WINNER: Congratulations to Amy!

Happy anniversary to us! Playground is turning 1 on June 22 and we can’t thank you enough for traveling with us on this exciting journey. We love sharing our family adventures both near and far and hearing from readers about their travels.

To celebrate our big ONE, Sunshine Sam owner Marlene Lewis has put together a gift set of her favorite summer family travel items as an anniversary celebration giveaway for one lucky reader.

Sunshine Sam is a locally-owned, battery-free, toy shop with both a Montclair, NJ, location and an online store (Yay for readers all over the country!) that carries terrific toys for all ages.

The Anniversary Celebration package features items that are all easy to travel with, and also engage and assist kids to get the most out of a trip. They are also parent favorites since they stave off the “Are We There Yets?”

Here’s a look at what you can win:

  • Personalized storage/folding lap desk in pink or green (winner can select color and have it personalized to any theme)


  • Flexi Puzzle book of 80 puzzles
  • Let’s Go To The Beach: includes a fish tote bag, a book about the beach and scavenger hunt cards.
  • Robot or Fairy Magnetic Checkers

This is a super versatile summer package: bring the puzzle to a restaurant, store most everything inside the desk, and use the fish bag for souvenirs, sea shells, snacks etc.

  1. Our favorite place to travel to is to the shore. My kids love to swim, fish, collect sand crabs, build castles, climb the light house, ride their bikes and rock hop on the Jettys. It’s the best way to enjoy the summer while maximizing the outdoors.

  2. Our family favorites… Cape Cod, Long Beach Island, Miami – really anywhere there are waves! Endless hours of body surfing, shell searching and surrendering to the sand is my idea of family vacation.

  3. We love Beach Haven on Long Beach Island. The beach, Fantasy Island, water park, mini golf, outdoor concerts all within walking or biking distance. The whole family loves it!

  4. We like to visit family in Northern California. The beach, redwoods, farmlands, happy cows, local produce, fields of lavender as far as the eye can see. We never tire of it. Beautiful!

  5. The Outer Banks in NC have been a great destination for our family and friends…9 kids under 10 and there is always fun to be had! The kids talk about it all year!


  6. Vermont! We love hiking biking and boating and taking advantage of all the “adventure courses” that all the ski resorts have in the summertime
