This giveaway, however, is a bit different. My aunt has started a company called Tactile Tote. Born out of the type of anxiety that I have faced regarding moments like WHY ARE YOU TOUCHING THE FLOOR and OH MY GOD DID YOU JUST LICK YOUR SHOE?!, Tactile Totes are a "brand of children's touchable bags [that] provide kids with a fun and safe way to meet their tactile needs - wherever they may be! At home, in the car or at the store, children can find comfort at their fingertips!"
In other words, these fantastic bags will give your kids a reason to keep their hands busy in a more productive way than say, digging for gold. (If we're using my own children as an example. I'm sure YOURS wouldn't even DREAM of nostril picking.) The boys' bag attaches around the waist, and the girls' bag has a traditional shoulder strap, and they come in a variety of colors and textures. While Tactile Totes can be especially useful for special needs children, they are just as fun and appropriate for just about any young rugrat. You can see all the designs and learn more about the product at the Tactile Tote website.
To celebrate my aunt's achievement and this great product, I'm going to be giving away TWO Tactile Totes, one for a boy and one for a girl, two two separate readers. Leave a comment on this post indicating which you'd prefer, and complete the appropriate Raffle Copter tasks to be considered for the contest.
