Armadillo Dreams Giveaway

This weekend’s giveaway is from Armadillo Dreams!  Armadillo Dreams is the home based business of Dustin and Amanda Cowell, and I am so pleased to be sharing their beautiful toys here with you today.

Hi! I’m Dustin. Together with my wife Amanda we own and run our handmade wooden toy business called Armadillo Dreams. We operate out of our home, which is located in beautiful Redmond, Oregon. We have two children, Lucy and Lincoln. We love being able to be at home together as a family! You can learn more about our family and follow our adventures through our blog Wild Armadillos. You can also like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for daily specials, sales, news and giveaways.

We make toys for kids of all ages including baby toys, toddler toys, preschool toys and toys for older children. Our toys are Waldorf inspired and full of imagination! Everything in our shop is “made to order”, meaning we make toys after orders are placed. This allows our customers the opportunity to customize paint colors or add personalization such as names, dates or short messages. This way your toys are made special just for you and your children.

We’ve been selling our toys online since the end of 2010. Up until April we had been selling our toys exclusively through our Etsy shop. We are super excited to announce that we just opened our very own website – On our website you will find everything that is available through our Etsy shop. The sales from our website will benefit our family more directly and help our business to grow much further. At the same time we also started a customer service phone number with posted business hours. If you ever have questions about our toys, want to check status on an order, or just want to say hi, we are just a phone call away!

Armadillo Dreams is giving away a 3 Month Surprise Toy Subscription to one lucky Small Things reader.  They will ship worldwide and will even cover the shipping.

In addition,  you can use the code “ST52013” during checkout on the Armadillo Dreams Etsy shop or website to receive 15% off on your entire order! This coupon is good 5/4/2013 to 5/11/2013.

For your chance to win, simple leave a comment on this post.  Comments will close and a winner will be randomly selected on Monday, May 6.  The winner will be announced within this post.

Comments are closed.  The winner is Julie:  I love the idea of a surprise toy!

Thanks, Armadillo Dreams!
