gaddy nipper crayons {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Nicole-Lynn!}

As Big Sister E's birthday has arrived quicker than it seems possible, a few thoughts keep running through my mind. First, how in the world did my baby turn four? Four! I can't fool myself into believing she's a toddler at all anymore, four is a full-blown kid. Second, if all of the work I've put into planning for her birthday party is finally going to be put into action... that means that I can finally rest for a little while.

And, by a little while, I really only mean a little while. Because in two short months, Little Sister B will be two and don't even get me started on the fact that two years can't possibly have passed since the day she was born. It's really not possible at all.

Fortunately, I'm a little less stressed on planning her birthday party because I already know it's going to be a hit with all of our friends. How could they not be excited to show up to a party now that gaddy nipper crayons has sent these guys to help celebrate?

Providing fun, custom, recycled crayons for all ages since 2008, gaddy nipper crayons creates the cutest, most unique crayons for any and every occasion. By taking only high quality Crayola Crayons and recycling them into a huge array of shapes, sizes and colors, your next birthday, graduation, anniversary, holiday, shower and more can have the added enjoyment that gaddy nipper crayons can bring.

As Little Sister B is a huge Elmo fan, the plans are already in motion for some great Elmo touches to make her second birthday party entertaining for everyone involved. As soon as I saw the Elmo Crayons from gaddy nipper crayons, I knew that they would be the perfect addition to the goody bags for all of my daughters' friends that will come to the party.

Arriving sweetly wrapped and tied with ribbon (and solidly packed in a box so that there wasn't even the slightest chip or crack), these cute Elmos were crying out for creativity from the moment that we pulled them out.

Measuring 3.5" by 2.25", the Elmo Crayons from gaddy nipper crayons are just the right size for small hands to easily grip and grab them. I wondered if they would be broken as soon as my daughters began coloring with them, but decided to hand them over and see what happened.

What I found was that the Elmos held up great! As each one was thick and strong and created out of six traditional crayons, they were able to provide hours of inspiration to color away until my girls' hearts were content. How could they want to stop and put down Elmo? And with no annoying paper labels to tear off or get in the way, I was able to sit back and let them be their own little artists.

I love that gaddy nipper crayons offers individual packaging for crayons so that the Elmos, ladybugs, Legos or whatever style you choose can come perfectly wrapped and ready to be placed in a goody bag or make a perfect party favor. With so many adorable styles, colors, high quality results and even the option of free personalized labels, these crayons would make a unique addition to events for both adults and children.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will get to stock up on adorable custom crayons from gaddy nipper crayons, because...

One lucky person will win a $15 gift certificate to gaddy nipper crayons!

What a decision to make. The trains or Elmo. My granddaughter loves any of them but trains and also Elmo are two of her favorites. Grandsons would like Starwars. Definitely bookmarked her site for Christmas.

How cute! I went to their site and would love to win these Surfs Up Crayons! I'd choose them if I won! They would be great for the kids to color with at our wedding! I'm making little coloring books for them and these would be so cute for them to have at our beach wedding! :)http://www.etsy.com/listing/56462769/surfs-up-crayon-party-pack-for-12
