I’m excited!

Not because I was actually finally brave enough to wax my own moustache, although I am still feeling ridiculously smug about that.

I’m excited because I have managed to secure an awesome GIVEAWAY for one of my lucky readers.  With Christmas around the corner this awesome prize pack is sure to make one lucky families festive season extra fun…and I know because the kids and I were lucky enough to win our own one a few weeks ago.

Drum roll please…you know how much  I love to create drama and suspense…

Up for grabs I have…

Not just the uDraw game tablet, but THREE fantastic games to play with it to, for hours, weeks, months of peace and quiet  fun.!  I meant fun, honestly.

I know!  Pretty awesome right?

The Woo (5) and Foghorn (3) have had hours of fun on the udraw tablet with the uDraw Studio game.  What’s more they get so engrossed in creating their little visual masterpiece on our big lounge room TV that they have QUIET FUN!  Woo Hoo!  Y’gotta love that!

And unlike parking them in front of the TV while I get some jobs done, or prepare the meals, I can enjoy that hour of peace and quiet absolutely guilt free, knowing that they are interacting in a way that requires them to explore their creativity and develop and improve their hand-eye co-ordination.

Really ladies, I have to give it to the good people at THQ, this Wii accessory really ticks all the boxes for me.

As you may already know I recently took my brood on a week’s holiday to my parents house…my parents very clean, super tidy house.  (Not at all what my children are used to!)  Luckily my parents have a Wii console so I was able to pack the uDraw tablet and uDraw Studio disc in my luggage…as back up in the event of a rainy day.  It is light and compact and took up next to no room.

The boys were able to paint, and colour, and draw, and stamp with a whole multitude of mediums and palettes without making so much as a smudge of mess in their grandparents home!  Phew!  They were even able to save their best creations and print them out later to take pride of place on Nana’s fridge…and the not so good ones didn’t need to pile up in an untidy mass of crumpled papers on top of the fridge (because you feel to guilty to have a purge and get rid of them!!!)  Yeah, you know what I’m talking about!

But don’t be fooled by my little darlings works of art.  The uDraw game tablet is not merely childs play.  For a look at what it is really capable of you can watch artist David Kassan ‘having a go.’

                  

Uh, yeah!  Impressive stuff, eh?

Whilst the Studio game is very much a solitary pastime, the tablet can also be utilised in a group setting.  THQ have taken everyone’s favourite party game Pictionary and turned it into a game for the Wii.  The graphics are fantastic and fun and you are able to chose between easy and hard clues, so it is perfect to play as a family or even with a few glasses of wine and some friends!

(I am particularly fond of this game, because the Woo and I won at the blogger brunch we attended which is how we got our own tablet, and I managed to attain the status of Pictionary Queen in my five year old’s eyes…even if his admiration only lastest for one day.  Please believe me when I say that I WANT to keep this game for myself…but I won’t!)

Anyway, enough about me…that’s get down to how you can get your creative little mits on this fantastic prize pack.
