Ok have you seen this adorable little cartoon about saving the Chocolate Bunnies?? Here's the thing - yes, they are tasty - and yes, every Easter basket should have one - but some of us are on a diet, thank you very much. I can't have those delicious, long eared, tiny- nosed, mouthwatering chocolate bunnies all over the house this Easter if I ever hope to get into a bathing suit - or even just last year's capris for crying out loud. I mean, do you know how many years I've been breaking the ears off of these guys and dipping them in a large jar of peanut butter - but then the ears aren't quite enough and I end up decapitating them and then I think well that's disturbing - I can't just leave a body there like that...so I end up eating the body, too? It's a problem that I do NOT intend to subject myself to this year! SO - I am selfishly going to promote the Save the Bunnies campaign and beg you to just put toys in the Easter Baskets this year ! I mean technically the chocolate bunnies are for my kids - but I mean they usually get more than one from grandparents, etc - so I really do need to put my foot down and follow Mattel's suggestion and just get them some toys.
So - I am very excited to be partnering with Mattel to give you a shot at winning some fun toys to stuff your Easter baskets with! (Which reminds me, they never said we couldn't go crazy buying jelly beans - there's no reason we have to give up all of our vices in one year!!)
We have two exciting contests for you to enter! The first is one designed JUST FOR my fans!! One lucky winner will get a Hot Wheels 5 Pack and a Barbie Madison! So if that sounds like something you
think would be fun for your kids then be sure to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway here!a Rafflecopter giveaway
The second giveaway is one that is running across multiple blogs but I just know one of you has the best shot of winning, don't you agree!? The first prize is a gift basket full of toys and 10 second prizes! Here is the entry form for that one, too! Be sure to enter both so you have an even better chance of winning! All prizes will be packed and shipped to you from the Mattel Store!
Thank you for supporting my totally self-serving public service announcement! For the record, I know these choco-bunnies are for the kids - but like the buckets of Halloween candy that stare us in the face for weeks, and the countless Valentine's Day boxes of chocolates that are determined to sabotage our New Year's Resolutions, I refuse to be taunted by leftover chocolate bunnies that are just begging to be snapped in half with a tall glass of milk. I will not be caught off guard when the warm weather approaches! Just say YES to Easter basket toys - and NO to temptation!
:) Cheers and love - and thanks for humoring me - - - I very much hope that my friends win all of the prizes!! (Be sure to let me know if you did, ok!!) GOOD LUCK - and thanks for saving the bunnies!
