Give-Away #4: Mels Fun Suds

I stumbled across this simply adorable bathtime-fun shop a couple weeks ago, and instantly knew I wanted to get my hands (er, rather, my son's!) on some of these! Now, my son happens to really love his bathtime, but since he bathes so often, it's always fun to find new "toys" for it, and what better than something like adorable soaps shaped like child-friendly objects that are going to provide a chance to have fun and get clean?? And for those of you who have trouble getting your kids to take baths in the first place, these just may prove to be just the right bait to get the job done! I also think they would make awesome stocking stuffers or party favors, as well, not to mention you can choose your shapes (anything from cars & boats to robots & dragonflies), colors & scents! Yes, that's right, they come in different scents, too - choose from green apple, wild berry, cucumber melon, lavender, baby powder, orange or unscented.

From the moment our soaps arrived in the mail, my son instantly knew they were for him and wanted to use them right away. He didn't realize they were for the bath at first, so once we told him that, he was even more excited. He's been thoroughly enjoying "driving" & "flying" them around the tub at bathtime ever since. They're quite large so are easy for little hands to grip, which is convenient (especially for kids like mine who like to do everything themselves!). We received three different shapes (all adorable!) in 3 different fruity scents. The part I really liked was that the scents are not overbearing at all. They left no mess in the tub at all, and hardly lost any of their size, so I think they should last quite a while.

Here is a bit more about Melanie & her business...

How did your business start and when?

Our family recently had to move due to my husband’s job with the military. Since the move I have become a stay at home mom with my 5 year old son. He has been my inspiration for my products. I wanted to create something fun and useful, so we started making soap together. Not only has he enjoyed the soap, but so have many of his friends. After many compliments on how well the soap worked on getting kids into the tub, I thought I would share them with others. With a recommendation from a friend, I started my store on Etsy last month.

How did you come up with your business name?
My business name Mel’s Fun Suds comes from my nickname Mel. As for the Fun Suds, I know how hard it is to get a child in the tub. That is what put the Fun in Suds. Shouldn’t your suds be Fun?

What medium/s do you use to create your products?
I use a melt n pour glycerin that is good for the most sensitive skin. No harsh chemicals!

What sets your business/products apart from others that create similar items?
As a mom, I have found it difficult to find Fun soaps for children, especially, Boys. My products have been inspired by my son. He helps me choose the designs, smells, and even helps give them names. I believe this sets me apart from others because I am using a child’s perspective.

Any other comments, advice, feedback, discounts or otherwise you’d like to share with your blog followers.
I am so excited to start my new business and share my products kid inspired with others. I love to make people happy and this is a great way to do so. These soaps, although kid-inspired, make great gifts for all ages. From party favors to unique gifts, I am willing to customize your event. Please do not hesitate to ask [me any] questions!

Well - they're all fabulous, but I really like the little teddy as well as the duck. I love the colors of them. I can't wait until my son is old enough to use the train ones - so cute! What a great gift idea.
