Guess Who Will Love Riding in the Car Now? $200 value

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

Okay, I’m done counting!  Whew!  Quite the workout.  The Tinkerbell Mix Max goes to D!  And the SpongeBob set goes to Shane!

Congratulations. Look for an email from me.
I don’t know how my parents did it.
Our summer vacations were dominated by road trips.  
One of my first memories is of a very long car ride to Disney World, back in the 1970’s.  It must have been in the winter because our little Ford Pinto didn’t have a heater and we kept warm with quilts. 
That worked out great until my twin sister and I decided to ‘play horsey’ with our older brother. We used his belt for the reigns.  
Around his neck.  Great fun, until he puked chocolate milk.  All over the blankets. That were keeping us warm.  My next memories are of a cold car ride to Disney World.
Because we entertained ourselves.
Not something my kids excel at on our road trips these days. We’ve got the whole audiovisual thing going on in our minivan and a plethora of travel paraphernalia. 
And I’m not about to change it. Because I like progression.
Call me a sissy.  A weenie.  Just don’t take it away. M’kay?
And because my Momma taught me to play nice and share, I want your last traveling summer getaway or trip to Wal Mart to go well.
I’m giving away TWO amazing prizes at a $100 value each!
I will choose two random winners.  One will receive a brand new Disney MixMax Video MP3 Digital Media Player.  Tinkerbell edition.  It holds 240 songs and plays 16 hours of video.  It’s rechargeable and comes with software, earbuds, and a wrist strap! Value $100. Perfect for those long car rides!
The other random winner will receive two $50 prizes, for a total value of $100.  Both of these items are brand new and made by Npower’s Nickelodeon line, Sponge Bob edition:  A digital music player (MP3) that holds 250 songs, comes with software, ear buds and is rechargeable AND a flash digital camera that holds approx. 79 photos.  It has sound effects, an LCD screen, software, adhesive skins, a wrist strap, cables and much more! Perfect for busy hands on a road trip. US shipping only.
So, leave a comment (ONE, Please) with your choice (tinkerbell or sponge bob) and you can get double entries if you add this button to your blog (because I’m not above bribery) or subscribe to my feed (let me know in your comment if you do this or already have):

    Oh, what a wonderful giveaway! Your’re right, it would make that next vacation a little easier. We just did a 3800 mile trip recently (me and 4 kids 7 years down to 4 months) and it was definitely interesting!

    We moved to Texas from the midwest a couple years ago, so we are now making a few road trips a year to visit family……and now we are listening to our kids say “Are we there yet??” – and, now I appreciate my parents even more! Thank you for this wonderful giveaway and keep blogging!

    My most “interesting” memory of a family trip? The year we went from IL to the UP of Michigan. Long enough trip with 3 kids and a baby. Then add the fact that my dad made a wrong turn somewhere and we almost ended up in Canada. Yeah. Really. That was the trip from heck.

    I’d like to win the Tinkerbell, please. With 5 kids myself it would definitely come in handy.

    I also subscribed via Feedburner and added your link to my site at

    Feel free to take a cruise by my site to enter my giveaway. (IF I win, please e-mail me at Heather @ (same e-mail I subscribed with), as my gmail is usually overrun with misc. e-mail.

    Thanks for this opportunity!!

    Tinkerbell for my daughter and this would be so great for her, we’re driving from NJ to Fl in a couple months and this would work well in the car.


  5. 1069


    With four (three boys and a girl) either one would work. My boys are beyond “if it is pink or girly they wont touch it” and well, even though we “don’t do sponge bob here” that looks pretty tame (and who knows, it could be his twin brother who doesn’t have a show).
    thanks for doing this.
    Happy day.

    My daughter loves Tinkerbell…she will only wear undies if they have Tink on them! Every time she sees earrings in a store, she informs me that she is looking for tinkerbell earrings — typical two-year old I guess!

  7. 1074


    Tink or Bob I’d take either one. :)

    Thanks for the chance and bringing back my memories of my trip to
    Disneyland when I was 10 in a Datsun stationwagon with no air conditioning! ha.

    I’d have to go with Spongebob, since I have 2 kids and this has 2 prizes in it they can share. We just made our first longer road trip this past weekend with them and it went pretty well. Only 2-3 “are we there yet?”

  9. 1093


    You have a LOT of reading to do if you read every comment…what a fun response to your giveaway. I would chose the SpongeBob gift. My 5 year old daughter would LOVE her very own camera. That would save my cell phone battery a LOT! Thanks for the chance to win.

    We took our oldest to the beach for the first time when she was 22 months old. She was so scared to touch the water because of the waves swooshing in. It was cloudy too but we still had a blast. She kept saying eww water is dirty.

    Tinkerbell we love.

    My choice, if I win, has to be SpongeBob because I have 4 boys! Thanks for the giveaways.

    We make a trip every year to the folks, one day ALL day in the car with two very active boys proves to be a very LONG car ride. Thank god for portable dvd players or I would be admitted to the insane asylum. I dont know how my parents managed car rides with seven. I’d have been committed

    Tinkerbell is perfect. My daughter loves her and she loves her music, especially in the car. That way she doesn’t have to listen to mine (because “we don’t have the same tastes and style Mom…”_ .

  18. 1128


    This is so wonderfully generous of you!! I hope to win Tinkerbell. I also put your button on my sidebar and I added you to my reader!!!!! Thanks so much!

    Even at 19, my daughter is a tinkerbell fanatic. She even has her car pimped out in tink gear. If I win, I’d have to put in for tinkerbell or I’d never be forgiven.

  22. 1141


    I would pick the Tinkerbell themed MP3 player. I would like to win one so that I can load it up with great music I could enjoy while doing various graphics projects on the computer. Listening to my favorite songs would make my workdays even more enjoyable.

    Thank you for this great giveaway.
