Z WindUps are Z Best Stocking Stuffers

***Giveaway closed.  And the winner is… Tara. ***

Stocking stuffers can be a pain to shop for.  But not anymore!

I was introduced to Z WindUps recently, and absolutely LOVE them.

Z WindUps are collectible, plastic windup toys guaranteed to put a smile on your face. They are appropriate for ages 3+ and are sold in over 10,000 retail stores worldwide.Z WindUps

These windup toys are so cute.  We received for review a selection of Z WindUps toys, including the following…

I love that some of the windups are made of translucent plastic, which enables me to see the inner workings of them.

And Mister and Sister think these things rock!

I couldn’t believe how enamored they were with them.  They watched the airplane one, Skylar, go around the coffee table for what seemed like an hour!  The cool thing about that one is that it is guaranteed not to fall off!  It will catch the seem and turn itself.  Sister was initially uncertain about the snail one, Snoozy.  She kept saying, “Bug, bug” and stepping back.  But then when it stopped, she brought it to me and demanded that I wind it up again.  Since the Z WindUps are age rated 3+, we don’t allow them to play with them unsupervised.

These toys have provided hours of entertainment already! I remember having a couple of windup toys as a child, and I loved them.  I am so glad to have found some that my kids can enjoy, as well.

Z WindUps retail for $5.95 each, but you can catch them in lots and save.

Buy it… Z WindUps are sold at local retailers everywhere, in the Z WindUps E-Store, and on

Win it… Z WindUps would like to give one lucky Lady V dZine reader some windups of their own.  Winner will receive one set of windups in their choice of one of the following themes:
