Weekend Giveaway: Sparkle Stories

Today’s weekend giveaway is for one of our family’s favorites: Sparkle Stories!

If you’re looking for a unique gift for the kids in your life, may I suggest Sparkle Stories, original tales told by an engaging story teller? The tales are entertaining and fun and a real joy to listen to.

This giveaway is now closed.

A subscription make a unique gift that doesn’t take up any room in the toy box, kids can share, and will give joy week after week.

My children ages 3 (almost 4), 5, and 10 are big fans of the Martin and Sylvia stories.  With six subscription series options to choose from, many are sure to delight your child, as well.

From the Sparkle Stories website:

Sparkle is an online resource for high-quality audio stories for children and families. Each week Sparkle Stories delivers delightful audio stories to subscribers around the world. We offer five original Story Series, plus a sixth Series with classic stories, songs and games, all designed to entertain and inspire the whole family.”

Two Simple Kids winners will receive a 3-month subscription to Sparkle Stories – the winners can choose any three stories that they’d like to hear.  (So that’s 3 months of subscription to 3 stories of choice).
