If you have ever been to my house, you know there is marker, sharpie, crayon, ink pen and even glitter on my walls. I have no idea why little ones think it’s necessary to draw a mural on a nice clean wall, but for some reason all three of my boys have. I stopped painting over them long ago. I just couldn’t keep up! Thank goodness the makers of BlankZ contacted me to see if I’d be interested in reviewing their toys. Yes!!! Finally something my kids can color on besides my walls. πŸ˜‰

Like usual, the UPS guy comes to the house, rings the bell and Carter grabs the package saying, “Thanks for the toys!” I’m convinced he thinks that one UPS man is the person who keeps giving him things. He even said to me before Christmas, “Why do I need to ask Santa for a toy, the mailman brings them!” But I’m getting sidetracked here.

So back to BlankZ. They are stuffed animals that come completely white. Bare Hare is my favorite.


Carter decided to grab the “No Bully” and got straight to work. Besides getting the markers all over his hands, he did a pretty good job of coloring every last inch of space, including the background card that comes with the animals.


We sent “Bare” the Bear to Kate’s (aka Knitschmidt) daughter and she also did an awesome job of coloring hers in.

After washing the bear it was completely white again. I was a little nervous to wash the animals with our everyday clothes, so I threw them in with a load of towels and no marker transferred over to them. Phew! The hardest part about the whole washing and re-drawing is the waiting! Waiting for your animals to dry can seem like forever in the eyes of an 8 year old!

Now here’s the best part! We are giving a BlankZ animal away! All you have to do is head on over to the BlankZ site and then comment here on which animal your child would love. Simple as that! With seven animals to choose from, your child is sure to be excited picking them out and coloring them in! We will take entries until Β 11:59 pm Mountain Time on January 31st, 2012. For full rules and all the legal jargon, check out our sweepstakes page.

Not a part of the contest, but if you like them on facebook and follow them on twitter, I’d be super appreciative. I truly do love this product and the company is amazing to work with. Let’s all show them some love!

disclosure: I received the BlankZ, free of charge, Β for my review. Thoughts and opinions are mine and honest.Β
