Pop-Tastic Wall Decals! {GIVEAWAY}

Gabrielle and Alaina just turned two and a half and visions of their big girl room have been dancing in my head.  I know it will be a bright and vibrant space - they're just not pastel-y kind of girls - and I've been bookmarking ideas and pinning them on my boards on Pinterest like crazy.  (Side note: if you haven't checked out Pinterest yet, get yourself over there!  It's a wonderland of eye candy you'll never want to leave.)  So when I found Pop & Lolli, I knew I'd hit pay dirt.  Just look at these fabulous fabric wall decals!

Are they amazing or what?

Like so many of my favorite shops and sites, Pop & Lolli was started by a mom who was frustrated when she couldn't find exactly what she was looking for.  In this case, the mom was Mia, a South African ex-pat who put her masters in Architecture to use working as an Imagineer for Walt Disney.  Um, can you say cool job???  But with a munchkin on the way, Mia was disappointed by the nursery decor choices she found and decided to leave her job to design her own products to fill up the blank walls she found staring at her.  The result?  Playful, funky and flexible wall decals that create an interactive and immersive environment for kiddos of all ages.  Mia likes to call it PICTURE POETRY - design as an opportunity for expression and exploration – and I couldn't have said it better myself.

What I love about Pop & Lolli is how many designs there are to choose from!  These ABC and 123 trees would be perfect for a playroom.

And I adore the whimsical animal sets.  There's the African Circus.

The Jiving Jungle Pals.

The Fantasy Forrest Critters.

And my personal favorites - the Fashion Farm Gang.

The argyle sheep slay me!

Pop & Lolli decals are made from fabric, and they're 100% safe for kids, completely non-toxic and made in the U.S.A.  They're also completely re-usable.  That's right, your little ones can pull 'em off the wall and stick them back up as many times as they want, so the sky is truly the limit in terms of what they can create!  Don't believe me?  Then check out the Cutesy Characters.

Adorable. But get this - munchkins can re-dress each one whenever and however they want.

They can even add thought bubbles!

And not to worry - there are Cutesy Characters for little dudes too.

You're probably already adding Pop & Lolli decals to your cart but just in case you need some more convincing, you have to see the accessory kits.  Your kids can throw their characters or animals a birthday party!

Or take them on a road trip.

They can even decorate for Christmas!

I mean, really, could you just die?

Unlike the regular vinyl decals, Pop & Lolli fabric decals have a semi-gloss UV protective coating which gives them a lifespan of 7-10 years indoors and 5-7 years outdoors so they can really grow with your kids. These decals have made such an impression, Pop & Lolli was nominated for a Cribsie Award the Nursery category!  Super impressive for a new company.

And while you're buying, you can also do some good.  Mia has started (it's) chic 2 change, a charity to help benefit children in her home country, so for every set of decals purchased, Pop & Lolli donates educational materials and resources to positively influence a South African child in need. You can't argue with that.

I've purchased my share of vinyl wall decals for the girls' nursery and while they were less expensive than Pop & Lolli's, they can't be re-used and aren't interactive, so if we move or the girls pull them off the wall, we're out of luck.  For their big girl room, I know where I'll be shopping!  

And I've got a nice treat for a lucky AFOMFT reader - Mia has offered to give away one set of the Pop & Lolli Tweetie Birdie decals!

The set includes 16 spunky character stickers and is valued at $67!  Just look at these sassy birds in action.
