Happy Blogiversary! Win a Tripp Trapp!

Today, Spillingthebeans is 3 years old! The past year has been a blur, but we’ve got a lot to show for it. Two new stores, one new kid and somewhat less posting than usual because of it all. Sigh. 

As is now traditional, we do a great giveaway to mark the Blogiversary. Today, we spent part of our day with our good friend, Geir Stokke, head of Stokke USA. We had a great meeting and a great lunch, and so in his honor, and in honor of his favorite product in the universe, we are giving away a Stokke Tripp Trapp chair. You can choose any color you like, or you can create your own combination (as seen here). Stokke will also throw in one of the new Table Top trays! To enter, simply comment on this post. We will draw a winner one week from today.

And yes, we did eat cake. 



  1. Happy Blogiversary! Thanks for setting up this prize

  65. Happy Blog-iversary!

    My (almost) 3 year old niece has had her eye on that chair since the moment she walked into the MB at Derby… Her favorite color soon became “lime green” after asking me what color the chair was. She would think Santa came early this year if she ever got this… oh ya that’s right… she spends more time on that chair in the store than playing or looking at the toys… lol.

    Great idea, to another amazing year!!
