Cheshire lass, 8, wins Playmobil vid challenge
Brit answer to Burton's Alice in Wonderland
An eight-year-old Cheshire girl has won Playmobil's "The Next Episode" video challenge, with a rather good interpretation of Alice in Wonderland.
With a bit of help from mum and dad, Mia Jones put together this low-budget Brit answer to Tim Burton's recent CGI-heavy adapatation of the Lewis Carroll classic:
Mia's mum Sara Lambert explained: “Mia’s love of Playmobil seems to have grown and developed with her as she's got older. She now plays with the toys in completely different ways. From the days of simple role playing she has now developed an elaborate and sophisticated land of Playmobilia."
Jamie Dickinson, Playmobil UK Marketing Manager, chipped in with: “We received some truly creative and inspirational entries and such a wide variety. We took a lot of time to decide which entries really brought the world of Playmobil to life and this is where Mia’s stood above the rest.”
Mia's winning entry has secured her £500 and a year’s supply of Playmobil - an impressive booty comprising "the full range every three months and a smaller product offering every month". ®
El Reg's own Playmobil silliness can be found right here.
In my time as a primary school teacher I have encountered plenty of kids around this age perfectly capable of putting something like this together with assistance from adults or older kids for the technical aspects. It is the adults who get their heads stuck so far up their own butts that can't seem to do anything other than sit drooling in front of the telly, then try to claim that just because they don't have the ability, than it must be impossible for kids.
Give that girl a job animating the Reg's Playmobil creations.
better than the 3D tripe i got roped into seeing recently
This video is full of win, btw.
Just goes to show that a job like this needn't be saucy to be good (although that certainly helps!)
Let's see El Reg top it.
A year's supply?
What does she do, eat it?
