And I am also excited about the chance to give away some “Wild Things” goodies! I have three Wild Things toys, a calendar, and a DVD-Blu-Ray combo pack.

And don’t forget to check out the Wild Things iphone app.

The Blu-Ray has some great extras, including:

· HBO First Look featurette

· 8 Webisodes:

o The Absurd Difficulty of Filming a Dog Running and Barking at the Same Time

o The Big Prank

o Vampire Attack

o The Kids Take Over the Picture

o Maurice and Spike

o Max and Spike

o The Records Family

o Carter Burwell

Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com and tell me why kids love Wild Things. Put Wild Things and “toy,” “calendar,” or “DVD-Blu-Ray” in the subject line. The first in each category will win the prize. Only one entry per family and US addresses only, please. Note: prizes provided by Warner Brothers. All views expressed are my own.
