His Boys Can Swim Prize Giveaway Received!

Yesterday, Mommy received a cushioned type of big envelope in the mail from USA. And Mommy knew instantly what's inside the envelope. It's none other than a handbook on baby emergency situations entitled "Baby Medbasics: Your Essential What To Do Guide to Infant Emergencies" published by Medbasics! What Mommy got is the blue colour Home Pack type worth USD35. And Mommy is pretty sure you can't find this item selling in Malaysian stores. Wow! Mommy finds this exciting!

Here's the story how Mommy earned this prize:

Mommy found this pregnancy blog His Boys Can Swim in BlogCatalog and found this blog to be a very interesting read about an anonymous couple called Tarzan and Jane going through their first pregnancy journey. Then finally, on 21st February 2009, Tarzan and Jane launched their first official His Boys Can Swim Contest which ended on 28th February 2009. This contest was opened to anyone for free and each participant allowed a maximum of three entries.

What do you have to do in the contest? Pretty simple, though a little time consuming. Tarzan and Jane listed 31 websites, all of which are the websites of the sponsors of the contest giveaway prizes. Participants were required to visit all 31 websites and state what other item(s)/picture(s) the participant likes as well, and then list them by posting in the comments section - that's 1st entry.

For the 2nd entry, participants are required to go to their Twitter account and tweet this message: "I entered the @hisboyscanswim Contest for Moms and Moms-to-be! Over $1,594 in prizes:" and then come back to the comments section of the contest page to post that the message was tweeted and also state the participant's Twitter ID.

For the 3rd entry, participants were required to blog about any one of their postings in the His Boys Can Swim (HBCS) blog and include two links, i.e., one link to HBCS and another link to the chosen posting in HBCS blog. So Mommy's blog post can be found here. After that, participants were required to come back to the comments section of the contest page to post that this is the 3rd entry and to include the URL of the participant's blog post. For those who do not have a blog or website, they can merely include their email to subcribe for HBCS blog newsletter....something like that (Mommy doesn't quite remember the details!).

So, finally, Tarzan and Jane did lucky draws using and Mommy is one of the winners (Winner #6)! After that, Mommy was required to contact Tarzan and Jane within 48 hours from the result announcement to tell them which is the preferred prize and Mommy's mailing address. So, after waiting for about almost a month, finally the prize is here!

Here's how the prize looks like:

(The entire package from the cushioned envelope.)

(A closer view of the prize.)

(A congratulatory note from Medbasics.)

(A peek into the contents of the book.)

(The book's outer cover can be folded into a small bag for you to hang at visible and convenient places in case of baby emergencies.)
