Giveaway: Fairy House & Solar Construction Kits from Imagine Childhood

This giveaway has now ended. Thanks for entering!

Today is the final day of our Home for the Holidays week! I hope you’ve enjoyed it and that you’ve gleaned a few gift ideas for the upcoming holiday season as well!

Since this is the third year in a row that I’ve highlighted the online store Imagine Childhood, I don’t have to tell you that I’m a fan.

I have reviewed, and purchased, items for birthdays and holidays there for a quite a while now, and have been incredibly pleased with the quality of the toys–as well as the heart behind them.


Sarah from Imagine Childhood has created the most beautiful virtual holiday catalog, showcasing many of the items in their shop–it’s an excellent way to get an overview of the toys and other creative goodness they offer to customers.

Last year I bought many of my kids’ stocking stuffers here–and I appreciated that they made it easy for me by putting the smaller sized gifts together for easy browsing.

Continue reading to find out more about the two toys being offered to a lucky winner today!

Fairy House Kit

My nine-year-old daughter is into all things dollhouse-related at the moment. Remember the wooden treehouse I reviewed two years ago? That toy has been played with hard, on an almost daily basis, and is still going strong.

Trishna has turned the entire floor of her bedroom into a “neighborhood,” confiscating many cardboard boxes as houses for her dolls. She will be thrilled to add this fairy house to the neighborhood–and to create it herself!

The kit has everything you need to make a multilevel fairy house like the one you see above–with tons of items to make furniture and decorate with afterwords: birch bark, moss, driftwood, wire, seashells, stones, pine cones, bark, feathers, twine, silk flowers, and small branch sections. AND–your own glue gun! (I’m thinking the glue gun may be Trishna’s favorite part.)

Imagine Childhood also keeps in stock a wide variety of sweet fairies you can purchase to keep that house full of magical residents once it’s been constructed.

European Solar Construction Set

Eight-year-old Jonathan has really gotten into building kits lately, so this solar construction kit will be under the tree for him this year.

An awesome introduction to solar power, the kit contains pieces to make an airplane or helicopter. It includes over 188 parts and instructions to create the models–my husband’s head swooned when he saw them, but I think Jonathan is up for it!

The company specifies this as a kit for ages eight and up, and looking at all the small parts, I would agree. Your older kids will love it!

Once the model is built, you place it under direct sunlight and watch it power up! (No, it doesn’t fly, but the rotors spin.) Plenty of environmentally friendly play–and no batteries required!

  8. My son (and husband) would love the solar construction set. My daughter is just getting into making things, so this would be a great project for us.

  10. My kids would love these toys! They love to use their imagination and create things.

  11. I love Imagine Childhood! I have to get my list out for Christmas…

  12. theresesophia says:

    I would love for my daughter to have these because she is super creative and I know these would really tap into her love for creativity!

  13. My kids love to make cozy little houses – and love outdoors, so the fairy house kit looks perfect! I’m sure as my boys get a little bigger (they are 3 and 5 now), the solar building kit would be a hit!

  14. My girls would love to build fairy houses because they are not sure that fairies are real or not and they are very artistic. My boys would love the solar building kit because they love building and are love learning about how things work. Again thanks for some great ideas.

  15. Daniel Bourque says:

    A construction kit for Noah that isn’t LEGO! Plus science to boot!

  16. These would be such a perfect fit for our family. I’ve looked at this company for years, but haven’t taken the plunge to buy anything yet..would love to win.

  17. My children would love these things because we are often outside and they are fascinated by all the little things God has made. i think these would broaden that.

  18. My children would love the fairy house to keep the magic of imagination alive and the plane to show the real magic of the sun!

  19. I have 3 little girls, all deep in the throes of fairy fascination. I love the richer, deeper fairy stories (like the books written and illustrated by Cicely Mary Barker), and this follows in that more natural, authentic tradition. It would be an absolute thrill to add this to our collection.

  20. Our 5yo daughter is an artist at heart and would love to build the fairy house – she has an awesome imagination, and it would be great for her to tell us her fairy stories! Our 4yo son has always been into how things work, and is quite the handyman – the solar construction kit would be a wonderful project for my hubby and I to do with him!

  22. My 9yr old son would love the solar building set because he loves building sets that he can do a couple of the instructions models and then use his own imagination to come up with is own plus he’s been really into electricity with projects lately so it’d be perfect! And my 2 girls would love the fairy house set because of the creative possibilities and definitely because of the glue gun, too!

  28. I have been intended to do fairy houses with my girls! This would be perfect. And my boys would love the other set. Neat!
