PLAYin CHOC is quite possibly the kindest brand on the planet, and they are offering you the chance to win delicious treats from their range. This sustainable and ethical chocolate brand is suitable for virtually everyone, as their natural and organic recipe is a delicious combination of just cacao, coconut and vanilla! Therefore making it suitable for vegans and those with a dairy, nut, soy and gluten allergy.

For younger kids they have their popular ToyChoc boxes, with 66 animals to collect across 5 ranges. Each box comes with 2 mini chocs, a fun puzzle toy to build and a fun fact card. There is then the super smooth and creamy JustChoc Boxes for the perfect chocolate fix.

With no refined sugar, and 1/3 less sugar than most chocolates, these are a great staple to have in the cupboard at home for after school, or an excellent party favour gift. We also love that the brand is plastic-free, zero waste and 100% recyclable, so another big tick from us!


The comic strips were judged by illustrator Daniela Sosa. Daniela has illustrated several children's books including Me and McGee by Myron Uhlberg and Anabelle Sami's Agent Zaiba Investigates series. She was very impressed with all the shortlisted entries and said "Please send my congratulations and encouragement to the winners and all the participants, they did a great job!"
