Smiggle making Christmas extra special this year

Christmas time is a very exciting time in the Tink house, and we Tink’s do Christmas well. We love to decorate the entire house, every room, even the toilet! We hang up lights, watch Christmas movies and make gingerbread houses and while I pride myself on being Mrs Claus herself, one tradition does make me cringe…. the advent calendar. If feeding children chocolate each and every morning for 24 days is not bad enough, the cream on the cake is then watching the sugar highs and lows which always lead to tantrums because I won’t let them open just one more. I try very hard to fall in love with the advent calendar because as a child my grandparents always made sure we had one. I can clearly remember being so excited opening a new window everyday but alas now I have my own two children I’ve been hunting for a substitute that is more treat than tantrum. Recently all my dreams came true when I opened a package from my good friends at Smiggle, to find 2 advent calendars both of which were chocolate free! 24 fabulous days of super cute treats that will keep kids excited without the highs and lows of a chocolate frenzy, not to mention save you the dentist bill. Each window is filled with all the incredible products you can expect from Smiggle. Bright fun colours and products they can use to get creative at home. Amazing value for money, considering each product they can keep and use.

Each of the Smiggle advent calendars also come with a Willy Wonka Style golden ticket for a chance to win $1000 to spend with Smiggle. Such a cool idea with back to school already around the corner and a very expensive time of year.

So although it’s not December 1st I literally couldn’t wait and the kid inside me just had to have a little peek and look at what I found inside!!

Now before I go crazy I’m going to put them away until the first but in the meantime I’m giving one lucky reader the chance to win their own Smiggle advent calendar valued at $39.95.

Simply share with me why you would like to win? I will choose my favourite answer and announce a winner on Monday 4/12/17 at 9am.

    My kiddies absolutely love Smiggles! It is so hard to get them out of the store! Love the idea of a choc free calendar with surprises not only for them everyday but for me ! This would absolutely make them so excited every morning! 😊😊😊

    I’m creating an activity nook for my boys. An item each day to add to my budding picasso’s new and exciting space would be great. Then there is the chance to find that golden ticket to really Smiggle up our world. It’s stuff dreams are made of.

    My energiser bunnies are desperate for an advent calendar but this mumma ain’t handing over the chocolate kind. Inedible rubber and stationary surprises…yes please!

    My darling Little Nephew Jamie adores everything smiggle. If you ask him what he likes doing or ask him question like do you like sports he always answers “well no, I’m more the arty type, I like my notebooks, pens, pencils & stuff. I like doing sketches & art work & Dad photoshops my best ones for me” haha. He loves drawing, colouring & creating. His also does not like Chocolate, which I must admit has always puzzled me as his the only Child I’ve ever known to not like Chocolate. So this is the perfect Advent Calendar for him. I know he will love & appreciate it very much.

    My daughter has allergies and I’ve never been able to find an advent calendar suitable for her. Smiggle is brilliant! Bringing out an advent calendar that encourages their creativity, helps get a start on back to school stationary and with no chocolate in sight. Amazing! We’d love to be considered ❤️

    As a kid I always ate 24 chocolates on day one then closed all of the doors and had to fake eating a chocolate every day for the next 23 days! If I had a Smiggle one back then I probably would’ve managed to get the genuine excitement each day instead of my sugar addiction taking over on day one. If my daughter had a Smiggle advent calendar it would stop me from going in and eating all of her chocolates on day one and closing the doors 😬

    I’d like to win this for my daughter Ava, 10. From a shy little girl who could barely get a word out to putting herself forward to be a school leader for year 6 next year, I’m so proud of her! She fought her fear of public speaking and did a great job. Fingers crossed she gets chosen but in the meantime some Smiggle goodies would brighten her December days 😊

    Miss 12 and Mr 8 are both smiggle addicts, this might make up for their slack mother not yet organizing an advent calendar, of any kind, let alone a non chocolate one 😨

    My stationery loving 8 year old who takes after me would be giddy to countdown to Christmas with this calendar. She’s feeling a little left out as almost everyone in her class has something Smiggle and the poor girl hasn’t even stepped foot in a store given the closest store being over 400km away.

    My son has food allergies so ‘traditional’advent calendars are no good for him. I feel like he always misses out on the fun things because of this. But a smiggle calendar would be perfect and he can be just the same as the other kids. 😊

    This would be the perfect way to teach my kids the days, numbers in a healthy and safe way, knowing that they will get something useful and to keep behind the windows, still to bring joy and fun to the lead up to christmas. Smiggle products are our favourite in the house hold. So much range to choose from and the colours.
