Thank you to everyone who submitted to Babble’s Lovies Contest! We received 135 adorable entries showcasing the special bond between a child and his favorite toy or blanket. (If you’ve already “liked” Babble on Facebook, you can still check out the submissions here!) Each photo was so cute, and the competition was tough! Readers voted for their favorites on Babble’s main Facebook page and on Babble Toddler’s page, and we tallied up the “likes” from both. We realize there was a good deal of confusion with this contest and that the process did not go as smoothly as we hoped, so we thank you for your feedback, patience, and understanding as we work out the kinks with our contests. We have been working on a new system that will make our future contests much more streamlined, so please stay tuned!
