Giveaway: $100 Gift Certificate from Bella Luna Toys

Welcome to Simple Living Media’s Home for the Holidays! We’ve got 25 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win a great gift, just in time for the holidays.

This giveaway is now closed.  Thank you!

Today I’m giving away a $100 Gift Certificate to Bella Luna Toys!

Owned by experienced Waldorf teacher and author, Sarah Baldwin, Bella Luna Toys carries “Waldorf toys, wooden toys, and natural toys to nourish the senses and inspire the imagination.”

If you were to visit my house, you’d find that many of the toys and art supplies we love and use on a daily basis are items that Bella Luna carries.  I can happily recommend shopping there because I know first-hand about the quality products and outstanding service Bella Luna provides, being a happy customer myself for some time now.

Learn more about Bella Luna Toys and how to win the gift certificate.

A few of our favorites and some items from our Wish List:

  • Wooden Rainbow Tunnel ::: this stacker is my “go to” child’s birthday party gift and a favorite at our house
  • Nesting Bowls ::: another favorite at our house, our set has lasted for years.  I love wooden stackers because of the way they feel (much nicer than plastic) and also because you can discern the variation of the weight with each size, bringing in another dimension of sensory experience into play.
  • Crayons ::: we really enjoy our beeswax crayons.  Sarah carries the 8 and the 16 count tins of the block crayons, the stick crayons, as well as the book on Coloring With Block Crayons. (If you’ve ever wanted to know the techniques behind those beautiful Waldorf drawings, this is a book you’ll want to pick up)
  • Heavy Baby Waldorf Doll ::: a beautiful new doll, at over 4lbs, these dolls are designed to have the weight of a real baby and a calming effect when held.  They are available in a variety of skin and color combination and are an item on our wish list.
