Newell Rubbermaid Scavenger Hunt

nr_logotag_hiresA couple of weeks ago, our sister company, Rubbermaid, posted a scavenger hunt on their blog and I thought to myself -”That Jim is pure genius!” (actually I’m saying that because I’m hoping he hooks me up with a new garage organizer but I did think it was a great idea) See, a lot of folks don’t realize that Graco Children’s Products is company of Newell Rubbermaid. Well we are and we’re only one of the many great brands (if I do say so myself) that are part of Newell Rubbermaid.

So I (Jim) thought it would be fun to do a quick scavenger hunt “sweepstakes” related to these Newell Rubbermaid brands and some of our online blogs and websites.

So here’s the challenge: Read the questions below and provide correct answers using the comments feature of the blog. When submitting your answers/comments, please be sure to include your email address (It will only be used to contact the winner).

Of the people who submit all the correct answers I will randomly draw a winner. The winner can choose between (1) a Graco Cool Mist Humidifier (2) a Dymo Personal Labelmaker (3) a Calphalon Omelette Pan OR (4) an 18 piece set of Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids - food storage containers.

All answers must be received by next Friday 4:00pm EST, January 16, 2009.

QUESTIONS:

1. List 5 Newell Rubbermaid brands
2. Where is Newell Rubbermaid’s headquarters located?
3. Which 3 Newell Rubbermaid brands currently have blogs & what are their addresses?
4. Name 3 Newell Rubbermaid Twitterers (and follow them!)
5. Name your favorite Newell Rubbermaid (any brand) Product

NOTE: As I receive the answers/comments, I will review them and edit the comment to only show if the answers were correct or not. I wouldn’t want to post all the answers for people to see :)

Have fun!

    4. Susan – Sharpie – loved the coverage of the snake art.
    Lindsay – Graco – Neat to share Thanksgiving Traditions and hear what other people do.
    Melissa Landis – Lovey is adorable (but so are the other families of the bloggers…I love keeping up with what parents are doing with their children…it’s like a parenting magazine online and is so very current!)
    5. My husband loves his vise-grip tools but I love the expo pens. We leave notes to each other on the bathroom mirror while we brush our teeth…to do lists, grocery lists…whatever! Sometimes I leave funny faces on the mirror so when he goes to brush his teeth he’ll have a mustasch or a funny hat! We use white boards daily at school and my students LOVE the skinny expo pens.
