Review and giveaway!: Fandangling! (giveaway closed)

Congrats to my winner, Angela!


I'm going to start out this review by getting right to the punchline- we love this product! One of our favorites, for sure.

Fandangling is one of my favorite types of products- something invented by a mom who saw a need and an opportunity and stepped out and invented a solution. This is one of the most simple but brilliant things I've seen in a long time- it's little stuffed animals that velcro onto your ceiling fan, to turn it into a giant mobile for your kids!

My kids have always been fascinated by the ceiling fan in their room. And they always loved their mobile as well, but it never occurred to me to combine the two. Thankfully for all of us, the thought did occur to Anne, and the Fandangling was invented.

I received the Puparazzi Fandangling to review. Ethan saw the cute little stuffed puppies and immediately tried to run off to them. Which was a cue to me to stop waiting and get things installed! Honestly, the worst part of this whole experience was cleaning off the top of my ceiling fan blades so that the Fandangling animals would stick properly. We've lived here for 3.5 years, and I've never cleaned my ceiling fan. I know, Mom of the Year, right? Cleaning the blades took just a minute, as did applying the velcro and sticking on the animals. Total time to install was less than 5 minutes. Then I pulled the fan string and my kids started staring and pointing.








After watching the fan and the
Fandangling go around for about 10 minutes, I tried to turn off the fan, only to be met with Ethan's cries of "more, more puppies?" He thought the twirling puppies were the coolest thing ever, and we ended up leaving it on all afternoon.

We got the Puparrazi Fandangling, but you can also get one with safari animals or butterflies or a seasonal theme. Since it's all attached by velcro, it would be easy to change these out, so get a couple and switch them out when you get bored!



Another great thing about this company is that they donate 10% of their proceeds to charity. I love this!

I love the Fandangling Babies - Safari. Just curious if the Fandangling Kids collection that will be coming soon are different in size or different in theme? The Safari set picture under their menu seems larger.
