This is one of two competitions on the blog at the moment - both have great prizes up for grabs, so it's well worth entering!
 
To celebrate the launch of some new stop-motion shorts featuring Scooby-Doo and the gang, there's a £150 Smyths Toys gift card up for grabs. Zoinks! http://wp.me/p3nDtJ-PP #sp   #giveaway   #competition

On the blog today, I'm told to call EMU when my wife goes into labour. Whimsy ensues. http://bit.ly/1PxrgQD #DadToBe   #homebirth

On +Diary of the Dad today, I'm basically moaning about things I've wasted money on in the past...

On +Diary of the Dad today, I get to play with LEGO. And the Xbox. Is everything awesome? In a word, yes. #LEGO  
 
I'm delighted to have been sent #LEGODimensions  for review. Here's what we thought of it. And, yes, I know I'm very lucky... http://wp.me/p3nDtJ-PS
