Surrender, Dorothy: Reviews Disclosure

  • This is a review blog, not a personal blog. Marketers send me products for free, and I agree to review them. Sometimes they offer me a small fee for my time. This fee covers my time, but it doesn't buy a positive review. My time is valuable, and there are many other income-producing ways I could spend it. I choose to do reviews because I believe they have value in our culture. I don't review food anymore. I rarely review music. I don't review games unless they are educational. I mostly focus on books (picture and adult), clothing (baby through adult), services, tools, and home improvement items. I don't print the press release. Please do not send me a press release. If I review your product, it might not be favorable. I don't return review products because I don't have an assistant to drive them to the post office and stand in that crazy line. I'm not a big corporation; I'm just a normal person with a limited amount of time. Please, readers, do not be confused: I did not buy anything you are reading about here. I didn't just stumble into Wal-Mart and say, "OMG, I MUST HAVE IT." Somebody sent it to me and asked me to write about it. So I did. I can be reached at

I love me some cute elephants.


Oh lord, my daughter LOVES her some elephants, and her birthday is coming up. She would love love love to have that.

And... really, we can enter as many times as we want? I can just sit here and enter all day...? ;)

Yup, Mir -- enter away!

Elephants would be great for my daughter's room - thanks for the great giveaway opportunity


Very cute :)

Love that flower!!!


Adorable elephants!


Oh I love that! My daughter has an elephant sized personality - maybe she'd let me hang it in her room?

Hi there - I'm the artist. I just wanted to mention that if you like the elephants, I have similar collages in my shop with bunnies, hamsters, rhinos, teddy bears, coffee cups, pandas and cats. Check them out at Thanks!

Amelia Sprout

I love those! What a great way to make a connection!


I still love those elephants. Just sayin'.


And I kind of thing entering a million times is weird and obnoxious.


But I'm going to anyway.


Because (did I mention?) my girl loooooves elephants.


Also, did I mention she has a birthday coming up?


She's going to be 12. Which is all grown up, I guess.


But not too old for elephants. I hope.


I should probably get back to work and stop spamming your comments....
