Hopefully all of our readers survived the holiday shopping craze, so whether you are done already or still have some more shopping to do, let’s relax and have some fun. LEGO generously sent us over some really nice LEGO books from DK Publishing, so we will run a little giveaway. Below I will show you the books that are going to be available, then will let you know how to enter the contest. So here we go. 🙂
➡ THE LEGO MOVIE: THE ESSTENTIAL GUIDE – This is a really nice hardbound book for fans of The LEGO Movie. It covers everything from all the main characters to the different realms featured in the film. Each page is full color with lots of fun facts and tidbits. I especially like the last chapter with behind-the-scenes look at how the movie, characters and LEGO sets were developed. Here is the official description: When an ordinary LEGO minifigure discovers he is the only one who can stop an evil LEGO tyrant from ending the world as he knows it, he embarks on an all-new, all-LEGO adventure. This fully illustrated guide to the upcoming The LEGO Movie explores the characters and locations of this long-awaited film with profiles, location spreads, and behind-the-scenes information about how the movie was made. The LEGO Movie: The Essential Guide would not be complete without fun and interesting facts and cool movie stills. The book is 63 pages and has a 5-star rating on Amazon. I would recommend it for both children and adults who like the move. Normal price is $12.99. For more details you can check out the book on Amazon: THE LEGO MOVIE: THE ESSTENTIAL GUIDE ON AMAZON

Witness Darth Vader battling Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker, meet the Sith and all of Darth Vader’s minifigure subjects, and explore the Death Star and all of the Sith starships.

Now, as far as the contest, as I have mentioned LEGO sent us two of each of the above books for a fun giveaway. Below are the rules, so if you would like to participate and win your own copy read on!
➡ HOW TO ENTER: We are going to keep this simple and fun! To be eligible to enter the contest share a joke. It doesn’t have to be LEGO related at all. Just something funny. It could be a joke you have made up, or something you heard somewhere else. It could be a complex riddle or a simple “Knock, Knock. Who is There?” type funny. So this is what you need to do to enter the contest, in the comment section below say:
- I’m entering to win (name of book you would like to win from the above list). Here is my joke: (include joke).
➡ WHAT ARE THE RULES: Nothing difficult; just enter the book you would like to win, and share your joke. Please note that jokes are NOT rated. A joke is simply a way to enter. Better/funnier jokes don’t have a higher chance of winning. Winners will be chosen at random. You can enter up to four times – once for each of the different books – but you will have to share a different joke each time. If you enter more than once for each book, or more than four times in total, (please don’t, as it will just make counting difficult), only your first entry for each book will count. Any joke is fine, but keep in mind that this is a family-friendly site, so no dirty jokes please. Let’s see how funny and creative you are! We just want a good laugh! 😀
➡ HOW TO WIN: Contest will run from now until Monday, December 8th at midnight US EST. Once the contest is closed I will tally up the request for each of the books, and I ask my little sister to pick the winning numbers. So if there are 20 entries for the LEGO Star Wars book, I will ask her to pick a number between 1 and 20. Same for the other books as well. There are two of each of the books (eight in total) for this giveaway, and we usually have 50-100 entries to a contest, so you got a good chance of winning, and you might even win more than one book if you are lucky!
➡ WHAT YOU WIN: The winners will receive one copy of their chosen book from the above list. If they entered more than once, and won more than one book, of course they will receive all of their winnings together.
➡ HOW TO RECEIVE YOUR PRIZE: If you are winner I will contact you by email. Please make sure your email address in your comment is correct! You send me your shipping address (no PO Box please) and I will send you your prize. Best of luck! 😉
