THIS WEEK’S CONTEST
This week we’re offering music by Baby Rock Records and apparel from Beethoven’s Wig:
- A sampler CD by Baby Rock Records, Rockabye Baby!, featuring lullaby renditions of favorite rock bands.
- Youth size small t-shirt submitted by Beethoven’s Wig to the HFVS T-shirt Review.
There seemed to be an equally positive response from kids and parents on this design. They all liked the otherworldly, flowing wig on Beethoven’s head. “I like that his wig is tubes,” commented Ruben (age 10). And Ruben’s parents, found the design fun, fanciful and imaginative. “Best graphic,” wrote Gus (Ruben’s dad).
HOW TO WIN: For your chance to win, simply post us a comment below. We’ll randomly draw a winner from everyone who leaves a comment. IT’S THAT SIMPLE! — Deadline is 01/22/08 @ 7pm (EST).
