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!
