VW "Routan Boom" Prize Pack Giveaway

Babies, a book, and the VW Routan. Brooke Shields has been one busy mama! Shields, who is the mother to daughters Rowan and Grier, published her first children's book earlier this year titled, Welcome to Your World, Baby. Just lately, Volkswagen has featured her as the star of their "Routan Boom" commercials.

The newly released VW Routan seven-passenger minivan is Volkswagen's family addition to their vehicle line. If you watch any TV, I'm sure you've seen the commercial. The "Routan Boom" spot is a humorous spoof-documentary starring Brooke as a reporter who accuses parents-to-be for having babies just so they can own the new minivan. She tells them to, "have a baby for love, not for German engineering.” The commercials are ironically funny, so long as you take them lightly as they are meant to be viewed. If by chance you haven't seen them, I've included a YouTube compilation of the ads below:

The ads are unique but don't mention much vehicle specifics. The Volkswagen Routan was created with the family in mind. For the features and specs, visit

Want to have a little fun while visiting the website? Use the Babymaker 3000! Upload a picture of a mom and a dad and see the resulting combo-baby. Apparently, the image to the left is what one of my children is supposed to look like according to Babymaker 3000. Not bad, but I think my actual kids are cuter.

One other interesting fact: "Routan" is a combination of the English word "route" and the "-an" suffix that is used in the names of Volkswagen's European vans, so it's a literal combo of two engineering worlds, VW and Chrysler.

Want to win a VW "Routan Boom" Prize Pack? Volkswagen has kindly offered to sponsor a giveaway. One (1) of my readers will receive the following items:
One (1) Book: Welcome to Your World, Baby by Brooke Shields

Love the rear park assist, since I know I've been too distracted to see how close I am to things behind me now and then. Thanks for the chance to enter, my sister just bought a VW and would love this!

Besides the fact that it is a great looking car, the feature that I like are the remote controlled operated doors. So many times, I have chilren and bags to deal with and pressing a remote would be so convenient for opening the doors. Please enter me in your delightful giveaway drawing.
