Kids Beach Essentials: Havaianas Kids Colourful Collection + {Giveaway}

The recent thunderstorms have brought much relief to Singapore's dry spell at the beginning of this year. But thank goodness there's still much sunshine despite the rain! :) Lil Pumpkin loved her Disney Princess Ariel Havaianas and recently, we got another pair for her to wear to the beach or her favourite waterplay parks when the weather's good.

Personally, I like that Havaianas is pretty well-made and lasts longer than most other flip-flops. It also has a good grip for the feet with the Japanese zori-textured pattern.   

For Lil Pumpkin, I guess the wide variety of designs with her favourite cartoon characters appeal to her! This time, she chose a purple Disney Tinker Bell pair of Havaianas. She liked that it has Tinker Bell's playful fairy friends, Rosette, Iridessa and Silvermist, on it too :)

There's a special promotion going on for kids this month from Havaianas, For every 2 kids' pairs you purchase, you'll receive 2 free special-edition Havaianas Colouring Book and Crayons set! It's on now while stocks last at Motherswork, Mothercare and Havaianas stores at Raffles City & Takashimaya, so you hurry on down if you want them~

Actually no worries even if the weather is gloomy and Lil Pumpkin has to stay indoors. She can still have fun with the many pages of cute sun, sand and sea pictures in the Havaianas Colouring Book to colour to her heart's content! :P

Just for my special blog readers and friends only, I have THREE Havaianas Kids Hamper to give away! Each hamper consist of one pair of kids flip-flops {ANYTHING OF YOUR CHOICE!} + one special-edition colouring book set.

My hubby and I go everywhere with our slippers on weekends and that kind of influenced our daughter. She is obsessed with slippers so Im really hoping to be able to win a pair of slippers for her so that she can join us. Havaianas are known for its quality, comfort and the beautiful design and Im sure it will take us everywhere.

The kids go everywhere in their slippers nowadays. The weather is too hot and wearing shoes make it worse for them. They change into slippers the moment after classes and into the car :)

I would like to win this contest for my 3 y/o boy. We could go the playground and slide down the slide wearing this pair of havaianans, and drop by the 7-Eleven for his favourite 100 plus. With this pair of flip flop his feet will also be able to dry easily instead of getting all stuffy and smelly.

She's not my kid but i love her to bits. I'd bring my friend's lil princess in her princess havis to POLW in Sentosa. She'd have a whale of a time there and not worry about getting her feet (and havis) wet! :)
