===============================================



This giveaway is an Editor's pick on Prizey!






I'm sure you've seen them around at Toys"R"Us, Target, Sears and a lot of other stores. I'm talking about the very adorable Crane humidifiers.
A humidifier is one of those things all new moms should have on their list of things to get (and not just new moms). There's definitely a point in your child's life that you need a humidifier and these humidifiers are not only good-looking, they are easy to use and a necessity.

We had a humidifier in Holland before we moved here, but not only was it huge, it was boring and ugly too. I got a humidifier when Abby was a couple months old as she had a very bad cold but the thing was big and ugly and the maintenance on it was a "pain".

My son always has had bloody noses at night (and not small drippy ones, these are pretty bad) and one of the reasons is that his room is so dry. We had the fantastic opportunity to review a Pig humidifier and I can tell you we haven't had anymore bloody noses. Touch wood here, we haven't had any major colds in the house (well, at least not the kids), but if we do, we're prepared!

A couple of reasons why a humidifier should be on your list too:
  • provide relief from colds, cold and flu symptoms
  • recommended non-medicated alternative to the over the counter children's cold and cough medicines
  • provides moisture for nasal congestion, dry cough, sinus irritation and dry skin
  • easier breathing for a good night's sleep (mhmmm, maybe I should put it in our room, so my husband doesn't snore, I should try that one :))
Crane makes a whole series of Adorable Animals humidifiers. They are not only easy and convenient to use, they are adorable and fun! And they are competitively priced with other plain humidifiers at only $34.99. I have to tell you the humidifier we had before this one was more expensive and not even half as cute.

Talking about easy to use, let me explain:
The removable water tank easily fits under most bathroom sinks, is super easy to fill, and once full, the humidifier runs whisper quiet up to 11 hours and will give you up to 2.5 gallon moisture output per day. This humidifier has an auto-off function when the tank is empty and a low power consumption.
It's very easy to clean too, no replacement filters are needed, you just clean the tank with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and almost one tank full of water. Place tank cap on and shake and then rinse with warm water a few times.




There's not only the adorable animals, have a look at these licensed designs!
Oh, and your son or daughter is into Sports, have a look at these!


There's a humidifier choice for everybody on the site. 
Crane has very generously offered a humidifier from the animal collection (your choice of the pig, penguin, cow, frog, panda, dragon or  elephant. No license designs)
How cool is that?????

For a chance to win, head on over to Crane, have a look around and let me know your favorite design. 
For a second entry, let me know what other design you would like to see them make.

  • follow me on twitter and tweet about the giveaway (leave direct link or username)
  • add my button to your blog (leave URL)

The deadline for this giveaway is 5/18/09 midnight PST. The winner will be emailed and announced at this post on the 19th. The winner has 48 hours to get back to me. This contest is for US residents only.

Thanks Crane!!
