Win $1,000 In Our Elefun & Friends Silly Kids Photo Contest


Winners Announced Here.

Oh those silly, imaginative kids. They sure can leave us in stitches can’t they? Even on our most trying days, kids have this way of changing the mood and erupting everyone into laughter within a matter of seconds.

Whether it’s something silly they say, a silly outfit they decide to wear, a silly joke they share or a silly face they make……nobody else can make us laugh quite like they can.

The Elefun & Friends collection from Hasbro is all about getting in touch with your silly side and having fun with the children in your life.

Two of their latest additions, Giraffalaff Limbo and Scatterpillar Scramble, are games that are sure to bring smiles and laughter to you and your kids!

Giraffalaff Limbo Box-1GIRAFFALAFF LIMBO is the crazy new game of “how low can you go?” Spin the dial to try one of the 6 limbo styles: classic limbo, crab walk, crawl, giraffe walk, bend forward or backward. The game’s built-in sound will play an encouraging song as preschoolers try not to bump into Giraffalaff. If he’s knocked over, he’ll roll on the floor in laughter. The player that passes under Giraffalaff at the lowest level wins. (Approx. Retail Price: $29.99)

Scatterpillar Scramble BoxIn SCATTERPILLAR SCRAMBLE kids will do their best to balance marbles in the hands of one very wiggly caterpillar. Kids will have fun dancing along to the music with Scatterpillar in this fast-paced marble game. The first player to securely place all 8 marbles in Scatterpillar’s hands wins. SCATTERPILLAR SCRAMBLE was named the 2009 Preschool Game of the Year by Creative Child Magazine. (Approx. Retail Price: $19.99)

The Elefun & Friends collection, which also includes Elefun, Hungry Hungry Hippos, and Gator Golf, provides a great way for parents and their kids to enjoy silly, active playtime together.

    Thanks for giving me a reason to relive all of the “silly” moments in my life. There is never a dull moment at my house–the photo of my youngest dancing in broken raw eggs in our family room, or the one of my middle son wearing lipstick after his “rock star” party last December were close runners up!

    Can’t wait to see the entries!

    Fun contest. But I only linked to my blog in #41, not to my contest post (which I did in #42). So sorry to post 2 links – can you delete the first one for me?? Apologize again for messing up!

    I just left one of my favorite silly pictures of my daughter. It is so indicative of her personality. She’s a nut!

  4. says

    Am going through Mr. Linky one post at a time to view all of the photos and am so disappointed at those who are just posting links to their storefronts. Shame on you!! 5M4M has a community where you can share your links in a positive light. Don’t ruin the fun for the rest of us please!

    I am loving this contest! I just added a goofy photo of my daughter — my little comedienne! I love checking out the other silly photos! Thanks for this great contest!

    So many cute silly photos submitted!! Yes, I’ve looked at them all! How will you decide?? I hope my silly Boy at least makes someone laugh!!

  7. says

    This was a lot of fun, and a nice trip down memory lane. It also inspired my kids and I to keep having those random, silly funny moments (okay–so they are now staging some for a laugh)


  8. says

    Lots of entries, good luck everyone! This is so fun. I always want to commend y’all for stating your rules up front and making them clear and fair. So many contests lately have not been that way. Kudos!
