Let's Go Camping with Eureka - Review and Giveaway

Eureka, for those of you who don't know, specialize in various camping gear. I was recently offered the chance to review their kid's sleeping bag line. Whenever I have the chance to review something that is for my kids I always give them the choice first and when I asked James if he would like to try one of these

he about fell out on the floor. James LOVES camping and up until now he always had one of those little boy sleeping bags from Wally World. He was so excited about the opportunity to own his own "big boy" sleeping bag that he wanted me to give it to him right then.

When the bag arrived (he meet the FedEx man at the door every day for a week) he was freaking out!

I made him close his eyes.

From the minute he saw it he was in love. Unfortunately we had no plans on camping that weekend, but he didn't care. He wanted to try it out right away. The bag came in its own case - none of those velcro straps that you wrap around the bag to keep it rolled up. (I hate those straps. They rip the sleeping bag apart and always get in the way.)

We unwrapped the bag for him to check it out - here is what that looked like:

Being the 5 year old he was, he had to try it out from every angle.

All in all, this is how it ended - with a grin!

Product tested and approved. Now, a week later - the sleeping bag is still a hot item. He sleeps in it every night on his bed waiting for our next camping trip. Every time someone comes over he has to show them all the cool features of his sleeping bag. It's very cute.

My favorite feature is that once you child is zippered up there is a fold over velcro clasp that keeps the zipper in place (see the exclamation point in the picture above). James' favorite feature is the "secret hiding place" inside the sleeping bag (see pic below). He found that it fits his DS perfectly.
The bag comes in four styles: minnow (featured in this review), grasshopper, ladybug, and lightning bug

The temperature rating for the bags is between 30 and 45 degrees - perfect for camping. The craftmanship is top of the line and I expect this sleeping bag to be around a very long time. I know you want one for your little one, don't you?
