Who is “Dad of the Year”? Tomy award looks for most devoted father

tomy-dad-of-the-year.pngTomy and Prima Baby magazine have launched a competition to find the UK’s most devoted dad.

The Dad of the Year award celebrates the role of great dads in developing secure and happy children.

The winner will be offered the opportunity to act as a media spokesperson for Tomy’s

Freestyle baby carriers range. He will also win the fantastic prize of a luxury weekend break with spending money at a Mr. and Mrs. Smith hotel of choice, the stylish new Tomy Freestyle All Seasons Baby carrier and a hamper of pre-school toys from Tomy.

Dads or their proud partners, parents or friends, simply need to visit Tomy Dad of the Year or pick up a copy of the March issue of Prima Baby to submit an entry form by 15th March 2009 with their story; whether he delivered his baby himself, put his career on hold to stay at home or simply loves taking his share of responsibilities and spending time with his baby.

The Tomy Dad of the Year competition is open to all fathers – whether first, second or third time around – who have had a baby in the 12 months from 19th February 2008. Eight regional finalists will be selected with the winner decided by an online public vote. Online voting will go live on Tomy Dad of the Year on 23rd April 2009 with the winner announced in June.

As well as being a great competition in its own right, it’s been set up to showcase the new Tomy Freestyle baby carrier range, which includes the Classic Carrier (£27.99), the Premier Carrier (£39.99), the Premier Detachable Carrier (£49.99) and the new Tomy Freestyle All Seasons Carrier (£54.99, available from May 2009) which has a breathable fabric and an all-weather cover so parents and baby can get out what ever the forecast predicts.
