Winners of the "Pupsik in a Pouch" Giveaway!

Finally, the moment we have all been waiting for...the results of the "Pupsik in a Pouch" giveaway!


First of all, thank you all so much again for taking the time to send in your pictures. It is really encouraging to see how our pouches have been an integral part of your lives as a busy parent and to hear how much your babies enjoy living in a Pupsik pouch! I am a firm believer that carrying your baby in a soft carrier like a Pupsik pouch not only helps your life as a busy parent, it also facilitates bonding with your child and allows them to grow up happier and more confident. It is so wonderful that so many moms, dads and babies out there can testify to the many benefits of babywearing and I am only too glad to have this opportunity to share this amazing product on Pupsik Studio.

Ok, before I rattle on and on about babywearing, lets get straight to business!

Believe me when I say it was so tough selecting 3 winners for the giveaway. After much deliberation, we finally settled on 3 entries which we thought had that little special touch.

The 1st winner is.....drumroll.....Yuling and Andy wearing baby Raeann!
We felt that this entry had extra points for winning because it was a daddy using our pouch and I always say there is nothing more manly than a man slinging his baby and going gai-gai (see pic above). We also love that Yuling shared her pictures with a poetic testimony that rhymes(!):

I love that he loves to sling our girl,
Despite it being too tight (it's meant for me, you see! :p).
We get stares one too many,
But he says, "Let it be".
So we go romping about town,
With Raeann snug in our pouch.
Hands-free, hassle-free,
Like a joey safe and sound.
That's why we love Pupsik,Warm and pretty and so lovely!

Thank you Yuling for sharing these lovely pictures! Congratulations on being our first winner!

The second winner is the entry sent by Kwan Chiao Chyi and her lovely baby Hannah Tan Hui En. (above) Chiao Chyi and Hannah at the zoo. Here is what Chiao Chyi has to share about the Pupsik pouch.

I like the Pupsik pouch because
1. It is fuss free. It takes awhile to get the hang of it but it's really easy once you're used to it. There is nothing to pull and no extra cloth hanging out.
2. My daughter loves it. She sees the world through my perspective. Her favourite was the kangaroo carry when she was 3-5 months old. She could look out at the world with me just right with her. Now her legs have to hang out but she likes it all the same.
3. My hands are free for shopping, browsing and getting stuff even while I'm carrying my baby. I have my daughter close to me while I'm out and about...and she'll always be ready for a hug.
4. The design and material - trendy, stretchy and comfy

What delighted us most about Chiao Chyi's entry was that she shared pictures of her mother and mother-in-law (see pic above) both using the pouch to carry Hannah. How sweet is that? Thank you Chiao Chyi for sharing these lovely pictures! Congratulations on being our second winner!

Our third winner is from Josie Quak carrying Jey. Josie actually took the time to submit her pictures in the form of a collage to share how the pouch has been a part of Jey's life! The collage is lovingly entitled "Pouch Story".
A picture speaks a thousand words...

Thank you Josie for sharing these lovely pictures and congratulations to you, Chiao Chyi' and Yuling/Andy for being our first 3 winners! You have each won for yourself a brand new pouch of your choice from our new collection when it comes up, a 100%handmade travel-sized beansprout pillow with taggies, exclusive T-shirt iron-on by artist mein, and 'I love pupsik' buttons which we hope you will display on your diaper bag to help us spread the word on us! =)

And now for the wildcard! Since all the pictures you sent were so lovely, we thought it would be most unfair if we just settled on 3 winners. So we decided to add an element of surprise in this giveaway by conducting a lucky dip. As usual, we called in our lovely assistant, Vera, to choose 3 entries from a bag. These lucky winners will each stand to win a travel-size beansprout pillows with taggies. And to prove to you that this lucky dip is not rigged, we took a video.


hmm...my "Congratulations" in the video sounds wierd. =) Too bad we can't retake this.

Anyway, here are our lucky winners sharing their pictures and lovely testimony about our pouches.
"I like the Pupsik baby pouch carrier because it is convenient to carry my baby around, and she feels safe and comfortable inside the pouch carrier. :)" Ruby Tok

"Why I like my Pupsik pouch carrier?Because it's super easy to use, folds neatly and compactly and I love the funky stripes pattern on the carnival design. Most of all, my baby girl just simply loves being carried around in it! Also, it's a total lifesaver when she gets cranky in her stroller! " Azlina Hussain

"Just look at us! With pupsik pouch we're ready to go anywhere, anytime! Yippeee!" Norliana Shammad

So that is it! Our 3 top winners and another 3 lucky winners!

And for the rest who shared your babywearing journey with us, we will be posting your beautiful pictures here and sharing some of your testimonies on this blog over the next few days. I hope you will not mind. We would also like to show our appreciation by giving you a special something in the post. It's a little surprise, not something big but we hope you will like it when it arrives. Thank you all so much again for supporting Pupsik Studio!
