The Great Toy Giveaway: Day 4 (Contest Closed)

Thanks to all that entered, the contest is now closed.

Congratulations to our winner:

Now that the kiddos have had a chance to open not one, but TWO advent calendar windows, I’m betting that the requests for TOYS are becoming more frequent. Yes?

In our continuing effort to make your life happy and your holiday budget a bit easier to manage, we bring you The Great Toy Giveaway!  Each weekday we’ll be giving away a popular children’s toy. Just leave a comment on the daily Toy post to enter…see? Easy.

Day 4 will make the little hero in your life one happy camper—check out the Playskool Adventure Heroes Fire Hero On-the-Go Pack.

With the Playskool Hero on the Go playsets little ones can play the adventure or become the hero with two ways to play.  In role play mode, kids strap on the backpack complete with flashing lights and realistic sounds to become a brave fire fighter with a role play fire hose!  With the simple press of a button, the pack opens to reveal a themed playset inside, complete with an action figure and vehicle ready for adventure.

To enter to win the the Playskool Adventure Heroes Fire Hero On-the-Go Pack, leave a comment telling me what part of the holidays you get most fired up about (in a good way). Get it? Fired up? Ha!

Good Luck!

    oops! I misinterpreted the question….I guess I get fired up in the wee hours of Christmas morning before anyone else awakes. Sometimes I get SO fired up that I actually wake up my kids to open up their presents already. LOL

  2. Lynnette Davis 12/07/2010 at 9:40 pm

    Christmas, of course! I think I get fired up more than the kids do.

  3. Becky 12/07/2010 at 3:43 pm

    The food and friends and family. 🙂

  4. Heatherdiane 12/06/2010 at 2:58 pm

    music and lights

  5. Michelle stack 12/06/2010 at 1:47 pm

    I love putting up the tree and hanging the stockings!

  6. Lani Wilkinson 12/06/2010 at 8:06 am

    I get most “fired up” with the giving spirit… I LOVE to give gifts, especially meaningful ones! I try really hard to either find something that would be special for the people I am giving gifts to or to make them something that is catered to what they like! This year I’m making advent calendars for my siblings, definitely has ended up being a big project. But, I try to make them curbed to their interests with a holiday twist!

    Going Christmas tree hunting… It always gets me pumped up!!


  8. Jenn D 12/06/2010 at 6:21 am

    Driving around to look at Christmas lights and all of the fun holiday events that go on around town

  9. AMY 12/05/2010 at 10:00 pm

    I get most fired up by Christmas music. I start listening to it in October.

  10. Nina C 12/05/2010 at 7:53 pm

    how magical it can be for me, making it magical for my son.

  11. Tina Mayo 12/05/2010 at 7:28 pm

    I think watching my babies get up and seeing the amazement that Santa came and brought them goodies!!!

  12. Mandy Jean 12/04/2010 at 8:57 pm

    When I’m putting the holiday decor away in boxes. Im totally serious!

  13. Amy G 12/04/2010 at 6:26 am

    We get totally fired up about gift wrapping. The kids really love wrapping, decorating cards, and curling ribbons. It’s a lot of fun!

  14. Jamie B 12/04/2010 at 6:25 am

    The excitement of waiting for the kids to open their presents christmas morning.

  15. Suzanne Bake 12/03/2010 at 9:34 pm

    I LOVE being able to spend time with my family!!

  16. Jessica 12/03/2010 at 6:30 pm

    Going over to my moms for her wonderful traditional breakfast that she has been making for years. We do not make any of the foods we eat that morning any other time of the year, so it makes it extra yummy.

  17. Jennifer | 12/03/2010 at 4:40 pm

    Having my entire extended family together; nothing better for me 🙂

  18. Erica Sonnier 12/03/2010 at 9:00 am

    December 20th!!! WOooT. That is my birthday and it kicks off Christmas. I like to celebrate 5 days in a row, ending on Christmas! On December 19th I’m giddy with excitement over the fact that we are about to embark on fun, games, good food, laughter, smiles and joy-filled conversation! It’s all about the warmth and love of family togetherness!

  19. Jen 12/03/2010 at 8:10 am

    I absolutely LOVE the holidays but I think my favorite part is planning out my gift list! Or maybe it’s the holiday music and lights! I can’t decide!

  20. Shannon O 12/03/2010 at 6:51 am

    That is so cute. My son would love it. He loves fire trucks. I love the lights and the music during the Christmas season. (And the cold weather is nice when we get it).

  21. Heidi Kingery 12/03/2010 at 5:55 am

    Getting to see my kids’ faces on Christmas morning! I absolutely love it!

  22. Yuki 12/02/2010 at 9:10 pm

    I’ve been fired up about getting the Christmas tree decorated but I decided to take it one step further this year (much to my husband’s dismay). Our tree is/was a pre-lit artificial tree and I decided to remove all the old lights and replace them with environmentally/electrical bill friendly LED lights. What I thought would be a one-night job is now heading into it’s second week. Only 1/3 left to go!

  23. icefairy 12/02/2010 at 9:02 pm

    Love New Year’s Eve. The countdown is so exciting. Plus, there are lots of parties to go to during holidays.

  24. trixx 12/02/2010 at 8:24 pm

    The holidays are the time when I get to spend time with my family & relatives so that’s my favorite part!

  25. Mandie Lewis 12/02/2010 at 6:59 pm

    It’s 6 a.m. Christmas morning, all the kids have jumped on our bed and we get slowly ready to go look at the Christmas tree.

  26. LeAnna B. 12/02/2010 at 6:23 pm

    I get most fired up when the radio stations start playing Christmas music! Love it!!

  27. shelli 12/02/2010 at 5:55 pm

    Great pun!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE decorating my house for Christmas…it really gets me fired up! I get fired up about others’ decor as well; love going on Holiday home tours.

  28. Amy W 12/02/2010 at 4:57 pm

    I just love turning on my Christmas tree and lights, playing games, in general having special family moments. We try to have memory making moments all the time, but I strive for even more of those during the holidays.

  29. DeeAnn 12/02/2010 at 4:21 pm

    My little boy would love this!

    I love seeing all the lights and how everyone is nicer!

  30. Karla Sceviour 12/02/2010 at 3:57 pm

    I get fired up about seeing my son open his presents and the excitement on his face! Also, the turkey dinner..;)

    Hahaha, I was looking at this post and my nearly 5-yr-old son walked by and saw the picture of the toy. What came out of his mouth? “MOM, that’s cool, can I have it?!!” My response: “Only if I win it!” Haha.

  32. Erica L. 12/02/2010 at 2:23 pm

    This year is a little different I can’t wait to meet my new baby due just a week before Christmas, it’s got me pretty fired up that she doesn’t want to come a little early!

  33. Marjorie 12/02/2010 at 2:07 pm

    Being with my kiddos and wonderful husband!

  34. Sara House 12/02/2010 at 1:50 pm

    Getting to see my son get excited about opening his gifts from Santa. Then going to my family for our extended family gathering.
