Norman PhartEphant Giveaway

I live in a house of boys. Over the past few years, I've learned to find humor in farting. Seriously, I think any mom has to, or she just may lose her mind.

So, not only do we have a billion different phrases for tooting. We also have to teach the gassy little ones the proper way to excuse themselves. Sometimes, this is not an easy job.

Meet Norman PhartEphant:


According to Fierce Fun Toys, Norman is an African elephant that was recently adopted by a US zoo. Unfortunately, in being transferred to the zoo, Norman's change in diet caused him to become rather gassy.

Although Norman tends to toot a lot, he is rather polite, offering apologies as well. He is just too cute not to smile at, and thankfully his toots are all noise. Any of his 8 different "pharts" are followed by lots of giggles (from people both small and tall).

We love Norman around here. Not only does he provide a good laugh, it gives me a perfect chance to remind my son about manners. I've heard excuse me (or oops, sorry) much more often in the past week than ever before.

Would you like to win?
I'm lucky enough to be able to offer a Norman PhartEphant to one lucky reader.

How to Enter: Visit PhartEphant, and tell them your favorite toy store OR become a fan of Norman on Facebook. Then come back and let me know when you've done either requirement.

Oh mi gosh, this is totally what I need in my house full of boys/men (more boys than men most of the time). Being the mother of 2 boys this is a constant "battle" of manners. I stopped by Norman's website!
