Winners of our Half Term Kid's Competition

Last week we asked children to send us poems or stories about their favourite tv characters and we had a great time reading them all! In the end we chose 5 winners, who each won a Peppa Pig Ladybird book from Toyjeanius. Our favourite entry came from Jessica, aged 8, who sent us a Horrid Henry poem complete with picture. Our team of judges (my teenage children) were very impressed with Jessica as she entered the competition hoping to win something for her friend Millie who is in hospital at the moment, so we're hoping she likes the little extra surprise we sent with the book! Well done Jessica:-)

Our youngest entrant was the four year old son of one of our followers at Twitter, Piperty. He's obviously a big Sonic fan, but we hope that he likes Peppa Pig too!

"Sonic is as speedy as he can be, Sonic is beautiful!"

The judges were all agreed that 5 year old Alex should win a prize, as everyone thought his poem was very funny! (one of the judges even snorted with laughter just like Daddy Pig!) He was also 1 of only 2 entrants to include a Peppa Pig character in his poem!

"I love Bob The Builder, and Winnie The Pooh of course, but my fave is Daddy Pig, especially when he snorts!"

Sarah aged 7 from Lincs sent us this lovely Winnie the Pooh poem. I'm a huge Winnie the Pooh fan so i made sure the judges noticed this entry;-)
I love winnie the pooh
and I think tigger is great
I think its funny what they do for hunny
and they are best mates

When we read the poem Robert, aged 9 from Aberdeen sent us, all our judges said that they wished they had an older brother like him! Abigail is a very lucky little girl having such a wonderful brother!

Thomas the tank is the best
and I like Percy and James
the fat controller is in charge
as they go along the rails
my little sister loves Peppa pig
so I want to win for abigail

Well done to all our competition winners, and thankyou to everyone else who sent us their poems and stories! They were all fantastic and the judges had a really hard time choosing the winners!

Valentines Day Cupcake Challenge

Everwhere i look today i keep seeing mention of the Great Cupcake Challenge  and i know my daughter would never forgive me if i didn't give her a mention! My 17 year old is the Queen of cupcakes and is in charge of making cakes for the whole family (although i think i may have to make one for her 18th!). She decided to celebrate Valentines Day by making this GIANT cupcake....hands up who wants a piece;-)
