HearthSong - Review & Giveaway


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. If you have kids to buy gifts for, one place to get your shopping done is at HearthSong. HearthSong is a known and respected source for quality children's toys, games, and crafts. Until 12/31/09 you can receive free shipping sitewide and a $10 reward card on your order of $65 or more.

The site is easy to navigate. If you have a particular item, price, age range, or interest in mind you can click on the categories listed to take you where you'd like to go. I have six kids whose ages range from age 15 to age 7. I was able to quickly find something suitable for each of them without surfing the site forever. If you are on a budget and need to watch the wallet, HearthSong has an outlet of over 100 items that are on clearance for a savings of up to 65%.

If you'd like to add an extra touch to your gifts, HearthSong offers a line of personalized gift ideas such as this Lullaby and Goodnight Book.

This Pretend Tool Set is just one of the toys currently on sale in the outlet section.

I've mentioned before that my family enjoys playing games. Qwirkle is a game that I had never heard of before I was given the opportunity to review it. It is a game for 2-4 players and it reminded me somewhat of Dominoes and Uno in how it was played. Players draw six wooden tiles to start and see how many matches they can make with the designs. Qwirkle is an award winning game times two, as a winner of the Mensa Select and the Parent's Choice Gold.
There are a total of eight of us in my family and we all wanted to play it. Since it's a game for up to four people, we've had to take turns competing against each other. This game has been lots of fun to play and I like that it appeals to people of a wide age range. Qwirkle has been brought out of the closet lots of times since we've had it and has provided hours of entertainment.

Win It!
One person will win a Qwirkle game.
