the tag*a*long kids Review & Giveaway - CLOSED

This giveaway has ended!  Thanks for visiting!
We are always trying to find the next greatest adventure, whether that's a trip to the zoo or museum or heading to the grocery store to come up with the ingredients to a fun recipe but it can be difficult to keep track of two kids who would rather ride "garbage-man" style on the shopping cart than walk beside it until we introduced the tag*a*long to them!  We received a tag*a*along to review and it's amazing how giving kids something of their own to hold onto makes them want to obey and follow the "rules" of the store!  We recently took it to the grocery store on a Saturday afternoon which is probably the busiest time to be there and both of my sons loved the tag*a*along! It was easier to keep track of them since one knew that they were in charge of the shopping cart and to not let it go while the other one was carrying a bag of apples back to the cart!

We have big plans for future adventures too with trips to the zoo and museums when we typically take one stroller and trade-off with who's riding and who's holding hands!  Neither really likes the restraing of holding hands and it can be difficult to steer the stroller so this is an added relief to both mom/dad and child!  Just remember that you still have to enforce the rules because your child is not tethered to the tag*a*long, but merely holding it!

The tag*a*long attaches easily!  Instead of describing how easy it attaches, check out this quick video - no tools required and you can move your tag*a*long from stroller to grocery cart to diaper bag/purse handle with ease in less than 10 seconds!

You can read answers to frequently asked questions here (including why it's recommended for 3 years and up)!  Some additional recommendations for use from the manufacturer include:  Use under adult supervision and with discretion at all times, recommended ages are 3 and up, do not use the tag*a*long to lift or carry the stroller, keep it clean! Wash with soap and warm water as needed.

You can purchase your tag*a*long directly from Naptime Industries or through Amazon for $9.99.  In addition, tag*a*long would like to give one lucky reader a tag*a*long in their choice of colors, so keep reading because this is the perfect addition to your diaper bag, purse, or glovebox for any adventure that may come your way!

Giveaway Details:
The winner will receive a tag*a*long in their color choice from tag*a*long kids!  This giveaway will end on August 31st at 10:00PM Central and an email will be sent to the winner!  The winner will have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen!

I like the raspberry! We are always headed to places like the zoo and grocery store so this would be great!

I'd pick blueberry. And I think I would definitely give this to some people at our church who have large families and could benefit from this. I wish I had had this when my daughter was young!

I'd like the tangerine. This would be great for Target and the grocery store.

Tangerine! This would be great for the grocery store, the mall, and Busch Gardens.

I like the blueberry, and I cannot wait to use mine at the grocery store!

I'd pick raspberry because it'd match my stroller and this would be GREAT for the zoo since they want to be up seeing all the animals!
