A GIVEAWAY That Takes Me Back to My Childhood- Damhorst Toys

Way back in the day, when I was the teensiest little pipsqueak, my parents got me two Damhorst step stools that doubled as PUZZLES. 

Absolute love at first sight. The colors- eye candy, the utility and plain old fun- a lil' bit of heaven to my kiddo heart. 

And this week, you get a shot at scoring one, too!
My first Damhorst Puzzle Stool- from way back in the day- still standin' strong!
Whether I was trying to reach the sink to wash my hands, grab a toy from a shelf in my closet, take a load off to sit and rest, or if I just wanted to challenge myself to a little puzzlin', these stools came in handy time and time again.

So much so...that I could never bear to get rid of them! 

Even when I was a teenager, when my bedroom walls were covered in Bob Marley posters and I'd long since tossed anything I thought was uncool, my friends can attest that my crafty stools were set up in my little make-up station, still kickin' it. 

And now, with wee ones of my own, these Damhorst Puzzle Stools are totally back in action. My girls are just as enamored as I was. And what's not to love? Having stood solid and strong for over THIRTY years of use... 

BaZANG!

As if the quality of craftsmanship and brilliant multifunctional concept isn't enough to applaud—Damhorst Toys has been family-owned for the last 42 years, and they make everything in their sweet little shop in Hermann, Missouri.

The story of how the Damhorst business began makes my heart so incredibly happy. Check it out here. Good people. Loving parents. Great, educational ideas. Incredible results. Right up my alley, friends!

I cannot rave enough...
But now you have a chance to see for yourselves!
