Hickory, Dickory, Dock... this is one nice clock!

I don't normally do 'giveaways' on my blog. My first giveaway was a few months ago for a Coach gift certificate that I wanted to give one of my fabulous readers - because truly, you are what makes blogging so amazing. The comments, the connections, the networking, the friendships formed - it was my way of saying thank you. (I'll be doing another one of those soon, too!)

Well, I recently came across an awesome website called Olive Kids that specializes in personalized items for children. Olive Kids has been featuared in Martha Stewart Kids, Parenting and Parents magazine. I just fell in love with all the things they have for children's rooms! They have everything from wall art, to fun shower curtains, to awesome bedding I had to contact them! Because, well, everything was so cute!

Dealing with Olive Kids was an awesome experience - they were so happy and asked me to review a personalized clock for Christos, and they are also generously giving a clock away to one of my readers, too!

The clocks arrived yesterday - I got one for Dimitry, as well - and they are so cute! They are both personalized with their names, and each fit the 'theme' of their room, too.

For Christos, I got the Under Construction clock:



And for Dimitry, the Trains, Planes, and Trucks clock:



Both look great! And the best part? They are not noisy at all! We used to have a clock in Christos's room before, but because of the constant ticking, we took it down. These clocks will not bother you at all - they are noise-free!

They have 37 clocks you can choose from, by the way - there is certainly something for every child's room!

So... if you want one of these fabulous clocks, just leave me a comment telling me which clock you'd order for your child!

You can also tweet about this giveaway for an extra entry!

The giveaway ends at the end of the day tomorrow. I'll announce the winner on Monday!

Good luck, everyone!


Edited to add:

Thank you to everyone who entered to win a free, personalized clock by Olive Kids!

I totally love the clocks I got for Christos and Dimitry!

The winner of the clock is.... Nap Warden! Congratulations, Cynthia! Pretty neat that the winner was also the first person to leave a comment, don't you think? I thought it was pretty cool! What are the chances, huh?

Perfectly Me said...

OMG, this comes at the perfect time I am redoing my son's room because I am pregnant with my 2nd little boy and we have a transportation theme going on, so I would love the Trains, Planes and Trucks for their room, even the colors match the colors we have for the room. Thanks for introducing me to this site!

Okay, I think I may be too late but I took a quick look at their clocks..and to my surprise they had one with my sons name on it already AND it's exactly what he is into..it's the "Out of this World" clock...perfect!

Their items are very reasonable too by the looks of things, which makes it even better!

Wow! What a great selection they have. I would love the "out of this world" one for Cash's best friends birthday present!
For my boys, I love the pirate ones! Very cute-thanks for sharing the site!

Capital Mom said...

Hard choice. I like the mermaid best.

Catwoman said...

How cute are those!!!! I'd heard of Olive Kids before too, but had never gone to the Web site before. Great! Now I want just about everything on that site, thanks a lot for getting me in trouble!

I totally will get one of the Planes, Trains & Trucks clocks for Little Man, the one with the fire truck on it.

Since Tiny Man can't read time yet and I don't know what theme we'll use for his toddler room (although, now I know to get it form Olive Kids!), I don't think he'll be jealous yet! :)

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

I really liked the construction one for Asher and the Space one for Elijah. How cute are they!?

Julie said...

The jellybean is all about rocket ships, so the Our Of This World one would be great.

Oh! I would definitely have to get the Pirate themed one because we live near the water and his theme is Ocean Life/Pirates! Yay! This is wonderful, thanks!

BeachMama said...

Very cute clocks, the mermaid one would go very well with Apples room. So sweet.

Hula Hooping Mom said...

Those are so cute, my boy would love one! He is so into sports right now, that I would have to choose the Game On! clock :)

daddybookins said...

This is way too cool! Hopefully, I still have time to enter....West Coast final call?? Here's my pick, it's rather simple:
Trains, Planes and Trucks
Pers. Clock
OK-TPTX-004
It's the one with just the train on....lil boo has so been infatuated with trains presently, they are over-riding the 'cars' affair...which is really cool! Anyhow, hopefully I entered in time!
Peas Out!
