You Can be Santa and Win A PS3 and Wonderbook Move Bundle!

Pin It

*** THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED ***
Check out the amazing entry below that won!

My boys wrote their letters to Santa ages ago, all the way back in October after we had been invited to the Playstation Playground event. And the reason for their early penning? They wanted to be sure that they got on the list for The Wonderbook™: Book of Spells.

You see they were seriously crushing on this new game from Playstation and they had HUGE concerns that Santa would be asked for so many of these this Christmas that his supplies would run out. So they kind of figured first in would be best dressed and all that!

Of course in a typical parenting technique of mine, I’ve been taking full advantage of their special Christmas wish and like a carrot to a donkey I have been waving it under their nose whenever their behaviour went a little too left field for my liking.

I got a few months mileage out of this, until last week when Santa well and truly came early to our house.

When a special package from the awesome team at Sony Playstation arrived last week for my boys, you could have heard them squealing like a bunch of little girls, anywhere within a 50km radius (only a very slight exaggeration). It contained the very one thing they have been lusting after. The Wonderbook™: Book of Spells for PS3™

My youngest is now convinced that our courier is Santa on holidays and is even planning to bake him some Cookies and give him a beer next time he visits. The neighbours are really gonna start talking!


So why all the excitement, and what’s with all the fuss? Um helloooo this is at THE TOP of the wish list for my boys and all their friends this year.

The Wonderbook™: Book of Spells for PS3™ lets you *ahem* I mean your kids really be a part of the action. It literally brings the game to life and your child is the central character in the game AND on the screen.
Yep like really on the screen. 


It is suitable for any age, so yes you too can go and get all hocus pocus and the most exciting part of this game is that the special webcam that comes in the pack, transports onto the TV screen and right in the thick of all the magic and wizardry.

You can see more here about how it all works here.


Now if you are a Harry Potter fan you are going to be completely beside yourself as The Wonderbook™: Book of Spells allows you to feast your goggles on some new and exclusive writing from J.K. Rowling.

As you work through the story, the Wonderbook really comes to life, and using the special PlayStation®Move Motion Controller as your own magic wand, you can cast 20 spells from the world of Harry Potter(TM).

Is that totally cool or what??

CONGRATULATIONS 
to Tawhi Kirk

I would totally give Tawhi a freaking book deals based on this awesome poem she wrote. I have to share it with you guys.

Ever since I was a child,
I've been enchanted by Rowlings world.
I would spend my days pretending,
I was a muggle born magic girl!

If I had the power of witch craft,
And my Motion Controller could cast a spell.
I'd make quite a few enchantments,
And I'd surely use them well!

So in my secret dungeon,
Hidden well in Hogwarts grounds.
I would firstly make a potion,
That can swiftly mute all sounds.

With delicious notes of chocolate,
It would erase the power of speech.
As a mother it would be prefect.
Think of the lessons it would teach.

You could enjoy your favourite movie.
No more chatter in your ears.
And it wears off at the credits,
Before your child starts the tears!

Next I'd cast a spell,
That would be a hit with all the mums.
It's called "Stretchmarksarenolonger".
And is used on legs and tum's.

With a little bit of magic,
Belly stretch marks are no more.
All those lines and scars are taken.
Magically ushered out the door!

Then finally I'll take my cauldron,
Mix in a pinch of Fairy Dust.
The feather of a Phoenix.
And a Troll hair is a must.

Stir these well until I've created,
A curse that effects the world.
It's called Worldwide Peace and Harmony.
And will effect all boys and girls.

A cure for the sick and dying.
It'll bring prosperity to the poor.
Turn the bad to good,
And show all evil out the door.

I would love to be a wizard.
If even only for a night!
Think of all the good that could be created.
And all the bad whisked out of sight!

Congratulations Tawhi - I so want your spell.  Can you please email me at lifelovehiccups@optusnet.com.au with your details so we can arrange your prize.
