Fisher-Price® recently launched the Little People™ Animal Sounds Contest with help from celebrity zoologist and children’s television show host, Jarod Miller! The Little People™ Animal Sounds Contest calls on parents like you to submit a video of your child demonstrating his or her best roar, grrrr or squawk for the chance to win a $10,000 cash prize and a trip to Fisher-Price headquarters (in East Aurora, NY) for a special photo shoot! Check out the contest launch video below.

The Little People Animal Sounds Contest is open now and runs until November 30, 2011. Additional rules, information and more are available at https://animalsounds.fisher-price.com/.
In addition to the Grand Prize winner, ten First Prize winners will receive a Zoo Talkers toy prize pack. All successful submissions will be entered for a chance to win one of 100 Zoo Talkers Safari Trucks in the Animal Sounds Sweepstakes. I was given the opportunity to check out the Little People Zoo Talkers Animal Sounds Zoo, and it is adorable! When you place any ZooTalkers animal in the paw pad in the hut, children can hear its name and the sound it makes! The Animal Sounds Zoo includes a Zookeeper Zack figure, a Polar Bear, a Gorilla, and a Lion ZooTalkers figure, but you can also purchase additional animals (like a penguin, alligator, ostrich and more!) that will work with the zoo. There are several other really cute features on the Animal Sounds Zoo, too. For instance, you can send animals down a waterslide! The Fisher-Price Zoo Talkers Animal Sounds Zoo would make an adorable gift for a young child in your life. I hope you’ll check it out wherever Fisher-Price toys are sold. And be sure to submit that adorable video of your child or grandchild making an animal noise in the Little People Animal Sounds Contest! Roarrrrrrr!
