Who hasn’t dreamed of a Mini-Me to call our own? A pint-sized replica who can lend a tiny ear when you need a good listener or sit in for you on those Skype conferences while you run to the kitchen for a snack. Bleacher Creatures—the creator of incredibly true-to-life plush figures of top sports and entertainment icons—may have the answer to your dreams!
I’m excited to offer this two-part giveaway and contest, courtesy of Bleacher Creatures:
- Giveaway: First, browse through bleachercreatures.com and choose your favorite 10-inch-tall plush Bleacher Creature—will it be a sports star like Peyton Manning, Derek Jeter, or Kobe Bryant? Or an iconic entertainment figure like Batman, Bilbo Baggins, or Rocky Balboa? Then leave a comment to tell me which one you would want and why. I’ll pick one reader to receive the Bleacher Creatures of their choice!
- Mini-Me Contest: Then visit http://www.bleachercreatures.com/landing-pages/selfie-contest.html to enter the “Win a Bleacher Creature…of You!” contest, where you’ll have a chance to win a custom-made Bleacher Creature of yourself!
Now through January 5th, 2015, Bleacher Creatures invites you to take a selfie with any Bleacher Creatures plush figure of your choice and post it on Twitter (tagging @bcreaturetoys), on Facebook (www.facebook.com/bcreaturetoys) or on Instagram (tagging @bcreaturetoys), using the hashtag #MakeMeACreature.
A winner, selected at random by Bleacher Creatures, will be chosen to have a 10-inch Bleacher Creature plush made of him- or herself—a prize worth $5,000, the cost of creating one custom master plush.
To get into the spirit, watch this hilarious short video The Process, which demonstrates the “scientific” process by which Bleacher Creatures plush are made. (Note the Philly cheesesteak that goes into the making of Philadelphia Flyers center Claude Giroux…!)
