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. Justin:

    An oil painting of the Jersey Shore cast resembling the last dinner.

  2. Brian Worley:

    It’s a box of stress balls ready to printed with a company logo, contact info and witty message. Then I can simply spread them around and when folks are stressed i’m already helping ease their troubles and my contact info is right at hand

  3. Ken:

    I hope (and fear) that the box contains a similar reward as that found in the 1970s hit song by The Original Caste “One Tin Soldier”. So my guess is that there is a note that simply date “Peace on Earth”

  4. Kimberly:

    5 pairs of tight pants and striped shirts?

    Does the box harmonize beautifully? If Brian Wilson is in there, you should probably slip him some crackers or something, he must be starving.

  5. Jojo:

    Well after watching Moo’s special ‘Clue’ it’s all become sooooo clear…
    So what’s in the box?
    Well it’s obviously little jelly baby men ‘Other designs available.’
    in striped suits, jumping up & down, getting their groove on to their
    oober groovey retro sounds…(take a breath at this point)…..
    all the while being spun around on their postcard platform space rockets…
    (made at moo- obviously) which …wait for it….get them around…..
    (no groaning please).
    And now I’m going to go off any draw them :)

  6. KristinaB.:

    On second thought, it’s probably a bunch of ninjas. ;)

  7. Sigurbjörg María:

    I bet it’s Stephen Fry on a Penny-Farthing!

  8. sik:

    Giant moominator cards for birthdayers and giftoholics inside :) )) Each slice waiting in the boxy is about blowing* receiver’s mind!

    *Safety notice: wet from cries/clean from LOLs floor expected after opening

  9. Mary Jo Zilveti:

    Tons of easter eggs (not the chocolate ones neither colored eggshells), but easter eggs hidden in apps, you can ask geeks or Bill Gates’ developers software people, or even Google, to be given to a special customer who only uses Moo cards.

  10. Kristina Konen:

    Schrödinger’s cat! Meow!

  11. Kathy:

    Just seen the Beach Boys clue and now its obvious..from their shirts.

    Its a stick of Brighton Rock!

  12. Cassandra Claire:

    It’s a Christmas-Gram! Forty-four small people traveled from Loomaland to sing you song and deliver high-quality cocoa beans. I mean, I should know since I sent it! :)

  13. Olivia Wall:

    Life size Brian Wilson wax figure à la Madame Tussauds.

  14. Dana Rice:

    Inside is the creator of the font Comic Sans. Someone finally found him and is bringing him to MOO justice!

  15. Ashley:

    Is it a giant raisin wearing Elton John style sunglasses dancing (well, wobbling) to The Police’s Walking On The Moon, sipping a piña colada whilst cuddling a koala bear that looks like Piers Morgan?

  16. Naiffer:

    After the break-in from few weeks back, MOO hired a head hunter to catch them. What’s inside the box? An special delivery from the hunter!!

  17. liz:

    round cards :)

  18. Tina:

    A moooody little gnome?

  19. Deb Gale:

    It’s a new little Moo-ey cute CAR!

  20. S.R. Dickie:

    …a MOOster seat, for any employees under 4’9″.

  21. Lucinda Brown:

    Hello Moo,

    You guys make me laugh all the time.

    I think that the box contains ….

    melamine plates!!

    I would love love love if you offered those. I would make 1,000,000 of them.

    I have kids, and we have a lot of them in our house.

    Hope I win.

    Your Truly,
    Lucinda Brown

    p.s. Did I mention I am half British? I am a British passport holder (in addition to being American). Hoping that will make you like me more.

    p.p.s. If it isn’t plates, perhaps you should offer that! You don’t even have to pay me royalties for this brilliant idea.

  22. vieta:

    a cow!!!!!!!!

  23. evan:

    it’s obviously a box filled with MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOlah

    ..My attempt at a cow joke was an udder failure..

  24. Sheila Latta:

    Is it a super cool new printer?

  25. kate:

    Is it a flock of birds, ready to launch the new “COO” line of carrier pigeon postcards?

  26. Angelique:

    With the addition of “I get around,” I’m thinking some sort of transportation: a unicycle it is!

  27. Marion:

    I hope that in the box is the prototype of the new moo gift cards so all moo customers can send super moo cards to friends and family for birthdays, christmas, valentines… oh what the hell who needs a reason to send them out.
    Send them just because…

  28. Matthew Smith:

    round cards or coasters, c’mon!

  29. Benigno:

    A Moochine that will free your time for love to print even more?

  30. Michelle:

    A new printer. :D

    But for a more fun guess, let’s go with time machine. Back to revolutionize printing in the past!

  31. Susan:

    It is a round bale for all the Moo(s) …

  32. Laura:

    A pony-sized cow :) Moo?

  33. Jan Rossi:

    Mooooove over straight lined business cards – inside this box is a creative, snap your fingers off crazy edge cutter add-on to your big cutting machine that will give me a whacky business card edge for all my uber creative moo cards……bye, bye, boring! hello curvy!!? DID I WIN???? (secretly, I would like a curved card)

  34. alex taylor:

    a porta-loo??!
    a really really big surprise!?
    a hat for a giant?
    a bogart?
    the boss of Moo hiding so as to spy on what you do during the day?!
    the easter bunny?

  35. justin m:

    hey… you really need to poke holes in that thing if you’ve got the beach boys in there. and if you do in fact have a very small pandora holding her own smaller box inside that big box, i wouldn’t even open the bigger box… just to be safe. but if that’s a segway, then you should ride it.

  36. Cynthia McNair:

    It’s the plasma Cutter my husband has been waiting for, but somehow, it was delivered to you instead!

  37. CR:

    Based on the video which you posted as a clue, I’m wondering if it’s equipment for printing round business cards or suchlike…

  38. JB:

    My guess: The first shipment of a life time supply of chocolate chips to go with all the Moo’s!

  39. Cathy Holtom:

    It’s an old fashioned printing press for emergencies!

  40. Zach:

    “The Aristocrats!”

  41. Kevin:

    Leg lamp!

  42. Dawn Vaughn:

    I’m going with the MOOd ink, however if that is not the correct guess, then MOObe it is a gigantic Easter Bunny. You never know, ya know?

  43. Megan G:

    An LP label maker? Long live vinyl!

  44. Nancy Terrell:

    I knOw! I knOw! All the things that we can dO with rOund cut thing from MOO.
    Put a pizza on the back, Or baseball in your cap,

    Easy peasy lemon squeezy… This box has magical never-ending color cartridges for your printers and a magical bowl of never-ending snacks for Little Moo and Big Moo (since they’ll never get a break now).

  48. G2:
