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!

    I hadn’t seen this contest until the “I Get Around” clue came out, and that’s a dead giveaway for what’s in the box.

    It is obviously PARIS HILTON! Keeping her locked in that box without food or water seems rather inhumane, but I’m sure she’s appreciative. It keeps her out of trouble, from being photographed by the paparazzi and from binging on bon-bons.

  2. Kim:

    That would be the rare cow print(er)…the cows in my barn would like to know how you got one when they’ve been on the waiting list for 12 years! This rare machine prints fabulous Moo products with just a touch of a button and in record time!

  3. Charlotte Barnard:

    Hmmm we get around…rubbers? a large roll of really cool paper secured with a giant rubberband?

  4. Trish:

    Hmmmm I’d hope it’s a full tiki bar with your own personal cabana boy/girl – Viva summer!!!

  5. Phil:

    The world’s first Whiskey powered Segway Personal Transporter. You can use it motor about the warehouse or dip a sipping straw in the tank and you’ll soon forget why you needed to be going anywhere anyway.

  6. Teresa:

    It’s a do-it-yourself beach kit, complete with white sands, seashells, cabana boys, froufrou drinks with little paper umbrellas, and a couple of gulls that make a racket, poop on your beach towel and steal your tropical fruit salad!

  7. Jose-Luis Ayala:

    Inside the box is a little “equatorial bear”. He’s called an “equatorial bear” because his mother is from the south pole and his father from the north pole.

  8. Blanche:

    The Easter Bunny …..

  9. Jade:

    A calf puller for all the baby moo’s that are born

  10. Zachary:

    The box contains a cow with no legs, A.K.A. ground beef.

  11. Bri:

    You finally found Waldo.

  12. Sharlene Black:

    I was going to say s drum kit for adding that rugged look to any business card but after subjecting my husband to the beach boys he came straight out with it – is it by any chance a corner cutting machine? Either that or your branching out into circle cards/stickers.

  13. Manda7:

    a super cool button machine!?!?!!?

  14. julie bareham:

    It’s not me I never get a round !

  15. Matthew:

    I think it is some kind of corner rounding device, or circle cutting for the cards you make!

  16. Tony:

    “phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range”

  17. Jenn:

    printer/copier/scanner 3 in 1?

  18. Jenn:

    A person waiting to pop out of a cake waiting to pop out of the box?

  19. Michaela:

    A letterpress! A letterpress! Tell me MOO is starting to do letterpress. Please, oh please…

  20. Sarah Caulfield-Ware:

    An oompa loompa?!

  21. Lisa Cox:

    A Giant Papier Mache Troll Doll made entirely out of MOO cards!

  22. Jenelle:

    A big comfy rolling chair!

  23. Jenelle:

    can i borrow someone elses idea- its totally gotta be ROUND post cards or business card!

  24. Matt Kreiling:

    You say what’s in the box rocks,
    But the extra tic-tocks sucks
    For those of us watching clocks.

    While I really want to take a guess,
    The time is really starting to press,
    And I need to take the time to assess:

    Should I be clever, witty, or dumb,
    Let other funny people get the plum,
    Or should I stop trying to walk and chew gum?

    Yet I’ll still keep wasting time,
    Making up this radical rhyme,
    And waiting on that delivery of mine,

    No matter what’s in the container,
    Moo marketing has the right to be vainer,
    Because though it seems like a no-brainer,

    It really took some smarts,
    Because once the guessing starts,
    It’s super hard to depart.

  25. Cecily:

    I’ve got it. I know it. Jackpot. Woo!

    It’s the smallest umbrella in the world isn’t it?

  26. Gaia:

    a super dooper bread machine? does it makes cup-cakes, too? xx

  27. Rayla:

    It must be your new moo cards that play either an awesome song, or a personalized recorded message!

  28. Gabriele:

    New printer? Or maybe the Arch of Designers Alliance :O

  29. Anne:

    It’s a RECYCLING BIN!!!

  30. Heidi:

    Bongos, Coconuts, a round tuit… a cow-sized bottle of sunscreen

  31. Victor Zuniga:

    Damn it!!!

    No wonder it hadn’t arrived… I sent the chupacabras to the wrong address… please send it back!

    Thank you!!

  32. Angela Thomas:

    A tiny letterpress machine? Or, a giant resin Moo mascot? I’ll take either! (^_^)

  33. Lauren:

    a “just add water” medieval castle

  34. faheema:

    a union of a unicorn on a unicycle?

  35. Karen G:

    Why does it need to contain anything? Isn’t the box enough for you people?

  36. Jennifer Ostero:

    I get around? It’s got to be a toy car from a kinder egg… easter IS next weekend after all!

  37. Seth Frazee:

    Hmm.. Beach Boys singing about getting around.. Is it a segway so Moo employees can get around in a more “green” way. Cheers!

  38. Christy:

    The box must contain the unicycle that speedy, well-balanced MOO shipping staff will use to hand-deliver orders to their favourite customers.

  39. Connie:

    I get around on the town, hmmm five harmonius Americans in striped shirts?

  40. Connie:


  41. Holly T Burrows:

    A chocolate card making machine

  42. Connie:

    Vintage Stratocaster wrapped in striped fabric?

  43. Connie:

    I like the idea of the machine–how about a giant die cut machine for creating rock n roll bands? Punch them out and turn them on!

  44. Kelli:

    it’s a mini moose! moo’s new mascot. (and his friend, squirrel, of course)

  45. Holly:

    Foamcore to make LIFESIZE SELF-PORTRAITS– can be used for overweening self-worship, burglar deterrents when placed by uncurtained windows, or in passenger seats to use road lanes restricted for cars occupied by two or more.

  46. Gaia:

    or are you going to make pins? MOO-D pins, even??? I’d have them.

  47. Shannon:

    Tallahassee, Florida.

  48. Gaia:

    ahahahahah. I love Jo’s Moo-niverse idea. I vote for her! Pocket collider & Moo-niverse. Brilliant.

  49. Lorretta Mendoza:

    Could it be a round beach ball?
