Totally Kids {A Giveaway}

A few months ago* I was asked to visit a local store here in Minnesota called Totally Kids. They had just teamed up with the Minnesota Autism Center, to set up an area with Autism “friendly” toys. Of course I said “Yes” because really- how cool is that?

Professionals from the MAC volunteered their time to go into the store, put together a selection of toys and make labels for the display explaining who the toys would be appropriate for, what the purpose of the toy was and how it would be used. As a mom to two kids with autism, I like knowing what exactly they are supposed to be getting out of different toys because sometimes toys just seem like, well, toys. And I know there is so much more to it.

Sortin Cube Totally Kids They have the obvious things like sensory balls and a huge selection of bean bag chairs and of course all the puzzles and stacking blocks and sorting cubes you could ever ask for. They also have this.

Which I need for every room in my house. Or at least one for each floor because my furniture is being jumped to death by little bodies that yearn to bounce!

But, Totally Kids is a store for everyone. Actually, this store is pretty amazing. Tucked into an unassuming strip mall, this warehouse style store has the largest selection of kids beds and bedding I have ever seen. We had just moved the boys to toddler beds a few weeks before and I left there contemplating how soon we could get a twin over double bunk.

They also have a great selection of toys including a very sizable collection of Melissa and Doug items.

Totally Kids is giving away one $50 Giftcard to one of my lucky readers!


Disclosure: I was not compensated in any way for this post. (Although if a twin over double bunk were to show up at my door I would not send it away!)

*This is where I earn my Slacker stripes- it’s taken me MONTHS to write this! Gah!
