Giggle Junction I Spy Bag Review and Giveaway

My husband and I have been married more than 6 years and have never been on vacation. I don't know how he travels, let alone how my two little girls travel. So when we started planning our recent trip to Disneyland, I got a little nervous and started scouring the web for ideas and products that would help make our trip more enjoyable.

And since I can' be the only person out there, that shudders at the thought of 12 hours cooped up in the car with a 4 year old and a 15 month old, I decided to share my findings with all of you.

The very first product I thought of was an I spy bag from Giggle Junction. I had been admiring their products for some time and was extremely excited when they agreed to sponsor a review and a giveaway for all of you.

An I spy bag is a flannel bag, stitched together and stuffed with hidden objects just waiting to be found. Each bag contains 30 hidden objects and has an attached clue card so kids of all ages can play by themselves.

And Giggle Junction has a huge variety of bags. My four year old is a horse fanatic so I was extremely excited when I saw this.


And my daughter absolutely loved it! My girls loved it so much that we decided to buy another one the same day to avoid any future problems. (In all honesty, the one year old can't play with it yet, so really I bought it for my husband and myself) But just look at it.



The bags are well constructed and the detail work is amazing!



I love how the spy window is incorporated into each design instead of just placed wherever they can fit it in. They are also very compact and easy to tote around.

If you are looking for something smaller, check out the mini bags. They would be the perfect birthday party favors for any little prince or princess.

And one of these I Spy Bags Could be Yours!
