Frecklebox

The first thing that caught my eye about this company is the name - I've always loved freckles, despite not really having many (or perhaps that's why I love them lol)...every time I see this company name and logo I can't help but smile! THEN I looked at their products - and I haven't stopped smiling since!

On a mission to educate and entertain, Scott and Mark conceived this here web-based business to offer truly unique, personalized gifts for children at affordable prices. Their entertaining selection of personalized items are designed to delight your children and friends (and trust me, they will!).

I love it all. I absolutely adore personalized items. I remember seeing a teddy bear at a mall once that had my name on the dress - my name was NEVER one of the ones pre-made, and even if it was it was never *my* spelling. It was a momentous occassion - I HAD to have that bear. So I got it, justifying myself by saying it was a christmas present (what's wrong with buying yourself a christmas present??). I still have it in fact - I just can't part with it. Considering I was about 18 when I bought the bear and knowing how excited I was to see my name, I think I have a pretty good understanding of how awesome it is for kids to see the same. I knew we had to review this company!
The most difficult part about this site was trying to decide what we wanted to review. Megan and I were each able to choose one item from their product list to review (incredibly generous!). Brooklyn was really excited about the Unicorn book and Hadley chose the Pigeons puzzle. How fun is that - both were so excited when they arrived! Brooklyn asks for her book regularly and often it turns into 4 or 5 times in a row. She loves seeing her name incorporated into the story and is always reading it to her friends when they come over. We even got to put a little *dedication* page in at the front. I wanted this book to be even more special to her, so it was a gift from her little brother, Jonah. Hadley has a blast putting her puzzle together and seeing her name spelled out at the bottom (in birds no less). It's so fun and a great way to encourage early literacy!

And now - we've recently been notified that Frecklebox has launched their *back to school* line. I'm in trouble.....with Brooklyn starting kindergarten, and really wanting to avoid the whole *paper bag* scenario (for waste reasons) I HAVE to have one of these personalized lunchboxes, among a few other items that are just calling my name (like the personalized placemats for example). I'm certain I'll be putting in an order shortly - I just can't get enough of their products. Awesome quality, fabulous prices, and personalized for each child! I love it! It's so easy to personalize the items online and it's even set up to give you a preview of what it will look like with your child's name on it (and you can see each page of the books in the preview!). It sure makes ordering online a little less daunting! In addition, it's soo difficult to find accessories for boys - what a great way to make sure the little men in our lives aren't left out.

So I'm guessing you'd like to see for yourself! Scott and Mark are offering one lucky winner their choice of personalized item (aren't they fabulous!!!). You pick whatever you want - how awesome is that!!!!

I soooo want to win!
This is confusing "For additional entries (please make each a separate comment):" with this "**for the record - if you choose one of the additional entry options, you need only comment once to be entered the amount of times stated. So don't worry about having to comment 5 separate times if you place an order - once is sufficient :)**"

Im not sure what to do, but ive 1) subscribed to the newsletter
2)Went to the site and my fave item is the custom book "thomas goes to the zoo"
3) commented :)
win win win!!

Wow! I really want to win this!!! I love the lunchbox although she won't be in school for a while yet, I am sure we would use it for all her little treasured keepsakes until then!

adam_joan@hotmail.com said...

You are right, after looking at their site, I just can't pick one item that I like the best! I love the growth charts(what a great idea), the puzzles and the story books! So cute!Love love love it all!

Hailey said...

Okay - for the record....each additional entry is to be a separate comment (ie. visit site, subscirbe to newsletter, blog, etc.). But some of these are worth more than one entry - just saying instead of commenting 5 times to get the 5 entries for placing an order for example, just comment one extra time and we'll put you in for 5.

yeah, kind of does sound confusing, doesn't it? Just didn't want anyone to not enter because they weren't wanting to put in the time to leave 5 separate comments saying exactly the same thing.

anyways...hope that clears it up a little bit...lol

I would choose the lunchbox

Candi said...

I agree with your comment about having your name personalized on something. My name was never one of the default names or if it was it was spelled wrong too! Any time I saw it, I had to purchase that item as well!

I like the notebooks, journals, folders, lunchboxes, and stickers. I love that they have so many choices on the designs. It would be perfect for my range of kids' personalities. My oldest would love a sports one, my 2nd would love the skateboard or camo one, my 3rd is a girlie girl so should would love anything pink & girly! We homeschool so getting some of these items may make it more fun!
