Mattel makes big computer fun for kids

Category Contests

Today’s contest is going to be so much fun, because today I’m lucky enough to have two hot toys for this holiday season. And I do love playing Santa.

First up, we have the Girl Tech Stylin’ Studio, which includes a web cam and a touchpad console. Take a picture of yourself, then makeover, accessorize, or just plain have fun. Mail your completed works to friends, or print ’em out. Fabulous fun for girls ages 8+.

Second, we have the U.B. Funkeys Dream State Starter Kit with Bones and Drift. This is one of those games where plugging in and using the various figures allows you to access games online, and I’m told the Daydream and Nightmare zones are wicked cool. (Take that opinion for all it’s worth—it came from a 9-year-old.) More U.B. Funkeys figures can be added later to gain access to other areas, but this is everything you need to get started. Fun for boys or girls ages 8+.

Two lucky Want Not readers are going to be chosen at random to win these toys! Want a shot at it? To be entered, simply leave a comment on this post by 3:00 p.m. Eastern time (noon Pacific) on Wednesday, November 5th, 2008, telling me which one you’d like to win. Entries must be made with a valid email address; one entry per person; failure to select one of the two choices will disqualify your entry. Winners to be determined by random number generation and ability to work the phrase “U.B. Funkey!” into everyday speech. (Not sure how I’m going to monitor that. Maybe I’ll just rely on the random number thing….)

Ready? Go!
