This time, I enlisted the help of my Obitsu dog to draw the prizes:
The Dog is a really great toy. I named him Kikai (which I think is "machine" in Japanese). I call him Kai. He looks a bit skeletal, but his fantastic articulation gives him a ton of personality. Since I can't seem to get around to writing a review for him, this post will give him some chances to show off.
Liv's Sophie in Wonderland helped with the drawing. There were 43 entries for this contest, which was the most out of all of the drawings.
Kai was reluctant to jump in the bowl the first time...
But once he got up his courage, he discovered that playing in a bowl is pretty fun.
And was quick to grab a name:
The winner of the Abbey Bominable doll is...April W! Congratulations, April!
The prize for Day 2 was a Li'l Woodzeez bakery set:
Of course, the Calico Critters and Li'l Woodzeez wanted to help out with this one. There were 21 entries for this prize.
Now maybe Kai is having too much fun...
He leapt out of the bowl so that the critters could help him unfold the winning name...
...and the winner of the Li'l Woodzeez set is...Linda Irina! Congratulations, Linda!
The prize from Day 3 was a Grace Kelly Barbie:
Jake has been dreaming about reprising his role as the Cheshire Cat, and asked if he could assist with this drawing. There were 29 entries this time. Kai isn't sure what to think about the Cheshire cat...
There was a lot of barking and hissing!
They had a tug-of-war over the winning name, but Jake didn't have much of a chance against Kai's strong jaws.
Luckily, Kai is a good boy, and eventually handed the paper to Jake.
The winner of the Grace Kelley Barbie doll is...Kaitlyn Burke! Congratulations, Kaitlyn!
The prize from Day 4 was a Winx Club Flora doll:
The mini Blythes, feeling a tad maligned by some of the caption contest entries, wanted to get in on the action to prove how sweet and nice they can be. There were 31 entries in the Flora drawing.
The girls wanted to go in and grab the winning name themselves...
But they underestimated the steep edges and were very quickly in over their heads!
...and they dragged up a winning slip of paper.
|Who can it be?|
Of course Rapunzel wanted to help with this drawing, to ensure that the younger version of herself went to a good home. The odds were pretty good with this giveaway...only 7 entries!
Rapunzel politely asked Kai to select a name...
And with so few papers, he could just reach down and grab one:
The winner of the Rapunzel toddler is...Kristina Cain! Congratulations, Kristina!
Ghoulia was excited about getting to choose who Operetta is going to go hang out with. There were 17 entries in this drawing.
Ghoulia got a bit flustered, though, not sure which paper to pick...
|It's a lot of pressure!|
So Kai jumped in and grabbed one for her:
The winner of the Monster High Operetta doll is...Courtney Gibson! Congratulations, Courtney!
|Good job, Kai. Time for a nap.|
Big congratulations to all of the winners! We'll do this again soon.
