Ridley’s Retro Xmas Giveaway – take a trip down memory lane

PrintAs the countdown to Christmas has officially begun and children worldwide are becoming increasingly excited about the annual visit from Santa, Ridley’s have been getting very nostalgic about the wonderful Christmases they’ve enjoyed growing up. Think space hoppers under the tree, harmonicas in stockings and battling your siblings the whole of Boxing Day on who had the best yo-yo tricks. Oh, can we have a time machine for Christmas?

As part of the Ridley’s Retro Xmas giveaway, they are inviting everyone to share their childhood Christmas Day photos and all those perfectly plastic, colourful toys we received. So, in the spirit of a good old giveaway, out came those beloved family albums, where I’ve had an enormous amount of fun looking back on Christmases of past. Here’s me with the dolls house my dad lovingly made for me; I’m told he spent hours and hours after work in the garage hiding away from me to make this in time for Christmas. What makes this memory even more special is that I’ve recently passed this dolls house down to my daughter to love and cherish.


FullSizeRenderIf you’d like to be in for the chance of winning a Christmas stocking filled to the brim with Ridley’s goodies, all you need to do is head on over to the Ridley’s Facebook page and share your retro Xmas photo. http://ow.ly/VqcX4. There will also be daily prizes awarded from the 8th, even more chance of winning! Don’t forget you must like the Ridley’s page to be entered into the draw.

There will also be a special What Mummy Thinks prize awarded by myself to one of my lucky readers who enter the #RidleysRetroXmas competition.


So take a trip down memory lane, get festive and have fun!
