LEGO Competition in honour of World Turtle Day

World Turtle Day is just around the corner (May 23rd) and the lovely people at LEGO are letting me giveaway two fabulous Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle products to coincide with this special day.  


Both my boys have become over night fans of all things Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle shaped, so I am more than happy to raise awareness for the real Turtles out there (who may not have a penchant for pizza or wield fancy weapons but are still very nice regardless!).

So lets big up the Turtle by helping protect them in the wild and learning more about the work of the American Tortoise Rescue (who founded World Turtle Day way back in 2000) by heading over to their website.

On offer we have Shredder's Dragon Bike (#79101, RRP: £24.99) and Kraang Lab Escape (#79100, RRP: £9.99) to create some fine Turtle adventures. 
Wait till your children set eyes on them!  The winner will be in their good books for AGES.  My two were quite disgruntled when I explained "no little darlings I am running a competition, they are not for you!"  Hmmmph.  Seriously you would think they were toy starved!
