I don't know about your kids, but my kids love seeing their names on random things such as note pads or magnets. The problem is, believe it or not, is that I have NEVER seen Carter on any of those items and Evan has been on one item, stickers, that I scooped up when I saw them. I always look when I'm at stores, not because we really need any more of that stuff, but I guess I may be still a little bitter that my name WAS NEVER ON anything - thanks mom for being creative and spelling it differently - sheesh ;-)! But anyway, so when the crew at Chuggington asked specifically how to spell the boys' names for a special surprise, I couldn't wait to see what they had up their sleeves.
Evan and Carter are constantly fighting over items that they think are theirs. So when I received our special surprise in the mail, I didn't show the kids right away. I strategically sat the items on the table outside where we were playing just to see if they would notice.
Evan's reaction was priceless. When he first saw the items, he thought they were pretty cool. But after a moment of looking at them, he realized his name was on one and Carter's name was on the other. A huge squeal and giggle came out of his mouth. You know, the kind that just bubbles up from within and oh so natural with pure delight.
What are these items you ask?
I was pretty excited about these also. Because when summer time hits, we are constantly on the go. And I try to keep the boys fueled up while we are out with snacks brought from home. I have a pair of water bottles that I use constantly and having to keep tabs on them and keep them washed is such a hassle. So I love that I have these Chuggington Water Bottles to add to my repertoire! And they love them because their names are on them. Carter keeps saying "this one starts with C and it's Carter's not Evan's. Mine!" Too cute!
What a great idea! And these aren't the flimsy plastic ones that can bend and pop open. These are the nice sturdy aluminum sports bottles that can attach to a bag or belt.
Ty's Toy Box is now offering several Chuggington items with FREE personalization! Besides the sports bottles, they also offer t-shirts, backpacks, hats and more for your little chugger.
