Bracelet & Princess flowers review 007

When I think of spring, I think of flowers, so when I got the chance to review the Princess Castle Greenhouse, I figured it was a great opportunity to teach my four-year-old a little about plants.  We opened the box & easily got it all set up.  The instructions were very easy to follow which I appreciated!  Mikenah was so excited, she was giggling while we were pouring the dirt into the cups.  She loved that it had princess plant markers.  Once we got everything done, she was ready for the flowers to grow.  Like NOW!

It only took a few days and the first sprouts were poking out of the dirt.  Mikenah was very excited to see her flowers popping up!  This is where it went wrong.  The problem wasn’t that the greenhouse or the flowers were faulty.  But the problem is that I have a “black thumb”.  🙁  I kill most plants & so it didn’t surprise me that these died too.  I’m thinking we over-watered them, but I’m not sure.

I do recommend this greenhouse for a fun way to teach little ones about plants.  Mikenah loved the princess theme & she had fun planting her seeds.  I think when we do it again, I will be more careful with watering & maybe transfer them outdoors sooner.

    I like Giveaway Tools, probably better! I really like that you can’t submit most/certain entries unless they have really been completed!

  5. Elaine Lund says:

    My neice would also love the Pixie Hollow Greenhouse!

  6. Elaine Lund says:

    Giveaway Tools vs. Rafflecopter: I like them both. For a blogger, it’s a good feature that Giveaway Tools confirms entries.

  7. Julie Lynn Bickham says:

    I like the Mickey Mouse Greenhouse.

  8. I like that they’ve included kids in the gardening process – to get them to understand that food doesn’t magically appear on store shelves, and that they’ve got nice recipes for the kids as well.

  9. I like the kids vegetable greenhouse.

  10. Tina M says:

    I like that they have kid recipes

  11. Julie Lynn Bickham says:

    I like the Rafflecopter better, only because it shows if I’m already following someone on twitter or not. The giveaway tool doesn’t. and I need to know because I’m at my following limit.

  12. jodi lasher says:

    I like the miracle grow kids flower terratium

  13. I like them both. Tools isn’t bad, and some entries are confirmed for the blogger.

    I didn’t like it at first, but I’m starting to like it more, I can go for either.

  62. Carolyn Ann Colley (Griffith, Smith) says:

    I didn’t like it at first, but I’m starting to like it, I can go for either one.

  63. Francine Anchondo says:

  79. polly says:

    they also have fun recipies on their site for kids to make
    pkeintz@gmail.com

  80. polly says:

    i like either one…i like where you can leave the comment on the form because you see how people just read the answer from above and say the exact same thing….they need to read your review or giveaway information or go to the site also….it takes time for you to review and write about the product….we all can take the time & read it!

  81. Stephanie Hirsch says:

    I like both forms of entering. I’m used to rafflecopter, but I don’t mind the giveaway tools either. Some things are a little more simple on giveaway tools, like the tweeting. Others aren’t as good as rafflecopter, like you can’t see whether you already follow someone on twitter or not as easily. Either way, they both have good and bad points. Still better than commenting all the time though. =)

  82. Katie R says:

    I want the Mickey Mouse Greenhouse

  83. Katie R says:

    I prefer the giveaway tool. I like that it confirms your entries so there is no question that you did what you were supposed to

  84. mframe says:

    I love the How to grow a purple potato.

  85. I didn’t realize they had so much devoted to kids on their site.

  91. Jennifer Hedden says:

    I like that there is a kids flower greenhouse and a vegetable greenhouse. They are so cute!

  92. Jennifer Hedden says:

    I have used this method and rafflecopter. I like that they are both very easy to use. The only problem I have is that with this one I noticed that it will submit a twitter follow when you double click on it even if it does not allow you to follow it.

  93. Paula Tavernie says:

    I liked the Recipes!
    ptavernie at yahoo dot com

  94. Paula Tavernie says:

  96. tamar says:

    I like that there are recipes.

    Are you trying out Giveaway tools or using it permanently btw?

  97. tamar says:

    Didn’t realize that was a separate entry. I like RC better honestly, but GT is definitely faster when addressing user concerns!!!

  98. I learned how to grow a purple potato!

  99. Emily says:

    I love the website. My kids would love watching the veggies grow. Maybe they would eat them then.

  100. Alicia Zirjacks says:

  120. Amanda Alvarado says:

    I love the Disney Princess Castle Greenhouse and the Mickey Mouse Greenhouse

  121. Amanda Alvarado says:

    I like how I don’t have to copy and paste a tweet URl in the Giveaway Tools. I don’t like how I have to click on the feedburner to enter my entry and the way the following on twitter is set up. I’ve seen it on other sites where the twitter box is used and it automatically checks and blanks out the box if you are already following.

  122. Sue Hull says:

    I want exactly what is in this giveaway for my 2 neices. Thanks so much for the cool giveaway!

  123. Erica G says:

    I prefer giveaway tools.
