JURASSIC WORLD Giveaway – Raptor and Books

Jurassic Park – the colossal summer blockbuster, the film that let you know the first day of summer had arrived, is more than just a movie, a memory shared by all, and the source of one of my greatest parenting blunders.  Before the June 12 release of JURASSIC WORLD, let’s reflect on my error, and offer tools in the form of this JURASSIC WORLD giveaway to prepare your family to not repeat my mistake.  Continue reading to enter to win your own raptor and books in our JURASSIC WORLD giveaway using the rafflecopter widget below.


Parenting 101, make sure home is a safe environment where children feel secure.  Flashback 7 or 8 years ago when I had the evening alone with my youngest daughter (age 6 or 7 at the time).  Jurassic Park was playing on TV, and I thought, “kids love dinosaurs… this will be great to watch together.”  Ooops, I forgot about all those scenes of dinosaurs chomping people and stalking children.  *Click* time to off turn the TV.  My daughter reminds me to this day of the traumatizing scene of raptors in the kitchen.  Today our daughters are 17 and 14, theme park veterans, and excited for JURASSIC WORLD, but have yet to see the original Jurassic Park in its entirety.


We’ve partnered with Universal Pictures as part of #TeamJurassic to gear up for the release of JURASSIC WORLD.  We’ll be watching Jurassic Park, and getting more comfortable with our dinosaur pals.  In addition, Universal Pictures has sent us a prize pack to giveaway to one of our readers containing a Jurassic World Dinosaur Field Guide paperback book, Jurassic World: Where Dinosaurs Come to Life hardcover book, and Velociraptor figure.
