our instagram challenge

instagram crochetWe LOVE instagram and we know a lot of you do too!  So, each week in August we are giving away a $50 gift voucher for our little store to the winner of the best photo posted to instagram using the #rudyandthedodochallenge hashtag.

We are all about kids making and doing, rather than spectating.

We want to see photos of your kids off the couch, exploring and creating, questioning and building, pretending, painting, playing and learning.

Simply upload your photos using the #rudyandthedodochallenge hashtag.  If you happen to include any products purchased from our store (not compulsory – totally optional!) be sure to include the brand hashtag eg #seedling #djeco #janod

Each week after selecting our favourite and most creative entry, we will post the winning photo on our blog.

Follow us on http://instagram.com/rudyandthedodo/

Here are some of our own favourite shots to help get you inspired!

win! and stop nagging today …

I don’t know about the rest of you (oh, hang on, yes I do! We are all the same boat) but I spend a large part of each and every day gently reminding my children to;

  • Flush the Toilet
  • Wipe the Seat
  • Wash Your Hands
  • Play Nice
  • Share Your Toys
  • Go Play Outside

On average, I probably say each of these phrases, oh, about 76 times a day.

So imagine my delight when I stumbled across this terribly clever artist who prints up my nagging requests and makes fabulous décor out of them.

win a money monster money box!

tigeroy money box both low res

Money burns a hole in my kids’ pockets.  They have bank accounts but don’t yet really appreciate what it means to see the balance climbing.  I reckon these little Money Monsters are JUST the ticket to get my little guys saving with enthusiasm!

They are due to land in store within 2 weeks.  To celebrate, we thought we would give one away to one of you adoring and terribly fabulous fans!

These little fellows say 25 funny things. They come in green, grey or pink and have girl and boy voices. They even do a groovy dance with their monster eye and ears when you feed them.

Money monsters gobble up coins and notes and they complain when you empty their bellies or forget to feed them! A built in sensor detects when you’re near and they call our for “more money!” Saving pocket money has never been so much fun. Battery operated, durable and light weight – what’s not to love?

Which one would you choose, and why?

Let us know by commenting below and you will go into the draw to win the colour of your choice.  The winner will be drawn on Thursday 4th April at 10.00am EST and will be notified here on the blog. Open to Australian residents only.
