The Felted Pear Giveaway

~This giveaway is now closed~

Oh boy
, are you guys in for a treat!!

My friend, Susan, author of Chasing Marcus and owner the lovely Etsy store, The Felted Pear, has made a veritable cornucopia of beautiful felt food to give away to one *very* lucky winner!
Just look at this feast! A true rainbow of colors.
And yes, ALL of this will go to one of you!
(note: dishes and bowl are NOT included)


Not only is Susan a felt food guru, she's also a Registered Dietitian. She designed these healthy foods with the four main food groups in mind and has provided enough of it to create several balanced meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. See the photos below for details of each food group...

Protein
~A chicken leg, a cute lil' fish, a slice of ham, and two eggs~

Fruits & Vegetables
~A banana {removable from the peel!}, the most beautiful starfruit, an eggplant, a carrot, and five sweet strawberries~

Dairy
~An adorable carton of milk, a wedge of white cheese, a slice of cheddar cheese, a bit of shredded mozzarella, and a stick of butter~

Grain
~Two slices of whole wheat bread, 20 (!) pieces of whole wheat bowtie pasta, and two perfect pancakes~

Amazing, right? Each of these items were handmade with care by Susan using child-safe, environmentally friendly materials.

And can I just say that I am beyond impressed with the handiwork and fine attention to detail on each piece of food - from the delicate french knots on the strawberries to the unbelievably uniform blanket stitching on the pancakes!

I'm totally blown away by Susan's generosity with this giveaway. This huge collection of food will completely stock the play kitchen of one very lucky child! In addition to all of the food shown in the above photos, Susan is throwing in some sauce for your pasta! Oh and she's sending it all to you in an adorable "recyclable" bag, the color of which is chosen by the winner. That's a total of 45 items (A $100 value!) - FOR FREE!

You'll find even more fabulous food options at Susan's store, The Felted Pear, where she's generously offering a 20% discount to Counting Coconuts readers - simply enter "coconuts" in the comment section when you check out. This offer is good until July 18th.


You'll have 8 chances to win this amazing bounty! None of the following are mandatory; they simply offer you the maximum amount of entries:

1) Visit The Felted Pear and let me know in the comment section your favorite item in the store and what food item you'd like to see added to the store.
2) Become a fan of The Felted Pear on Facebook.
3) Become a follower of Counting Coconuts.
4-8) Come back to this post and leave ONE comment per day until the end of the giveaway, which is Friday, July 16th at midnight (AST).

This giveaway is open to anyone in the United States (incl. Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Island) and Canada.

Good luck!

Everything on The Felted Pear looks delicious! I'd like to see a set of smaller, sliced veggies for making a stir-fry (like the mushroom and pepper slices in the pizza and omelet sets... but packaged together for a stir-fry). How fun!

what about some raddish, garlic cloves (you could have a string of them), would some sort of nut be doable like a walnut? mango?

My favorite is the carrot, I think, because I LOVE the detail.

I would think a taco would be a nice addition to the collection.

Thanks, Mar!

The artichoke must have taken a long time to make. I've made felt food for Bear, but I hardly have any veggies for her.
