Grateful Giveaways #2: Jakks Fun Toys of Summer

To kick off the summer, I’m excited to once again be part of the Grateful Giveaways group, bringing you 9 awesome giveaways for more summer fun. Watch for a new one every hour on the hour!

Next up is a giveaway for the kids:

Do you remember the summer days of your childhood? It probably included long days spent playing outside, and that probably included the classic Big Wheel Trike for more than a few of us!

Jakks Pacific makes both classic toys that we grew up with – like Big Wheels and Cabbage Patch dolls – and some of the most popular toys of today – including the Disney Fairies collection and Monsuno action figures!

Original Big Wheel
The original Big Wheel Trike comes with a 16″ big wheel and three-position seat to grow with your kids. Perfect for kids ages 3 to 8 years, this classic toy provides hours of outdoor fun!

Sky High Tink
Send Tinkerbell flying high into the sky. Just set her in the flower base, pull the string and watch her soar up to 10 feet high!

Monsuno Action Figures & Launch Zone Combat Battle Arena
Monsuno transforming action figures are ready for a head-to-head battle competition in the high-tech engineered Launch Zone Combat Arena!

One lucky SheSaved reader will win set of all three toys from Jakks Pacific, including the Original Big Wheel, Sky High Tink and a set of Monsuno Action Figures Plus Arena!

    I did not have one, but my cousins did, and I played with them whenever we went there! My favorite summer memory would be all the time we spent at my mom’s friend’s lake house. It wasn’t what you’d normally think of, a regular house at the lake, it was a bare-bones place. Only one room had air conditioning, there was only one small bathroom, and it was a crappy place at best. A lot of times we would sleep in a tent outside. Even as crappy as the house was, it was a blast to be out there!
