It’s that time of the year again. The time when I can barely move, hardly ever want to go outside, and mostly the time when I just want to curl up in a ball and hibernate for at least 3 months. It is WINTER!

That’s a bit dramatic, right! But it’s true.

I am not a winter person. Was born smack middle of winter but still, I don’t appreciate winter at all!

However since becoming a Parent, I have had to adjust my attitude towards winter. I no longer have the get out of jail free card and the freedom to choose to stay in bed all day like I did pre-parenting. Now I have to get out of bed and show up for my daughter. I have to actively be there and keep my 4 year old occupied… or at least try.

Recently we have been loving playing indoors, exploring with our imaginations and just making the small moments count. Then we received a wonderful package with 3 amazing toys from Prima Toys South Africa. It’s almost like the universe was listening to our crazy imaginations while we played. The games in the package were the LOL surprise 60 pieces puzzle, Frozen activity pack, & the Sofia the First my nail studio (watch our review on these games here) and we have been hooked since then.

Today I am partnering with Prima Toys to give one of you a chance to win a Sofia the First nail studio game. This game was an absolute hit with my daughter. It tapped into her creative side and she loved it. It’s very bright and colourful making it easy for little ones to relate to and the instructions on the game are very easy to follow as well. Just a heads up, this game is more on the girly side so it’ll be suitable for little girls however this shouldn’t discourage you from entering the giveaway if you have little boys as I believe it would make a perfect birthday gift as well.

Here’s a few things you need to know before you enter for this giveaway:

  • You need to be living within the boarders of South Africa
