This giveaway has ended. Winners are announced here.
Welcome to Lissie & Lilly's first ever giveaw-
Lissie: Stop! You're doing our job! We're supposed to present the first, ever, ultimate, ultra amazing, super fantastic, roll a potato down Mount Everest giveaway!
Lilly: Well I don't know if it's near as exciting as you make it sound Lissie.
Lissie: That's what marketing is Lilly! Selling manure as gold!
Lissie: Alright everyone! We're here to tell you today about this one of a kind, super rare, irresistible chance to win a free gift that was a free gift from us!
Lilly: You're confusing people Lissie. Let me explain, our Big Person was-
Lissie: Mad! Foolish! Daft beyond Pluto!
Lilly: -brave enough to attend the release party at the American Girl store for the new Girl of the Year, Grace Thomas. At the store, they were giving out free gifts to the attendees. Our Big Person-
Lissie: Conned the souls off shoes!
Lilly: -was fortunate enough to receive several extra gifts because the people she went with didn't want theirs.
(Apparently they were there for the historicals and thought Grace was the newest member of BeForever.)
Lissie: Don't keep people in suspense Lilly! Let's show them what's in the envelopes!
Lissie: Presenting... A red... modesty skirt for Christmas trees?
Lilly: It's an apron Lissie!
Lilly: See? It has Grace Thomas' logo on the center.
Lissie: Must be awful full of herself to plaster her name everywhere. A logo! At 10 years old!
Lilly: There are two large pockets at the bottom.
Lissie: To hold her ego.
Lissie: We can market better than that Lilly. Let's put them on and show everyone all the things you can do in them!
Lilly: I'm not sure if there are a lot of options Lissie. There's only so much you can do in an apron.
Lissie: That's because you're not thinking dangerous enough! I'll show you!
Lissie: You can wear your apron while boiling scalding hot water to vanquish your enemies!
Lilly: Or use the water to make coffee or tea, preferably in your French press since Grace is visiting France.
Lissie: You can wear it as you play with fire! Literally!
Lilly: Lissie! Get down from there before you get hurt! That's dangerous! You'll give people troublesome notions!
Lissie: Life with an apron is nothing but troublesome notions!
Lilly: How about showing them what the apron is actually used for? To protect your clothes as you make delicious food like Grace does while learning to bake. She even has a mixer just like this!
Lissie: But a better use is to wear it to protect your clothes from stains as you wreck havoc at the American Girl headquarters for not yet creating a doll of color! 13 GotY dolls, and only 1 Latina, 1 half Asian, 1 half Hawaiian, and NOT A SINGLE BLACK DOLL! For shame! Taste my wrath!
Lilly: AHHH!!! Lissie! That's a real knife!!!
Lissie: Of course it is! I can't wreck havoc with plastic! Even if American Girl tries to foil me by producing plastic accessories, I still have our Big Person's Cleaver of Racial Equality!
(I love Grace's collection and think she's a lovely doll, but really AG, it's time to make a doll of color. It's past time.)
Lissie: Now that you've seen some great ways to utilize this apron, you can enter for your chance to win not 1, not 2, but one of 3 aprons we're giving away! Get into mischief L&L style by emulating our style!
Lilly: It's a miracle we demonstrated everything without losing any essential vinyl parts. If you would like a chance to win one of these aprons, please follow the guidelines below to enter, no purchase necessary.
Lissie: Unless you want to. We haven't decided what we're selling, but it'll be a mix of bladderdash and poppycock. Oranges not included.
The giveaway will run from Jan. 5 - Jan. 15 (midnight Central USA time).
Comment with what your doll would make/do while wearing Grace's apron!
