Made in the U.S.A. Review and Giveaway from Challenge and Fun


We are kicking off our Made in the U.S.A. week with a bang, bringing you an awesome review and giveaway from Challenge and Fun!!!  Challenge and Fun was created in 1998 with the goal of bringing natural children's products to the U.S. Market.  Challenge and Fun offers a wide variety of products made of the finest materials for your family to enjoy for years to come!

The first product we were sent to review was the Labyrinth Balance Board



These are my favorite kind of toy because it is loads of fun and your children won't even realize it's good for them!  The Labyrinth Balance Board is made of sturdy wood and contains 3 colored balls to maneuver around the maze developing balance and patience! 



The next product is the awesome game, I Cherish Planet Earth.



A Dr. Toy  Best Green Product of 2009,
I Cherish Planet Earth is all about appreciating and preserving nature and our planet. It is a celebration of Earth's life and beauty. It is a call to get active in creating a sustainable future for all. A unique product, it is a pair-matching game with accompanying picture book, affirmations, and extensions for the whole family!

Our children are 5, 7 and 8 and they all 3 enjoyed playing this game and I loved the way that it made them think about our Earth in a different way!





The final products we received were 2 awesome CD's by Charlie Hope titled I'm Me and World of Dreams.


World of Dreams is a wonderful cd filled with soothing lullabies and songs for babies.  Our little guy loves this cd and we have used it numerous times to get him to go to sleep!

I'm Me is a collection of fun songs for children.  Our kids love singing along to the new songs and even some songs they were already familiar with such as "Oh Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. golden Sun, please shine down on me." (That's one of our personal favorites!)

Charlie Hope is a singer and songwriter who creates music for children that even parents can enjoy.  You can learn more about her at her website, Charlie Hope Music!

Challenge and Fun is a wonderful company who offers a great selection of quality products so I definitely recommend you check them out!

  13. What a hard choice! There are some really cool items on there! I can never have enough bath toys - the longer they're in the tub, the more dirt swishes off in the water! LOL! - so one of my faves is the hippo washcloth BUT I also really like the Lana Donkey! Too cute!

  20. I really liked all of their hand carved wooden play food! I love wooden toys because I feel like they'll last soo much longer! And with all my youngins...the longer they last the better! And something else I like about their wooden play food is that it's really affordable!

  64. For some reason, it was a 'challenge' to get to their website....kept being redirected, and offered other suggestions! But once there, it was worth it! Wonderful products! Love the site!
    Intrigued with the ECO product heading, and found cute toys, such as the Organic Red Goose, or white Lana Goose! Love geese, cant you tell?

    Thank you for offering these fabulous toys for your giveaway. I know it would keep my kids (and us) b usy for a l o n g time!
