Soapbox Saturday - play sword GIVEAWAY!!!

Calling all moms of boys!!!!  I am so excited today to tell you about my son's favorite new toy AND to offer you a chance to win a 3-pack of them.  Amy of the Etsy shop "All Boy House" makes these amazing, fun swords.  She sent us three to try out and let's just say they were a real HIT around here (no pun intended).

They are the light swords....



....and the pirate sword.


What do I love about them?  They aren't floppy or flimsy.  However, they are still soft, so they can't dent my walls or furniture in any way.  They don't take up a lot of room.  They allow my son to use his imagination, rather than toys with loud noises and lights.  They are completely adorable.  They are handmade.  They are made by someone who has boys and "gets" boys.

What do the boys like about them?  They are shiny and cool.  Need I say more?  No, but I will.  They are allowed to hit things with them.  They are small enough that they can easily be brought to a friend's house.  But best of all......the duels.


These would really make a fabulous gift for any boy.


Even a space hero has to take a break after a long day, but he keeps his sword close to protect his loot.


So you want to win a three-pack of your choice?  I know you do!  Here's what you do:

Visit her etsy store and tell us which three you want in your 3-pack.  Leave a comment with your answer.  You can leave two comments if you're a follower or subscriber.  Drawing closes on Wednesday night.  The winner will be announced Thursday morning.  Good luck!

My three kiddos would LOVE the lightsabers! We are HUGE Star Wars fanatics and I do not like spending money on a cheap plastic lightsaber that gets broke so fast and hurts each other. These would be a wonderful fit in our house!
