Reviewing Pickle Punch - with a giveaway too!


Check it!  The most delicious piece of kiddo art was sent our way a little while back, and I truly adore it.  Whimsical and sweet and humorous, and it just looks so darn good on Eleanor's wall.


The Everyday Dragon print appeals to me as much as to Eleanor.  Dragons are pretty popular in our house, and I love that these 'scawy' creatures are depicted in such a cute and fun way.  I would love to see a children's book with these characters, but meantime Eleanor is content to create stories of her own while she gazes at the poster.


The Everyday Dragon print, aside from being the first print this team has created, is also a limited edition piece, each print signed and printed on the highest quality archival paper, with the super vibrant inks.  This is a large print, and fitted easily into an A2 size frame that I picked up from The Warehouse (they fit perfectly into IKEA frames too).  If you like the look of this print, head over now and snap one of these up before they're all gone.


The Pickle Punch artists, Angela and Mike, seem to be just the types of folks I would get along with superbly.  They share an incredible background in illustration, including having done work for Pixar!  I get the feeling that these guys are destined for some pretty great things, and I for one will be first in line when their children's books start appearing on shelves (*wink wink, nudge nudge*).  They run a great blog on their site, which offers some pretty amazing insight into their artistic processes, as well as competitions, and updates on exciting happenings for Pickle Punch.  If you want to find out more about what these guys are up to, I would head straight there!

And just because they are some of the nicest humans on the internets, Angela and Mike are offering a Golden Adventures reader this super lovely prize pack:



Including - This limited edition 'Love Birds' print, A very cute Elephant 'You Can Dance Anywhere' print, and a set of four adorable greeting cards!  This pack is valued at over $50USD, and all you need to do to enter is head over to Pickle Punch and come back and let me know your favourite print.  I've been checking out this adorable Moose print - LOVE. IT!  Entries close on the 12th of Sept.  Open to NZ and Aus residents.

FYI - the opinions expressed in this product review are 100% my own.  I have a policy of only posting reviews for products I genuinely love, and I contacted these guys and asked to review them.  Because I love them.  Hope you do too!
