sophie gift set give-away from buttons 'n' bows

Buttons 'n' Bows Children's Boutique & Sportswear sells a variety of children's merchandise through two locations:  in Lawson Heights Mall and at 116 103rd Street.

Buttons 'n' Bows, owned by Saskatoon mother of two Shelly White, sells children's clothing and accessories, from micro-preemie up to size 12. It also carries a large selection of children's NHL and Roughrider apparel. In May, it will begin carrying Reebok Roughrider merchandise for newborns up to youth sizes.

Most of its products -- shoes, toys, swimwear, cloth diapers, you name it -- have been tested by Shelly's 2-year-old Carter, who his older brother refers to as "the official baby of Buttons 'n' Bows."

One of its best sellers is Sophie the Giraffe, a popular teething toy made from natural rubber and food-grade paint. "Carter cut 14 teeth chewing on Sophie," Shelly said. "Today, he just feeds Sophie popcorn and gives her hugs and kisses."

Until a recent visit to the Buttons 'n' Bows Lawson Heights Mall location, I was somehow unaware that there is an entire Sophie collection!  Buttons 'n' Bows stocks the original Sophie, Sophie teethers, bath towels and even plush, stuffed Sophies.

Buttons 'n' Bows is giving away a Sophie newborn gift set, valued at $38, to one lucky saskmom.com follower. The set contains Sophie the Giraffe, the Sophie Vanilla Teether and a Sophie the Giraffe rattle. This collection is the perfect baby shower gift. . . or perfect enough to keep for yourself.
