Gummylump Melissa and Doug Work Bench Review and Giveaway {closed}

Congrats to Deb Stanton #157!  


I often get asked by my IRL (real life) friends what my favorite part of blogging is.  They assume I will say the products that I receive for review.  They couldn't be further from the truth.  Even though product reviews are fun and exciting, what I really love is the relationships that I build with companies.  I really love working with companies that are true to themselves and their customers.  That is one of the reasons I love Gummylump so much!  Their customer service is second-to-none and they carry an amazing array of toys that will delight children of all ages.  Another wonderful aspect of Gummylump.com is the fact that they have the best categories in which to search their site.  You can search by Manufacturer (such as Melissa and Doug), Toy Type (wooden toys) and by character (Dora the Explorer).  I am always impressed by Gummylump and I know you will be too!

I have said it before and I will say it again I LOVE WOODEN TOYS!  That is one of the reasons that I really appreciate Melissa and Doug.  Wooden toys are eco-friendly, durable and they stand the test of time.  Wooden toys are special because they are unique and this Melissa and Doug Workbench is no exception.  I want to note that this amazing toy typically sells for $99.99 but it is now on sale on Gummylump for $79.99 and orders over $50 ship free!  Thats a great deal!  Now on to the fun part.....the review!

What I love so much about this Wooden Workbench is the fact that it closely mimics the real thing.  Dexter played with it and kept making comments about Dada.  "Dada hammer", "Dada screw" (I had a hard time not laughing at that one) and "Dada Dexter work!".  His gears were constantly turning while he was enjoying his new workbench.  I don't have any pictures of Dexter enjoying this beauty because Jason had my camera because he was cleaning my lenses and then I just forgot......bad me!  
One more thing that I love about this workbench is the fact that it comes with wooden tools to play with as well as a working vice grip!  It is sweet and I know your little guy will enjoy this handcrafted delight!

I am beyond excited to tell you that Gummylump would like to offer one lucky DSSM reader the Melissa and Doug Workbench!  Merry Christmas to you (or Happy Chanukah if thats how you roll).  Please head over to Gummylump and tell me another toy that you would love to give for the holidays and who will receive this prize if you were to win!
