Holiday 2010 Giveaway: TagsMania Plush Tag Toys [CLOSED]

Many parents know: If you give a baby a stuffed toy, chances are they’ll play with the tag. TagsMania decided to monopolize on this idea and make a website that has very unique tag toys for babies and toddlers. Recently, Tagsmania sent us a TagBall and TagsDale to try out.

The TagBall is just as it sounds; a ball of ribbon tags. We received the primary colored ball, but they also have several other color combinations of colors to suit every taste. The TagBall features a handy Velcro strap that can be hooked to car seats, strollers, shopping carts, etc. or even baby’s wrist. It would also make a great and beautiful alternative to paper, throw away bows that come on gifts. The baby I watched really, really loved the TagBall, but I can honestly say that all the kids have been seen playing with it. For parents of small children, this is a great toy with endless possibilities. The National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) even took notice of the TagBall and it won an award in 2010.

The TagsDale is a cute plush horse that has ribbon tags for the mane, tail and feet and is super soft and huggable. This adorable Clydesdale of tags is brown with a white face and feet. Kids of all ages were drawn to this cute horse and all wanted a turn playing with him. I was impressed with his quality and how absolutely soft he was.

In addition to the TagBall, which retails for $11.99, and the TagsDale, which retails for $14.99, they have the Tagasaurus, Tagacuda, and TagRattle. You can see all these items and learn more about TagsMania on their site For a limited time, you can receive Free Shipping on continental U.S. orders over $75.
