Now this is a fun review and giveaway for the whole family!

What is a TickleMe Plant you ask?
The TickleMe Plant grows from a seed in about 7 days if the temperatures are kept between 70° and 85° Fahrenheit. However, if temperatures are lower, it may take 21 to 30 days for your TickleMe Plants™ to sprout. The first leaves are not ticklish but even these small TickleMe Plant™ sprouts will begin “sleeping” at night, by closing their leaves and dropping the branches.


Our plant sprouted in little over a week and we have cute little leaves at the moment that move. My kids love it! 
We can't wait for the plant to grow bigger as it will have pink flowers when it's bigger.


Some more info on the company behind this fun plant.
When my brother Larry and I were children, we would show our friends our TickleMe Plants and watch the looks of disbelief and excitement on their faces. 
Growing TickleMe Plants from seeds was then and still is a magical experience for us. Throughout our lives, we continued to grow our own TickleMe Plants. I became a science teacher and over my 30 years of teaching have had many budding scientists experience the joy of raising their own TickleMe Plants.
Larry and I decided to form the TickleMe Plant Company, so that we could make the TickleMe Plant experience available to all people young and old. Many children (and adults) have never been exposed to the joy and importance of plants. Watching a plant grow and move can be an unforgettable experience. We don’t want children and those young at heart, to lose “touch” with our living world. What better adventure than to raise their own TickleMe Plant from seed? A great experience for everyone! Growing a TickleMe Plant is the perfect gift for someone who wants to share their love of nature and gardening!

The people of TickleMe Plant have offered to give 1 of my readers a TickleMe Plant Mini-House/Party favor so you can see for yourself how much fun this is!
The bag has lots of seeds so you can plant lots of plants all year round.

Hey Ann! Just stumbled upon your blog. I thought this post was uber fascinating. I live in Cebu City, Philippines and, if I'm not mistaken, those plants are what we call those Touch-Me-Not.

I'm really proud to say that those plants grow everywhere here. And I mean EVERYWHERE!!! I've played with them when I was a kid and even until now, they still hold a certain kind of fascination over me. I pass by those plants when I go over to my boyfriend's house and I still can't help but stop and touch them. They're amazing, aren't they?

I'm glad that you guys are enjoying their magic!!!
