Back to School with Sidekix Review & Giveaway

Have you heard about Sidekix? They are the cutest toy that you can kick 'em, zip 'em, flip 'em, clip 'em and stick 'em. We were given Bamboo, the Panda to review. Ever since we saw the pandas at the zoo, my son has an infatuation with them.! So I was happy to surprise him with his sidekix.
At first, he tossed it around then when he unzipped it he realized there was a little furry friend inside. He immediately clipped it to his bookbag ready to go! The great thing about the Sidekix is that they can be clipped to a bag or belt and even stick to any metal since they have magnets in the arms/legs.
There are currently five different animals to choose from. They retail for $9.99.

One lucky reader will get a chance to win their very own Sidekix.
