Did you know Father’s day is celebrated the third Sunday in June in 55 of the world’s countries. It is believed that the first Father’s Day was June 1910 which makes this year the 100th year of celebrating fathers and parenthood. With Father’s Day coming up, we wanted to have a special giveaway as a way to celebrate all the awesome dads in our lives. We all have those moments we hold dear to our hearts about our own dads and the dad of our children. For this giveaway, it seemed only fitting to hold a giveaway that included a grand prize that dads would love as well as the opportunity for more sleep!
So, with that in mind, we will be giving away a new Flip Video Camera to one lucky winner to give to or share with the dad in their life. What a great opportunity to be able to capture all of life’s special moments or even quite possibly create the next YouTube video sensation. (Have you seen the video this kid’s dad made of him after a visit to the dentist? Over sixty million views! A very patient dad, indeed.)
The Flip Ultra Camera is a compact, easy to use hand held camera that can capture up to 120 minutes of video on 4 GB of built in memory. This camera not only makes it easy to capture video of kids and family in action with just the push of a button but it makes it simple to download onto your computer and share with friend and family. The Flip Ultra Camera comes with a flip USB arm that plugs directly to your computer automatically launching the FlipShare software. This software lets you easily manage and share your videos by email or uploading online. There is a large 2 inch screen on the back for immediate playback.
*Please note that the Flip Camera prize is available to US residents only.
Of course, we want to ensure that Dads (and Moms!) are getting good sleep so we will also be offering the following Baby Sleep Site ™ prizes:
