GIVEAWAY: $500 worth of baby products from Red Tricycle NYC

Red_Tricycle_logoYou know how celebrities always go to these fancy events and not only do they walk away with the memory of brushing shoulders with George Clooney and double air kissing Lady Gaga, and perhaps instructions for their publicists to play matchmaker with each other or whatever else goes on, they also get to leave with these amazing SCHWAG BAGS?

As if they aren't already more fabulous than the rest of us and what they really need is a free $500 pair of sunglasses?

Now, imagine that party wasn't attended by Beyonce and Jessica Simpson, but instead it was attended by Blue Ivy and Maxwell Drew. 

What kind of schwag would they get?

The bag of schwag I am about to offer all of you…

Today, to promote the launch of Red Tricycle NYC, I am giving away a GREAT BIG BAG 'O BABY SCHWAG worth over $500 to one lucky reader.

In addition to a Red Tricycle kid's t-shirt, this bag includes G cloth disposable diapers, a Wee-Knees yoga mat, a Summer SwaddleMe infant wrap, a ba Baby Bottle Holder, a Kalencom diaper bag, a New York Baby! book, Itzy Ritzy lunch bags, a Zoli Straw Sippy Cup, Lula Clips, a Blumm box, a Plum Organics sampler box and so many more items that I'm not gonna list them all here for fear of boring you all to tears.

(Personally, I am most excited about the Lula Clips which work to clip back stroller and carseat straps so you can more easily get your kids inside. Why didn't I know about this two years ago???)

Red Tricycle is a digital city guide for parents (already very popular in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and LA) that just launched in NYC. It offers five local picks each week of new things to do, see and eat with your kids.

Which is a good thing because even in Manhattan, a city that pretty much has EVERYTHING, I still have no idea what to do with my two-year-old most of the time. For instance, I'm guessing Red Tricycle doesn't suggest taking your kid to PC Richards for entertainment, but that's where I found myself on one particularly desperate day.  

Ny_bannerIn addition to the $500 schwag bag, which is being offered exclusively to my readers (see entry rules at the bottom of the post), Red Tricycle NYC is having a huge giveaway on their facebook page with $5000 worth of prizes to some of the best kid offerings in New York City.

If you "like" them before June 7th, you will have the opportunity to win:

1. $350 Gift Card to Michael Kormos Photography  
2. 15 kids Yoga Classes from Karma Kids Yoga
3. $250 Giggle Gift Card 
4. Tasting Dinner Menu for 2 at Eleven Madison Park
5. 3-Month Summer Membership to Citibabes 
6. Brooklyn Childrens Museum Globetrotter Membership 
7. Annual Membership to Sittercity
8. 1 Semester of Classes at Kidville
9. VIP Concierge Pink Olive Membership & $300 Gift Card

So basically, I'm talking about so much schwag, it's got no chance of fitting in the bag.
