Sweet Tidings Sponsor Giveaway: The Rice Babies



This week's sponsor giveaway is from The Rice Babies, an ETSY shop that specializes in adorable playthings for both young and old. The Rice Babies is a brainchild of Kellie, an artist who loves illustrating and sewing. Aside from being a mom to two adorable boys, Kellie also teaches art to children and also owns another ETSY shop, The Paperista, a specialty shop that creates magnets and custom/ready-to-print invitations. Kellie decided to open her own Etsy shop after finding it difficult to look for Asian inspired dolls that look like her nieces. Apparently, Asian dolls are hard to find and even if she does find them, they don't fit her nieces.

As her products are mostly Asian dolls, Kellie named her shop The Rice Babies, an interesting reference to the rice eating population. If you want to make your own Rice Baby, Kellie offers a downloadable pattern in her shop. New products such as boy dolls and aprons will be added to the shop in the coming year.


This holiday shopping season, check out The Rice Babies for very adorable and nicely priced stocking stuffers such as pinback buttons and brooches and of course Kellie's signature Asian dolls and felt crowns. As of the moment the shop offers free shipping to US and Canada and 10% discount on shipping for international orders. For sale alerts and promos, follow The Ricebabies on Twitter .

As a special treat to Sweet Tidings readers, simply mention "Sweet Tidings Blog" in the message to seller during checkout and you will receive a free extra surprise goodie!

For this giveaway, The Rice Babies is offering one lucky reader a fun Where the Wild Things Are Felt Crown. It's just the perfect gift to give to the little kid in your life!

  10. First off... love the new look. I swear... everytime you change, I think... I like this the best. Always fun watching your creativity! Also... blogger is much easier to comment in! Anyway... enough prattle... about the contest!

    The dolls are all adorable, but I feel in love with the little brooches. With jacket season upon us, bopping around with one of these little winter dolly heads would be too, too, fun!

    Thanks Christy, and Rice Babies for this chance to win! BTW... the crown is a hoot! The grandbabies would love it.
