HearthSong Review and Giveaway!!

I took my little sister over to a friends house the other day and when we left she was all excited about this chair that her friend had. It was pink and had horses on it! I decided I needed to investigate...


HearthSong sent me one of their Pink/Cowgirl Butterfly Chairs. This is really nice!



Isn't it cute?!? We put this chair over in my little sisters book corner, added a lamp, and now she has a little nook.

Here is a little bit about the Butterfly Chairs from HearthSong :
"The prancing ponies on our kids butterfly chair make quite a playful addition to any bedroom or playroom. Its luxuriously plush cover fits snuggly around its metal chair frame and can be removed for washing after many hours of horse play. Folds easily for storage."

Here is a little bit about how HarthSong was started :
"Barbara Kane started HearthSong in 1983, partly to see if other parents were experiencing the difficulty she was in finding good, wholesome toys for her children. Mostly she was motivated by her strong conviction that childhood is a special time in each human lifetime, and she wanted to make the best of it for her children. In Kane's view, "Earlier is not necessarily better. It's important that children learn basic skills, but at the right developmental age. Most of all, children need time for creative, imaginative play. In fact, it is through play that children learn most readily." The best way to express this reverence for the human experience, she felt, was through quality products.
Kane chose the company's name to reflect her values: the hearth, a traditional symbol for the center of the home, and song to symbolize the family spirit, the joy that parents and children can experience together.
In addition to its collection of "classic" childhood toys and games, HearthSong also designs and develops its own toys, family games, unusual craft kits for parents and children to make together, and decorations for seasonal celebrations that reinforce the "family" theme.
In choosing items, HearthSong merchants ask the following questions: Does this item have beauty, durability and usefulness? Does it represent a cultural heritage? Is it made of non-toxic materials? Is it developmentally appropriate for the age group for which it is intended? Does it encourage a sense of family or community? Does it have a timeless or classic quality? Only products that meet these criteria are offered in the HearthSong catalog or on our web site.
In addition, our Quality Assurance Department conducts rigorous testing of every product we carry to make sure every aspect is in strict compliance with federal guidelines. And we ask children to test them too. We write careful, explicit instructions for our kits and ask that children test those, also, before we publish them. "

This is great. My sister said that it is very comfortable. She loves that it is pink and she likes that is has horses on it! Here are some pictures of her and her chair...

(See the little horseshoes?!?)


My little sister really likes this. This is now her favorite chair and she uses it whenever she can. HearthSong has so many great toys, crafts, and games!
