Oompa: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis The Allerhand lunch tote from Oompa.com will be the perfect way for Lily to bring her lunch to Pre-K!


One Flamingo Allerhand Lunch Tote, a nutritional lunch and an excited preschooler!  About Oompa.com:


“Oompa Toys, founded in 2004, was a family held California corporation. In May of 2007 I moved both the company and my family to Madison, WI. Oompa Toys continues to carry a wonderful, ever expanding mix of wooden toys, baby toys, soft dolls, play food, ball tracks, play mats and other beautiful, high quality wooden toys. We offer fair and competitive prices and strive for 100% customer satisfaction.”


I can’t believe my baby is headed to preschool in a few short days!  In an effort to make her excited about her new journey, we have perused many “Back to School” aisles at local stores and browsed online catalogs to make sure she has the gear she needs to be successful.  So, I was thrilled to be introduced to Oompa.com!   When Lily received her Flamingo Allerhand Lunch Tote, he first words were, “Ooooh!  Just like the big girls have at school!”  And shortly after this exclamation came, “It’s PINK, Mommy!”  She was thrilled!  As a Mom, I love that it has a large, easy to open zipper.  Lily was able to open the tote with ease on her own.  I also like the fact that there are several compartments to organize her lunch including a little pouch on the inside that I think will be great for drink money.  The shoulder strap is adjustable so it fits her just perfectly and the strap can even be made into a backpack!  Genius!



Overall, both Lily and I loved the Flamingo Allerhand Lunch Tote from Oompa.com!  It is insulated and well made so I know it will be great for the upcoming school year.  If you need Back to School supplies, make sure you check out the great selection of backpacks, lunch boxes/bags, and pencil cases!  And make sure you come back to The Not-So-Blog in early September, where Oompa will be giving away an INCREDIBLE prize for my “Labor of Love” baby giveaway series!  You do NOT want to miss it!
