Want Prizes? BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys Has Over $250,000 Worth of ’Em to Give Away!

Come to this year’s BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys and be in to win! Every girl who comes to the ZM Girlzone, for example, will go into the draw to win a stylish ‘Swim Spa Pool’ provided by Great Barrier Reef Pools, complete with installation – an amazing prize worth over $25,000!

The ZM Girlzone is designed as a girl-only escape from the testosterone, noise and general boyishness that is Big Boys Toys. Themed around a ‘beach’ – with comfy couches, massage therapists, music, chocolate and hot promo boys – the ZM Girlzone is the perfect retreat for girlfriends, wives and mums attending Big Boys Toys. As well as packed goodie bags, the Cut Above Academy team will be giving free hair cuts and styles, with nail treatments, massages and a spray tan service available over the three days.

Also on offer this year is the Ultimate Big Boys Toys Backyard, with 4 Seasons and Radio Hauraki putting together a prize package of quality BBQ and outdoor equipment worth around $20,000!

“The show is really turning into a bonanza this year,” says Rob Eliott, the show’s marketing manager. “It’s amazing that there’s over a quarter of a million dollars in prizes up for grabs!”

The BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys online club is in full swing, with a photo competition to find the ultimate Big Boys’ Toy. Entrants can text or email a photo of themselves and their Big Boys’ Toy in action to Images are then posted on the show website and the best dozen will be displayed at the show, receive an originaliTees T-shirt with the image printed on it, and will also go into the draw for a major prize.

Miada is going all out at the 2005 BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys by running two fitness competitions and an invitational heavyweight strongman event in the Arena. The prize pool for the three competitions has now swelled to over $15,000 in cash and prizes, with over $8,000 up for grabs in the national fitness competitions by public entrants over the three days of the show!

Guinness is also giving away hundreds of prizes during the BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys, as they’re celebrating their new draught in a bottle. Due to a revolutionary piece of technology – the rocket widget, which cost Guinness $13.5 million and took several years to develop – the creamy head Guinness is famous for remains on the beer, inside the bottle, right down to the last sip, so don’t miss the craic at their stand!

The 9th annual BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys returns to the Auckland Showgrounds in Greenlane from November 11th to November 13th – an event not to be missed.
