Summer prize giveaway with Hartleys!

Get Creative to Win This Summer with Hartleys

As parents, we recite our battle cry daily: ‘tidy your room!’ But our children seem permanently perplexed as to how their rooms get messy in the first place.

At Hartleys, we realised that there must be a secret monster who hides in our children’s rooms. They wait until your child’s back is turned and then jump out and pull toys from their toyboxes, litter the floor with books and drip yoghurt across the carpet.

Every child has a Messy Little Monster, and we want to see them. So, this summer, we’re inviting children aged 12 and under to introduce us to their messy little monsters with an exciting and creative competition. And it’s the perfect activity to keep your kids occupied as well!

Competition details:

We love to read all about your messy little monsters, so tell us about them! Write a short story, pen a poem or even create a little limerick, all about what your messy little monster gets up to. Post your creation as a comment on our Facebook page, or post a photo (just make sure we can read it!).


One lucky winner will receive our fantastic Hartleys kids’ bookshelf, so those books have somewhere to live where the messy little monster can’t find them. And the winning child will receive a selection of 10 wonderful books.

The competition is open until the 30th September 2017, and the winner will be announced shortly after. Good luck!
