I’m always looking for fun and unique stocking stuffers for my kids. The Tickle Me Plant counts as both. This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winners: jandescheid@, tootyflutey@, rikievans@

We’re kind of education geeks around here. My kids floored my mom at the Thanksgiving table last week when they were discussing the history of the world and where certain plants grow.

I don’t think we talked about those things at Thanksgiving dinner when I was a kid. Please pass the potatoes.

Whether your kids are factoid generators or not, they’ll probably love a Tickle Me Plant. It’s a plant that moves when you touch it! Crazy and fun — and perfect for a stocking.

Some factoids* about the Tickle Me Plant:

  • The TickleMe Plant has also been called the “Plant that plays dead”, “Shy Plant”, “Humble Plant”, “Sleeping Grass”, “Touch-Me-Not”, “Noli Me Tangere” , “Sensitive Plant” and “Modest Princess.”
  • Mimosa pudica is its scientific name.
  • TickleMe Plants are native to some tropical regions.
  • TickleMe Plants can grow beautiful pink flowers after several months (usually during the summer.)
  • TickleMe Plants can grow several feet tall and wide.
  • Scientists are not exactly sure what causes the TickleMe Plant’s movements.
  • Seeds of the TickleMe Plant have been known to still germinate (grow) after 19 years.
  • Maybe you can help them discover why these movements occur!

Very cool! And what’s more cool is when your child can grow one of his own. Ours hasn’t quite matured, but I’m sure it will be a blast for my littler ones once it does.

  1. Kathy in Illinois says:

    You are such a fun mom, Jessica! I hope you let us know what your littles do when they “tickle” the plant!!! I can’t wait!
    God bless, Kathy in Illinois

  2. I can’t enter because I live in Canada :-(( but can you please tell us where you order these from? Maybe they’d like to offer your readers a coupon code (hint, hint) haha!

  3. This made me laugh – we have this stuff growing throughout the lawns here in SE Texas. The kids love to play with it, but it is hard to get rid of! If I could pull it all up, I’d ship it out to any takers! ; )

  4. This sounds like something my daughter would love, and perhaps if I kept my brown thumb away from it, it might actually live! LOL

  5. My brothers and I were given these several times during our childhood, they were so much fun! I’m guessing in the cold north and with our lack of attention they didn’t survive from one Christmas to the next but it was always something we loved to receive.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
