Hey Parents! We’ve got a contest that will evoke your inner rapper and give you the chance to win some great prizes for you and the kids.
Following the release of an animated Webkinz music video titled “The Coolest Thing is Everything”, we launched a “Webkinz Rap Contest“encouraging Webkinz fans (with YouTube accounts) to write & rap their own “The Coolest Thing is Everything” lyrics on video.
Of course we wouldn’t ask anyone to rap on video unless we were willing to do it ourselves!
In the “Webkinz Rap Contest” video you’ll find a handful of Webkinz staffers in their full glory performing the “Coolest Thing is Everything” rap for fans.
So, we’ve got Webkinz fans and Webkinz employees rapping, but what’s missing? …. YOU!
To complete this campaign (and to embarrass your kids) Webkinz is calling all parents to submit a short rap video for a chance to win a gift basket containing Time & Again beauty products and a Webkinz pet!
The 5 winner’s videos will also be featured in a parents-only Webkinz Rap Video!
We’ll pick 5 parents to WIN!
