  1. Long list of rules, covered everything I think. Would love this for my kids!

  2. Melissa Keith

    Never dreamed of such an opportunity. This is awesome. Good luck everyone!!!

  3. The fact that you have to write such lengthy rules, covering “defamation, slander, death…etc.”, truly shows what our country has become. So many jump at the chance to sue for one thing or another. It seems though that you have really covered everything there is to cover, and the rules are fair and easy to understand. I will pass this contest on to my daughters, who I know will share the joy of winning with less unfortunate children than their own. I wish everyone good luck!!


    My husband just became disabled, so now we rely on only Social Security, I have 3 grandchildren and Christmas is looking pretty bleak this year. I would love to give my grandchildren a few of the toys then donate the rest to “Toys for Tots’ Merry Christmas to you all!
