I had a little idea which I thought would be fun for all you creative mums and dads out there with little Nick Jr fans.
We're asking you to get carving on your pumpkins this Halloween and come up with your best Nick Jr themed effort.
Ruby was very keen for a Peppa Pig Pumpkin, and she was pretty pleased with my attempt - although she has now requested that we paint it pink!
We'd love you to share or send in your pumpkin creations of your favourite Nick Jr characters. Maybe you'll pick Dora; Olive the Ostrich; Ben and Holly or Fifi - it's entirely up to you.
You can use whatever method you like to decorate your pumpkin: carving; painting; sticking or anything else you come up with!
The winning entry will get a fantastic Nick Jr Goody bag, crammed full of exciting things for your Nick Jr fan. In addition, the winner will also get a totally unique, money-can't-buy exclusive message video from The Bopps. We'll liaise with the winner to discuss who you want the personalised message for, so enter for your kids, your grandchildren, your nieces and nephews or maybe for the whole nursery! The Bopps have kindly agreed to record a special message for the winner - maybe you have a birthday coming up, or you'd like them to make a special Christmas recording just for you.
How to enter:
Take a photo of your Nick Jr pumpkin and share the link here in the comments section - a twitpic url or Flickr url for example. Alternatively, you can email me the picture to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title Nick Jr Pumpkin Competition. Include your name and contact details.
For a second, bonus entry, please follow Keith Bopp on Twitter and tweet the following: "I'm entering @missielizzieb's blog comp to win a Nick Jr Goody Bag & special @KeithBopp recording here: http://bit.ly/ss4RaD #NickJrPumpkin". Leave a separate comment below to say you have done this.
The competition closes at 5pm on Tuesday 01 November 2011. Entries received after that time will not be counted. The entries will be judged by The Bopps themselves, and they will choose the final winner. The winner must provide an email address after being notified so we can discuss your personal requirements and send the final video file electronically.
The competition is open worldwide.
