Patching giveaway!! Eye patches, books, and a patching bear!

Updated: Thank you everyone who entered!  Congratulations to Sheri and Fran, whose names were chosen as winners.

Patching is never much fun, but sometimes a little bit can go a long way to making it a bit better.  We have a great giveaway with  items from Kids’ Bright Eyes and Patch Land Adventures to help with patching time!

The two winners will receive a beautiful patch from Kids Bright Eyes, a Patch Land Adventure book by Carmen Swick and a sweet stuffed bear wearing an eye patch.

The patches

kidsbrighteyes_patches

Kids Bright Eyes has a great selection of hand-made eye patches that go over glasses.  They come in fun, bright colors with very charming, very cute decorations.  The company is a husband and wife team that formed when their daughter was born with PHPV, causing loss of vision in one eye.  She has worn glasses since 2 months old and will for the rest of her life in order to protect her good eye.   They have been inspired by their experiences to offer fun patches and frames at affordable prices. We offer a variety of designs and colors to help kids feel confident and proud.

The books

patchland
Carmen Swick’s son, Preston, has amblyopia.  She has written a series of books, called Patch Land Adventures, about his adventures with his dog Beau.  The books are fun and imaginative, while also providing relatable characters who don’t like wearing a patch, but understand why it’s important.  The books have been recognized with awards such as a 2012 Seal of excellence award for book 1 and a 2013 book of the year award (Kids-Health Challenges category) for book 2.  The winners will receive their choice of Book 1: Fishing with Grandpa, or Book 2: Camping at Mimi’s Ranch!

The Bear

Beary the Black Bear(2)
Patching is always easier when there’s someone else doing it along with you!  “Beary the Black Bear” is a 12″ plush bear that comes with your choice of a black or pink eye patch.  The bear is a character in the Patch Land Adventures books, and will keep your child company while they’re patching.

The Giveaway

  • Two winners will be chosen at random on Monday, November 25 at 9:00 pm.
  • Each winner will receive a Kids Bright Eyes eye patch of their choice, a Patch Land Adventures book of their choice, and a plush bear!
