Review and giveaway (closed): Lil' Teammates

Congrats to my winners: Sarah Osborne; jakiesmom and AmberFaith
My son, Ethan, is almost four years old now.  And already he is one of the most gigantic sports fans that I have already met.  His father and I know better than to try to go past a sports broadcast on TV and not stop- you name the sport, Ethan is desperate to watch it! This kid doesn't know his numbers or colors yet, but he can identify sports and talk about them and pretend to play them in our living room. I see lots of expensive sports participation in our future!

All to say, when I saw a mention of Lil' Teammates on a message board that I frequent, I immediately stopped what I was doing and emailed the company to ask to be able to do a review. Fortunately for me (and for Ethan), they happily agreed, and soon this was the sight in my living room:
Lil' Teammates are pretty much the cutest sports product that I've ever seen. Check out this adorable NHL player:
And this Seattle Mariner:
Right now you can get characters that represent most NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and Collegiate teams. And if your team isn't represented yet- stay tuned, more teams will be arriving soon! You can see a full list of availability here. The Lil' Teammates represent teams, not individual players. For each team, you can get characters that represent several different playing positions, with more to be available in the future.

To say that Ethan loves these may be the understatement of the year. He's been having a blast. I like that they're nice and solid, so I don't have to worry about Ethan breaking the figures or injuring himself while he's pretending to play sports with them.  These figures are collectible (and officially licensed by the leagues and colleges), but they are designed to be played with by kids.  I also like that they look cute on his display shelf when they're not in play!

I believe they were getting ready to crash in this photo. He's got the idea of hockey down- lots of crashing and skating!

Showing me his favorite figure

If there is a young (or perhaps not-so-young) sports fan in your life, I highly recommend you check out Lil' Teammates. These are such a cute, fun (and low-cost!) way to give your sports fan a bit of their favorite team to have fun with.  My kids could not be huger fans- and I think we will definitely be adding to our collection in the future! For purchasing information, you can visit this link.

And I have great news! Three of you will each win your choice of two figures, anything from the currently available Lil' Teammates collection! Open to US mailing addresses only, please.

You might laugh, but I would give one of these to my mom! She is a huge--and I mean HUGE!--Pittsburgh Steelers fan, and she would love these! (I bookmarked the page so I can find them later in case I don't win.) :)
