stage and play pricesses + give away!




Long time no see!
I thought it was about time I had another give-away, not just because I have a whole box of Stage and Play Princesses, but also to breath some life into this crusty, neglected old blog!

Stage and Play Princesses is based on my book, Twelve Dancing Princesses, the simplest way to describe it is to say that it's a kind of toy theater, but more toy than anything else.  It's made out of heavy, thick cardboard, and the box has a drawer on the front so that all the pieces can get tucked away when play is done.  

Pretty cool, huh??  I remember having toys sorta like this as a kid, like paper dolls and a cardboard castle, but nothing as nicely made or inviting as this.  My inner child is freaking out over this thing.  

There are a LOT of pieces, including four different back drops, a horse drawn carriage, 15 different princesses, a king and queen, a cat, a tree, a bunny, a chair a dog, a pig, a tea party...tons of stuff!!





OK OK, here's the give away part!


 GIVE AWAY!!! 

The rules: 

  • Leave your e-mail address in a comment to this post.
  • I'll use an random number generator to pick a winner!
  • US residents only please.  Yes I know, but these things are kinda heavy so int'l shipping is not an option...this time around, at least.  International folks, don't worry...I'll have a less hefty giveaway soon.
  • I'll pick a winner on March 29!!
  • Yayayayayayay!

PS: Please don't be alarmed or confused when your comment doesn't appear immediately after you post it.  I have comments moderation turned on, to keep my blog free of robot spam and haters! There's no need to repost, and your comment ought to appear within a few hours. :)




OR, if you're not a risk-taker, you can get a set the old fashioned way: buy it on the internet!

They are available at the Chronicle Books website 







Please notice my dog is in this set.  Yep, that's Lila!




(Cat for scale.) (Also, she just wouldn't go away.)

I want these so bad. I was just thinking about how much I want these for my nieces. Not for myself. No no.

For my daughter's fifth birthday, she had a "Twelve Dancing Princesses" party (but not just any princesses -- just yours). We have the Memory cards. Her dolls are named Daisy and Bluebell. Last night I asked her what things she wanted to do in her life and she said "be in a play." Then today, I find this.

It feels like you're making custom items for my child. Thank you so much! Your work is beautiful.

Hello, just found your work. I love seeing your sketches, thanks for showing some of the process. I put one copy of these in my amazon cart for my niece, but I'd love to win one for my daughter too (dancing + princesses= win/win)
