Friday FRENZY Famous Celebrity FUN!!!

Posted underA day in my lifeBlogCharityCompetitions & Giveaways on2012-07-27 02:48:01

I’m settling back into the swing of things after having a lovely visit with my family and friends overseas. I’m obviously still a bit jetlagged because I only woke up at 10am and realised it was FRIDAY FRENZY time – yeeeehar!!!!

It was fabulous to see everyone again after soooooooooo long and it felt wonderful to ‘take up where we left off’ and it was comforting that everyone was ‘JUST THE SAME’- nothing’s changed!

Well, ONE person seems to have changed….

LOOK how tall
Nelson Mandela’s got???

Nelson Mandela - Johannesburg airport

Ha! Ha! Just kidding!!!!!

This is me posing with aΒ  bead-work statue of Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg airport, which has been made to commemorate his 94 birthday on the 18th of July.
I was sooooo excited to ‘see him’ eventhough it was only beads that I stopped a total stranger passing by to take this photo!!!! For this Friday Frenzy I thought we’d have a bit of fun with famous celebrities…..

Sooooooooooooooooooooooo what are we getting up to THIS Friday?

To enter this Friday Frenzy – all you have to do is tell me which FUNKYFRIENDSFACTORY TOY you think would best suit YOUR FAVOURITE CELEBRITY and you can win the pattern you suggested for them!!!

So let me go first:

I think Nelson Mandela would LOVE a Honey Teddy. He has done so much for others and especially for children, with the Nelson Mandela Childrens Fund. I think he would really enjoy having a Honey Teddy Bear of his own knowing that she is the official pattern for the
Billion Bears Charity Drive>>and that so many people have made and donated teddies like her to children all around the world, or to raise funds for the charities closest to their hearts!

Now your turn:

Leave a comment below toΒ  let me know which FUNKYFRIENDSFACTORY TOY suits YOUR FAVOURITE CELEBRITY!

I will draw a winner on Sunday…. so everyone gets a chance to enter!

  1. Johnny Depp is my favourite celebrity and I think he would love Ozzie Octopus as it would remind him of Pirates of the Carribean films lol

  2. I think that Robert Redford would like a Stu the Sea Turtle because Stu reminds us of the importance of clean water.

  3. Hey Beth – I always found the octopus tentacles in those films so squeamy!!!! BUT love Johnny Depp! Cool idea for RR, Charlotte and he’s quite dreamy too! πŸ™‚

  4. I don’t have a fave celebrity so I’m going by the last movie I watched :). I think Ben Stiller would like Puppy Dog Pete so his character in “Meet the Parents” and Puppy Dog Pete can go up against Jack Burns (Rober De Nero) and Jinxy the cat πŸ™‚

  5. I would give Izzy Insomniac Bear to US President Barack Obama, because with all the important decisions he has to make, I’m guessing he suffers from insomnia at times.

  6. Jimmy Fallon and I think he would love Charlie Cockatoo! I think he would be great sitting with him on his late night tv show!

  7. I love Colin firth especially in pride and prejudice and see him wooing Elizabeth Bennett with lambkins lamb

  8. I think that Pauley Perrette fom NCIS would go well with hippo hether because hippo hether reminds me of her every time I see it as her chcharacter Abby has a stuffed toy hippo in the show.

  9. Josh Gates travels all over the world so I am going to say he would like a koala bear!

  10. I’m a fan of Stephen Fry. I think he would like a Party Animal, they both have a certain undefinable charm, lots of character and Animal would remind him that the dark days of depression do not last for ever.

  11. Laim Neeson is my fab for that gorgeous husky voice and I think he’d team up well with Larry the Lion!!

    Comment by Britney Noble on July 28, 2012 at 8:54 am

  12. I think Lamkins lamb would suit Chris O’Donnell because he has five young children, and every home with children needs at least one cute and cuddly lamkins (my daughter’s is called lammy, and she desperately wants me to make her another, or perhaps a whole family of lambs!).
