Just being nosy- I'm excited because I've been selected to test some nappies and I've only just finished the Hoops and Crosses crisps that were sent out a few weeks ago!

I heart Mumsnet grin

And the chocolate porridge.

I won a picture once, but never received it. That was ages ago, and I still think of that picture sometimes...sad

Chocolate porridge
a ride on toy
some kitchen wipes
am about to test some nappies and test drive a car

Oh, and the Origins face serum stuff. It was great, but £££.

Oh, think I got some little cubes of cheese too...

ilikeyoursleeves Thu 25-Apr-13 21:25:12

Wow steam cleaners, fridges and A CAR?!

I thought I was doing well with my crisps and nappies! I remember I once got £20 amazon voucher for something too. smile

Is it just totally random who gets picked?

LynetteScavo Thu 25-Apr-13 21:26:54

And best of all was And best of all was the the lightabers

Fantastic! (But you do need 2!)

Indith Thu 25-Apr-13 21:27:37

I don't think you get to keep the cars grin.

Mixture of what you write on the form, if you are willing to do videos and pure luck I think.

ilikeyoursleeves Thu 25-Apr-13 21:29:12

Ha ha I thought you actually kept the car, now that would be a result!

mummylin Thu 25-Apr-13 21:31:59

I tried out some washing powder last year and quite recently tested some wine. I also had some free batteries !

That fucking awful O2 joggler that didn't work, the cable gave electric shocks as well.

Over the years DH hacked it into a radio, then a digi photo frame then rehacked it into a kind of tablet.

5318008 Thu 25-Apr-13 21:36:54

Oh, and a face cream, I forget the one, maybe olay? No spf, and the 'tingle' you were sposed to get fcking hurt!

JustFoofy Thu 25-Apr-13 21:38:58

Marks and Spencers support underwear.

Loved the secret support vest. I wear it loads.

MsGee Thu 25-Apr-13 21:40:47

M&S meals and the wrinkle cream

Loved the M&S stuff. I love MN so much I persevered with the serum even though it made my skin sting. grin

noisytoys Thu 25-Apr-13 21:42:16

The Dyson hand held Hoover smile best test ever and I got to keep it smile

Indith Thu 25-Apr-13 21:42:26

oh yeah I have a joggler from MN too. They were short lived, o2 got that one a bit wrong! Didn't work as anything it should really. We used the radio on it a bit.

Graceparkhill Thu 25-Apr-13 21:43:57

I love it when I am asked for my opinion !
