Giveaway: $200 Apple Park gift card
Harlow started camp last week. It’s pretty much just an extension of her school year through June, but they try to make it as different as possible with special themed days. For instance, this Wednesday is Costume Day and last Wednesday was Pajama Day (not to be confused with Mazzy’s made-up Pajama Day in kindergarten).
Wednesday’s Pajama Day worked out PERFECTLY because Apple Park had just sent me a big box of their newest stuff, which included blankets, books, and new bunny PJs for Harlow.
Harlow has worn her Apple Park lambie PJs to death and they were getting a bit snug, so I was happy to replace them. This also meant Harlow looked publicly presentable in her pajamas as opposed to her belly jutting out in one size too small. (Although that looks pretty cute too.)
“Can I take the mouse ballerina?” Harlow asked about her new oversized stuffed friend which matches the mouse ballerina blankie she’s been sleeping with all year.
“Yep. The teacher said you are allowed to bring one stuffed animal.”
“Can I bring my new pack pack?” (That’s Harlow speak for back pack).
“Sure!” I helped her put on her new owl back pack.
Harlow didn’t carry a backpack last year but for camp she needs to pack a bathing suit and towel for the sprinklers. Let me tell you, Harlow is VERY proud when she puts on her “pack pack”. She knows it’s a “big girl” thing.
Then Harlow completed the look with a pair of sunglasses. Because that’s how she rolls.
Apple Park has a been a favorite of ours ever since they sent us a bunch of their signature Picnic Pal pajamas, stuffed animals, hooded towels and children’s books to make our summer house feel more like home for the girls.
Mazzy has been carrying around Apple Park’s pink bunny backpack for her entire year of kindergarten, which incidentally is over at the end of this week. SOB! (I’m sure you’ve noticed it in almost every photo I’ve posted of Mazzy on our school commute.)
Harlow has been sleeping with several Apple Park items at the summer house (including the mouse ballerina blankie I mentioned above), which saves us the trouble of bringing Harlow’s blankie from the city back and forth.
Mazzy is another story since she is still quite attached to her Boo. There are actually five BOOs but Mazzy likes to sleep with ALL of them and doesn’t believe in separating one from the pack. She’ll be taking that pile of rags to college one day, I’m sure.
They also both use their Apple Park towels pretty religiously.
Starting in July, Mazzy will be going to a full day of camp and Harlow will be staying mostly at home. I have high hopes for getting both Mazzy and Harlow more comfortable in the water and was pleased to find a Picnic Pals board book about a duck learning how to swim. All Apple Park’s board books tell simple stories weaving in subtle messages about topics like trying new things, sharing and not being afraid of the dark.
Besides being cuddly and adorable, Apple Park’s products are all organic and designed to be ultra safe and eco-friendly. In addition to the Picnic Pals, they have a line called Farm Buddies which is available at a lower price point.
The Farm Buddies are actually some of my favorites because they have wackier characters like Pork Chop, the karate chopping pig , Frenchy Fox, the scarf-wearing fox, and Catnap Kitty who is dressed in a bikini.
What child wouldn’t want a cat in a bikini??

I still love the Organic Patterned Bunnies or any of the Cubby Picnic Pals. They’re my favorites.
LOVE the toddler bunny bath wrap! My little lady is always so cold and loves to have a hooded towel…but so many are too small for toddlers! Looks adorable, large and comfy!
I would get the monkey backpack and bunny backpack for my twins…and one of the gift sets for my four day old nephew!!

I would have to go with the Porcupine organic gift set just to hear my 2yo say ‘Porpine!’ (her version of Porcupine). And it would also have something each girl could enjoy/share. My 2yo would immediately stake claim to the blanket (every blanket in our house is HER blanket) and my 7mo would love the rattle; and the book would be a great item for both to enjoy.
Can’t wait to read how the girls do with swimming this summer, and any advice/tips for the process – Good luck!!

Although I would LOVE the penguin backpack for myself (I’d even carry it on my arm like a purse!), I know my son would love the surfer chick or pork chop farm buddies 🙂
Cute stuff! It’s crazy to think how much child-centric stuff exists these days. When I think about my great grandmother as a child I picture a rag doll made of twine and perhaps a wooden spoon as her toys. Tee hee.
The catnip plush doll is so cute!
The matching penguin backpack and lunch bag!
I absolutely love the monkey pacifier pal!
Pirate Pig is so flipping cute! My son loves pirates and makes the funniest hook with his arm as he arghs like a pirate!
The toddler bath wrap with the owl (who)! It might just tempt my child to leave the bath.

I’m 100% in love with the organic patterned bunny in blue forest print. But I won’t lie, I’d buy one of everything if I could! It’s all so adorable.
Difficult to pick just one. For my 4 year old, I love the purple owl backpack. And for my little one, the Belle the Cow blankie – she’s obsessed with chewing on blankets so this would be perfect.
I like the Boxer Dog….everything! A while outfit coordinated with a toy – deal!
Ballerina mouse for sure!
We could use the toddler bath wraps, but I’m totally in love with Pork Chop!
the penguin lunchbox!
Chef cow is my 4 yr olds pick.. He loves cows!
So Many cute stuffs … But my favorite
Is the bat lunch box and backpack adorable !!!
I would have to buy pirate pig for my son and belle cow for my daughter, they are simply adorable!!
The pirate pig is adorable!
The pirate pig plush is perfect! We live in Iowa, so pig toys abound, but that one is such a cute combination!
The pink bunny backpack would be incredible for my soon to be kindergartner!
Definitely the owl back pack – my two year old daughter Emerson loves her “whoot whoots”
Probably pajamas, my little baby needs some for the summer
That Bee toddler bath wrap is just too cute. It was hard to choose with so many cute items.
I fell in love with Belle the cow (plush) and ordered her before I could stop myself!
Now I will HAVE to get my daughter an owl towel. I can’t quite let go of her baby towel but I need to face the fact that she has outgrown it!
