Hey there Internetland, and welcome to the second installment of a Case Cringle Christmas, where I find cool stuff to give away, but you get it after Christmas, since everyone needs a pick-me-up once those credit card statements come in, amirite*?!
Since I’m a bit of a blogger sans niche, you can expect all sorts of things with my Christmas giveaways — yesterday we introduced the Alcatel onetouch Idol 3 for you folks in need of a new smartphone, but today we’re taking things in an entirely different direction!
As the blog’s grown in 2015, I’ve become all too familiar with our Purolator, FedEx and UPS distribution centres from the packages I miss while at the 9-5**.
I’m used to stuff coming through the door for me to give away and review, but as my brand starts maturing into a family blog, I’m discovering that my #BloggerLife’s beginning to impact other members of my household as well.
Little Man’s a bit too young yet to really get hyped over Christmas or eagerly wait for a dude in a big red suit to slide down our (non-functional) chimney and drop off a bunch of new toys for him to play with. He sees presents and wonders why he can’t just open them now. He sees the Christmas tree and stockings — he knows something’s different, but he can’t quite connect the dots around what time of year it is… I mean, he’s only 2 after all.
But it is a season of giving indeed, and that’s exactly what cloud b had in mind when they sent some gifts for Little Man and the new addition to be, helping keep a certain little guy well-distracted while we get our final details sorted for the holidays ahead!
With Palmer blood coursing deep through his veins, Little Man’s pretty much a champion sleeper, so I’ll leave the review of the cloud b Twilight Noah’s Ark and SuperMax the Turtle until his younger brother’s born sometimes in the new year. But the last item in my cloud b delivery — a not-so-little something called the Cuddly Comfeez Sleep Sheep — has made a huge change in how the little guy plays around the house!
Here’s how cloud b introduces the product on their site:
Imagine living in a home where all the furniture is far larger than you – clearly built for someone else. The chairs are tough to climb onto and too big to feel cozy. That’s the life of a toddler – but now there’s something better. A pint-sized plush lounger that’s so soft and cute, it could have come straight from the dreams of a toddler. And it’s not just a soft spot to sit, it’s a fluffy friend to spend time with. Cuddly Comfeez are the cutest, most comfortable and most fun pieces of furniture for tired little toddlers!
From what I’ve seen so far, there’s no way I’m denying that Little Man’s new ovine friend quickly became a favourite in his life, often the subject of affectionate hugs and kisses as he nuzzled into its embrace. In short, the Cuddly Comfeez Sleep Sheep’s easily one of the best things to come through our doors this year!
Which is exactly why I want to give you the chance to win one for the diminutive individuals in your life along with cloud b’s Twilight Noah’s Ark and their SuperMax the Turtle, in a prize pack worth $150! All it takes is following the instructions in the widget below, and your entry’s as good as gold! (Open to Canadians aged 18+, living outside of Quebec. Contest ends 12/29 @ 11:59 PM EST.)
cloud b — Giving Kids What They Need to Enjoy Themselves While Rushing AND Resting!
As parents, we want to give our kids everything under the sun, but it’s also up to us to make sure we give them things that enrich their lives, not limit them.
In Casa de Palmer, we don’t expose Little Man to much TV and indulge his imagination with each passing whim, so tactile toys like cloud b’s Cuddly Comfeez are great new additions to a world where he keeps discovering new ways to connect with it.
With another day wrapped up for Case Cringle and another gift revealed, I hope you’re ready for the Christmas just ahead! As the year winds down and the pens cross the items from our many to-do lists, at the end of the day I hope to relax, chill, and get just as comfortable as my son is in his new chair!
Thanks for reading and until the next,
*Okay, yes, we all know I just started my Christmas giveaways really late, but you don’t have to rub it in my face, okay???
**People often ask why I don’t just get things shipped to my workplace.
- You never know who’s going to handle your stuff in an office of 200+ people, and there’s no guarantee you’re ever going to see it.
- I subway to work, and you never know when a package will be too heavy to carry — this body’s not getting any younger!
So it’s just easier to have packages go where they need to and drive the ten minutes out whenever there’s something waiting for me.

Disclaimer: cloud b was gracious enough to send some toys for our review, and I’m proud that Little Man really took to his Sleep Sheep — it’s a new selling point on the days he’s reluctant to come home; any parent can tell you they’d take any tool they can find to get the job done!
