BEVERLY, Mass., Nov. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Is there anything more important in a tween's life than her family, her pet, and her BFF? Best friends share secrets, borrow clothes, match outfits, listen to the same music and enjoy the same activities. FashionPlaytes (www.fashionplaytes.com), the first girl-driven fashion and style destination, is giving parents the opportunity to win a shopping spree for their FPgirl (www.FPgirl.com) and her best friend in the company's first BFF Sweepstakes.
Winning is always fun, but winning a shopping spree (in the form of two $250 Visa Gift Cards) that your FPgirl can use alongside her best friend is even better. Entry forms for the BFF Sweepstakes are available on Facebook and on the FashionPlaytes website. The Sweepstakes entries must come from adults (18 and up), so get parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and older cousins on board and enter today – each Facebook share generates an additional entry! Watch your in-box: Winners will be announced December 21.
While only adults can enter the Sweepstakes, FPgirls can get in on the best friends fun with a special BFF Design Contest. FPgirls can use their creativity and sense of style to create a design that shows the world their BFF spirit. The contest ends November 30. FPgirls will vote on the designs on FPgirl.com, and winners will be selected on December 8.
"Each of us has special memories with our best friends that we treasure," said Sarah McIlroy, founder and CEO of FashionPlaytes.com. "FPgirl allows tweens to express their own sense of style and creativity by giving them the opportunity to design the very clothing they wear. Through our FPgirl.com BFF Sweepstakes and BFF Design Contest, we're allowing parents and their FPgirls to embrace the spirit of BFFs."
