something kinda different Maypole Carousel giveaway


I’ve mentioned my parents’ new woodworking/crafty company a few times I think, so I am excited to have them back for another giveaway! This time they are giving away a wooden Maypole carousel-the original set (with horses) and an add-on Easter module, complete with adorable bunnies and eggs. (which can be painted different colors as well, or left plain….just let them know!)

My girls LOVE spinning these around-so do all the other kiddos who come over when we host play dates and such. There’s something nice and calming about watching it spin around. 😉 They have a video on their site that shows how it works.

They also have some other adorable modules (they’re super easy to switch out for different holidays)…Christmas, and circus animals. (which would be adorable in a little boy’s nursery!)

 Also, they’ve added wooden scissors to their shop, so if you were hankering after my set of shears, you can now get yourself a pair! Sah weet.

  1. I love the circus animals! My thing is giraffes, don’t know why! I love it, so cute and fun!


  2. I think you meant product not fabric right?

    In any case love the animals!

  3. I love the zoo animals! Thanks for the chance to win one.

  4. Definitely the maypole carousel.


  5. Oh my daughter would LOVE this… and it’s just beautiful! The Suzuki Method information was interesting as well. I see your eldest in some of the pictures, how old was she when she started? My daughter is 2 and my mom recommended the violin to start as an instrument. My niece plays violin but started directly on an instrument.

  6. I HEART those wooden scissors! They just make me so happy! And how cool would one of those wood pens be?!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I think my favorite is the Christmas set, as I adore the holiday, but if were forced to not pick that one I’d go with the circus animals :)

  9. I liked them on facebook, and shared them on Pinterest as well.

  10. I love the Circus Animal set, so sweet! thanks!

  20. Wow, that’s really cool. Love the carousel, and love that you can change the animals seasonally. Circus animals really cute! The wool advent calendar is also beautiful, some real talent in this family! Elisa,

  21. I love the maypole, scissors, and advent calendar. Your dad is very talented! You must be related. LOL. You know my email address.

  22. I love maypoles! I can’t believe they came up with one that you can swap out the pieces for different holidays – amazing!

    Love love love the carousels!!! Also love the “Better than a box violin!

  26. I like the maypole, advent calendar and violin. I did the Suzuki method and started on a box, but the wooden violin looks so much more realistic!

  27. I like their facebook page.

  28. The maypoles are so cute, my girls would love them! What a great shop your parents have, I love the scissors, too.

  30. The maypole is adorable! And I think the Suzuki method violin is hilarious (and awesome). I started playing cello with the Suzuki method, but I guess I was old enough to skip straight to the instrument since I didn’t know about the box technique. Ooh, it would be neat if your parents also made a better-than-a-box cello! 😀

  31. I love love LOVE the maypole with the horses! My daughter would play would that for hours!
