Edge History!

I am just tickled to say that you are a part of Edge history, Internets!

Last week I was contacted by Miss Anne of Paknaks fame and was offered the chance to do a give away. Me? A give away?? I immediately emailed her back and told her I would be thrilled to share the love with my people.

Miss Anne went on to say that she would do TWO sets of five for you guys! How cool is that? Two winners? Who each get to pick out five a piece? Get out of here!

You've seen The Boy's favorite PakNak in a previous post. So many different things can be done with these cuties.

Please go check out the PakNak Gallery and see what you can do! Headbands, back packs, lunch bags, bicycle helmets, and on and on. I have the dolphins I'm saving for just the perfect thing for my Submariner hubby.

How can you score your very own set of PakNaks, you ask? Well, let me tell you how! (I'm feeling like an infomercial right about now. I knew that insomnia would pay off one day!)

Take a stroll on over to the PakNak site and pick out five of your favorite ones. I know, it's hard. I already see a couple more that are new that I might just have to have. I have the vision of doing Makenna a headband or two or three. Miss Anne has also informed me that some PakNaks are made from recycled plastic. I'm all about recycling. Drives my family nuts how I have things sorted into their proper bins.

Pick out five of your favorites and leave a comment here on this post listing your favorite five. I'm going to run this giveaway until Thursday so the winners will know before the weekend to expect a package in the mail of their very own! I'll have an unbiased party (prolly The Man) pull two names on Thursday evening. I'll be contacting you to let you know you've won and so will Miss Anne. Please make sure I have a way to contact you-preferably by blog and/or email.

What have you got to lose? All you lurkers? If you know a child or you are a child at heart? Go for it! Pick your five and comment!

I am very excited and thrilled to be doing this and hope you enjoy playing along. Everyone who knows me personally will agree this particular one fits me perfectly! I think everyone representing the U.S.A. overseas right now should have one of these. Miss Anne's daughter has done a cute little Tube demo'ing the coolness.

Now, go visit PakNaks and enjoy yourself. Tell your friends to come visit The Edge and give it a shot. Be a part of Edge history!

Unless I come back and state otherwise, this is open for United States and Canada addresses.

P.S. I did not tell any of my friends about this so as to keep it all a fair playing ground. That, and the fact that Carla held my birthday party plans a secret for MONTHS makes it all the sweeter. It was a good weekend.

Visual reminder of how The Boy's turned out. All the kids at 4K think it's cool. He was all over that green frog when I opened the envelope. If it's green? It's his. The oldest was out the door this morning before I could get a picture of her peace sign on her backpack. I'll have to make sure I get one for you!

Alex surfed around on the paknak land game and he said it looked like it would be a good game for four year olds. The colors were nice for little girls and little boys.

So just to let you know if you have little ones, go check out the game!
