Fisher-Price is launching a contest of animal proportions today with help from celebrity zoologist and children’s television show host, Jarod Miller. Appropriately named the Little People™ Animal Sounds Contest, the contest calls on parents to submit a video of their child demonstrating his or her best roar, grrrr or squawk (oh my!) for the chance to win a $10,000 cash prize and a trip to Fisher-Price headquarters in East Aurora, N.Y. (for a special photo shoot and an opportunity to have their child featured on a Little People® toy package or website).
It’s easy for parents to help their children ages one to five to get their imaginations soaring and their voices roaring! Parents simply visit the contest website www.animalsounds.fisher-price.com to get started:
1. Grab a video device like a smart phone iPhone® or Android™ mobile device, digital camera or camcorder
2. Record a 20 second or less video (in AVI, MOV, MPEG or WMV format; no larger than 30MB) of a child age 1-5 making his or her best zoo animal sound of one of the following animals: lion, tiger, elephant, bear, penguin, rhinoceros, leopard, whale, polar bear, hippopotamus, monkey, seal, gorilla, alligator, zebra, giraffe, ostrich, dolphin, snake, or bird
3. Submit the video in one of three ways: Via the contest website, iPhone App or Android App (limit five contest entries per person/email address)
4. Share the website link with friends and family so they can visit the public gallery to vote
“The Fisher-Price Animal Sounds Contest encourages children to bring animals they love to life in a way that’s very natural for their age,” said Miller. “I've gravitated towards animals for as long as I can remember. Like me, kids are amazed by the beauty and diversity of living things and love to use their imaginations and senses to emulate their favorite animals. This promotion and the Zoo Talkers line connect them to animals in a very enriching way.”
The Animal Sounds contest runs Aug. 1, 2011 through 11:59 p.m. ET on Nov. 30, 2011
Lucky me we were able to review the Little People Zoo Talkers toy! I could write all about how fun it is but I thought a couple of videos of my 3.5 year old and my 9 month old playing with it would be better!
As you can see the Little People Zoo is a HUGE hit in my house! We love Little People and especially love that the other people and animals also work with this set! They have more animals that are sold separately.
**I was given the above toy to help facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. The joy and enthusiasm are 100% real and all opinions are my own**
