Kidorable Review and Giveaway

“In 1997, Kidorable sprung from the minds, hearts and efficiency apartment of Liping and Jonathan Domsky. They proclaimed, "The world needs someone to create children's apparel and accessories that are both functional and fun. We can do that."”   And they did just that.  Kidorable is a fun company that sells umbrellas, raincoats, rain boots, backpacks, towels, scarves, and much more!  All of their items are designed in fun themes for both boys and girls.

We were recently sent this cute butterfly rain coat to review.   The timing couldn’t have been more perfect.  Just a few days after receiving it, three days worth of rain storms passed through our area. When we took the picture above, it was pouring!   My daughter was so happy to use her new raincoat that matches her umbrella and I loved that she stayed dry!
The raincoat is a perfect fit for my older daughter and is so well made that I know my younger daughter will be using it in a few years.  And they both love the look of matching their umbrella and raincoat.   If butterflies aren’t for your kids, check out all their other great themes.  Our favorites were the fairies, mermaids, lotus flower, and lady bug.  But we have a house full of girls.  If you have some handsome young men in your house, they may love the frog, dinosaur, fire truck, or pirates.

For those of you with a baby or more sophisticated taste, Kidorable has a product line for you too.  Don’t miss their baby line or their English Rose line, inspired by Madonna’s children’s book.  Kidorable has a great selection for the winter too!  They would make excellent presents for those special kids on your Holiday list. 

Kidorable has a great Holiday Gift Buying Quiz to help you find the perfect gift this Holiday season.  It's always disappointing to give a gift that a child is mesmerized with for 10 minutes, then never plays with again. Or worse, a gift that is never loved at all. It doesn't matter if you are giving toys or socks - the key is to find gifts with lasting play value. Check it out and see if your Holiday shopping is on the right track! 

Buy it: Buy your own Kidorable items today!  Prices range from around $11.50 - $45.00.
Win it:  Thanks to the generous people from Kidorable, one lucky reader of Between the Lines will win their choice of an umbrella.  Simply visit Kidorable and take the Holiday Gift Buying Quiz.  Let me know something you learned from it. This is a mandatory entry and a very short quiz.  All other entries will be deleted if this is not completed.  Please leave your email address so that I can contact you if you win!

Extras: (Remember each entry must have a separate comment and an email address is needed to contact winner.)

Well, I got a 4 out of 5! I learned that we don't need to get our kids "educational" toys to ensure they learn - they'll learn when they're ready, special toys or not

I learned Some of the most treasured items from childhood are a favorite everyday item. The trick is to find a way to excite their imagination and become part of their everyday play.

I got a 5! It reinforced my thoughts that toys can be something like simple wood toys for kids to learn and play :)

The best gifts engage a child's imagination and have lasting play value-after all, a ball only has one setting. I got 4 out of 5.
