Over in these here parts, we’re starting Dad Bonanza 2011, the week long countdown to the best family picnicking holiday of June, Father’s Day. We’re rolling out the grill (so Dad can cook for us), hauling home the mulch and topsoil (so Dad can finish planting those annuals for us), heading to some fairs (so Dad will buy us lots of cotton candy and tickets to ride questionably-safe ferris wheels), and stocking him up with all kinds of new gadgetry (so that he can make us stuff).
Of course the best thing you can stock Dad (or Baby Daddy, or just your man) up with this summer might just be some fine, fine Sugru, which, ta-da! is exactly who is rockin’ our socks with this-right-here giveaway!
Sugru is a malleable silicone that enables a plethora of projects, as it’s water-resistant, tolerable of both heat and cold, and adheres to almost any surface you could think of. It allows you to customize your life, and make what you own last longer.
I’m serious when I say that Dad’s going to love this supply you win him all summer long; each pack in the set comes with 12 different individual packets (which I never really thought of in the context of “tiny pack” until right now), and in a whole array of colors on top of that (white will actually be included too, in addition to the selection in that image above).
We’ve been raving about the stuff since we first got our sticky little fingers into the shiny metallic packaging; there are lots of great examples of the product in action over in the Sugru gallery. If you want to check out some of my own recent Sugru projects, you should see what I made for the centerpiece, the TV, the camera, and the starfish.
But what we really want you to do is enter to win 1 of 5 Smart Hacks Super Packs of Sugru.
(That’s right. 5 winners, 5 chances to win, can I get a woo-hoo?)
Two ways to enter:
1. Leave us a comment on this post (tell us what Dad might want to hack!)
2. Tweet this: Make Dad’s summer more awesome by entering to win a Super Pack of Sugru at @merrypad. http://bit.ly/sugrufordad #dadslovesugru
We’ll be accepting entries until 10PM on Friday 6/17, which means you have over 100 hours to get your entries in this week. We’re sure that’s enough time.
P.S. Not that you wouldn’t win or anything, but you should know that starting this week, Sugru is supporting local US shipping, meaning it should be a whole hack of a lot easier to get the product state-side! (Yes, that was an intentional hack joke.)
P.P.S. Why don’t you follow @projectsugru while you’re at it.
