Bob's Big Build at the O2 - Giveaway!

Last week I was very lucky indeed and won a family VIP trip to last Saturdays Bob's Big Build at the O2.  The trip included transfer to the O2 by Thames Clipper - a method of transport I knew nothing about until Saturday but is absolutely fabulous! "Bob's Team" on board the boat plied us with lots and lots of yummy scran, as well as giving us a gorgeous goody bag each to take away.  I was absolutely astounded by the level of hospitality we received, a true glimpse into how the other half live ;-)  There was lots of Mummy Bloggers on the trip, I felt a bit of a fraud only being there as a competition winner...I really wanted to say hello and introduce myself to a couple (not that they would have known who I was), but I was too shy.


Bob's Big Build was a extravaganza of various Bob related activities, culminating in a mini live show - which both the kids loved!



Upon arriving at the O2 the kids were each given a hard hat just like Bob's and a passport to get stickered in each one of the zones. There was a colouring and activity section, a little scooter track (they had to put helmets on....mega cute), a sandpit where you could dig for Dino bones, a construction site (foam bricks only!), an interactive toy area, a storytelling zone, a bouncy castle and face painting/balloon modelling - Alfie had a fantastic little Spud face painted on his hand:



To finish our day we went and watched the special screening of Bob's Brand new DVD - Bob's Big Dino Dig (available to buy from 19th September), which was Alfie's favourite part of the day.  There was also an opportunity to meet Bob and Wendy in a meet and greet but Grace was pretending she was starving to death by that point so we had to beat a hasty retreat! 

We had a wonderful day, the kids really enjoyed it and it really did give me an inspiration to work hard at the blogging - and maybe one day I'll get an invite to an event like this because of it :-)

For my very first giveaway on this blog I am going to give away 2 lovely Bob the Builder Goody Bags, each consisting of:

1 x Poster
1 x Bob's Big Dino Dig DVD
2 x Books
1 x Pack of game cards (there's 4 different games to play with them)
1 x Sticker Activity Pack

The competition will close at 9pm on Monday 12th September 2011.  2 winners will be selected using Random.Org and will be notified shortly afterwards.  Entry is restricted to one per person and is open to UK residents only.  Good luck!!
