Teddies and Stories -- Zylie the Bear Giveaway!

I knew at the start of this summer that Aiden and I weren't going to get a chance to take an extended vacation this year. Circumstances and my crazy schedule just didn't allow it. But that didn't stop me from turning NYC -- in all its glory -- into our very own magical playground. Every week presented a new opportunity for this Mother-Son duo to explore the wonder that is NYC.

A couple weeks ago, along with a few other bloggers and their babes, we headed to Central Park to enjoy Adventures with Zylie the Bear at Oasis Day Camp. Amongst the open field and rocks as backdrop, our little campers enjoyed team building activities, sporting activities, and all things Zylie the bear!

The day began with an interactive read aloud, which introduced stylish Zylie in her Park Avenue apartment as she prepared for a trip to the American Museum of Natural History. Not only is the story entertaining, but it's also engaging because readers just know that Zylie is about to get into some type of mischief. (And, more often than not, she does.) After the reading, campers had the opportunity to create a scrapbook in order to store special memories and keepsakes. Aiden rushed through his scrapbook so that he could -- you guessed it -- climb on the rocks, but I was able to lure him back in when it was time for a group shot.

Each camper got to choose their very own Zylie the Bear or Shen the Panda. Aiden chose Zylie the Bear, and as soon as my 8-year-old niece spotted him with it later on that week, there was a showdown. Zylie is witty, spunky, and fashionable, which is probably why my niece fell in love with her at first site. (Aiden, on the other hand, decided that Zylie looked best with her clothes off, which is another issue to discuss at another time.) Nevertheless, Zylie the Bear has been a hit around these parts. 

And that's exactly why I wanted to share it with you all. ONE awesome Mommy Delicious reader will win their very own Zylie the Bear (or Shen the Panda)! Woot!
