The Wishing Elephant Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentors #78: Paula Hafner


Where to start with this one???  If you have a baby, toddler, or know a baby or toddler (and if you’re reading this site, then you probably do!)  then you will want to check out this shop!

Carolyn runs The Wishing Elephant on etsy with the most adorable handmade shirt designs.  In her own words she’s creating, “fun, funky and super fresh clothes for new age babies and toddlers”.

PandaEach shirt (or onesie for the littles) is appliqued with eco felt – 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles.  And did I mention handmade?  So you’ve got a totally unique product made with love!

She sent me this Hiding Panda onesie for my little guy – it’s perfect because we call him the Sad Panda and I have had a hard time finding clothing to match his nickname!  Sizing is listed with height and weight so do go by that.  My son is not quite 4 months old and he fits into the 6-9 month size by height and weight.  The onesies are Carter’s brand.

After washing and wearing a couple times I’m impressed.  The appliques stay on well (although they are recommended to be washed inside out) and the color didn’t bleed out at all.

Carolyn also carries shirts in sets for twins or more like this awesome One Up series from Mario Brothers!  You just have to check out all the cute designs for yourself!

IMario would highly recommend this shop!  The clothing is so fun and high quality and the customer service is over the top!  Carolyn sends a thank you card with each order and each shirt has a cute tag pinned on with care instructions.  They also come wrapped in tissue paper (you can request pink or blue) perfect for your next baby shower!  And the prices are unbeatable!
