On the Road Again Giveaway Hop (ends 8/11) U.S./Canada

Welcome to the On the Road Again Giveaway Hop hosted by Tales from the Nursery and Views from the 'Ville.  You will find all sorts of prizes that are great for vacation and travel.  I will be offering a great prize pack that will make traveling easier for your kids.  

Let me introduce you to a wonderful product that is going to be my lifesaver with my daughter from here on out.  They are called My Hikes, and they are something my daughter has needed for years, and I am glad to have finally found them.

First of all, here is some general information about My Hikes.  My Hikes Pants Cuff Fasteners special fasteners for adjusting the length of your kids' pants.  During the summer, your child can roll your pants up and keep them in place.  And during the school year, if your kids' pants are a little too long, this is just the thing to keep them in place without any sewing or permanent changes.  They are very easy to use, and they stay in place.  Not only that, they are cute.  The designs are 3-D, and kids love them.  They passed the small parts and lead test, so they are safe for kids of all ages,  And, moms and dads can wear them, too

Now to our personal experience.  You can see my daughter's jeans in the above picture.  The jeans are a little longer than she likes.  And she has worn them like this.  If you were to look at them closely, you would find some frayed threads on the bottom.

This is after the My Hikes were used.  you can see the one (the other one is on the other side, but my picture does not show that), and I think you can see the difference.  These look nice.  I could send her to school in these with no trouble.  And I know they would stay and still look very nice.  I am forever having to buy pants and jeans that are too long for her because she is so tall for age.  Often, I have to get her a size bigger so it will fit her through the waist and crotch.  But that makes the pant legs too long.  I will not longer have that problem thanks to My Hikes!

The good news is that if you go to their site before September 30 and use this code (MyHikes40off50), you will get 40% off your order and $1.98 flat shipping rate in the U.S. ($3.98 in Canada).  And, if you haven't guessed, my giveaway will feature one of these My Hikes.  These are idea for traveling and for the regular school year.  Really, any time!

I am adding one more thing to this giveaway.  Remember, this is for your kids.  I will allow you to pick out one book (U.S./Canada) or CD/DVD (U.S.) $10 or under for your kid.  Yes, it does have to be for your child.  If you don't have a child, think of the child to whom you will be giving this prize pack.  Or if you are entering for yourself, please pick a family favorite book, movie, or CD.  

This giveaway will be open from now through August 11 at 9 P.M. Pacific time.  All you need to do is enter the rafflecopter below, and you are in to win!  Please note the giveaway is only open to the U.S or Canada.  And after you enter my giveaway, don't forget to hop along to the other blogs for the chance to win even more fantastic giveaways!

  7. Oh my goodness, I love these things! I don't think I am even going to wait for the giveaway. I must own My Hikes before the start of this school year... That's one of the main reasons I love giveaways and mommy bloggers as much as I do. I learn so much about products I never would have heard about otherwise. Thank you, Ruth! You have just made me a very happy girl. All of the back to school shopping I have to get done tomorrow just got a whole lot less stressful.
