CLOSED: May Safe Fun in the Sun Giveaway with Gift Hero!

Baby Banz and Gift Hero May Giveaway!, one of the coolest gifting sites for kids on the web, is teaming up with Baby Banz for a fun summer giveaway!

"Safe Fun in the Sun"

The winner receives an outdoor Ring Toss game from  AND Sunglasses and Sun Hat from Baby Banz!
As studies reveal the damaging effects of UV damage, we must not overlook the need to also preserve children’s sensitive skin and eyes.  Get your child a pair of sunglasses from the industry’s leader in all aspects of sun protection for children 10 and under.  Famous for their unique, wraparound sunglasses with the neoprene band, Baby Banz assure a comfortable, snug fit for those delicate noggins, leaving out the dangers of having sunglass arms snapping off or poking someone in the eye!

Baby Banz were originally designed in Australia for one of the world’s toughest UV environments. Clinically tested by one of the world’s leading authorities on sunglasses, Baby Banz have passed the most stringent standards on sunglasses in the world! A testament to their outstanding quality, Baby Banz has been endorsed by the Melanoma International Foundation, Vision Australia, InfantSEE and the Cancer Society of Australia. In addition, Baby Banz has been recognized by iParenting Media, the Toy Man, Creative Child Magazine, The New Parents Guide and hordes of other media outlets as the Ultimate in Children's Sun Protection. Get your child the protection they need for their eyes, without sacrificing an ounce of comfort or style.

As the mothers of 3 young children, Lisa Fielding & Stefanie Katz-Rothman have attended more birthday parties than they can count. After spending too much time staring at the overwhelming, yet unsatisfying selection of toys in their local stores and at big online retailers trying to find that perfect gift…a gift we felt good about giving and the birthday child (and her mom) would love. They felt there had to be a better, easier, more convenient way.

Lisa and Stefanie started GIFT HERO to change the way parents buy gifts for birthday parties. They have found what they hope are the best toys for the age and gender of the child and the amount you want to spend. They (and their kids and their friends) have tested all of the toys they sell -- and they don’t offer anything they wouldn’t be thrilled for their own children to receive. They have created the Gift Finder to help you quickly find your gift. And, they have designed a fun and easy gift bag to “wrap” your gift and bring it to the party.

These moms also feel very strongly about giving back and creating opportunities to teach children the value and importance of charity.  They want their children to realize how lucky they are and also want every child to feel as fortunate as theirs do. So, part of GIFT HERO is an opportunity to give back. GIFT HERO works with children’s charities to provide gifts to children whose families can’t afford them.

A note from Shari, Baby Banz Operations Manager: My then 1and1/2 year old, General III,  loved getting a present we ordered him from Gift Hero last July, which is why I am so excited to be able to share this company with you! The Bug Bonz he got came inside the cool blue Gift Hero bag straight out of the box - so opening the gift was as much fun as playing with it later.

Don't forget that while playing outside this summer, it's important to cover up and stay sun-safe! Sunscreen is not enough, so I encourage you to invest in a good UPF 50+ swimsuit, sun hat and sunglasses for each of the children in your lives!
