Spread the Word - FLIPZLES Halloween Giveaway


THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW OVER --
A GREAT BIG THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED!


I absolutely love this time of year and can't wait for the costumes and the treats! So I want to give a special treat to one of you.

Right now one of my major focuses is letting the world know about my new product. 
People who don't know FLIPZLES exist can't know how cool they are.  I want people to see and hear about my new product so that they know there are toymakers out there who care about creating toys that stimulate both sides of children's brains and don't need all the flashing lights and electronic features. 

As a small company based out of my garage word of mouth is a wonderful starting point to let people know about FLIPZLES. www.flipzles.com

As you can tell from my puzzles -- I love toys -- and besides painting puzzle designs for my FLIPZLES I also have a love for painting Nesting Dolls.  I currently am not selling any of my nesting dolls or taking orders since I am focusing on my puzzles but---
I am giving away this Haunted House nesting doll that I painted  along with a FLIPZLE to the winner of of this Spread the Word Giveaway.






How to Enter:
Simply comment on this post and include how you helped spread the word about FLIPZLES.  A few options might be to send out and email to friends about FLIPZLES, share the link to the FLIPZLES website (www.flipzles.com) or blog, encourage others to enter the contest. Be creative and SHARE AWAY!  Just make sure to list all the different ways you helped spread the word in your comment.

Each method of sharing you list will get you one entry in the giveaway. 
(Added later - so if you missed this no worries -- Please number your methods to make it easier for me to award you your entries.  Thanks!)
5 bonus entries will be given to anyone who also purchases FLIPZLES during the duration of the contest.

Entries will be accepted until midnight of October 23rd.
Entries will be numbered and the winners will be chosen at random through random.org

First prize is the Haunted Hous Nesting Doll pictured above along with a FLIPZLE of the winner's choice.
Second prize is a FLIPZLE of the winner's choice. 

Thanks for helping me tell the world about my puzzles! and Good Luck!

  1. So far I've commented on my facebook about how excited I am to be getting the castle flipzle for my son's birthday (buying it on Thursday!) and have already had a few friends ask questions and say how they are interested in them. I've also talked about them on the phone to a few people :) and told the people at two stores you mentioned selling your flipzles to about how awesome they are and that they are way better than melissa and doug.

  31. I actually told my mother-in-law about the FLIPZLES website because she works with a lot of physical therapists and occupational therapist for Kaiser Permanente. Wooden puzzles help in these positions because of how they help a child's hand/eye coordination as well as their fine motor skills. Puzzles also help them with problem solving skills and by having them in fun shapes, it is a game to them.

  37. The pirate ship has been a huge hit at my house. Not only do the kids love it, but every time my four nieces come over it is the first thing that they go for. When my mom was visiting she noted that the fights over the wii were not as intense as everyone was playing with the pirate ship. I am giving them as Christmas presents to all the kids this year.

    I put it on facebook- you are so talented! What unique puzzles!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I've never seen these before until Jenny Johnson (above :) posted them on FB. Are you looking to sell in brick-and-mortar stores? There is an amazing toy store in Arvada, CO called Jake's Toy Box (they are also on FB) that specializes in creative, thinking toys and this might be a good fit. I'm friends with the owners and often give feedback on their stock. You could either contact them directly or I can bring them a flyer, show them your website, or whatever else you prefer. As they are a family-owned/operated business, they also love supporting other small businesses. :)
