Mad Madness – Day’s 20 & 21 FREE $25 Gift Card

in General

** Comments Closed **

Day 2o winner is: #29 – Angella

Day 21 winner is: #15 – Mary-jo


For the 2nd weekend in a row I am childless, it is so quiet, I don’t think I like it. Mr. MommyKnows packed up the kids early this morning and headed for my parents farm. I stayed home, to update the and tie up all kinds of loose ends. Just my luck, my internet has been down most of the day. So I have been wandering around the house, checking the computer every 5 minutes and kicking myself for missing out on all the fun for nothing!

We had a new shipment of toys arrive on Friday! I love the toy orders :). We have some great wooden toys back in stock and a few new wooden toys to add to our collection. Brand new for us are some super cute little dress up sets (always a hit around my house). There are baby toys, toddler toys and preschool age toys so come and have a look (sorry about this awkward sentence … I am testing the effectiveness of the links). I think my favorite new toys are the playground balls.

    Hmmmmm, May Madness in June? Super Summer?

  • Laura May 26, 2007, 10:04 pm

  • Mama K May 26, 2007, 10:09 pm

    “June Jubilee” where you giveaway “June Jubilee Freebies”

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  • Mrs. Pear May 26, 2007, 10:16 pm

    Yay! toys for the summer…or whatever else!

    Well, here in southern CA we have may gray and june gloom, but I don’t think that will be inspiring any contests any time soon….

    How about June Bloom instead???

  • Pam May 26, 2007, 10:22 pm

    How about June Jubilations? I thought of that before I saw Mama K’s suggestion which is somewhat similiar. I could really use a gift card or two to your site. Which reminds me, you’re only online right, there’s no retail store that I can walk into?

  • jenB May 27, 2007, 12:29 am

  • mommyknows May 27, 2007, 1:36 am

    jenB – you have such a lovely singing voice!

    Thanks for the ideas Pam, Mama K, MrsP, MMTAM :)

  • Carey May 27, 2007, 6:00 am

    I love these balls, they are awesome.
    Hmmm…not sure what to call your June event…maybe “Come on Summer! Event”?

  • Kait May 27, 2007, 6:37 am

    What cute little balls. How about June Frenzy?

  • Magi May 27, 2007, 8:03 am

    It’s a June Jamboree! New toys? How fun!!!!

  • Monya May 27, 2007, 8:10 am

    Hmm…June Swoon?

  • Julie May 27, 2007, 8:41 am

    June Lunacy?? I couldn’t think of anything beginning with ‘J’ but lunacy rhymes a little with June…sort of! Or…June Jackpot? Anyway, the gift cards as giveaways is a great idea!

  • Deborah May 27, 2007, 8:45 am

    Dang it! MamaK took my idea of June Jubilee. Hmmm, how about June Jammin’, since we’re jammin’ here on!
    I love these word ‘games’. I will try to think of more!
    By the way, your second ‘Plyaground Balls’ link didn’t bring me to the balls, just to the main site…

  • Jennifer Bogart May 27, 2007, 9:37 am

    Oh, dear, I had June Jubilee too, since we seem to be on an alliteration theme, hows about Jumping for June?

  • Mary-Jo May 27, 2007, 9:46 am

    How about Jumpin’ June Bugs-the madness continues… or Joyful June or The June Jive giveaway…

  • Montserrat May 27, 2007, 11:58 am

    Hmm, there’s a lot of good names suggested already! Here’s what I was able to come up with:

    Swoon in June
    Juicy June Giveaway
    June Frenzy
    Generous June Giveaway

  • Naomi May 27, 2007, 12:23 pm

    June Baby Boon? June Harvest? June Bounty?

    Better yet, Roo wins in June? ha!

  • Laura May 27, 2007, 1:49 pm

    Can I vote for “June Jamboree”?
    I was going to think of my own, but I saw that one and it’s perfect!


  • leslie May 27, 2007, 1:52 pm

    …jumpin’ june?

  • Deanne S. May 27, 2007, 2:32 pm

    How about….Mommyknows is “Feeling June-erous”

  • Amanda Crabmom May 27, 2007, 3:24 pm

    June Jamboree was gonna be my offering but someone beat me to it. will have to put my thinking cap on now…hard to do after last night’s G&Ts.
    I like Feeling June-erous. ANd June Jackpot. That would be better as “June’s the jackpot” maybe.
    “Junever Know…Could be Your Lucky Month” is my hangover brain talking.
    My God, that’s silly. Just stop, CM.
    Lucky Fish June.
    June’s Shwag-o-rama
    Catch the Junebug

    ok. Please stop this crab.

  • Richard May 27, 2007, 3:27 pm


  • Lisa May 27, 2007, 4:20 pm

    Balls are the best toy. What a great choice for a give away. Summer spectacular giveaway is my idea for your June generosity..

  • Desi May 27, 2007, 5:16 pm

    Hmmmm… how about June-a-thon? Or “Just for June”? or Junefest? Or June-a-palooza… Okay, enough already.

  • Pam May 27, 2007, 6:20 pm

    Aw, I came on to suggest June Jamboree and I see that it’s been suggested…several times.
    How about Joyous June givaways?

  • Pam May 27, 2007, 6:31 pm

    Thought of a couple more:
    June Jollies
    June Jolification (yes it is a word)
    Joyous June Jubilees
    Joyous June Jolies

  • Mireille May 27, 2007, 7:05 pm

    My lill’ flower turned 1 yesterday…and I’d love to win something for her ;-)

    How about ‘June Tonic’ for a name??

  • Cherylyn May 27, 2007, 7:48 pm

    I love the balls!!!!!!!!! Yeah, I think we had the same internet woes as you, you never know how dependent you are on the net until you can’t check the weather, news, look up a number, enter a contest, etc. So, how about the sizzling summer shellout? This is almost as much fun as a PW name that photo contest, except there are no cute cowboys here!

  • Angella May 27, 2007, 7:55 pm

    By YOURSELF?? ALL WEEKEND??? I can only dream…


    June Jenerosity? Because SERIOUSLY. You are a giving woman. Kind of a lame name though. You got some good suggestions above.

  • Yan May 27, 2007, 8:27 pm

    hmmm…how about “June Crazy Giveaway” :)
    sorry, nothing else come to my mind.

  • Amy :) May 27, 2007, 8:43 pm

    All I could think of was Joyous June, but I like most of the other ideas better. Enjoy your quiet weekend all alone!

  • alison May 27, 2007, 8:44 pm

    Well, Magi already suggested my thought of “June Jamboree,” but I also thought it would be fun as just one word “Juneboree.” Or playing on the June Jubilee you could go “Junebilation.” I like “Juneboree” better though.

  • Sarai May 27, 2007, 8:49 pm

    How about this one:
    “May Madness Becomes June”

  • jst May 27, 2007, 8:56 pm

    How about “get the Junebug”? Me want gift card.

  • Kilikina May 27, 2007, 9:25 pm

    I would love to be in the drawing.

    June you could use- June

  • Kilikina May 27, 2007, 9:25 pm

    sorry about my above comment, I went blank for an idea for your title and then forgot to delete my sentance! LOL

    June Jitterbug? (not that it’s related…)

  • crystal May 27, 2007, 9:35 pm

    a few suggestions:

    summer sweeps
    the heat is on!

    ok, i’m going to stop now. :)

  • Christina May 27, 2007, 9:50 pm

    Let’s all Jive for the June Giveaway!!!

  • Melanie May 27, 2007, 11:54 pm

    May Madness II – Except in June

    Win in June for your Jack or Jill

  • tanyetta May 28, 2007, 2:49 am

    Please enter my name to win! thanks :)

    p.s. i am not creative at all with names.

  • Jamie May 28, 2007, 5:28 am

    How ’bout Sweet, Sweet Summertime Giveaway?!

    or June is Hot, Hot, Hot!?

    I know…I’m running out of ideas since there have been so many great ones. ;)

  • Stephanie May 28, 2007, 7:21 am

    Thanks so much for leaving a comment on my blog! :) I love the bamboozles, too. ;)

    As far as your June giveaway goes, I really like June Jamboree or Juneboree! That’s cute!

    I’m not very creative in that department, so how about June-a-palooza? lol Or Jumpin’ June Giveaway? I’m lame. lol

  • Susy-Q May 28, 2007, 7:47 am

    If those are the super bouncing balls that I adored as a child myself–they are a real catch (pun intended!). You have had a lot of good names for your (possible) June giveaway and my creative juices aren’t flowing too well this morning. I like Jazz so why not the Jazzy June Giftaway?

  • glittersmama May 28, 2007, 11:37 am

    Me too!

  • MonaB May 28, 2007, 12:34 pm

    How about Jolly June Jumping Extravagnza. Since it is summer time and people will be out doing all sorts of activites! What better to have a Jolly good time!

  • Helen May 28, 2007, 1:25 pm

    I also hate not having the kids here. It just seems to “quiet” and I have all these big plans of things to do and then I get sad and can’t seem to do any of them. Your parent’s farm is pretty close to my sister, she’s in Rimbey. Very nice place and it looks like a lot of fun for kids.

  • michelle May 28, 2007, 1:58 pm

    How about June Gems?

  • Joi May 28, 2007, 2:41 pm

    I wanted June Jamboree as well, and want to stick with that and add a vote for it.. especiall when you see the definition of Jamboree – A lavish or boisterous celebration or party! You are having a LAVISH Celebration of June – Lavish in that you are giving away such awesome gifts all month!! Fits perfect!

  • Katie May 28, 2007, 3:05 pm

    ~Jazzy June (because nobody uses that word anymore and I think it rocks)
    ~Juicy June
    ~June Junk (not that it’s junk, but hey, it flows)

  • Ann May 28, 2007, 6:07 pm

    I thought i had a GREAT idea “June Jubilee” only to realize that sooo many people thought of it first. So here goes… “Jovial June”, “Joyful June” or “June Frolic”.

  • Lacey May 28, 2007, 6:21 pm

    There are so many good ideas for giveaway names. Here goes my not so clever ideas.

  • Meg May 28, 2007, 7:35 pm

    I like school’s out blow-out!

  • Aimee May 28, 2007, 8:30 pm

    Oooooo, so many good ideas. My little June is almost four months old now and hoping to win a gift card (never to young to shop!)

    How about June-alicious?
    Jumping for June giveaways?

  • Carol May 28, 2007, 9:07 pm

    Another one.
    Summer Sensation Celebration

  • Nikki May 28, 2007, 10:15 pm

    Shoot…I hope I’m not to late for this one. I love wooden toys!!! My husband is dutch. I love them all.

    I didn’t read the other posts to see what June suggestions they had but they first one that came to my head was “Generous June” since it seems quite genereous of you to continue it :)
