What’s in the Box? – A MOO Competition!

6th April 2011 by Charlotte

A few days ago, we received a top secret special something that made everyone at MOO HQ very, very happy – and we hope it’s going to make you all equally happy (as soon as we’re allowed to reveal what it is). When we posted a picture on Twitter, you made us laugh so much with your impromptu guesses (yes, “Wardrobe to Narnia” and “Time Machine”, we’re talking to you) that we thought we’d have a little fun. So, over the next few weeks, we’re running a competition called “What’s in the box?”

MOO Arrival

We’re looking for the most fun and fabulous guesses you can come up with – and since we know you’re an uber-creative community, don’t be afraid to (ahem) think outside the box (Oh dear. That was terrible, wasn’t it? That’s what happens when you try to box clever…)

To enter:

-Post your guesses in the comment section below (though if you do want to put your “answer on a postcard”, you’ll get brownie points if you made it at MOO!). If you don’t see your comment immediately, it’s just because we do have to check that they are nice and clean first – remember your mother could be reading this!

-The closing date is Sunday 17 April 11.59pm PT and we’ll announce the winner on the blog in the week beginning Monday 18 April

-The final decision will be made by Lisa, our very own VP of Marketing and Product

What’s the prize, we hear you shout? Glad you asked! The person who comes up with our favourite guess will win themselves £100 / $165 to spend with MOO.

Let the guessing games begin!

  1. Cori K.:

    As I’d inadvertently said on the Beach Boys hint page:

    A small toy car, ready perhaps for cruising to a place where the kids are hip? (Like MOO HQ, of course!)

  2. bellearielparis:

    Since you gave a “Beach” Boy clue, how about an “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”?

  3. Ann Ranlett:

    It’s Secretariat from Craig Ferguson’s show. When the box is opened you all must do the “Secretariat Dance”.

  4. Sarah Hartley:

    a ton of beach balls.

  5. Noam:

    It’s a big 3d H.Q printer.
    next generation in moo’s technology
    have a good one.

  6. S. Fanara:

    The new printer that uses soy based inks to offer your customers greener ways to print our cards! ;P

  7. marianne:

    dita van teese
    is in the box for 10days by this time.

  8. Dianne:

    Perhaps in that box there is a
    ‘Minicard MiniMe’ ???

  9. alan pitchforth:

    another smaller box perhaps :0)


    a russian doll

  10. Verna:

    Hmmmm? Maybe it’s a scooter for making local deliveries.

  11. Sara Lamond:

    Quite clearly it’s a very large box, and I can only think that it might contain a MOOse. Hopefully a chocolate MOOse.

  12. Elizabeth Sheets:

    Granny in her Little Deuce Coupe…

  13. Brandi:

    Based on the latest clue, it’s either:
    1) Steve Wozniak’s Segway
    2) An even smarter SMART Car nicknamed the MiniMOOver
    3) A new MOO rolled label/sticker machine
    4) 100 Hula Hoops covered in MOO-tastic prints

  14. Rita:

    It’s a machine that permits to cut cards in any shape, so we clients can order cards whith the shape of a flower, a circle, a boat, a car, an egg, etc.
    ¿Would’nt it be great?
    Or it could be an statue of the MOO logo.

  15. teresa seavey:

    Hmm – well at my work we just got a bunch of new high tech copiers that will do everything but make coffee. Is that what it is?

  16. Faith Buisek:

    I’m guessing it’s a SEGWAY, maybe because I want one so much. It hit me (like lightning)when I watched the beach boys video….

  17. Juliet:

    It’s a widget.
    A special widget for making circular business cards.
    Or ………….. string, or nothing.

  18. liz:

    A new stamping machine, that allows you to stamp lots and lots of moo’s everywhere you go…on people’s foreheads, walls,arms and more…:)

  19. Wanda Edwards:

    Hmmm….a nice “round” slice from the Keebler tree filled with tiny cookie making elves so it will always be snack time in the office as well as a cookie with every order!!

  20. Lorna:

    Since everyone is eating healthier these days . . . the Keebler Elves are looking for a new gig. They have decided to MOOve on over to MOO and they are going to provide hours of elf entertainment, cookies, and foot/back rubs for all the staff.

  21. Ed:

    I guess, a letterpress.

  22. Dory:

    Something high tech with red beams, flashing lights and smoke! A laser engraver? :-)

  23. irina:

    a board for employee of the month photos rescued from a skip outside?

  24. kimberlyjt:

    A printing machine for books

  25. Dee Elgie:

    Go on, admit it, you got a new trolley for carting your boxes of loveliness round with didn’t you!

  26. Michael:

    Looks like it might be the fabled Lost Ark that that Indiana Jones guy supposedly found….

  27. Debra:

    Everyone that’s taken out a super injunction this week?

  28. lucy:

    I immediately thought some kind of eco-printer (not sure what one is) but in actual fact, I think it is a garden gnome robot which makes cups of tea & biscuits.

  29. Ewan Cameron:

    It’s a circular cutting machine for new circular business/mini cards.

  30. MattD:


  31. Mark:

    Box of singing, dancing chipmunks… absoposilutely without a doubt! Well, that’s what I made up in my head from the Beach Boys clue! :)

  32. Mark:

    Michael Jackson!

  33. Mark:

    Phew! Only 2 more days and I’ll be outta here!

  34. Víctor:

    OMG!!! The space cows are here already!!!

  35. Soraya:

    A big sangria jar with some tapas. Su-u-u-mmer is coming… Olé!

  36. Rebecca:

    Is it a large inflated beach ball? Or maybe a sandcastle sculpted into the shape of a cow?!

  37. Naledi:

    Card printing machine

  38. Koko:

    It’s got to be the new MooMobile bike for helping the Moo team to get around.

  39. Gail Schechter:

    I think it’s a segway!!!!

  40. Jenn Erickson/Rook No. 17:

    SEGWAY — I’m imagining a tricked-out Segway — with a a custom paint job featuring the art of one of the incredible Moo artists.


    SEGUE — The little Alien dude from Spaceballs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XU1MAokrrUk) is going to jump out of a life-sized wax model of Ryan Seacrest and sing “Hello My Baby” and then segue into a finale of “Puttin’ on the Ritz”.

  41. Alicia:

    I think it is a machine that puts sound into moo cards.

  42. Jeremy K:

    A Segway

  43. Melinda:

    What’s in the box?? Jack
    (‘up to you to interpret the many meanings of that word: jack-in-the-box, a hoisting device, electrical connector, money, a face card, etc, etc–how fun to open the box and find out!)

  44. KT:

    A MASSIVE game of Twister that everyone at Moo, and their families plus all us customers can play!

  45. KT:

    The Summer! You’re going to bring it to us early!

  46. katy:

    Barak Obama’s birth certificate.

  47. Delboy:

    I think it might be “A Round Too’it” so now hen you can’t be bothered working you can just say that when there’s time I’ll get around too’it.
