My second blog 10th Anniversary giveaway with Pop Up Designs


This is my third year of running competitions to celebrate the anniversary of my blog. This year seems a bit more special as I have now been running for ten years. This is also the third year that Pop Up Designs have been lovely enough to offer a prize for a giveaway. I first got involved with them as the grandchildren got me one of the card designs a few years back for Mothers Day. Something we still have as an ornament.

POP UP  products are designed and made by Andy Cox who started a small business in 2012 in order to raise funds to support two children a year (or more) through compassion UK.  This charity gives long term support  to children in the worlds poorest places
 They are currently working along side others in Guatemala.  The local children there do not have the luxury are children have, lock down or not we are still well off with running water and electricity. Pop Up Designs are helping with a feeding programmes as the government has closed all feeding centres. The teams are therefore trying to drop off food parcels.. quite a task for 7000 families a week!

So the prize on offer this years has been designed with the idea of keeping the children amused while in lock down. A home activity kit for youngsters  . It comes in two different age groups, a 5-8 age group and 8-14 .

Kit 1. Here is a kit of 12 A6 wooden gift cards unpackaged for your kids to have an exciting morning or afternoon of making. The idea came from an ex-pupil trapped at home, for isolation purposes, who wanted some models to keep the troops entertained. This is an easy to make kit of animals and birds! 





Kit 2
This is a more challenging kit of animals and birds plus one random bike to give your youngsters some tricky builds! Our favourite is the lobster, maybe the bike, but all are suitable for kids aged 8 to 12 ish… or big kids like me at nearly 60! 




Have to say I love the Populele currently on special as they only have a few left.

Why Populele we hear you ask. Well it is custom made by us here at Pop Up designs and uses Italian Poplar plywood in its construction…. so Populele seemed like a good name! This is a fantastic gift for the guitar/uke lover, imagine the thrill of making your own instrument easily! It will provide hours of fun playing and is light and easy to take with you wherever you go. Fully playable and supplied for you to build in a kit form. Full making instructions included, with tools, strings and all you need to make your very own 100% wooden Populele (concert sized Ukulele)
Not bad for £40, think of the satisfaction.

Ok anyway I digress.

So to enter the giveaway just fill in the gleam form below. Quick and easy and one winner with be randomly selected when the giveaway closes and they can choose Kit 1 or Kit 2.

If you have nephews, nieces, children or grandchildren I think these would make a fabulous Easter present instead of an egg, and no worries of it breaking in the post.

We went to Scotland on a holiday and I caught a fish, he took a lovely photo of me holding it wearing a tshirt with Nessie on the front, and it says "I'm A Little Monster" on it. Well it would have been a lovely photo if it was not for the knickers which were drying in the background (we were in a caravan so not much room).
