Competition: Win Miniland Science Kits

As I’ve mentioned before, my very first credit account to run a business came from DKL Marketing Ltd, distributors of the wonderful Hama Beads. Over the years we’ve worked closely with them and sell all their lovely toy ranges on PlayMerrily Toys. Recently, I’m delighted to have become their blogger on their brand new sparkly blog and am helping them out as they navigate the strange and weird world of Facebook and Twitter. They have a competition (which ends tomorrow night) on the DKL Talk About Toys blog to win a gorgeous tractor and digger garden toy which I highly recommend you enter.

I’m blogging there this week about using science kits with children, having tried out some of the Miniland Educational kits with the girls over the last few weeks.

Since we’ve just added the kits to PlayMerrily, I thought you might like a chance to win some here.

One lucky winner will receive a large kit (up to Β£24) of their choice plus one tinned kit of their choice from the PlayMerrily Miniland range and 4 further winners will receive random tinned kits from my stash. There is no cash alternative.

There is a Facebook album of kits on our page and you can like pictures of any kits that appeal to you. This will not make it more likely you win, but it might help me send you a prize you like if you do win!

To enter:-

Leave a comment in the box below with a valid email address (not published).

If you share this competition on Facebook, Twitter, G+ or a forum, leave another comment to let us know. You can also gain an extra entry by liking the Facebook page or following us on Twitter (links to these are on the top right of the site.) You are responsible for notifying us via separate comments of each share and join.

Competition is not open to employees of DKL Marketing LTD or PlayMerrily and is only open to residents of the United Kingdom.

Winners will be drawn (using WP Plugin And the Winner is…) on June 8th 2012. Competition closes at midnight 7th June 2012 and no entries after that time will be included.

Winner will have one week to contact us with a postal address; in the event of no contact, we will redraw.

    Educational toys are a fun creative way for a child to gain knowledge and transfer skills later on in life.

    Should have liked and shared on Facebook – I’ve succesfully done this before to promote your site but appear to have regressed in my technical abililities today :-( Must try harder (seems to be a phrase I’ve seen written about me somewhere before!) ;o)
