Join our Twitter party with Toyota!

Join us on Thursday 6th February between 12.30pm and 1.30pm for our #ToyotaHybrid Twitter party.

Toyota Prius


The lovely people at Toyota have invited us all to a Twitter party - and they're giving away a brand flippin' new 16b iPad Mini to one lucky party-goer! All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is to come along and tell us how you get your children to shut up keep your children entertained on long car journeys.


One of the best things about Toyota Hybrids are that they are much quieter than your regular motor due to their very clever hybrid technology - unfortunately, the technology behind your kids is a little more complicated! So we want to know - how *do* you keep 'em quiet on a long journey?

This Twitter party is sponsored by Toyota, here's what they have to say:

Prius Plus"We are the leaders in hybrid technology and have sold over 6 million globally – Hybrids are really very simple and easy to drive they run on a combination of a traditional petrol engine and an electric motor – Our hybrids switch seamlessly between the two so you always get the best of both worlds. All you have to do is drive the way you normally do."

If you want to know more about hybrid cars and their benefits, an expert from the Toyota team will be on hand to answer all and any of your questions.
