Three years ago I hosted my very first giveaway on No Time For Flash Cards. It was this Melissa & Doug Stack & Sort Board.It wasn’t sponsored it was just a toy my son was given that we already had, I loved it and decided to send it to a reader instead of trying to return it. A few weeks ago I pulled that same toy out of storage and introduced my daughter to it. It hasn’t made it back into the toy box yet because we play with it every day. I love it because it looks brand new and it’s 4 years old and I am not a stickler for gentle play, I want my kids to explore and learn and that’s not often quiet or gentle.
Melissa & Doug make great classic toys.
Over the years some of our many Melissa & Doug toys have made guest appearances in our posts , which is the main reason I was thrilled when Melissa & Doug asked me to become a Blog Ambassador. We play and learn with Melissa & Doug toys daily so it was easy to stick to my rule that I will only ever work with companies professionally that I would recommend personally.
Also I know you’ll like a giveaway here and there, first look at new products and an insider view at a company who is committed to classic creative play as much as we are.
I am in great company too. Amy from teach mama , Valerie from Inner Child Fun , Stacy from kids*stuff*world and Zina from Lasso The Moon are all ambassadors . Have you ever visited their blogs? If you have you know these women are as passionate about play and learning as I am . This is going to be rad!

What does being an ambassador for a Brand entail? Does that mean first looks at new products? Does it mean some sort of compensation for promoting their products?
All of the above , I am compensated for my work, I do get access to free products and I will be doing some blogging and social media work ( twitter parties, involved in their pinterest) for them as well. The program is in it’s infancy but with a fantastic company and a group of really dedicated bloggers I am very excited and think it’s will be a seamless relationship with No Time For Flash Cards.
