Giveaway: Laser pegs light set & globe from HearthSong

This giveaway has ended and the winner will be announced soon!

Today is the first day of our annual Home for the Holidays week! Welcome to what will be a fun five days of giveaways, charity spotlights, and helpful holiday link round-ups from around the web.

I love HearthSong’s tagline–toys you’ll feel good about giving.

The company specializes in toys that encourage kids’ creativity and imagination–qualities desperately needed at this time of year–when we’re often bombarded with ads for tacky gizmos that seem enticing, but often don’t last very long.


HearthSong began in 1983, when founder Barbara Kane was struggling to find appropriate toys for her own children. I love her perspective:

“Earlier is not necessarily better. It’s important that children learn basic skills, but at the right developmental age. Most of all, children need time for creative, imaginative play. In fact, it is through play that children learn most readily.”

Illuminated Earth Globe

I plan to give this globe to my geography-buff son Elijah–he’s into all things world-related at the moment!

I wasn’t sure what an illuminated globe would be like, but the light inside makes it easy to notice features that often get missed–like details in relief and the boundaries of countries.

The base of the globe is made of thick plastic, and appears extremely sturdy. I think it will hold up well to the not-so-delicate usage of my typical seven-year-old boy.

Laser Pegs Light Set

My daughter Trishna loves everything related to electricity and light bulbs, and she is going to flip with joy upon opening this laser pegs light up building set on Christmas Day.

The set includes 72 pieces your child can use to build whatever his or her heart desires–with directions included to create a tractor, dune buggy, or a mini bug.

I had a good time experimenting with the laser pegs myself–amazing fun! After constructing, your child can use the enclosed battery pack (requires 3 AA batteries) and cord to light up their creation.

One Simple Homeschool reader will win this laser peg building set and an illuminated globe from HearthSong!
