WowWee Fingerlings Baby Unicorn Gigi Giveaway {Two Turtle Doves Giveaway Hop}

If you ask me about the hottest toys of 2017, the first that comes to my mind must be the Fingerlings from WowWee. Besides the many colorful monkeys, the Fingerlings family includes a very special member named Gigi. Gigi is a white baby unicorn with rainbow hair. She's the cutest interactive pet toy that loves to hug your finger and that responds with sound or motion to your sound, motion or touch. Oh, isn't she pretty?


There are so many things Gigi the Fingerlings Baby Unicorn can do and there are so many ways you can play with her. Gigi makes unique unicorn sounds. She can blink her eyes and turn her head left and right. She giggles a lot and she is a pretty spontaneous singer. What she does depends largely on what you do to her. You can pet her on the head, blow her a kiss, brush her mane and tail, hold her upside down or even rock her to sleep. In fact, Gigi is capable of making more than 40 reactions. You just need to play with her to discover all that fun ways she responds to your touch and voice!


Look how adorable Gigi gets when she is asleep! But you need to be gentle and quiet because she is a rather light sleeper. Gigi is a tough girl too. She was accidentally dropped onto hard surfaces several times, but she remained intact and didn't seem to be bothered at all. You would think Gigi appeals more to little girls, but my boys seem to love her no less than the girls during their play date. So Gigi the Fingerlings Baby Unicorn would make an impressive gift for both boys and girls this holiday season.

The Splendid Baron Submarine Blog Tour: Review & Prize Pack Giveaway

Have you ever gone on a real treasure hunt, the kind that requires you to travel to a remote island and search deep into the ocean for a sunken pirate's shipwreck? Are you interested in trying out some of the world's coolest inventions despite the fact that they may sound weird at times? What's the craziest adventure you've ever had? I bet it's nothing like what Waldo Baron, or W.B. as he prefers to be called, has gone through during his summer vacation in The Splendid Baron Submarine, the latest installment in Eric Bower's The Bizarre Baron Inventions series. Learn more about this unique book and enter to win a themed prize pack!

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed reading this book. It was so exciting and entertaining to follow W.B. as he took a fun ride under the sea in a steam-powered submarine or across the desert in a horseless carriage, in the company of not one, but three amusing ghosts visible only to him, for the most part of his journey. The story cleverly combines adventure, science fiction, fantasy, and humor. Each character has their distinct personality traits. Not only are the ghostly figures rather friendly and funny, but even the villains are a significant source of hilarity for the readers.

My favorite things about The Splendid Baron Submarine are the author's incredibly humorous writing style and his wild imaginations, without which such a fascinating story wouldn't be possible. I couldn't help but chuckling throughout the book. It's amazing how many of the funniest parts are told in a calm, serious tone that makes them all the more hilarious. This is the book to pick up if you are looking to relax and have a good laugh. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates fun adventures and a witty sense of humor.

About the Book:

The Splendid Baron Submarine
Written by Eric Bower
Illustrated by Agnieszka Grochalska

Waldo “W.B.” Baron is back with another amazing adventure in another incredible invention! Pirate treasure? A clandestine meeting? A terribly rude monkey with personal boundary and hygiene issues? Two of those things sound like a dream come true to W.B, whose clever inventor parents are hired―by the Vice President!―to go on a super secret and intensely important treasure hunt to repay a national debt. If only it weren’t for that lousy, rude monkey, it would be the beginning of a perfect adventure. But at least it isn’t squirrels…

The treasure hunt gives the Baron family the opportunity to use their exceptional steam-powered submarine, freshly biggened and ready for adventure! But things are seldom straightforward for the eccentric Baron family, and this treasure hunt is no exception. W.B.’s trademark bad luck has him suffering monstrous marine misfortune and marauding monkey misery.

Can the Baron family embark on their newest adventure without the eggy and depressing Aunt Dorcas? Will the Barons find the treasure they seek? Will they save the country from financial ruin? Where does the monkey fit in, anyway? Do we like asking questions? Not really, but inside you’ll meet someone who likes asking questions and then answering them (despite his claims to the contrary, he really does like it).

Oh, did we mention the pirate’s curse?

About The Fall of Lord Drayson

When handsome and arrogant Lord Drayson awakens from a fall with no recollection of who he is or whence he came, the fiery and headstrong Miss Lucy Beresford takes it upon herself to humble him.


Except
He stared at her incredulously, as though she had escaped Bedlam. "Are you in your right mind, woman?"

Lucy leaned forward and planted her palms on his bed so that her eyes were level with his. "My name is Lucy Beresford. I have lived in Askern all my life. I'm the sole daughter of a vicar and a seamstress who lived most happily despite their differences in station. When my father passed away, I came here, to this dower house. So yes, I am in my right mind. It is you who are not."

The earl's jaw clenched, and Lucy took some pleasure at the sight. Perhaps he would come down off his high horse and show at least a small amount of kindness or respect.

"I may not know who I am or where I came from," he finally said, "but at least I do not feel the need to tell tales."

"Tell tales?" Lucy gaped at him. Was he accusing her of telling untruths? Her, of all people?What untruths? How dare he!

Lord Drayson glanced down at his fingers, frowning when he spotted grime under his nails. He began to scrape it out as he spoke. "Claiming to be the daughter of a vicar and seamstress is all very romantic, but it cannot possibly be the truth."

"And why not?" she asked.

His gaze returned to hers. "In my experience, the daughter of a vicar would behave with more decorum, would know how to make a palatable broth, and would never allow herself to be alone in a room with a man who is not her relative. If there is one thing I know with absolute certainty, it is that you are no relation of mine."

Lucy's jaw clenched as she fought to control the rage building inside her. Ever so slowly, she pushed herself up to standing and glared down at the earl. "You are correct in thinking I am no ordinary vicar's daughter. I do not love unconditionally. I show decorum only when I wish to. And I despise those who care for no one but themselves. But I do not tell tales."

He actually chuckled, but it was more of a scoff than a show of humor. "Did you learn those traits from your father?"

"Do not speak of my father."

"I would prefer to speak of myself, but you do not seem to share that preference, so perhaps we should speak of your father instead.Where is he, by the by? I would very much like to meet him."

Lucy's fingers became fists while her conscience became a battleground between all that was good and evil inside her. It was a short battle, with evil making a quick triumph.

Ever so slowly, her body still trembling with anger, she lifted her chin. If he was going to accuse her of telling tales, then tell them she would. "Very well, Collins. If you must know, I am your employer. And though you may not remember me, or this house, or your position in it, or the fact that you are perfectly susceptible to coming off a horse, just like any other human, I still expect some kindness and respect from you."

"What on earth are you talking about? What position?"

There was not a hint of hesitation in her voice when she answered. "You are a servant in this house."
