Giveaway Madness!

While our Scienceworks Giveaway doesn't close until April 1, we have had so many great entries that we had to source some more wonderful prizes!

Thankfully, our friends at The Baby & Toddler Show have generously given us some double passes to this weekend's awesome Baby & Toddler Show in Melbourne! So do you have wonderful things planned for your weekend? If you sent in a photo entry for our latest giveaway, there may be some free passes in your inbox very soon to solve any weekend boredom worries! There's also the possibility that some lucky (randomly chosen) facebook fans might receive a double pass tomorrow too! So if you haven't already, go 'like' our facebook page!

The Baby & Toddler Show is Melbourne's premier baby and parenting event and an invaluable resource for expectant and first-time mums. This year, the show will feature daily seminars by parenting expert Pinky McKay and parenting psychologist Angharad Candlin at the Bio-Oil Main Stage; informative, hands-on sessions with leading maternal and baby nurses and experts at the Advice Hub; and over 200 exciting exhibitors showcasing and selling their new and innovative baby and toddler products.

The interactive and fun Fisher-Price playground, roving entertainment and meet-and-greet sessions with New MacDonald's Farm and Bananas in Pyjamas will keep little ones entertained, while peaceful and relaxing areas such as the Woolworths Change Room and show Feeding Room have been set aside for parents.

The Baby & Toddler Show will run from 30 March to 1 April (9.30am - 4.30pm) at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre.  We hope you were lucky enough to win a double pass from our recent giveaway, but if not, tickets are on sale now and can be purchased from The Baby & Toddler Show's website at

Sharing the Love

It’s giveaway time :)

Our friends at Scienceworks have so very generously donated us two family passes to their super awesome, family-friendly, always fun, science and technology centre.
Located just out of Melbourne, Scienceworks is the experience that makes science fun. Here’s a little insight into how your trip to Scienceworks may pan out…

Once entering the doors of this western-based gem, you will be welcomed by sights, sounds, buttons, pulleys… a learners wonderland.  Your little people may run around like crazy possessed professors at first, swept away by the hands-on frenzy available to them! Once they overcome this and relax into the facts and figures in front of them, you can spend hours enjoying each interactive exhibition and learning more about the world around you. Lucky for you, the pass also includes FREE entry to a Planetarium show. Here you will lay back, recline in your comfy seat and immerse yourself in the stars above. You will learn things that will blow your mind and give you some perspective on just how big the Universe truly is. Other places to explore include the hair-raising Lightning Room, the history filled Pumping Station and the playgrounds, surrounding. No doubt you will leave exhausted, but with happy little minds and bodies in tow.

And now by sharing your love with us, we will share our love with you ….. by presenting two of you with these brilliant freebie tickets!

What we want to see from you is pictures of well loved goodies that you bought from a Sugar & Spice Children’s Market. Things like a well-loved dolly, a stained and much worn dress, an always cuddled blanket, a well-used bib, anything that you have purchased from one of our markets and found itself into a much loved home.

Please email us your pictures along with a little caption and we will share them on facebook for you all to see. Two entries will be chosen by random generator and awarded a FREE family pass to Scienceworks (Two adults, Three Children, including Planetarium entry, valid until 31 Dec 2012) You can enter as many times as you like, each picture will give you one entry into the draw.

We can’t wait to see your entries – send them through!
By entering this competition you are allowing us permission to post your picture and caption to our Sugar & Spice facebook page. Winners will be drawn Sunday 1 April 2012. Australian residents can enter only.
