Giveaway- Sophie the Giraffe, Cuskiboo and Cuski Sunny! (THREE WINNERS)

 CLOSED
Winner #1 for Sophie Giraffe- #101 Lori
Winner #2 for Cuski Sunny- #43 TJ & Any
Winner #3 for Cuskiboo-#143 SCMOMOF2BOYS
 
Perhaps the hottest trend in baby toys and teethers is Sophie the Giraffe! My own 3-month old baby has a Sophie and she adores Sophie. Her older siblings and cousins have been mesmerized by the big brown eyes of this beloved toy as well! Sophie has really been the toy that my baby has been able to grasp and pull to her mouth first, before all of her other toys. She loves Sophie's face and lights up with a huge grin whenever she sees her!
 



You can watch a video of Sophie on the front page at Calisson Inc to hear about all the wonderful benefits this toy offers your baby if you haven't already heard all the buzz!

I am not familiar with Cuskiboo or Cuski Sunny but from the website alone I know this would make a wonderful and safe lovey for a baby or young child! I am interested in purchasing one for my baby in the near future as well because our sweet baby sleeps in bed with us and this may one day help her transition to her own crib. Here is what the website says about the Cuski products:

The sense of smell is important to infants and help them to feel secure and loved.
Cuski absorbs familiar scents that reassure your baby. To help your child to bond with Cuski, mummy or daddy sleeps with it on the first night to transfer their comforting scents to its super-soft material.



WIN IT:  Helene from Calisson Inc has generously offered a Sophie Giraffe, a Cuskiboo and a Cuski Sunny to giveaway; one item per winner! That means THREE winners will be chosen! The first name chosen will have first choice, second name chosen will have second choice and third name chosen will have the remaining prize!

  20. It's a good thing I checked out the FAQ's because I would have probably boiled the toy in water to sterilize. According to the FAQ's, it messes up the squeaker, so only use a damp cloth with some soapy water :)
