Have you seen the hit movie WALL-E, yet? It is about a little robot and how he deals with the used up world that the humans left behind. I won’t spoil the plot in case you haven’t seen it.
We watched the movie for the first time over the holiday break. We got a great deal on the DVD, so it cost less than the price of seeing it in the movie theater.
My kids really enjoyed this family friendly movie (the adults did, too), so I thought I would check to see what types of promotions are out there that have to do with the movie and the characters. Here is what I found.
Eureka is having an Out of this World Sweepstakes. The grand prize is an all-expense paid trip for a family of four to California to get an exclusive tour of Pixar Animated Studios where WALL-E was made. I am a big fan of Pixar, especially after reading a book about the company, so this would be a really fun trip for everyone. Other prizes, such as Eurkea vacuums are also being given away. To enter, go to eureka.com/walle
Artua is offering a complete WALL-E icon set for free to download. You can turn your computer into WALL-E and your media player into his lady love. Unfortunately for me, the icons are only available in PC format. Click here. http://www.artua.com/portfolio/icons/freeicons/
You can download a free Wall-E board game. It is called the Treasure Race game, and it looks like a lot of fun. There are a series of PDF files that you can download to make up the game, including a game die! Click here http://www.walle-game.com/
Disney is offering a lot of free online Wall-E stuff, such as games, icons, Build-a-Bot (my son will love that), videos from the movie and more. Play the treasure game to find items that will earn you extra Disney point for free merchandise. Click here http://adisney.go.com/disneyvideos/animatedfilms/wall-e/flash_site.html
