Calling All Meerkat Lovers - GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED - Winner picked and announced.


We're regulars, Aaron and I, at Paradise Wildlife Park, and one of the things we LOVE there is the Meerkats!  They are as cute in the flesh as they are on the TV adverts.

It may have escaped you, that there is a new Meerkat in town - Baby Oleg.  He's creating quite a storm on You Tube.  My favourite Meerkat You Tube video has to be their rendition of Coronation Street's theme tune :-) sorry Oleg...

But seriously though look how incredibly CUTE he is:



If you don't want to enter this prize draw (more about that to follow) then you can adopt your own Baby Oleg here or simply go there to find out more about his story.  He even has a blog "Baby Oleg diary" which is quite entertaining to say the least!
This is the reason (below) we all started our blogs isn't it ;-)

So, about the prize... it is the FULL SET so you get all six of the Meerkat characters AND Baby Oleg.  Here are their names:

Meet the Team

Meet The Villagers

So over to the Prize Draw:  If you are a UK resident, it's *simples*.... all you have to do is leave a comment below (compulsory) via Rafflecopter (as it states on Rafflecopter the comment must state which of the Baby Oleg videos is your favourite and for extra entries via Rafflecopter simply tweet out this prize draw, and follow me on Twitter.  I don't want to exclude people who are not on Twitter so those entries will not be compulsory.    It's my 1st time using Rafflecopter - wish me luck. Closing date for entries: 08/02/14 00:00 a.m. The winner will be contacted that weekend, and the promoter, Compare the Market will then dispatch the prize.  There is ONE complete set of Meerkat toys available.  
 
Best of luck to you too of course,
Liska xxx a Rafflecopter giveaway    

P.S. I hope they are won by someone who loves them and will give them a good home.  I'd hate to see them end up on EBay.  A Meerkat is for life not just for Christmas, you know!  Poor poor Baby Oleg being abandoned like that #bless

Update:
Thank you so much for making my first ever Rafflecopter giveaway a success!
This competition was won by Donna Kent.  Out of her 3 entries Rafflecopter randomly picked entry #902 which was her blog-post comment as below:

    ReplyDelete
  116. I think the Christmas video is the best.

    Agree about the meerkats at Paradise Wildlife Park. I went to one of their 'be a zookeeper for a day' events. It was cold and hard work. However, I really enjoyed it and loved spending some time with the meerkats.

    They wouldn't let me go and play with the cheetahs :-( I suppose it would look bad if a vistor was eaten by thw Cheetahs but I do love them.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I love the Doorstep one because you just never know what miracles are around the corner...
    And agree with you 'ebay comms' there are quite a few names here who 'comp for profit' - its a disgrace.
