Arm & Hammer toothbrushes for your family (giveaway - Canada only)

I'm so behind on blog posts and reviews that April was Oral Health Month and I'm writing this in May. At least it's the beginning of May? I should be fired.

I was kindly sent a package Arm & Hammer electric toothbrushes for our family to try.

The kids were particularly excited to open their Spinbrush My Way! toothbrushes, and have been using them happily ever since. The cool thing about these toothbrushes is that they come with a ton of stickers for the kids to decorate them themselves. We received a pink one and a blue one, but luckily Oliver is a fan of pink, and Callum shared his 'boy' stickers - actually, they both used some from both packages.

I tried the Spinbrush Globrush. It's meant to stay lit up for 2 minutes of brushing time, which was really helpful while it latest. It also changes colours halfway through. Unfortunately, there seemed to be a problem with the battery in my brush, and it's not replaceable. I'm an infrequent user of electric toothbrushes, anyway, so no great loss. They sort of make my head feel funny. I'm back to my regular dentist freebie one now.

My husband tried the Spinbrush Pro Clean Sonic toothbrush and felt it cleaned his teeth thoroughly. He's a big fan of electric toothbrushes. It's a serious looking brush with replaceable AA batteries.

In celebration of the month after Oral Health Month (maybe next year I'll get this right), would you like to win your own pack of toothbrushes for your family?

Giveaway: Arm & Hammer dental pack containing:

•1 Arm & Hammer Spinbrush My Way! toothbrush for boys
•1 Arm & Hammer Spinbrush My Way! toothbrush for girls
•1 Arm & Hammer Spinbrush Pro Clean Sonic toothbrush for adults
•1 Arm & Hammer toothpaste

All you need to do to enter is leave me a comment. It can say whatever you want, but I'm curious: do you like electric toothbrushes? Do you think your kids would enjoy the stickers on the My Way! brushes? One comment/entry per person, please. Make sure it includes a valid email address.

This giveaway is open to residents of Canada only and will close at 10pm EST on Wednesday May 11 2011. I'll pick a winner using at that time or soon after.

Good luck!

Giveaway: $100 value Easter baking Rice Krispies gift basket (CLOSED)

Despite the fact that I don't believe in or participate in organized religion, I do celebrate 4 day weekends that involve chocolate consumption. Easter! You are awesome.

I had already planned to make some cupcakes with the kids this weekend, using some toasted coconut to make nests on top, with Mini Eggs (if I leave any after opening the bag) as the bird offspring for some seasonal decor.

But thanks to Rice Krispies and Kellogg's, I plan to do even more baking this weekend. Yesterday a lovely gift basket arrived at my door and we're very exited to dig in! It contains:

A copy of Rice Krispies Chocolate Bunnies Recipe and some of the ingredients and tools necessary to make the recipe including:
A full size box of Rice Krispies Original Cereal
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
A bag of marshmallows
Williams Sonoma food colouring
Baking Pan
Cookie Cutters
President's Choice gourmet jelly beans for decorations

My youngest is an especially big fan of Rice Krispies cereal, and both of them are excited to see how the chocolate bunnies turn out. What a very generous basket! How would you like to win one to cook with your kids next week? Okay, it may arrive a little late for Easter but I know my kids would be happy to have it come anytime.

Here's how to enter:

1. Leave me a comment. Any favourite things to bake with your kids/small relations?
2. Leave the comment before 9pm EST on Thursday April 21 2011.
3. Be Canadian.
4. Have a valid email address I can use to contact you (leave it in a field/in the comment).

One entry per person, please! I'll use to pick a winner soon after contest close. I will try to get the PR company to send the gift basket as soon as possible. Good luck. Thanks to Kellogg's for the giveaway opporunity.
