Pinterest Scavenger Hunt - Tonner Doll Company

Play our Pinterest Contest and Win

We were so excited by the response to our first Pinterest Contest we worked hard on making our 2nd Pinterest contest even more fun. This time it’s a digital Scavenger Hunt on our website: finding dolls, outfits and/or Character Figures from our current collections and even from the past. Pin all 8 photos from our currently available collections and be entered to win a Cami Summer Swing. On top of that we are introducing a creative expression element to our contest which is completely optional. There is not one doll to be won, but two, and you can even win both!  On any of your contest pins you can add a short heartfelt, artful, or personal experience about what is being pinned and get a chance to win 3 extra entries in the overall random drawing and the beautiful Tropical – Marilyn Monroe dressed doll.The best description will be judged by the Tonner staff. Below are the details on how to play each phase of the contest. The Contest runs through Tuesday 12:00 noon EST Sept 10th, 2013. The winner will be announced on approximately Thursday September 19th, 2013 (new date).

The Prizes

Prize 1: The random drawing will produce one winner (though additional entries through extra credit will increase your chances to win). That winner will receive a Summer Swing Cami dress doll:

 + note: while it is technically possible to repin contest images from other people’s boards, this can result in disqualification for entry, as it is a shortcut in a Scavenger Hunt. The fun is in finding the images. It is possible to tell if a pin is a repin. Pin directly from our site. Feel free to pin as much as you like from our site, beyond the official entry pins. Sharing your love of Tonner is what it is all about. 

For Optional Extra Credit – Double Your Chances to Win

Pin all 3 of these off our website Archive for an extra entry. These are beautiful dolls or Character Figures from our Tonner past!

  • Include these 3 dolls from our Archive on the same board as your 8 other pins
  • Pin all 3 and receive an extra entry into our random drawing, doubling your chances to win
  • Hashtag each pin #tonnerscavengerhunt in each Pin description.

Optional Extra Extra Credit – Win with Style, Express Yourself

write a great description and possibly win 3 extra entries
  • Every pin has a description box. On any pin express how you feel about the doll or character figure* – Pinterest limits descriptions to 500 characters.
  • Hashtag each Pin #tonnerscavengerhunt in the description box.
  • The Tonner staff will pick a winner of the best written contribution, and they will receive 3 extra entries into the random drawing

 *the description is judged on personal expression and love of the doll or character figure. It can take any form, from a beautiful description, to a short paragraph or a few sentences on what it feels like to collect that doll or Character Figure, or even a made up character vignette. Pinterest limits descriptions to 500 characters. Be creative, be yourself, be economical with words. Each pin description entered is judged individually – all 8 of the basic current collection photos must be pinned to qualify for this element of the contest. There will be one winner, and that winner will receive 3 extra entries into our random drawing, as well as “Tropical’ from our Marilyn Monroe Collection

When pinning you can pin to a doll board that you already have, or you can create a new one for the contest; it is up to you (no “shared” boards though, one board per person). When you pin make sure you add the contest hashtag (#tonnerscavengerhunt) so we can easily confirm your pin, and if you express yourself about the doll, Character Figure or outfit in the description your pin will be entered into the Extra Credit contest for best Pin Description to be judged by the Tonner Staff. The winner gets 10 extra entries into the random drawing, significantly increasing their chances to win the prize.
