lets kids create multi-colored glow-in-the-dark art with markers that light up like glow sticks on paper. The spinning base lets kids create magical mobiles and whirling lanterns for a never-before-seen “glow show” that will wow the entire family when the lights go out. Colorful, glowing shapes like planets or hot air balloons appear as if they are spinning in mid-air. The base unit doubles as a lantern with five different scenes that create cool shadow-effects as they rotate around the radiant, glowing designs created on Glow Explosion paper. $19.99, 6+ 
This one was a lot of fun and very easy! The boys chose to do the space cut-out shapes mobile. The base was easy to assemble and they only had a little trouble getting one of the paper shapes on the clip holder. The shapes glowed great and it was cool to watch spinning around. I'm sure they will have fun with this one and the other designs that came with it.

We also received a box of Crayola crayons. This year, specially-marked Crayola crayon boxes (48, 64, 96, 120-ct. as well as the 150-ct. Crayon Tower) include a free code that provides 6-month unlimited access to the Story Studio custom coloring book maker. What a great value! Available at Crayola.com, Story Studio allows kids to transform themselves into a cartoon character from a digital photo or web cam image, customize their character with hats, sunglasses, costumes and other fun accessories and then select a theme to create a custom story book they can print and color. Story Studio was named “High Tech Toy of the Year” by the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio. $5-$15, 3+


You can try the Story Studio for 48 hours by using the Promo code PRY4DBJJ.
