This special Saturday post is for my first giveaway.
I haven’t done one of these before, not because there haven’t been offers (female sexual arousal oil, anyone?) but I am not a giveaway blog (and won’t become one — no worries) and didn’t want to participate in one unless someone came to me with something I could get behind. And I can get behind chocolate, as chocolate has a warm and intimate relationship with my behind. I can also get behind free and discounted toys for my readers, which bring us to now.
This year, Mattel is doing a Save The Bunny campaign for Easter. They have partnered with the Endangered Chocolate Bunny Coalition (hell yes) and are asking us to fill our kids’ Easter baskets with toys instead of chocolate bunnies.
Convenient, eh, MATTEL?! J’ACCUSE!!!!
But no, for serious, here’s why this isn’t complete crazy talk:
- Giving toys encourages creative play that lasts longer than any chocolate bunny. Also, giving toys IN ADDITION to chocolate bunnies keeps them occupied twice as long as chocolate bunnies alone. That’s some truth right there.
- You know what else toys last longer than? Sugar rushes that lead to a house full of insane children covered in Easter egg dye who don’t believe that the Easter egg hunt ended hours ago and tear your house apart with cheeks full of Peeps.
- More chocolate bunnies for Mom and Dad. Aw, yeah! Can I get a high-five?! Oh wait…that’s the opposite of what they’re trying to do here, right? Shit. I suck at this.
Instead of having to rummage through the $1 aisle at Target or the Seasonal aisle at Walgreens the day before Easter (NOT THAT I HAVE DONE THAT) Mattel will be giving away a free toy every single day till March 31st at the Save The Bunny website, and every entry automatically goes into the pool for a $4000 grand prize! Can you imagine how many chocolate bunnies you could buy with $4000?! Damn. I really am no good at this. They should have gotten someone slightly less supportive of chocolate eating.
AND, they have coupons on the site that are good at Target, Walmart, Fred Meyer, and my mom’s house. (Just kidding. Don’t go hassle my mom. The poor woman has nothing left but cursing at CNN.)
Let’s face it. Those bunnies have had a hell of a good run. It’s time to give Uno a piece of the action.
