Labor of Love Giveaway #2: Svan Bouncer from Oompa

When I was pregnant for both my daughters, I was an obsessive list maker!  I made lists for everything including books to read, places to register, questions for the Pediatrician, and baby gear to purchase.  A good friend of mine recommended getting a baby bouncer to soothe our newborn.  I am so glad we took her advice because our bouncer worked like a charm on both girls!

Labor of Love Giveaway #2:  Svan Bouncer in Baby Blue/Natural from Oompa!

Oompa, founded in 2004, was a family held California corporation.  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.  Now you can find some of the best baby gear around at Oompa!


Among the baby gear available at Oompa is this fabulous Svan Bouncer!  From the website:

“The bentwood Svan Bouncer is the perfect seat for your baby from birth until they are ready for a high chair. The bouncer is fully adjustable, with a seat that allows your baby to lay down for naps, sit up to observe their surroundings, or lounge anywhere in between. Wonderful for rocking your child to sleep with a gentle tap of your foot or allow it to bounce with your child�s own movement. Folds up for easy storage or travel. Padded fabric seat is easily detachable for machine washing.”

Oompa has generously donated one Svan Bouncer in Natural/Baby Blue (similar to the one pictured above) to one lucky Not-So-Blog reader!  Your baby will be bouncin’ in style!  The Svan Bouncer retails for $119.00.
