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?”
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…)
-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!
A new bike for David Langer mis-delivered?
A new Moo mascot, fresh from Japan it’s an automated autonomous walking cow man thing. You will make it deliver hot drinks and food around the office and if you give it’s belly a squeeze it will release a little Moooo from it’s mouth. After much abuse and mistreatment from the Moo team, it will then break free and set out to find it’s real mother in the rolling fields of the Yorkshire Dales.
Hmm. You’ve got me thinking. What could be as top secret and special as you say – yet you’re willing to leave it in the box for 2 weeks? My guess is a giant Easter egg – covered with your all time favourite Moo designs, and filled with enough mini eggs for all your dedicated customers?!
A Moo Costume for the new Mascot ???
A MOO-tasT (TM) printer manufactured especially and exclusively by Mr Willy Wonka, capable of producing flavoured inks such as fizz-wacking espresso, monstrous bilberry and spotted dick. Comes with 2 x trained oompa-loompas and comprehensive tasT-o-matic taste swatches (mind the chicken gizzard flavour, maybe save that one for the French intern).
A giant cat!
Hhhhhm i’m pretty sure there is styrofoam in this box and maybe a bit of omg bubbles paper \o/
Ok wait is that a cutting engine ? A big machine that can cut awesome crazy corners or cut out stuff from a card ? Oh no I know it is a new printer or maybe it is a huge coffee machine… Oh I got it : a cutting-printer-coffee-making machine ! Who does dare to say there is no more crazy invention in our lil world ?
This wood box teased me so much I’m wondering if it is by anyway related to screenprinting… Damn that would be crazy ! Talking about crazy I think this whole story made me a bit excited and ignite my creative mind . Yay new moo cards projects are running in my head.
it’s an inc-moo-bator with lots of little baby moos ready to be dispatched – the moo family is expanding!
The “Cut the rope” game with the cute little monster who just wants candy…
A Tardis, the only way to expand your print facilities without paying extortionate costs on premises. Oh the lengths you’ll go to to keep prices affordable for us. We thank you!
It’s just got to be one of those arty model MOO cows that have been dotted around cities over the last few years. I’ve seen some in Liverpool and Madrid.
I think eastern Pennsylvania was finally over all the cold weather and sent Punxsutawney Phil to you all. After all, that little muskrat lied to them when he predicted an early spring.
It’s a “telecopier” – based on the teleporter it doesn’t only transfer things between distances but copies/reproduces them in 3D. Being an exact replica to the original. So MOO will be producing & reproducing everything (from cards to frames) with this telecopier. Best of all? A couple of seconds after the order, everything will appear on our desk in front of the keyboard. Eleminating the classical delivery completely. While product fading-in on your desk, you will hear the sound “Delivered to you by MOO.” )))
A parallel universe where designers and their creative minions are venerated as gods. It’s camouflaged on the outside so that demando commandos (“Make the logo bigger!” Change that red to blue!” Make the logo colors match my office décor!”) can’t get in, only the nice clients would participate in a positive way can get visit.
Hmmmmmmmm . . . . . . Well looking at the box very carefully it’s quite flat and seems to be the right dimensions for a GIANT Moo mini card . . . . . . Perhaps it is a Giant Magnetic Moo mini card to stick on the front of your refrigerator .. . . . . . magnetic Moo mini cards hmmmmm.
Gigacards. Sure to make a lasting impression at ANY networking event!
A slightly smaller box, and inside that a smaller box again. And so on until there is a box half the size of normal invisibility again. (courtesy Mr O’Brian)
a mini cow?
I think it is an amazing ‘newmoo’ machine for creating ‘unmoosual’
additional items to the moo range. These might be :
moo cash cows – mini rubber cows with bendy legs that can be printed with company logo
moo zak business cards – moosical cards that play a tune when truned over
moo teasers – little chocolate sweets with honeycomb centres and printed with logos
Run out of silly ideas now – have fun !
ok, since the box seems to be large enough, how about upgrading the mini cow to a medium cow?
I kno, I kno… it’s a rainbow zebra striped clown car for little moo to drive around the country and visit customers to see how they are using their moo products… Wait a minute I didn’t kno little moo could drive! o_0
it was a cat, but now it’s a big box of nothing …
