NOW CLOSED: Ultimate Blog Party & a PJ Sparkles Giveaway

5 Minutes for Mom’s is having an Ultimate Blog Party this week. If you are stopping by from the Blog Party, my name is Briana and I’ve been writing about the Bargains since July 2008 (sine Bargains don’t find themselves!)

For those new here, I live in Indiana with my husband and four children ages 10, 8, 4, and 2. I work full time and work on my blog part time in the evenings! You can read more than you want to know at about me.

I also review products on my review blog called “Buzz…by Bargain Briana.” I offer my solicted and unsolicited opinion on a variety of products. Which is what brings me to this exciting giveaway to thank you for stopping by….

31y3CMiCtHL. SL160  NOW CLOSED: Ultimate Blog Party & a PJ Sparkles GiveawayOne lucky reader will be win a P.J. Sparkles doll from Zizzle for themselves and one for a friend.

What is P.J. Sparkles? P.J. Sparkles first came out in the 80s while I was busy playing My Little Pony.  Princess PJ lives in Twinkle Town with her Sparkle Friends – Dazzle, Sparks, Flare, and Glowee.

I am loving these dolls because they are cute, portable, and my almost 3 year old daughter is loving her sparkles dolls! Her heart even lights up -  the doll’s heart that is!  She loves playing with dolls (as well as trucks!) and it is so fun to listen to her little conversations with her dolls.

One thing different than the P.J. Sparkles of the past – is P.J. Sparkles is high tech now. She has a website where you play games, paint, read stories, and watch videos!

    The new pj sparkles doll are small enough to fit into a purse or backpack but big enough they can dress them without adult help.
    They are a refreshing alternative to all the Bratz etc.

    I checked out the website and it’s so cute. I had never heard of these dolls until recently, but honestly my favorite thing about them is when we happen to see a commercial and my almost 3 year old just get that look of awe on her face and says “Mommy! Loooooook at thaaaaaat!” Makes me just want to run out and buy it for her. But winning it would be even better! :o)

    I am giving away my first EVER BLOG PRIZE.
    I have a gift basket business and it is the most requested gift over the last 15 years.
    From the comments I have already received, it appears to be something a little different and something anyone could use.
    I have been so touched by the comments that I have decided to give 2 boxes . They will be the $100 deluxe size. I really do want to bless people!!! I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be Saturday!
