Hearthsong Review and Giveaway!


HearthSong Recently gave me the opportunity to do a review for them! I was really excited browsing their site because there are so many neat toys! It was so hard to choose just one!

Their Story
"Since its beginning in 1983, HearthSong has been committed to helping parents follow their instincts to provide their children with age-appropriate, wholesome, quality playthings. That's because at HearthSong, we believe childhood is a vital chapter in life-a special time when children can be occupied with the joy of being children. And, equally importantly, a time when children need to experience as much creative, imaginative play as possible because kids experience so many of life's first lessons through play.

The first HearthSong catalog was printed in black and white, with pencil drawings of carefully selected toys and books and mailed from the home of founder Barbara Kane by her family. The name HearthSong was chosen to reflect core family values - the Hearth, a traditional symbol for the center of the home, and Song, a symbol of family spirit and of a special playfulness that parents and children enjoy together.

Over the next 25 years, HearthSong evolved into a nationally known and respected source for quality children's toys, games and crafts. Parents who found unique toys for their children decades ago tell us they're now thrilled to be finding the same kinds of educational, entertaining toys to give to their children's children.

Our selection of products has grown and expanded too. But we can still guarantee that each item is carefully selected for its quality, safety, and relevance to your child's development - and we are steadfast in our commitment to provide you with Toys You'll Feel Good About Giving."

I finally decided on the Double Track Racing Tower. I thought it would be a fun toy for Jack that would last through the years.


I have to say, he loves it! Whether he is using the cute little wooden cars, or balls, I would say he plays with it almost everyday for at least a little bit. And when other kids come over, no matter their age, it is usually one of the first toys they go to. It even had my husband entertained for quite a while after we first got it!

I would definitely recommend HearthSong if you are looking for good quality children's toys for Christmas gifts!

HearthSong is also generous! They are giving one of my readers the chance to win the Double Track Race Tower for themselves! How great is that?!?

I'd love to add the Spiro Hop to our backyard. It looks like a lot of fun and like it's built to last.
