Tickly Octopus Review and Giveaway

*CLOSED*
WINNER #10 Tracy66 CONGRATULATIONS!


Lately Penelope has been getting more into doing crafts. She loves creating things with her little hands. I have been trying to find things that she can do with little help from me and that she will enjoy. When I heard about Tickly Octopus I knew it would be something she would love. The creator of Tickly Octopus was inspired by a playdate in 2006. After seeing the creative crafts her friend was making with her daughters she came up with the idea of a T-shirt design kit that children could have fun with and put their imagination into. Creating a one of a kind T-shirt that they could wear and show off to the world. This do-it-yourself T-shirt design kit includes handmade peel and stick appliqués of animals and shapes, letters and adornments along with an organic T-shirt canvas. Each appliqué is made with fade resistant felt with a peel and stick adhesive backing. And because each appliqué is handmade they will have a slightly different look adding to the uniqueness of your little ones creation.

Why organic? From the Tickly Octopus website:
Each T-shirt is made from one hundred percent organic cotton saves one-third of a pound of synthetic fertilizers and farm chemicals. Cotton is one of the most intensively sprayed field crops in the world. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that more than 53 million pounds of pesticides and 1.6 billion pounds of synthetic fertilizers were applied to cotton fields in 1996. Organic cotton is good for you; grown and processed without toxic chemicals; minimized damage to soil, water and air. Choosing sustainable children’s clothing is everyday action one person can do to save planet. One choice at a time.
This T-shirt design kit is the perfect craft for toddlers and young kids, it is also very easy. You just peel off the back to reveal the adhesive and place it anywhere you wish on your shirt. Press down firmly and then throw in the dryer for 15 minutes to seal your design. Penelope had so much fun with this!

She also couldn't wait to put on her new shirt. Check out her finished product.
