Poloppo: T-me DYO T-shirt Kit Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ trixpixel!

Kids love to draw, paint, sculpt...anything they can get their hands on that has to do with art is a good thing! Poloppo offers one really cool product that all you moms will LOVE!

The art of a child presents the view and voice of a human being fresh in the world. Untrammeled by the responsibility and daily stress of adult life, children are free to view the world through a clear lens -- a lens that sees life with deep insight, joy and freedom. Their artwork reflects this strong sense of exploration, imagination, delight, and challenge.

If you like Poloppo's wearable art by children, you'll love our new wearable art - made by your own kids!

You asked us, and we listened. We've had so many parents ask, "How can we get our own children's artwork onto a great t-shirt?" We decided to make it easy for you.

T-me Design-Your-Own is a do-it-yourself kit that includes everything your child needs to design his or her own wearable artwork. She can draw a picture using the markers and papers in the kit, choose her favorite t-shirt style from the enclosed catalog, and mail the drawing to us in the pre-paid return envelope. In 10 days, she'll receive her very own wearable art.Kids can get creative straight away, or they can send in something they've already drawn.

Kids can get their artwork printed on American Apparel t-shirts for themselves, friends, siblings, and even Mom and Dad. Look for more styles in '09.

The kit's unique t-shirt-shaped packaging converts into an easel-style picture frame so kids can easily display their favorite artwork.

T-me is a great holiday gift for children of any age. It even comes with a gift tag that says, "With many best wishes from ...", so you can personalize it before it gets to your favorite young artist.

The T-me kit contains 10 mini-markers, square paper, a catalog of t-shirts and a pre-paid return envelope so kids can send in their artwork and get it printed on a t-shirt of their choice - for themselves, friends, siblings, and even mom and dad.

Here is more about this company from their website:

Our mission at Poloppo is to encourage creativity in children, to help artistically talented kids achieve their dreams, and thereby amplify the voice of the world's children. Through this process we hope to bring 'grown-ups' to a heightened awareness of their global stewardship. Poloppo searches for and licenses kids' art from around the world and then designs high-quality clothing for babies, kids and grown-ups to best display this art. The child artists receive direct royalties on their work used on our products. Additionally, a portion of Poloppo revenues is distributed for art education support and programs for talented, under-privileged kids around the world.

About Poloppo, the place: pa-LOP-po (noun) - A magical place, created and existing in the minds of all children. It is a safe place to explore, create and invent with unrestrained imagination for the future world that children will inherit and inhabit. The word Poloppo is without pre-existing meaning. Nor is it an acronym. It simply refers to a place of inspiration, vision and hope shared by children all over the world.

I absolutely LOVE what this company is all about and hope you will too!

  31. "We put our heads together and thought of a few more ways you can reuse you T-me kit:

    - Add a binder clip or two, and you have a portfolio to carry your drawings in
    - Put it on the floor upside-down as a hurdle to jump over
    - Fold the t-shirt arms halfway in and staple them to each other to make a funny hat
    - Open it all the way up to make butterfly wings
    - Glue on sequins or add jewel stickers to make a handbag"
