Win a monster finger puppet!
What kid - or indeed, what well-adjusted adult - wouldn't want to look like a monster is eating his head? That's the thinking behind the delightfully eccentric Massachusetts company My Monster Hat.
Snap up one of these custom-made head-gobbling monsters, and you get to control every detail right down to whether (for a more manic look) one eye is bigger than the other...or (say, your monster's more the settled type), not.
What's not to love about that, right? But wait, it gets better. For mymonsterhat.com operates on a 'zero discard' policy. That means that every little scrap of fabric gets used - either to make particularly out-there, one-of-a-kind monster hats, or to stuff plush monsters, or - and this is where it gets really good - to make monster finger puppets.
Monster finger puppets which, we are delighted to say, you can now be in with a chance of winning. Yes, Anne, the kind monster-maker behind My Monster Hat, has a monster finger puppet to send to each of 12 Babygadget readers - and what's more, she's promised to decorate the envelopes too, just to ensure your holiday post is really extra exciting.
All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is head over to the My Monster Hat Facebook fan page and leave a comment naming your favourite monster. It could be the Gruffalo, King Kong, Godzilla... or something more original. The comment must also mention that you arrived there via Babygadget.
Comment before Friday the 3rd of December, when Anne will choose her favourite responses, to be in with a chance of winning. This offer is open to Babygadget readers all over the world - hooray!
The small print: Please note that due to the googly eyes, monster finger puppets are not suitable for the under-threes.
