ZhuZhu Pets Giveaway-CLOSED

OMG!! We are so lucky to be able to do a product review on these toys and they are even letting us host a giveaway!!!

Now, if you know me at all you know that I am looking for toys that are fun for my son who has cerebral palsy but also for "typical" kids to be able to play with too. I like to find ones that BOTH kids can play together with. Not just "his toys" and "you toys" type of play. These little guys are a delight for everyone! Dad even got a big kick out of them too!


These things are so way cool. Does your child want a pet and you just don’t feel like taking that responsibility on? THIS is the pet to get, and what's nice is you can’t kill it!!

One good deed idea- even if you personally don’t have a child that would like this, enter anyways and if you win give it to a child that has a birthday coming up or wait until Christmas (soon to be right around the corner) and donate it to an organization for needy kids!

Karma – what goes around comes around!


This giveaway is for one hamster and the slide/ramp.

How to Enter (its very simple)

Paint Your Appliance Pink!

I found out about this really cool thing and thought I'd share it with everyone.
(But note: I AM GOING TO WIN!)

So here is a great way to help support Breast Cancer, so I think you should all do it. My mother passed away a little over a year ago after fighting breast cancer for 20+ years. Last year I walked in the 3 Day Breast Cancer walk. This year two sisters, 1 brother and a sister in law and 1 niece are walking. They have 5 weeks left to go and a ton more money to raise. If you'd like to help them out, you can click here. I am sure they would appreciate it and so would I!

For those of you who are struggling along like the rest of us, here is an easy way to donate towards Breast Cancer and possibly win something cool! (but I already told you I'm going to win!)

This is an email I received on just how how you can do that!

"My name is Jane Moore and I work on behalf of, an online appliance parts retailer. I wanted to let you know about a special sweepstake we’re having that you and your readers of Better than normal may be interested in.

PartSelect is hosting a Paint Your Appliance Pink Sweeps to help raise awareness and $10,000 for Breast Cancer Research. The sweepstake runs from July 1, 2009 – September 30, 2009.

It’s easy to enter! Contestants simply have to paint a pink ribbon on any major household appliance and send us a photo of the artwork. For each entry received, PartSelect will donate $25.00 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, up to a maximum of $10,000.

What’s in it for you?

Everyone who sends in a photo will be entered to win 1 of 3 Pink Prize Packages valued at $369.97, which includes a Pink KitchenAid Stand Mixer, Pink Mixer Cover and much more.

If you or your readers would like to help us reach our donation goal of $10,000, just check out our Paint Your Appliance Pink page for more sweeps details and enter for your chance to win!"

What is cool, you can enter more than once if you paint a ribbon on a different appliance! So up to 5 times. Make sure you check out the rules!

**Each Pink Prize Package consists of a Pink KitchenAid® Stand Mixer, Pink Stand Mixer cover, Pink Silicone Mixer Spatula, Pink Silicone Heart Pan, Pink Measuring Cups and Spoons Set, and Cook for the Cure® Apron.

OH My GOSH I would be in heaven if I win this!!
