All things baby...and more

Bethany Balsis and The Mums have something in common...we love all things BABY! Because of her passion, Bethany started The Polkadot Platypus, your one-stop maternity, baby and kids shop. Bethany strives to choose the most unique and reasonably-priced products for her shop, from mama jewelry to Mai Tei Carriers to playtime items.



One item in particular that we fell in love with from her shop is this Bella Tunno Play Smock in the "Hot Stuff" style. If your toddler is as energetic and creative as mine, this is a must-have. I have been searching for a smock like this for the majority of the summer. Something waterproof and big enough to cover her entire front-side, yet not constricting. The Bella Tunno Play Smock is just that. The fact that it is super fashionable is a plus too. :)

The Polkadot Platypus has such a large variety of maternity, kids and baby items to pick from, it's hard to tear yourself away to finish that tuna melt you were just in the middle of making (seriously).

We have something special to offer one lucky MTW reader - a $25 gift certificate to The Polkadot Platypus' eBoutique! I went ahead and did a little "pre" shopping for you. Take a look at just SOME of the unique gifts that you can purchase from the shop, all for UNDER $25! Feel free to click on the image to be taken right over there (you don't even have to drive!) to start making your "if I win, I want THIS" list. Don't worry, we'll be waiting right here for you to get back.



Here's what you need to do to enter, leave us a comment on THIS post and tell us if you've ever seen a platypus. Please leave your contact information (i.e. email address). Please don't forget to leave this, as we have had to count out a lot of people in the past because they didn't leave us a means of getting in touch. That's how we do business here and we'd really like you to be a part of these fun giveaways! Here's a tip for you, if you type in your email address in this format: you [at] yourdomain.com, you won't get spammed by those not-so-friendly robots. Now, on with the show shopping!

This giveaway will end Sunday, August 26 at 10PM. Good luck!

Too many great items to choose from. One that is genious! is the dwink box holder with handles. No more squeezing the juice out just trying to hold the box. I've never seen a platypus and if I had I'm sure it wouldn't be nearly so cute as that shop! beccalynn613[at]yahoo.com

The platypus, I have heard,
has a duck-bill like a bird.
They have dense, dark fur
And sometimes live in the water.

The platypus lays little eggs
And has a rather strange look.
They spray poison so I think
I’d rather see them in a book!

(But I'd like to win the gift card!) :)

Laura said...

There isn't anything on this site that I DON'T want! It's also good to keep in mind for the next one, since the maternity clothes are also SO cute! Don't you hate when you see a REALLY cute maternity shirt and say to yourself, "Where was that when I was pregnant?! Aww!"

I think I have seen a platypus at the zoo. Maybe, I'm not exactly sure. Seems that as many zoos as I have been to, I would have to have seen one.

I love the play smock also. My niece loves aprons and we don't have one in her size. This would be great.

Do you still need to leave an email address in the comment section if you are signed in to blogger?
