If your wee ones are anything like mine, I imagine that shopping is usually met with fierce resistance.
77kids and The Motherhood invited a group of mommy bloggers to the new Raleigh store at Crabtree Valley Mall, not only to check the store out but to also help promote a new charity drive to raise money for WakeMed Children’s Hospital (just by playing on the computer and making snowflakes I might add).
Before I get to snowflake making, you really have to see little about the store AND the clothes because both are seriously cool.
Most kids stores I’ve been to are no different than grown-up stores. Sometimes you’ll get a TV to keep the kids occupied if you’re lucky. That’s not how 77kids rolls.
The store itself is a cool kid’s paradise. They can walk up to the large flat panel screens to scratch records and get their picture taken. Not only that, they can draw on their picture just by using their fingers. There are bean bags to lounge on, images on the floor that move when you jump on them and a mirror thing that Little Roo couldn’t get enough of.
77kids thought of everything when it comes to making your shopping experience easier. For example, the dressing rooms have wooden windows the kids can open to talk to you or pass a different size through. Genius! They also have restrooms, which any mother of a preschooler can appreciate.
There’s a chalkboard in the check-out line and a prize stand too!
As for their clothes, they are hip, SUPER soft and FUN! They also guarantee their clothes through 77 times in the wash or get your money back.
The Magic Window Your Kids Will Never Want to Leave
Like I said, 77kids knows details. On the outside of the store, the kids can race two birdies in a downhill ski race. Just push a button and watch them go! Prying kids away from it is another story.
If you live in Raleigh (or anywhere near Raleigh), you have to make it to Crabtree Valley Mall to visit 77kids. (If you aren’t near one of their seven locations, you can still enjoy their stylin’ clothes by shopping online.)
Show Your Kids What Holiday Giving Is All About
77kids launched their Wish4Snow campaign to raise money for nine children’s hospitals, including Raleigh’s WakeMed Children’s Hospital.
In stores you can donate 77 cents (or more!) and receive a “you done good” bumper sticker.
Online head on over to the Wish-4-Snow site at 77kids and design your own snowflake. You can even play a fun “catch the snowflake” game.
The goal? To make a total of 100,000 snowflakes! If that happens, 77kids will make an additional $25,000 donation to the children’s hospitals on top of the customer donations each store collects during the month!
You can make as many snowflakes as you want – not just one! It’s the perfect opportunity to teach kids about the spirit of giving this holiday season.
Plus, creating a snowflake makes you eligible to win a $77 gift card from 77kids (one gift card given away daily) and
enters you to win the ultimate grand prize: an awesome block party for you and 77 pals!
The Awesomeness Continues
Stop back by tomorrow for a 77 Kids $50 gift card giveaway! In the meantime, go make yo-self a snowflake and be sure to share it with friends for a good cause.
