A WordWorld Giveaway!

Last Sunday I reviewed the recent WordWorld Holiday special that is currently airing on PBS as well as one of the toys available in the WordWorld toy line-up. Today, due to a lucky break, I am posting a corresponding giveaway just for you!

Here is a portion of my previous review:

WordWorld, the popular children's PBS preschool show, is airing a new holiday special this December. We were offered a chance to watch the advance holiday screener and my daughter loved it! The episodes titled The Christmas Star and A Christmas Present for Dog will air several times beginning Dec. 1st. Make sure to check your local television listings to find out when it is on in your area!

Still looking for a great holiday gift for your preschooler? WordWorld educational toys are available for purchase from Target.

We had the opportunity to try out the Mega Bloks WordWorld Bucket Set - Barn. The playset has been a really big hit with my daughter. The 49 piece set includes two WordFriends you can assemble (Cow and Pig), the tractor and cart, hay, a fence, windmill, and a shovel that all fit nicely into the BARN container. In addition, kids are able to use the 16 double-sided letter blocks to spell different words like CORN and ROPE. Best of all, the set can be used with other Mega Blok and Duplo sets for hours of play. My only complaint is that I wish more letter blocks were included so you could display the entire alphabet from A to Z. Luckily there are enough letters to spell out both my daughter's name and son's name, separately. I am unable to spell my own name with the letters that are included though. As a bonus, the set comes with a DVD that includes one WordWorld Episode.

Win a WordWorld product! WordWorld has kindly offered to sponsor a giveaway. Two prizes will be awarded for this giveaway: One (1) Winner will win a Mega Bloks WordWorld Bucket Set - Barn. One (1) second-place winner will receive a copy of the WordWorld Holiday Episode Screener DVD.

My girls love WordWorld, and I think the creative concept behind it is excellent! I'd love to win this giveaway for them, so my suggestion for a new word character or word thing is UNICORN. My daughters both like unicorns, so I think it would be fun to see this one concept brought to life.

Thanks for the entry!

I'd love to see a WordWorld about sea animals, with fish, dolphins, crabs, sharks, seaweed, etc as word characters.

My kids love WordWorld!! I think it'd be fun it they had an episode that focused on how to say words in different languages. That'd be fun!!

My youngest loves trains so it would be cool to see TRAIN or even different train cars like engine, boxcar, tanker, caboose, and track, signal, etc.

I think they already have one with farm animals, which is another of his favorite things :).

Becky said...

I know this may sound a little strange but I would like to see the word Danger. It would be a great learning opportunity for the little ones.

Thanks so much!

'doctor' or 'nurse' or anyone in the medical prof. would be interesting to teach young ones that they save lives!

How about GIVE - my kids are really starting to grasp the idea of giving is = to or better than receiving!

Asylumgirl said...

How about spot? It has several connotations.

How about MUSIC? My son loves music and I haven't seen any shows/toys with that theme (although I admit we just found WordWorld recently). Thanks for the chance. lys76 at msn dot com

What great products! I'd love to see words that inspire children to be aware of their carbon footprint, such as recycle, reuse, etc. Thanks for the great giveaway!
