Giveaway Week Starts TODAY!


Here we are. It’s the second week of 2013. What adventures have you already been on with your tykes?

We’ve done a winter hike and that’s it. J-Man was sick this last week so we were holed up inside for awhile. Not exactly how we wanted to start the New Year. It was a repeat of last year, but what do you do…watch movies, snuggle and get better.

I had some great giveaways planned for last week but because I was lazy, enjoying my time with J-Man and pretty much taking a break from Adventures Tykes I figured the second week of the New Year was still okay to have a giveaway party.

Hope you don’t mind.

So here it is!

Everyday this week I will be giving away outdoor items for tykes to gear them up for their adventures. There is some awesome gear to be won from some very generous brands.

Would be a blast to have more Icebreaker equipment for her to utilize on these adventures!

  54. Melissa, you are right on the money! Our tykes deserve Icebreaker, they are often more active than we adults are so they deserve no-itch, body temperature regulating, no-stink threads made by the good folks in New Zealand. My wife and I are just getting into Icebreaker, maybe one garment per year, because it is expensive but it is worth it. My three year old and one year old love sledding so we’ll be doing that this winter and maybe a couple hikes– I’d love to get my two boys in Icebreaker– like I said, they deserve it. More smiles, more warmth, and less laundry! Everyone wins. This is sustainable stuff, thanks Melissa!

    If only we get out this year! Due in July it will be short day trips for sure – winter clothes that fit over the belly – not so much. We are hoping to get out to the near by mountains and do some tobogganing on a few nice days and this summer even if we can picnic near a mountain stream it’ll be bliss.

  62. We are taking the kids to Hawaii this year! So excited!!!
