LEGO DUPLO Creative Cakes Giveaway


I've really enjoyed being part of the jury panel for the LEGO DUPLO How Do You Play competition. Next week I'll be helping to judge all of the finalists in the last round, which will decide who will win a holiday to Billund in Denmark to the original LEGOLAND.


If you haven't yet entered, you only have 2 more days to do so! It's incredibly easy, you just film your children playing with their DUPLO. We want to see imagination and creativity in action. Submit your video of no more than 30 seconds to the app. on the LEGO DUPLO Facebook page.
 

My first DUPLO Giveaway to win the Creative Picnic set still has 2 weeks to run (you can enter here), and my second DUPLO giveaway is the Creative Cakes set 6785. Suitable for children from age 2, it has 55 chunky pieces which are too big to swallow, and includes everything you need to enjoy an afternoon tea party or recreate a birthday.


Birthdays are very important to children, and they learn a lot from them. It teaches about passage of time and celebration, it allows the child to feel very special and valued. Birthdays will form some of your child's earliest permanent memories. Being able to 'play' birthdays is huge fun for children and gives them a real starting point for some fantastic imaginative play and story-telling.


The Creative Cakes set has a recommended retail price of £19.99 and is an ideal starter set for a child new to LEGO DUPLO, or a brilliant addition to bricks you already have.


As I have to pay postage the giveaway is UK only, my apologies to everyone else. Entry to the giveaway is by rafflecopter form below. The first question is mandatory and must be answered as a comment to this post. Extra entries can be gained by completing additional tasks within the rafflecopter form. Please read the additional terms and conditions at the bottom of the rafflecopter form. This giveaway will end at midnight Friday 6th June when the timer will end and no more entries will be allowed.

I was sent the Creative Cakes set by LEGO DUPLO to do with as I wished. I believe it will not get full use here for much longer as my youngest child is now 4 and already quite competent with little LEGO, so I'm passing it on.
