HearthSong: $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner - michtuck #355!

HearthSong always amazes me with their amazing products for kids. Their slogan says it all - Toys you can feel good about giving. I couldn't agree more!


I received two very cool toys for kids. The first is their Magnet Penny Magic Kit. My son could not stop playing with this when it arrived and he still can't put it down.

Build a pyramid of coins that floats in the air; create sculptures of pennies connected edge to edge (impossible!); make a penny spin so fast you can barely see it!

How? With this kit's two super-strong magnets, 24 newly minted authentic British coins (and US penny), and kids' curiosity.

The 54-page instruction booklet includes 32 astounding feats, plus amazing info about magnetism. Sponsored by the Institute of Physics, the Royal Institution, London. Carrying case included.

For ages 8 to adult.


We've all had our fair share of time with this magical toy. It's been a great conversation piece in our home during the holidays. Everyone loves it!

I also received the beautiful Jellyfish Aquarium. My daughter loves this! It's the perfect size to place on a desk. She has it in her room and sometimes uses it as a nightlight. This is also another product from HearthSong that is a real attention grabber!

You don't need to visit a marine exhibit to see the graceful movement of a jellyfish. Set up this mini-aquarium at home and watch as your faux jellyfish mimic the movement of the real things.

Simply add water and a dab of dish detergent to help them glide. Includes 3 delicate faux jellyfish that dance up, down, and around, while ever-changing colored LED lights create a wonderful glow.

Makes a soothing night-light or desk accessory. Designed with an on/off switch and 4-hour auto button. Requires 2 AA batteries (not included).

Recommended for ages 8 and up, but my daughter is 6 and she is old enough to take care of it. The aquarium measures approximately 10"L x 7 1/2"W x 2 1/2"H. Set up was a breeze and we had it up and moving in no time!

One lucky reader will receive a $50 Gift Certificate thanks to HearthSong!
