GIVEAWAY: $100 gift certificate to MODTOTS!

Are you ready for some clean, modern, and minimalist art for the nursery? Enter: ModTots by Modern Bird! When Megan from ModTots offered to let me pick out a piece for baby Gordon, I jumped! I went with Harrison the Fox but I am also dying over the owl and the zebra and the robots, oh the robots!

So what do you think? Do you want one for your baby’s room? Or even for the living room? Because I kinda want to put one in every room. Find out more about ModTots, how you can get a ModTot character named after your tot, and what you have to do to enter this rad giveaway after the jump.
Each ModTots design starts as an original illustration by artist, Gregg Deal, and is created with a combination of digital, hand, and painting processes on an Oak composite, much like the original Modern Bird Studios pieces.  Each piece is handmade, one at a time, with love and consideration going into every one.  You are invited to browse around and select the right pieces that will assist your little ones on their path towards amazing style, great taste, and popularity!

If you are the first to purchase a specific piece, you get naming rights! Just provide a couple sentences to describe your child for the description of the piece. Also, if you have a blog, ModTots will include the link in the description so visitors to our site can learn more about you and your child. Megan and Greg, ModTots owners, have already claimed the bird for their daughter Sage and the bear for their son Phoenix but since they are adding new artwork all the time, there are still lots of unnamed pieces!

Here’s what you need to do to enter this giveaway. Head on over to ModTots and scope out the collection. Then come back here and tell us your fave item, what you would name him/her and a fun fact or two about the little tyke. Here’s mine:

Clare the Moomwalk Robot:

Clare love bugs but only toy bugs and bugs on TV. Real bugs terrify her. If given the option, she would eat a bean burrito at every meal. Her favorite ice cream flavor is butter brickle.

Leave your comment anytime between now and midnight next Wednesday February 23rd. We will randomly select a winner and announce next week. Tweet, stumble, and/or share the giveaway on facebook and leave another comment each time letting us know for an additional entry. Come back every day for new entries. Good luck! Winner must be 18+ and have a US mailing address.




Riley the Raccoon: Riley loves the color green. He tries to keep things very clean, he even washes his food before eating it. If Riley had his way, everybody would be able to touch the clouds and they would taste like cotton candy. His favorite number is 16.


Smudge the Panda. He is a philosopher who notices the details. While you might think Smudge would like bamboo or rice for dinner, he would be delighted to find a piece of Godiva chocolate cheesecake.


Eilene the Sleepy Giraffe with Orange background.
She likes to nap with her favorite little human and play outdoors with the birdies!


Atticus, the Agile Monkey. He is a lovable acrobat who adores Reese cups and kale greens. He is accompanied by Milo, the Fussy Norwhal, whose hobbies include eating Ben and Jerrys and chewing on the furniture.


Jude the Monkey, but I would call him Bobo the Monkey! Our youngest son's nickname is Bobo and this petulant little monkey reminds me so much of him! However, I am super psyched to see the coming-soon dinosaurs!!! We are dino-crazy in this house. And I'm about to redo the boys' room in dinosaurs so this could be a great find!


Zed the rhino, for my son kaden zed. Who loves to run on all fours through the house with mo pants on. If there was a black panther, I'd have to pick that one because that's what he pretends he is all the time!


Riley the Raccoon–he likes oranges and M&Ms;, but NOT pickles. He also loves to read and to pretend to be a truck driver.


molly the fox is mischievous. for my daughter who loves lollipops and hermit cookies..oh my!

Enoch the Pop-&-Lock robot loves to cook and play with his brothers. He jumps EVERYWHERE he goes — and if you try to stop him, he says he absolutely NEEDS to jump!


Sharon (mama to Adam)

Adam the Pop In Lock Robot! I love robots, but I have to say I am super antsy for the monsters. My little man practices his monster noises on a daily basis. The other silly thing he does is move his arms like a chicken and attempts to "bok bok" (the noise a chicken makes, or at least his mommy makes to sound like a chicken). He gets super excited and flings his arms and legs around while doing the chicken.

Mommy to Cruz

Cruz the Incredibot…Cruz just turned 2 and is OBSESSED with robots, or in his vernacular, "Bobots!" Cruz is a dancer and a singer who is always coming up with new moves. Cruz makes sure Mommy gets enough exercise by dragging her to the living room to sing and dance along with him!


The fox is just fantastic 😉 My kids BOTH liked the Fantastic Mr. Fox movie, and it is rather rare they agree on a movie… Thanks for the chance!


Evan the Robot – He tries to be good but sometimes his wires get crossed and he tries to take over the world with his evil robot screaming. But at heart he's definitely a Hug-bot.

Actually, I'm holding out for the monsters. Did you know there are going to be monsters?? I'M SO EXCITED!


Theo the Jackhammer Robot: He loves classical music and playing the ukelele. He is shy at first meeting new people but warms up quickly and is a hit wherever he goes. Theo loves to snuggle with his beloved blankie, is good at sharing (most of the time–except when he needs to take a nap) and loves waffles.

Harper loves birds and ducks, but I also really like the owl. I would go with Harper the Hoot Owl becuase our Harper truly is a HOOT!
She loves:
yogurt and blueberries
playing at any playground
taking a bath
painting at daddy's desk (drafting table)
walking to the beach to see the ducks & birds


Loving Nautilus the Narwhale. Can you tell I just finished reading some Jules Vern? Do you really think that sweet whale could sink ships? I don't think so!

All the designs are fantasticly simple and yet delightful! I'm a fan!


OOH-AH the Monkey
That is what my son calls Monkeys..
These are great, clean and modern for sure! Would fit right into @ my home:)


Sigh, my Harrison would love that fox, actually! But I think the windmill robot is fabulous, too. She devours sweet and salty combinations, like chocolate covered road salt. Then she gets her groove on, doing the Robot, of course. Since Harrison already has a namesake of sorts, she'll be called Lilah.


I love love love Pierce the Giraffe! My son's room is done in multiple animal prints and I specifically love the giraffes. This would be perfect, thanks for the chance to win!


Ellie the Panda would be welcome to come live at our house. She loves reading, eating pasta and yogurt, and dancing to every beat she hears.


Yes, oh the Robots!! Marvelous Markus the Robot for my son! He loves robots, space and anything he can build.
Luna Lauren the Owl for my daughter! She is creative, peaceful and loves nature.
What a fun addition these would be for their rooms! Love them all!!!

Ellie the Elephant! My daughter and son both adored elephants as a baby.. fav toy was a elephant! Ellie is their to protect them and keep them company!

Macki West

Um, Narwhal, of course! I stumbled upon this and had to see what that thing is. What I found out is pure perfection, unicorn of the sea, living in the arctic?! My daughter is OBSESSED with unicorns and dolphins and the North Pole. I am just obsessed with this print, which I will name horny.

Then there's the owl, and my son looks like an owl, seriously. Big head floppy hair and huge eyes. Owl will be named Bear, just because.
