August Giveaway: Wingflyer

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

UPDATE: Winner is Cecilia Tineo!! Congratulations!

In August, a SouthernMamas.com reader will win a brand new Wingflyer, a new category of outdoor activity for kids and families.

Faster than a scooter, more portable than a bike, WingFlyer reportedly creates the smooth sensation of “flying at ground level.” This new product looks to be an effective and fun cardiovascular workout. The Wingflyer is billed as “plexercise” – exercise disguised as play.

To enter to win, “like” the WingFlyer Facebook page by clicking here. Then answer this question on the Wingflyer Wall, share a tip (or a trick) on how you get your child (or children) to exercise. Please say that SouthernMamas.com sent you! Not into Facebook? Then you can enter to win by answering the above question below this post (Click on comments). Deadline to enter noon Aug. 31, 2011. We’ll pick a winner at the end of the month and announce it here.

Congratulations to Caroline Pace Edwards of Savannah who won last month’s SouthernMamas.com giveaway: a Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag from sara jane children’s boutique in Savannah!
