Giveaway from Emmie's Designs! (this giveaway is now closed)

I have a fun giveaway for you today! Emmie's Designs sent me one of their "I Spy" games to try out and we LOVE it. This is my 4 year old daughter below playing with it and she got so excited everytime she found an item.


The "I Spy" bags are not only very cute, but they also have the items to find in words and pictures. I have been thinking of how perfect this would be for so many things. Let me just list a few of my ideas for you:

Long Car Ride

Airplane Ride

Adoptive parents traveling to bring home a child (great toy to pack and if there is a language barrier this has pictures)

Child in the hospital

Wait at Dr's Offices

This would be the perfect toy to put in shoeboxes at Christmas for those that do boxes for children.

I could go on and on but you get the picture. Did I mention these are fun for adults too?

Let's find out about Emmie's Designs:
When did you open your Etsy shop? I started selling in December 2009


Can you explain how the I Spy bags work? An I Spy Bag is your classic ‘eye spy with my little eye’ game. It’s a pouch filled with rice and several different trinkets. It comes with two laminated cards. One has a list of the items found within the bag for your older children who can read and the other has pictures of all of the items for those not reading yet. As the bag is moved about, the trinkets will appear within the rice which you’ll see through the clear vinyl window. This allows your child to find each one of the trinkets and provides hours of fun for anyone. Adults love them too! Do you take custom orders? I do. If someone sees a fabric that they love but not in the product they want they can request that one be made.


What's your favorite item in your shop? My favorite and bestseller is the I Spy Bag. It’s what inspired me to start my business. I wanted to find something for my kids to play with when we went to church and on long car rides to keep them entertained for long periods of time and also to be quiet when needed. I had seen some different versions of the bag but couldn't seem to find what I wanted in the stores so I decided to make my own. I received several compliments on them and everyone wanted to know where to find them and so Emmie’s Designs was born.
