2011 Holiday Giveaway Bash | $100 Gift Card to FashionPlaytes #wingiveaways

by Marcy on November 11, 2011 · 166 comments

If you are looking for a fun and unique gift idea for girls ages 5-12, be sure to check out FashionPlaytes!

FashionPlaytes is a site that allows girls to design and wear their own fashions!

My 5.5 year old and I sat down last night and she designed a denim skirt, long sleeve tee and a pair of sweat pants. The site was easy to use (she figured it out with little help from me), and it is fun that she was able to design her own label for each item – truly making it her own fashion line. Here are pictures of the tee and skirt that my daughter designed. Can you tell that her favorite color is purple? :-)


Beyond the clothes, girls can create their own model to try on their own designs, make a fun room, and create a stylebook to show off their styles to friends and family.

From now through the end of the year, you can get $10 for every $50 that you spend – including money spent on gift certificates! Have your special girl visit FashionPlaytes.com/BlackFriday on Thanksgiving Day to enter FP’s featured designer contest, where she can win her creations for free! Then, check back on Friday to see if she’s a winner and get great discounts on the clothes she designed! Rumor has it that if you shop before 2 pm on Friday (11/25/11) you’ll also get a FREE $25 e-Gift Card for every $50 you spend!

We had a lot of fun with FashionPlaytes, and are excited to receive the clothing my daughter designed. I’m thrilled that I get to share the experience with at least one of you for FREE!

WIN IT! 1 lucky Stretching a Buck Winner will receive a $100 FashionPlaytes Gift Card to spoil their little fashionista with!
