I would love this for my little girl that is set to be born any day now!

My most memorable gift is a tie: the Barbie dream house was fantastic (my two sisters and I eventually had a whole Barbie village), but so was my first two-wheeler. Man childhood is fun:)

Jourdan said...

wow. What an adorable giveaway.

My favorite gift as a child had to be a pet iguana. My parents hid the aquarium behind the tree and we had to guess...very fun. But my little brother thought it had too "dry" skin, and slathered it with lotion. Unfortunately, it turned black, shriveled up and died soon after.

And that is only mild when it comes to our childhood pet stories. I'm sure we all have 'em.

--r said...

that would make a great replacement for the wooden letter "o" that our boy thinks is a teether!
i still remember opening my "my little pony" stable from santa. my ponies were stylin' that year :)

Hands down, my favorite Christmas gift was the Crayola Caddy I got when I was 6. Oh, how I loved those rows of markers, paints and crayons!

Bea said...

My teething daughter would love to sink her gums in this!!

My favorite Christmas toy is... well.. I'll confess-- a gameboy. We never had a full on Nintendo, but the year we got a Gameboy I felt "legit." I played Mario Brothers for hours and hours.

My most memorable Christmas gift as a child was a stuffed clown doll my parents gave to me. It still makes me smile!

ellen said...

The Madame Alexander baby doll "Victoria" when I was 8.

swell.life said...

One year my grandma gave me a mini puppet stage with about a dozen felt finger puppets. Hours of fun!

lacey said...

my memorable gift is the "Real Baby" that I found hiding behind the toliet paper! my mom is still nmad that I found it...25 years later!

H Yoho said...

the handmade barbie house my parents constructed...complete with real carpet, curtains, and linoleum kitchen floors.

Hil said...

So cute! Most memorable gift... hmmm... it would have to be my very first walkman. My parents would let me borrow their cassette tapes, and my favorite happened to be The Body Guard soundtrack. I would go around the house belting out Whitney Houston like there was no tomorrow.

Crystal said...

My first Cabbage Patch doll. Me and my four sisters each got one {nevermind that my oldest sister was a teenager}. We have a polaroid of us all sitting on the couch, from oldest to youngest {me}, holding our dolls.

Katie said...

precious. I have been wanting to find some great wooden teethers for my babe.

My most memorable gift as a child was magical. I went to bed completely broken-hearted because there was absolutely zero snow on the ground and no chance of it snowing overnight.

Meg said...

a play grocery store and register.

Genevieve said...

wow- my daughter would be so happy :) i remember so many little random gifts as a kid... for some reason the one that just keeps coming to me lately (probably cause i'm stressing about stockings for my family!) but is when i got leggings when i was little. i was so excited to have my own pair of the stirrup leggins and felt so grown up wearing them :)

hannah said...

santa brought my sister and i porcelain dolls for 3 years in a row. we adored them! i still remember how delicate and beautiful i thought they were. i received my first one when i was 5 and was so gentle and careful with it.

Brenna said...

My pink Barbie convertible, of course!

Melissa said...

My most memorable gift as a child? rollerblades. I was in 6th grade and was dying for a pair!

Diana said...

Ooh, lovely! My expecting sister definitely needs one of those.

My favorite Christmas present was my first Cabbage Patch Doll, Frances Johanna...hands down! What can I say...I was a child of the 80s for sure! :o)

the dibers said...

ooohhhh i love these cute cute teethers!
my most memorable gift was a barbie house from an aunt (my mom wasn't a huge fan of barbie stuff)
i loved it but totally get why my mom didn't buy that kind of stuff for us

carrie said...

oswald peter. my cabbage patch doll. i was sad at first because my sister and i found 2 dolls hidden before christmas. one girl and one boy. i was disappointed i got the boy. but i learned to love him.

schwarkmom said...

A yellow bike with a big white banana seat and tassels on the handle bars. It was awesome.

Amanda said...

Gorgeous-would love it for my nephew!

Laura KW said...

hands down it was the year santa brought me a cabbage patch doll! I still remember sitting under the tree and staring at the wrapped box...hoping and wishing and finally screaming in delight.

Love the teether! My baby cousin (ok she's 26) had her first baby yesterday! Can't wait to meet the little guy!

milaja said...

Must be a dark skin baby toy - and it's in use almost 30 years after I got it! I don't play with it anymore, but my own children do :)

Lena said...

I love these teethers...so much.

My favorite gift was a long satiny teal nightgown with a pleated and a lacey collar - like Elizabethan, not adult - that was also super warm because it was lined with some fleecey type stuff. It sounds weird here, but man I loved it and still smile thinking about it.

anna jo said...

yes! miles needs this wooden teether! not that he has any teeth right now, or is even getting any teeth, but he will someday soon. so yes, this would be nice.

my most memorable gift as a child was when we all got rollerblades from my grandparents. we rollerbladed around their carpeted basement all night. then I could be found rollerblading around the bar in our kitchen when it was too cold or snowy/icy to go outside. loved those things.

jess said...

oooh... would love this for my little teether.. currently working on 3 at once!
honestly, i don't really remember the gifts as a kid. i remember the food, the family, the lights, the music, the coziness. this helps me to realize that my kids don't really care what's under the tree, but the feelings in our home. thank goodness!

Kerry said...

A wooden teether would be great for my May baby.

Most memorable Christmas gift... that would be when my sister and I asked for a puppy and we got... a microwave oven. Seriously.

.caroline armelle. said...

i would love this for my little teether!

my most memorable gift..
i think new doc marten boots... but i wasn't exactly a kid then. that's back when they were super cool!

Andrea said...

I know my little one would love that for Christmas! Thanks for sharing. My most memorable gift was when my parents surprised us on Christmas Eve with a trip to go surprise my grandparents for Christmas morning...they lived two states away in Idaho. It was a great 16 hours in the motor home with a gigantic surprise for them at the end.

chelle said...

a record player (yes, that dates this 37 year old) ;)

The Schoonmakers said...

My most memorable Christmas gift as a child was a racetrack. (I was a bit of a tomboy!) I remember waking up Christmas morning and sneaking downstairs to see the racetrack all set up in front of the tree and ready to be played with!

mj said...

i'm always looking for good teethers. my daughter has a neurodevelopmental disorder and, at almost three years old, still eats everything. she probably will for years. she just needs that feeling of biting, you know? these are darling!

Laura D said...

The gift that springs to mind is the one and only gift I ever sneaked to see... I very stealthily opened one end of the wrapping paper to reveal a pair of pink pajamas. I was so distraught over my dishonesty that when we got to choose a gift to open on Christmas Eve, I chose that one.

mj said...

oh, my most memorable gift is the nativity my mom gave me...it's a fabric nativity we used as children. one we could touch and explore and experience...not break! she gave it to me for my little girl to play with. :)

LMT said...

I was never much of a doll girl but one particular I really wanted one. I knew that my parents couldn't afford it so I asked Santa for it. I ended up getting it. Santa brought it to my grandparents house where we also opened presents. I knew Santa was real then!

alex said...

i would love to have this for my little one, coming june 5th.

one of my most memorable christmas gifts was a pogo stick i got when i was ten or eleven. i loved that thing, and i felt cool even then for asking for something pretty classic.

Sarah said...

When I was about 3 or 4, my parents got my two older sisters and me a Barbie doll house. The pictures that my dad snapped when our faces lit up with joy at the surprise are priceless. We LOVED it and played with it for years.

Jaclyn Bower said...

One year I got THREE Cabbage Patch Dolls for Christmas - I was in little 80's girl heaven :) Merry Christmas! jj10bower@shaw.ca

debby said...

i love this teething ring! perfect with a little one on the way.

my favorite gift as a child was a quilt that my mother made me. she had been working on it for quite some time and i had been coveting it for equally long. i had hinted that she should give it to me for christmas, but she just shrugged it off. on christmas eve, i snuck into her closet, where i knew she had hung the quilt top (which she had completed), and it was still there- no batting, no backing, incomplete. i was heartbroken, thinking that there was pretty much no way i would be getting this quilt for christmas. the next morning though, when i opened my last gift, there was the quilt, completed. i said, "you must have been up all night working on this!" it turns out that she had a friend that was making the same quilt and had borrowed her quilt top to trick me. serves me right for peeking!

how's that for a long story?

katie said...

definitely getting my pink banana-seat bike. i practically lived on that thing 18 hours a day. loved it!

Anne said...

I love this company!

My memorable gift was a robe my husband gave me. I wear it every single day. it is looking a bit tattered!

Lisa said...

I still remember getting a necklace holder and thinking it was a clothes rack for my barbie clothes. Mother had to subtly explain it so as not to give away the secret of the Big Man...

Eva and Rik said...

I remember getting a teddy bear for the teddy bear parade at school.

Love that teether!

Eliza said...

Mine memory is the same as Anna's--the year of the rollerblades!

Shimmy Shake said...

Matching dolls with my sister. They even had handmade matching outfits, from my mom...oops I mean Santa.

The King Family said...

My favorite gift was a family gift- a trampoline! My 7 siblings and I spent MANY hours jumping, laughing and playing on it. After all, isn't that what family play time is all about?!

katie said...

I would love this for my precious niece! Can I win 2 giveaways? Is that allowed??

tammy said...

wow! these are so precious! i would love one for my son.

my most memorable gift as a child was a barbie dream house -- it was as tall i was!

Anonymous said...

Mmm...tie between the original Nintendo and Cabbage Patch kids! Man the 80's were great!

Konstantina said...

My most memorable Christmas gift as a child was a beautiful doll house my father made for me. It was my dream house, it even had a front porch. My grandmother had found all sorts of small furniture- even a bathtub with feet!- that fit inside. I wish I still had that little house!

whitney said...

when i was about 7 i got a pink bike with a banana seat and streamers. i wish i still had it.

dfg said...

Santa had tied my first doll 'Teary' to the branches of the Christmas tree with a big red bow.

rosa said...

The first year my mom took my sister and I to see The Nutcracker Ballet. It was such a magical evening! We wore pretty dresses and saw downtown all decorated in Christmas lights.

Dansie Family said...

i think one of my most memorable gifts were my first tapes. "loco-motion" by kylie minogue and the original tiffany.

Abby said...

Love this teething toy. Would be a perfect gift for baby Sam. My most memorable gift as a child was probably the barbie doll house. It had my same wall paper and bedroom set up just like my real room. It was wonderful!

meg-a-paquette said...

my puppy was probably my most memorable gift on christmas!

love these!

Krissa said...

i think one of my most memorable gifts was this tent/fort thing my parents (umph...santa) set up...so when we walked out in the morning there was this huge tent/fort. it was so neat!

Anneliese said...

my mom would always set up a hunt for our family gift. i remember a wagon & a ping-pong table.

{kate} said...

My husband proposed to me on Christmas day :) So I guess it would be the ring he got me? I wear it every day!

crissy said...

Perhaps the art easel and painting set my parents got me, having taken notive of my interest in art and my love of painting. Also, the bike. I loved that bike and rode it everywhere, til I came back from girls camp to find it had been stolen... :(

Maggie Rose said...

I'd love these!

Maggie Rose said...

I'd love these!
One year my mother sewed me an entire family of dolls out of fabric scraps and things. I loved them then and love them now.

Jessi said...

adorable!! My favorite christmas gift as a child was my very first bike. A strawberry shortcake bike with a banana seat that was scratch and sniff, and of course, tassels... i loved that bike!!!
