Big Time Toys Co. Sea Monkeys Giveaway - 6 Winners!!!

We are kicking off the Two Classy Chics Holiday Toys Week today and our first offering this week is Sea Monkeys! We will be offering several toy product reviews & giveaways during the next week so let's gear up early for the upcoming holiday season!

Today I would like to introduce you to a toy company called Big Time Toys. This fabulous company has been in business since 1995 and is based out of Nashville Tennessee. The company is a member of TIA which is the Toy Industry of America.

Big Time Toys markets a lot of toys...some of the ones you may be familiar with are Dippin' Dots Frozen Dots Maker, Moon Shoes, Socker Boppers, Splash Out, SuperSwimmer, YoYo Ball, Tattoodles Prince Surprise Doll, Yada Yada Yada and the Amazing Live Sea Monkeys.

My Review: Big Time Toys was gracious enough to send me a package of their Amazing Live Sea Monkeys for my product review. If you are not familiar with what sea monkeys are, here is some info from the Sea Monkeys web site.

From The Site: Sea-Monkeys® are a true miracle of nature. They exist in suspended animation inside their tiny eggs for many years. The instant-life crystals, in which the eggs are enclosed, preserve their viability and help to extend still further their un-hatched life span! Sea-Monkeys are real Time-Travelers asleep in biological time capsules for their strange journey into the future! The joy of watching Sea-Monkeys grow offers a lot more than just pure fun. It is one of the outstanding educational experiences of a lifetime, because the entire life-cycle of these unique creatures are fully recreated.

The Amazing Live Sea-Monkeys kit comes with everything you will need to get started including the little water tank, Sea-Monkey Water Purifier, instant live eggs and the growth food. You first fill up the little tank with water & add the purifier and let it sit for 24 hours. After that, you pour in the instant live eggs. On the 5th day you will start feeding your new live Sea-Monkeys!

My Overall Impression: I remember having Sea-Monkeys when I was a child and my daughter also had them when she was little. Now that I am a grandmother, I am sharing the Sea-Monkey experience with my granddaughter. What I loved about these is that everything you need is included (except for the water). Within 2 days of setting it up, you will have live Sea-Monkeys! Kids just love having their own little pets to feed and take care of. I think its a great experience for them and every child should have Sea-Monkeys at some point in time in their childhood. (how fun would it be for your child to get one of these under the holiday tree!)

Buy It: You can buy the Amazing Live Sea-Monkeys at various retail locations across America.

Win It: Six (6) Lucky people will each win an Amazing Live Sea-Monkeys Kit! (kit style may vary)

CONTEST IS CLOSED

I would personally like to thank Big Time Toys & Sea Monkeys for allowing me to do a product review for their company and for hosting a giveaway here on the Two Classy Chics Blog.
