GIVEAWAY: One Stokke Scoot Stroller (Value $699)


You know how every time I write a post about Instagram, you guys are like, "Oh my god, NO. Why is she talking about Instagram again? Doesn't she know we read her blog, we don't care about seeing an endless stream of photos of her kids??? I don't even belong to Instagram!!!!"

Yeah? YEAH????

Well, today's the day you say, "Alright, FINE. I'll join Instagram."

Because today is the day I'm giving away the new Stokke Scoot valued at $700.

The Scoot just debuted for Spring 2013 and is Stokke's solution for parents who want a compact lightweight stroller that still retains their "best in class" features. It's particularly useful if you live an urban on-the-go lifestyle like me. The Scoot is "easy to push, easy to fold, easy to carry away one-handed" and ideal for navigating busy streets, narrow doorways and public transit.

Some cool features are the large ventilated canopy, the higher position of the seat which keeps your baby closer to you and also works as a highchair substitute in a restaurant, and an ergonomic seat that zips down to cushion both active and rest positions.

"Well, what do I have to do to win the stroller? Tweet about it? Join your facebook page? Tell everyone I know how awesome Mommy Shorts is for giving away a stroller and then wearing a Mommy Shorts logo on my forehead for a period of one year?"

Nope, none of those things.

You just have to post the graphic below on Instagram, use the hashtag #shortsinthecity and tag/follow @stokkebaby, @mommyshorts, and @amommyinthecity.


But if you'd like to tell your friends how awesome I am, I'm not going to stop you.

For the newbies, to repost a graphic on Instagram, locate my feed (@mommyshorts) where I will have posted the above graphic, take a screenshot, and then re-upload the graphic back into instagram as a picture with "#shortsinthecity @stokkebaby @mommyshorts @amommyinthecity" as your caption. This is all done on your mobile device. Make sure to follow each of us as well.

If having the opportunity to win a stylish new stroller isn't enough to get you to join instagram, allow me to tempt you with various pictures of my children.

You'd get to see pictures of Mazzy like this:

Ideally, I would show you pictures of my new Stokke Scoot, but that would involve yelling at my husband to open the box and put the thing together. It just arrived yesterday (thank you, Stokke!), so I'm gonna wait a day to see if he does it on his own.

Contest ends on Friday, June 21st. One winner will be selected at random. Winner must be within the US and will get their choice of a red or purple Stokke Scoot. You can repost once a day until the 21st.

Good luck!
