  • What better way to celebrate World Book Day than with a competition?

    If your little ones are anything like ours they will love the chance to get dressed up as one of their favourite storybook characters, and we’re pretty sure they’d also love to win a scooter, too!

    We’re giving you the chance to win one of two amazing scooters, plus our runner up will win their own prize bundle too!

    The prizes

    First prize
    To celebrate World Book Day the lovely team at Yvolution are offering you the change to win one of two children’s scooters. We’ve found these little scooters make the school run much less stressful if you walk your kids to school – no more dragging feet!

    The Y Flyer Blue and Y Flyer Red are up for grabs, both of which feature super grip foot plates for ultimate control, a folding frame for easy storage and transport and of course a quick-response hand break for hand stopping.

    Both scooters are suitable for seven years old and above and RRP at £129.99, so it’s time to get entering!

    Runner up prize

    For one lucky runner up we have a whole bundle of goodies to keep the family entertained this spring. We know how hard it can be to keep the tribe happy, but with these fun outdoor games you shouldn’t have too much trouble. Our pals over at Wicked Vision will be treating one lucky family to five outdoor toys, and being active play specialists we don’t think they’ll disappoint. You can hope to win:

  • Mega Bounce XL – the biggest inflatable bouncy ball around
  • Outdoor Boomerang – an impressive boomerang with 15-20m distance
  • Indoor Boomerang – this one can even be played in the house!
  • Sky Spinner – a hand propelled spinning disk to keep you busy in the garden
  • U Kick – with a fusion of badminton and football, bat and kick to keep this little fella off the ground!
  • How do I enter?

    We’ve made it simple, because we know there’s not a lot of time in between the final gluing, sticking and sewing of costumes and the school run where you’ve got to fit Humpty Dumpty in the car somehow (note to self: never again).

    Just snap a picture of your little one(s) in their World Book Day costume(s) and tell us why they chose their idea. Then send it our way via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or email.
