For the Seed Starting Grow Kits giveaway:
Lori, Jennifer, Dawn and Emily!
The amazing Seed Starting Grow Kits from Gardeners Supply Company help your seeds sprout quickly in a convenient, self-watering system. Simply add water and the eco-friendly coconut coir pellets expand to fill each cell, and your seeds! The biggest problem for home seed starting is over- or under-watering, but not with these trays! Just fill the reservoir and plants get the water they need, when they need it. Includes an extra-sturdy, leakproof reservoir, platform and planting cell tray that are all dishwasher-safe, making them easy to clean and sterilize between uses. A clear germination cover maintains proper humidity while the seeds are germinating. The support platform that holds the planting cells doubles as a seedling ejector.

For Prize #3: KinderFeets Bike: A $109 Value! (Full Review at Hobo Mama)
Derived from the Dutch for “children” and “bicycle,” a Kinderfeets is a wooden push bike designed to ease the transition to pedal-powered bicycle at a toddler’s comfort level. The creator wanted his son to be able to cruise once he became confident enough, so he broke the push bike mold and added footpegs. Knowing kids love to get dirty, he added a removable seat cover that can go in the wash with the rest of the laundry. Other push bikes have inflatable tires that go flat, interrupting the fun. But Kinderfeets’ tires don’t require air. Plus, Kinderfeets’ colorful chalkboard finish provides a reusable canvas for children to exercise their creativity.

For Prize #8: What a Lovely Sound! Children’s Book from Starr Meneely: A $10 Value! (More at Code Name: Mama)
If nature made music, what would it sound like? And if you were used to the sounds of the city, would you be able to hear it? In “What a Lovely Sound!,” Melody Jane, a little girl from a big city, is accustomed to hearing “[b]uses whirring, cars beeping, motorbikes roaring, [and] taxicabs rushing . . . .” So when she takes her first trip to the countryside, she is stunned by the silence she finds. But what she discovers is music to her ears.
