  59. Christy - December 3, 2013

    I would pick the HERO toddler T for our 3 year old GRANDSON Levi. When he was born it brought OUR family closer together. Literally. His papa and I had been divorced for more than 20 years. At the hospital waiting on his arrival we were in the small space at a kinda awkward moment of bliss and wow I cant believe your here moment our eyes met and its like time stood still. I was pretty much down and out. He was not doing much better.From that moment on we were on a pathway to each other. We never said a word at the time of how we were each feeling about the other. Over the next several months we each ended our current relationships. One day out of the blue my ex showed up where I was staying and Babysitting at.He asked me back into his life. He told me that he wanted us to be together and how he should have never left all though years ago. It was unbelievable. I still loved him too. That was 3 years ago and our grandson will be 4 in February. I believe God had the ultimate role…but it says a child should lead them.Our grandson really has. He struggles with a mild form of Autism and he has had multiple surgeries. No matter how much this little guy goes through he still smiles and laughs and always wants to come see Grandma and Papa. We are now expecting our 5th grandchild and I have to say it all started with my little HERO.

  60. Elizebeth Cribbs - December 3, 2013

    I would love to get this for my beautiful and smart step-daughter. She is always so trendy and thrifty. She rarely gets things that aren’t “hand me downs” or from the thrift store. She always brings a smile to my face and I think the yellow ‘Vienna’ Knit Sweater will look great on her.

  61. Kim - December 3, 2013

    Would love to get the Melissa and doug mail station!

  62. Lindsay Clyde - December 3, 2013

    I would love to buy these Nikes with the gift card! I am in need of new workout shoes! I have a love of working out! And why not look cute doin it! 😉
