Mama’s Holiday Wish List 2010 (Contest Closed)

GameStop and the TodaysMama staff would like to extend a big THANK YOU to everyone that participated in our annual Wish List contest.

Congratulations to our GRAND PRIZE Wish List WINNER, meme author #765, Tonya Prater of Live the Adventure.

Congratulations to Runner Up #1, Christina Mira

Congratulations to Runner Up #2, Sylvia

Congratulations to Runner Up #3, Sbmock


People, this is the year. The year that we wish big and manage to slow down to make the holidays magical and cookie-filled.

Of course, it’s tough to orchestrate the magic when you’re knee deep in to-do’s. That’s why we’ve partnered with GameStop to take a big to-do off that list—the one that says “Get epic gifts for the family”.

That one, we’ve covered. TodaysMama and GameStop are giving Santa a run for his money this year with a pile of presents that any family could love.  Our Wish List Grand Prize includes:

One XBox 360 250 GB with Kinect

One Nintendo Red Wii Bundle

Three Nintendo Red DSi XL Bundles

Plus, a ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR GameStop gift certificate so you can fill those stockings with games and accessories.

You may want to serve some earplugs with your hot cocoa on Christmas morning to protect your precious hearing from the shrieks of joy from your family.

Entering this contest is easy and fun. Just answer and post the meme below on your blog or as a Facebook note and add your link below.

To participate you must include all of the text, including the links, in bold below:

    Hey, this would just be so great for my family this year… things have been tight and we haven’t been able to do too much for ourselves for the past couple of years. So if we were picked it would just be such a boost to our christmas this year.
