One is silver and the other gold

Today’s contest gives you the chance to win either a great set of new DVDs for your kids, or a great set of DVDs maybe you (or your parents) enjoyed as kids. One has new friends, the other old. One is silver… and you get the point, so I’ll stop, now.

Today you need to decide between the following prizes: Your first choice is The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet: Best of Ricky and Dave, which is a 4-DVD set spanning 24 episodes across the series’ run. Did you have a crush on Ricky when you were younger? C’mon, fess up—I won’t tell anyone. It’ll be just between you, me and the entire Internet. What?

Your second choice is a complete set of the new educational hit Global Wonders, a series of multi-cultural DVDs for your little one(s). This includes all four discs: Around the World, Mexico, India, and African-American.

For your chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post by 3:00 p.m. Eastern (noon Pacific) on Wednesday, October 29th, 2008. One entry per person, valid email address required, and to win a prize you must tell me which set you’d rather receive. Winners to be determined by random number generation and ability to spell Quetzalcoatl correctly. (I feel like there’s a flaw in that plan, somehow. I’m just not quite sure what it is….)

Ready? Go!
