We’ve been talking a lot about travel here at Mamma Mia, but I’d never give up the chance to share a new children’s book!
You might be familiar with a character named Captain Underpants? Of course! If you are a parent today, I’m sure you’ve heard of this guy. Dav Pilkey, author of Captain Underpants has a new series and I’m thrilled to be able to giveaway a four-pack – Ricky Ricotta.
New Series from Dav Pilkey
Little known fact, author Dav Pilkey suffered from ADHD as a child and through his struggles developed characters like Captain Underpants! What an amazing story of overcoming a challenge. This series is illustrated by Dan Santat.
Ricky Ricotta is a little mouse with BIG problems. Every day he is picked on by the neighborhood bullies. He lives in Squeakyville with his mother and father, and being an only mouse, he is often lonely. That is until something big happens. A giant flying robot enters Ricky’s life and an unlikely friendship is born! Together, Ricky and his Robot must save the planet from a galaxy bursting with bad guys.

Win 4-Pack of Travel Guide Books!
The DK travel guide covers are recognizable to just about everyone. Hard to believe that DK’s Eyewitness Travel guides have been around for 20 years. This summer, guides to iconic destinations like Italy, Ireland, London, Paris, and New York City received a makeover.
As many of you know we embarked on a journey to Paris and London a few months back. We pulled from multiple resources for our trip, but this new revamped London guide is definitely a perfect one stop shop for your London travel. Mia had a great time perusing the book reminiscing about our London trip.
I love to give away books on Mamma Mia, but especially travel related books! I’m excited to give away a 4-pack from DK including the new London,Paris, Italy and New York City guide books. Perfect for planning a trip or just dreaming about one! The pack is valued at $100.

Charli (3) is obsessed with building puzzles and any type of blocks she can get her hands on. I think I have an engineer on my hands! The Mega Bloks Barbie™ Luxe Camper is right up her alley because it combines another love… Barbie. Geared to kids ages 4-10, but she and I worked on it as a team.
MEGA BLOKS BARBIE™ BUILD ‘N PLAY LUXE CAMPER
The sparkling holiday cruiser includes bunk beds, make-up area and front seats. Outside of the camper there is a firepit, hot tub and picnic area. I’m not gonna lie, I was pretty jealous of Barbie and her friends once we completed the camper.
I’m really excited to be able to give one away!

I haven’t done a giveaway in awhile, but I’m pretty stoked to be able to giveaway three copies of the new Sofia The First:Songs from Enchancia music CD. You all know we are Disney fans… Kind of a given living where we live.
Sofia The First: Songs From Enchancia
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love this recently released Disney Jr. series. Even my older daughter and nephew beg to watch this show. I love that Sofia is part of a blended family (like our own). In my opinion, this show does an excellent job of teaching children how to be kind and accepting of others. Project Runway fans will become attached to Baileywick… Tim Gunn is the voice behind this loveable character.
The album includes tracks such as “Good Little Witch” and “Ride of our Lives,” plus 4 instrumental karaoke tracks. Oh yes, we love some karaoke.
How To Win:
- Leave a comment below letting me know your fave character from the show.
- Follow me on Twitter and leave a comment letting me know you did. I swear you’ll love my tweets!
- Tweet about this contest with the following tweet: Win a #SofiaTheFirst CD from @amandamkeefer & @disneymusic www.themammamiablog.com
This giveaway is for US residents. I will select and notify winners on 2/14. For more information on Walt Disney Records’ releases, please visit Disney.com/music, become a fan at Facebook.com/disneymusic or follow at Twitter.com/disneymusic.

I’m not a huge country music fan, but the new music CD Frog Trouble had my girls dancing around their playroom, smiling and laughing uncontrollably…. Therefore, I was sold. It’s nice every now and then to shut off the TV and just listen to some fun music. Big names like Brad Paisley, Josh Turner, Darius Rucker and Dwight Yoakam come together to create this fun tune compilation, Frog Trouble. Don’t take my word for it. Watch the clip.
Grammy nominated and bestselling children’s author, songwriter and music producer, Sandra Boynton, is the mastermind behind Frog Trouble. Boynton produced the tracks mostly in Nashville, with renowned session musicians and an All-Star roster.
I am so excited to have 3 copies of Frog Trouble to give away!
How to Win
1.) Leave a comment below letting me know your favorite children’s song.
2.) Tweet about the giveaway and leave a comment letting me know you did so.

I don’t do many product giveaways, but I came across Pinypon dolls this holiday season and couldn’t resist. They are cute, age appropriate, colorful, interchangeable, collectible and best of all affordable.
I love the fact that these dolls employ imagination with their interchangeable outfits, accessories, hairstyles and even faces. My girls were excited to create their own special friends. The more dolls, the more characters girls can create. Pinypon dolls are recommended for ages 3 and up and they are, again, totally affordable starting at $2.99.
Here in Orlando, you can pick them up at Wal-mart. Or, you can win them by entering my giveaway! I’m giving away exactly what you see in the photo here. It’s four dolls and two pets. (A girl can’t be without her pet.)
