KINDER Canada: Barbie and Hot Wheels Giveaway

Kinder Egg  Barbie and Hot Wheel ToysJust after Christmas while at Walmart they first caught my eye by the checkout, Kinder Canada had Barbie and Hot Wheels packs: two favorite childhood brands had partnered with my favorite chocolate covered eggs.

They say boys will be boys and girls will be girls but in our house we have always presented and played with toys meant for either gender. When my teen was younger she loved and adored both. Many an hour where spent with these two childhood icons. So when my perks box from being a Kinder Mom arrived from Kinder Canada this week, and it had a box of Hot Wheels, and box of Barbie Kinder Eggs it brought back many a memory from childhood.

Yes my daughter even had cars and tracks in her toy box. But the reality is who hasn’t played with both a Hot Wheel car and a Barbie? I know many a child who have enjoyed both. Having owned a daycare for many years boys sometimes do play with barbies and girls have been known to love a good race car.

Now to let you know 1 in 3 Kinder Eggs, that is sold as a Hot Wheels, or Barbie Egg has a Barbie or Hot Wheels themed toy inside. We bought 2 packs of 3 eggs and got a Barbie and Hot Wheels toy in each as well as 2 other of the 2013 Kinder toys.

By visiting the Kinder Canada Fan Page you can vote on your favorite toy and Kinder Canada even has a great giveaway.  Starting, January 10th, that is today, they are giving away 40 Barbie and Hot Wheels Prize Packs as well as a pack of 24 Kinder Surprise Eggs! For the next four weeks, you can participate in the KINDER Barbie Hot Wheels giveaway by simply becoming a fan of Kinder Canada, now do be sure to follow any special instructions they give.

Which one would excite the kids in your house? Barbie or Hot Wheels?

Hope you join in on the fun.

I am excited to share some news, today at noon KINDER® Canada will be giving away 7,500 coupons to enjoy their delicious Kinder® Mini Eggs, for free! This giveaway will begin TODAY, November 26th, and will last for 10 weekdays. KINDER® Canada will be giving out 750 coupons each day at 12pm EST. This is exclusive for KINDER®’s Facebook community as it  is celebrating KINDER®’s ‘A Joy To Share’ program in support of Children’s Miracle Network of Canada!

Being a Kinder mom meant getting another box of goodies last week. This time all were perfect for stocking stuffers. So none have been eaten. My teen still loves her Kinder, and I have several small neices who are just Kinder loving age. Guess what will be in their stockings ? For me I love the Kinder Mini Egg with it’s hazelnut filling (if you have allergies please be aware the Mini Eggs do have nuts).

Now today is the beginning of a very special campaign as Kinder Canada supports the the Children’s Miracle Network with its Joy to Share campaign. Watch the Martin Family story on the Kinder Canada Facebook Page and “share” it with your friends and family! For every share of the video, Kinder Canada will donate $1 to the Children’s Miracle Network, up to $5,000. Kinder truly is giving back this holiday season.

For us as a family it is important to be giving back and I am so glad that Kinder Canada found a great way to do it as well. For us we are giving back by raising funds for the local food bank, and we will give a toy or two to Toy Mountain as well, the other thing we always do this season is go through our closet and donate the things we no longer need or wear.

How are you giving back?

Now don’t forget at NOON you can get your coupon for free mini eggs and watch the video, what a great way to great a yummy treat and give back as well.

One of my favorite brands, Kinder comes out with a wonderful new Facebook application called Kinder Moments. If you have a holiday photo or really any fun funky photo you want framed you can simply upload it and voila within moments you have a beautiful framed photo to share.

I have already gone and played with the application. My daughter loved to tree climb and we had a perfect weekend for it awhile back and enjoyed our day in High Park so I had to capture that moment in a frame.It was a day of laughter and joy, that I was able to capture and now it is a framed moment that will be around for a very long time.


I love that we can add frames to those special moments of our lives, what a great way to remember and stay in the moment.


Have you liked Kinder on Facebook?  Look on the left side of the page is a tab labeled My Kinder Moments; this is where you can frame your Kinder Moments.  And this month there is a prize!! Think the framed memory and a prize, I think that is awesome.

Right now, when you load a picture this month, you will be entered to win $500 gift card to treat yourself to a new Fall Wardrobe.

I have loved working with Kinder these last 3 months, and if you know us Kinder and Kinder Eggs  have been a will always be part of our lives. Thanks Kinder for another great way to capture the simple moments that bring us pleasure.

I am a Kinder Mom and I Have Some News For You!

I was very happy this week when I got chosen to be a #KinderMoM. You see we have loved Kinder Eggs in this house for a very long time.

You see Kinder Eggs got me through potty training, stocking stuffing, many an egg hunt, and treat time since my daughter was a little girl. We both love Kinder eggs. Kinder eggs are a frugal treat when you are looking to put a smile on your child’s face. I know many a time that has been the reaction from my girl.

Kinder Eggs are perfection, it’s two treats in one! (and NUT FREE). It being nut free is a very good thing. I have many a friend with children with nut allergies so am glad I don’t have to worry if giving Kinder eggs as a gift.

First, there is the yummy Kinder chocolate outer shell, then a toy to put together. My daughter only wishes the shell was a bit thicker so she could have more of that yummy chocolate.  We have often sat at the table for an hour putting together the toys. The harder it is, the happier she is, she thinks of them like a puzzle and well she loves the assembly part.

There is other news to share as well:  Kinder Canada is now on Facebook, and in celebration of their re-launch, they’re giving away 5000 Free Kinder Egg Coupons.  Now, they haven’t started giving them away yet, but do mark it on your calendar for August 29th.  Keep an eye on the  facebook account, cause they’re going to go really fast after all who doesn’t love Kinder Eggs?
