Penny Stones Review and Giveaway

9:10 AM


***Giveaway Closed***

Have you ever had someone ask you for a penny for your thoughts? I have...and this next company can help you with that answer!

Meet Penny Stones!!! Now THIS is a really cool company that you are sure to love! As soon as I saw their product, I was sold.
Penny Stones are small, flat, glass "stones" that have questions on them. There are 21 in a bag and also come with a shiny penny...the "penny for your thoughts". They are great ice breakers for parties, family gatherings or just for your own family around the dinner table...not to mention that they look pretty and elegant just as a center piece! Here is how they work...

You give each person in the group a Penny Stone or let them pick their own. Then, you go around the group and have each person read their question on the bottom side of the stone (which is clear so you can see your question through the stone) and then answer it! This is a great way for people to get to know each other better and really start some conversations...especially if you have some "quiet ones" in the group! I don't know about you, but I LOVE this idea.
One of the things that I love about this product is that it was invented by a stay at home mom like me!! Her name is Tammy Gentry and she is the reason Penny Stones are available for us to enjoy today! A little more about her story and how Penny Stones came to be...

"I received a set of handmade conversation stones as a gift in the summer of 2007. After seeing how much my family enjoyed playing with them, as well as how much my children’s conversation skills improved, I wanted to share them with friends. That fall, I made some as gifts. When several neighbors asked where they could buy a set, I knew Penny Stones (a penny for your thoughts…) could become a new product. My friend who gave me the original set encouraged me to bring them to market. Penny Stones were launched in July of 2008. My greatest reward is getting to hear Penny Stones stories. I love to hear what spouses learn about one another, the funny things children say, and the wonderful memories brought back by a simple question on a stone."- Tammy Gentry, CEO, CMD Gifts
Penny Stones have been proven to also improve communication skills within families...particularly with children. Why? Because it encourages two-way conversation. You are asking and answering a question. Communication is a lost art these days and we are to be instilling this skill in our children daily. Penny Stones really make it fun and educational at the same time! In fact, when my Penny Stones came in, my two year old LOVED to play with them...she is learning to count so we just put them from one container into another and they were GREAT for a teaching tool! Just remember that they are a choking hazard, so supervise young children when using them. :)
Another really neat option when it comes to choosing which Penny Stones collection will suit you best is the fact that there are different themed Penny Stones. Here they are:
Original Edition: Generic questions like, "superpower you’d like to have", "best trait of person on your left", "favorite summer memory".

Love and Marriage Edition: Questions like, "How you met your mate", "Your first kiss" "favorite proposal story".

New Parents Edition: Questions like, "traditions you'll share with baby", "best parenting advice you've received", "favorite baby names".

Slumber Party Edition: Questions like, "trophy you’d like to win", "all-time favorite teacher" "your three wishes".

Faith-Based Edition: Questions like, "one word to describe God", "what is faith", "importance of forgiveness".

They can also create custom Penny Stones for your particular event, party, etc. So, as you can see, the options are so creative and fun...you will be able to have Penny Stones for anything!!! In my opinion, Penny Stones are a great product and are really perfect for any occasion!
