Because it's already December 1st, I'll be throwing in a bonus set that the LEGO Store had available for a limited time but you can't purchase now: a 24-in-1 set Christmas Build-Up. It has the pieces to build 24 additional small sets; the catch with that one is I think you can't build all 24 at once. You need to disassemble the peacock to build the owl, or the hot chocolate mug to build the snowplow. I think. Last year was the first time they did one of these, and this year is the first time I acquired one, AND I'M GIVING IT AWAY INSTEAD OF KEEPING IT FOR MYSELF. That's how much I love you guys.
So. Because it's already like 5 AM on December 1st where I live, we'll give you a gentlemanly 27 hours to enter to win the Advent Calendar and City Buildup. So the day you receive it, you'll get to build a few of the sets (because I didn't think ahead and do this contest last week), and then space out the rest of the sets Advent-Style leading up to Christmas. If they had similar countdowns for Hanukkah or Ramadan or other holidays/celebrations, I'd give those away. Butttttt this is what we've got.
I knew you were wondering. There are three ways to enter:
1. Comment on this post. You do that below at the very end of this post. Lower...lower...there.
2. Subscribe to the monthly Play Like a PIRATE newsletter. It comes out once a month, with ideas for the classroom, a graphic novel review, and a review and chance to win the new LEGO Set of the Month. No spamming (beyond once a month), no selling your emails to anyone. I don't even know who I would sell them to. It may be worth investigating.
3. Follow @jedikermit on Twitter and retweet this tweet. If you're not on The Twitter, you really should be. Sign up just for this entry. And follow me. So worth it. You can follow the #PlayLAP hashtag to see what other people are doing with Play Like a PIRATE. A book you should totally buy.
So you can enter up to three times. Don't try and cheat. Teachers always know.
Some fine print: the LEGO Set of the Month will only be available to U.S. residents. Even though I love everyone on the planet, international shipping is beyond my reach. The drawing for the December LEGO Set of the Month will be at 9 AM MST on Saturday, December 2. The drawing will be taken from all eligible entries with a random generator. So hopefully you win. Yeah, you.
