I met up with Gabriel of Smart Alley a couple of months ago. Smart Alley specialises in quality educational products for children from pre-school to primary school levels.
The people that own Smart Alley are experienced folks in this industry. They have been offering children's products and working with schools and educational institutions for many years. I was pretty impressed by what was shared with me. I recently ordered a bunch of stuff for Bubbles and as gifts, and made good use of their Free Delivery service for orders above S$100 (how great is that!!). They also do free gift-wrapping!
Today, I am really excited to be sharing with you about one of Smart Alley's (many!) products and am offering one up as a giveaway!
I bought this Sticker Activity Tote for Bubbles a while back, given that she loves playing with stickers. Needless to say, it has been a great hit not only with her, but also with us, her parents! The product description says: Great on-the-go package lets kids and families take this item in the car, on a plane, into a restaurant, or anywhere you might want an engaging activity that's easy to start and easy to clean up. I can vouch for this as our tote went with us all the way to Krabi, KL and back and it was very well used :)
The tote includes a bunch of reuseable cling stickers that you can stick onto a choice of 2 fold-out scenes. We had plenty of fun imagining stories as we worked on the stickers together. I found it a very good product to have conversations with Bubbles about what people in the scene are doing, where things should go, what is happening etc. Great for object recognition and storytelling! When Bubbles plays on her own, she is always intent to transfer ALL the stickers from their backings onto a scene. The best part is, everything comes off easily (even when one sticker is stuck on another, which happens often with us!). That, plus that fact that the stickers do not stick on anything else!
This is one product that will last for years as an older child would be able to manipulate the stickers to his/her own imagined scenarios. I also really liked that the colours of the stickers do not 'bleed'. We own some other reuseable cling stickers where the colours come off after a few rounds of man/toddler-handling.
Smart Alley carries a range of Creative Sticker Kits and have offered up one gorgeous Fun-in-the-Sun Activity Tote to one of A Dollop Of Me's readers! They also surprised me by generously agreeing to send this prize to a winner anywhere in the world! So, if you know of a kid between the ages of 1-plus to 6, you might want to win one for him/her!
To enter this draw, leave a comment sharing who you would like this Sticker Tote for.
The draw will end on Sunday 5 June 12 noon (Singapore time, UTC/GMT +8 hours).
Do help spread the word! =)
