Matchbox Heroes Wanted!

Who is your child's hero??? My son LOVES firefighters, police officers, and other every day heroes but he also loves just being a hero in general and "saving the day" as he says every time he kisses an "owie" on his sister or his mommy or daddy, gets us something that we need or shares his toys!

Matchbox wants to know who your child's heroes are too! To commemorate its 60 year anniversary, Matchbox® is kicking off a three-month national campaign to honor heroes-in-training – the children who play with, and inspire, Matchbox®. The campaign includes the Matchbox® Heroes Wanted™ Sweepstakes with a hero-sized $60,000 college scholarship and a national retail promotion for fans to purchase Matchbox® diecast vehicles for just 60 cents for a limited time at participating retailers now through March 10th.

It's a really fun contest that calls on parents to celebrate the heroic attributes of their children by submitting a picture of their child dressed as their favorite real-life icon, along with a caption explaining why they are a true Matchbox® hero. Anyone with a child between three and 10 years old can enter the contest now through May 13, 2013. Submissions will be showcased on the Matchbox® Heroes Wanted™ Facebook gallery and are automatically entered to win the grand prize - a $60,000 college scholarship! 60 prize pack giveaways will be awarded weekly consisting of a Matchbox® branded gift box, a personalized photo-frame thank you card and four heroic Matchbox® vehicles. The goal is to honor the children who play with, and inspire, Matchbox®. To learn more about the contest and read stories from the heroes that inspired Matchbox® vehicles, check out

I've been reading your blog for sometime now and I think it's great. I read this entry and, coincidentially, there was a news story in the New York Daily news about "tiny superheroes" that I wanted to share with you and anyone else that reads your blog. Thanks.
