12 Giveaway-Days of Christmas December 14, 2010

Just this very minute, we kicked off a new contest at the YooHoo & Friends Facebook page! For the next 12 days (through December 25, 2010), we will giveaway one YooHoo & Friends themed prize pack every day to one winner. We know a couple things that will be in each pack — I see a plush “clip-on” that looks an awful lot like one of these guys:

YooHoo & Friends "Clip-Ons"


And that coveted YooHoo & Friends mousepad that everyone so desires:

Plusssssss……a couple other goodies 😀

But since it’s the season of giving and sharing…we think the winner should promise to share just one item from the prize pack with a friend, family member etc. That seems fair! And it’s really easy to enter…for more information, just visit http://www.facebook.com/yoohoofanpage and read the note titled “12 Giveaway-Days of Christmas”.

Good luck!
