The newly launched Rastamouse magazine is running an exclusive competition inviting children to design a cool new friend for Rastamouse on his TV show. The winning mouse character will appear on the second series of the show later this year and the winner will receive a framed picture of their character on the set with Rastamouse. Entries are now open until 15 July 2012 inviting young designers aged three to seven to take part. The winner will be announced in August 2012.*
Rastamouse magazine is a four-weekly title based on the popular CBeebies programme which follows the adventures of Rastamouse and his crime-busting mouse reggae band, The Easy Crew. Targeted at pre-school boys and girls, the new title is the only pre-school magazine that encourages children to investigate and solve a mystery. The magazine encourages children to learn about respect, understanding and to foster self-confidence, whilst helping Rastamouse to solve a mystery.
Stephanie Cooper, Editor of Rastamouse magazine said: “We are delighted to launch this exclusive competition which gives young fans the chance to see their creation appear alongside their favourite reggae-playing, crime-busting mouse. I am looking forward to seeing the imaginative responses from our readers who I am sure will create a fantastic companion for Rastamouse to help him ‘make a bad ting good”
Rastamouse said: “Mi lovin’ all da messages wi getting’ bout mi new magazine an dat drawin’ competition gettin’ all dem likkle ones doin’ wicked creative stuff n ting! Wi cyan’t wait ta see dem pictures!”
Rastamouse magazine launched on 13 June priced at £2.35 and is now available at all major retailers and independents around the UK.
