Ohhh I’m so excited about this, and it’s SUCH a shame that my niece is now far too big for Barbie, because when she was younger she would have adored one of these incredible prizes.
As you know, I’m a Royal Caribbean Family Ambassador, and one of the best things about cruising with Royal is that they offer Barbie experiences on board their ships. Fashion shows, tea parties, dressing up as Barbie *sighs wistfully*.
So I’ve teamed up with them to offer you the opportunity to win some FAB Barbie goodies.
1st prize: Barbie cruise ship (I KNOW!)
With this cruise ship, kids can play out the perfect family vacation — on the “water” or docked at shore. The side panel of the large-scale boat opens to reveal an additional deck below and expands the play space to 3.5 feet. With areas for dining, playing, lounging, and sleeping, this delightful cruise ship lets children sail away into imagination and play. I WANT ONE!
2nd prize: A Barbie ballerina doll
The winner of the second prize will win one of these gorgeous Barbies, representing the classical ballets Giselle and Swan Lake. The best thing is they have articulated legs and you can make them dance – simply push the doll down into a plié.
3rd prize: A Barbie stationery backpack
This is so cool, and it comes complete with a ring binder and writing accessories, making it ideal for travelling, or when they go back to school.
How to enter:
Simply leave your answer to the following question below by the closing time on the closing date, 11.59pm on Wednesday 21 August. The three winners will be chosen at random and the prizes will be awarded in the order the numbers are chosen. No correspondence will be entered into and the usual The Mum Blog competition rules also apply.
Q: If you could take your family anywhere on a cruise, where would you go?
Thank you everyone who entered. The winners, chosen by random, are:
Barbie Cruise Ship: Linda Hobbis
Barbie ballerina doll: Natalie One Busy WAHM
Barbie stationery pack: Joanna Smith
Congratulations all! Please send me your details via the contact form on this blog and I’ll arrange for your prizes to be sent to you.
Ooh – so excited. Thanks so much. Will send address! xxx
Thank you everyone who entered. Entries are now closed and the winners will be announced in due course.
